Even know we don’t really know much about the new series, but what we do know is that it centres around discovering who killed Bryce Walker, with just about everyone being a guilty suspect, given how many enemies he had.
The clip starts with an announcement through the microphone at school, telling popular characters including Justin, Tony and Clay that Bryce had been found dead.
Bryce’s mother can then be seen talking to a police officer, who promises he will get to the bottom of the case before we get a glimpse of all the suspects, including Jessica and Tyler.
Netflix teased the new series with its official synopsis.
‘Eight months after preventing Tyler from committing an unthinkable act at Spring Fling, Clay, Tony, Jessica, Alex, Justin, and Zach find ways to shoulder the burden of the cover-up together while helping Tyler move toward recovery.
But when the aftermath of a tumultuous Homecoming game culminates in the disappearance of a football player, and Clay finds himself under police scrutiny, it’s up to a shrewd outsider to steer the group through an investigation that threatens to lay bare everyone’s deepest secrets.
The stakes are raised in this riveting third season of 13 Reasons Why, as the consequences of even the most well-intended actions can alter a life forever.’
Furthermore, “13 Reasons Why” has been renewed for Season 4 at Netflix, which will also be the show’s final season, Variety has learned.
They report that season 4 is currently in production and will feature the core cast’s graduation from Liberty High. In addition, Season 3 of the controversial series will debut on Aug. 23 and will consist of 13 episodes.
The Netflix show, which was released in March 2017, centred on 17-year-old Hannah Baker (played by Katherine Langford), who takes her own life, but leaves behind 13 cassette tapes explaining her reasons, which her school friend Clay Jensen (Dylan Minnette) listens to as he struggles to come to terms with her sudden death.
Just last month, Netflix removed the three minute suicide scene from Season One of the programme, following on from the ‘advice of medical experts’.
In a statement, the streaming-giant said: “We’ve heard from many young people that 13 Reasons Why encouraged them to start conversations about difficult issues like depression and suicide and get help – often for the first time.
“As we prepare to launch season three later this summer, we’ve been mindful about the ongoing debate around the show. 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 one.”
13 Reasons Why season three will arrive on Netflix on 23rd August.
