Hannah Returns in Full ‘13 Reasons Why’ Season 2 Trailer
Nothing stays buried at Liberty High. The cast of 13 Reasons Why is officially back and in more danger than ever, as Season 2 goes on trial with a first full trailer for the life-and-death teen drama. And if that weren’t enough – Hannah Baker has more story to tell.
Following the prior tease and announcement of a May 18 premiere (next Friday), Netflix finally came forth with official footage of the hotly-anticipated second season. And while the spirit of Katherine Langford’s Hannah Baker lingers – literally, per the trailer – showrunners have clarified that Season 2 will focus more on sexual assault than teen suicide. Check out the full trailer above, along with new photos below:
Here’s the full synopsis for Season 2:
13 Reasons Why Season 2 picks up in the aftermath of Hannah’s death and the start of our characters’ complicated journeys toward healing and recovery. Liberty High prepares to go on trial, but someone will stop at nothing to keep the truth surrounding Hannah’s death concealed. A series of ominous polaroids lead Clay and his classmates to uncover a sickening secret and a conspiracy to cover it up.
Season 2 will answer the big questions left hanging in the balance at the end of Season 1:
- How will Jessica heal in the aftermath of her assault? -
- Will Bryce be brought to justice? -
- How will Clay move on from the devastating loss of Hannah? -
- What happened to Alex? -
- What choices will Tyler make in the face of his social isolation?-
Elsewhere of Season 2, Netflix confirmed results of a Northwestern study inspired them to create a new cast intro that opens either season. The second run will also feature a new after-show different from Season 1’s Beyond the Reasons; set to include “many actors, experts and educators who helped inform our approach.” The streaming service also released a new video spotlighting viewers affected by the series, and aims to do more before the Season 2 premiere.
Season 2 moves beyond the novel created by Jay Asher (who himself was cut from the franchise over unrelated harassment allegations). Check out more teasers below, and stay tuned for the May 18 premiere.
