When 13 Reasons Why was released in 2017, it quickly became the most talked-about show of the year. Now, in its third season the popular Netflix series is both focusing on another death and reevaluating the one that made it so famous to begin with.
Ahead of the release of its third instalment, Netflix announced it would be pulling the controversial season one scene in which Hannah, played by Australian actress Katherine Langford, takes her own life. "As we prepare to launch Season 3 later this summer, we’ve been mindful about the ongoing debate around the show,” the statement read. “So on the advice of medical experts, including Dr. Christine Moutier, Chief Medical Officer at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, we’ve decided with creator Brian Yorkey and the producers to edit the scene in which Hannah takes her own life from Season 1.”
According to Deadline, the upcoming season of 13 Reasons Why picks up eight months after Clay, Tony, Jessica, Alex, Justin, and Zach prevented Tyler from doing something very bad. The group bonds over the cover-up until "the aftermath of a tumultuous Homecoming game culminates in the disappearance of a football player, and Clay finds himself under police scrutiny."
Deadline also reveals a new character will be central to the storyline. "It’s up to a shrewd outsider to steer the group through an investigation that threatens to lay bare everyone’s deepest secrets."
