We’ve had the release date, we’ve had the first trailer, and now we have the first exclusive images for 13 Reasons Why season two.
And there’s lots to discover…
The Netflix series returns this May, and will continue to confront tough issues in season two. Creator Brian Yorkey has already said that the new episodes will focus more on character Jessica Davis (Alisha Boe) as she attempts to move on from the sexual assault she suffered in season one.
Another image shows Tony being comforted after his beloved Ford Mustang is smashed up, embraced by new season two character Caleb (played by actor RJ Brown).
The final new photo shows Clay (Dylan Minnette), looking across his room towards a girl. In the image it’s hard to tell if this is Hannah Baker in flashback or a new girl. Either way, it feels as if Clay is still struggling to move on from Hannah’s death.
“When season two starts, you find that Clay is trying to move on from the memory of Hannah and the events of season one,” Minnette said recently. “He’s just trying to live his life in any way he can.
“When this new trial begins, it brings him back into old memories of Hannah, and brings him back to trying to find justice for her again. Whether he wants to or not, he can’t really help it.”

13 Reasons Why season two will be released on Friday 18th May 2018, and is expected to become Netflix’s biggest release this May following the success of – and debate around – season one.
Season two 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
In place of Hannah’s tapes, Netflix says we can expect Polaroid photos to be a key part of the storyline in season two, leading Clay and other characters into “a sickening secret and a conspiracy to cover it up”.
