If you're anxiously awaiting the third season of 13 Reasons Why, rest assured that it'll be worth the wait.
According to Dylan Minnette, who plays the show's lead character Clay, a few of the season's scripts "are the show's best."

Minette will return on the new season, along with Ross Butler, Devin Druid, Justin Prentice, Alisha Boe, Brandon Flynn, Miles Heizer, and more. Katherine Langford, however, won't be reprising her role of Hannah Baker. In May, Langford took to Instagram to announce that her time on 13 Reasons Why had come to an end.
"Hannah...I love you...and I let you go" Those are the words I was able to say six months ago, and now can finally share with you as my journey on @13reasonswhy has officially come to an END! As most of you know, this was my first ever job and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to tell Hannah's story so fully in season 1, and to be asked back for a season 2. Thankyou to @netflix @paramountpics @anoncontent , the incredible producers, creatives, cast and crew for making these last 2 years so special. And to all of you here - Thankyou for filling my life with love and light 🙏 This show will always be a special part of my life, and regardless of whether Hannah is there or not, I know that I will continue to strive to do work that is meaningful and has a positive impact - whether that be in film, music, or any other form of art. There is a lot coming up this next year, and I can't wait to share it with you 💖 #hannahbaker
But showrunner Brian Yorker reassured fans last June that "what happened to Hannah will always be the first clause of the story."
"The rest of the story is about young people, as so many young people, maybe all young people today (learn) how to heal from the things that have hurt them…to make the world that they want it to be … and above all, how to take care of each other," Yorker said.
Filming for season 3 began last August, though production was halted by the November wildfires in California. There's currently no release date set for the show; however, 13 Reasons Why is expected to hit Netflix before 2019 ends.
