13 Reasons Why Boss Offers Up First Season 2 Details: Will There Be More Tapes? – eonline
13 Reasons Why fans desperate for information approximately the just-announced moment season, this is your tape.
It’s only been 48 hours since executive producer Selena Gomez announced that the controversial and highly addicting Netflix series would return for another season of intestine-wrenching high school drama, and details are already trickling in approximately what precisely those strange episodes might explore like. And whether you thought Hannah Baker’s anecdote was over, consider again.
“I consider one of the things that is still hanging out there is this question of is someone responsible for Hannah’s death? Is the school responsible? Who is responsible, whether anyone is,” showrunner Brian Yorkey told EW. “One way we’ll explore that question is through the trial and also through total of these kids reflecting on where they are a few months down the road and what other secrets are being uncovered.”
It’s through those newly uncovered secrets that we’ll derive the opportunity to know Hannah a slight bit better. “That’s going to catch us into the past, into Hannah’s anecdote,” he continued. We’re going to derive some strange context for events we already know approximately and we’re going to see a lot of things we hadn’t even heard approximately yet that fill in some really spirited gaps in our understanding of who Hannah Baker was and what her life was.”
That said, don’t expect to be hearing Katherine Langford‘s lovely voice as narrator moving forward. “There’s voiceover in every episode, but the voiceover is no longer Hannah,” Yorkey admitted. “The voiceover and the stories that are being told bring us into the past and back to the present much in the way that Hannah’s voiceover did in season 1. So there will still be that weaving of time frames and seeing them unfold and how they impact each other as they proceed.”
Yorkey knows season one left a lot of questions unanswered, and he plans to address them total, while offering something strange from the experience of the first season: Hope. “We’re going to reply total of the burning questions that people absorb approximately [the reveal],” he explained. “Is Tyler going to achieve something? What’s going to happen to Alex? Will Bryce be brought to justice? We’re going to reply those questions but I consider, even more, we’re going to continue to explore very truthfully and very honestly at what they proceed through, even when it’s painful at times. But I consider what we’re going to discover is, as they open to emerge from this very dismal time, there’s hope and there is some light to be found. That’s my hope besides, and I consider that that’s also truthful.”
While it would be foolish to expect the discovery of another set of cassette tapes in season two, Yorkey did admit that another type of outdated technology will play a role in the strange season. “The tapes are still obviously on people’s minds, but there is a different sort of analog technology that plays a hugely indispensable role in season two,” he revealed. “So the cassette tapes aren’t at the center of it — those two boxes of tapes are still hanging around and matter to people — but there will be a strange piece of technology for 13-year-olds to Google and try to understand what it was.”
13 Reasons Why season two will debut on Netflix in 2018.
