And while it’s unlikely you’ll see the show until 2018, don’t expect the drama to be short of controversy surrounding its portrayal of suicide. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Dylan Minnette (who plays Clay Jensen) said they wouldn’t “sugarcoat” the material for season two: “The whole goal of the show is to be real and tell the story in a true way. And if they weren’t going to do that in more scenes, I don’t think they’d keep going with the show.
“They aren’t going to sugarcoat anything. We haven’t done it from day one, and I don’t think we’re ever going to do it. I’m sure it’s going to be just as important and dark as last season.”
That’s saying a lot considering the first series. The debut instalments followed Clay Jensen as he mourned the death of his friend Hannah Baker – who leaves a collection of tapes explaining the reasons behind her decision to take her own life.
