Netflix is on the cusp of renewing 13 Reasons Why.

The streamer is near a deal for a second season of the controversial drama about teen suicide, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Sources tell THR that a writers' room for the sophomore run has been up and running for a few weeks. Netflix declined comment.

Obviously. Surely the biggest Netflix show since Orange is the New Black?

As much as I liked the first season, the ending was stupid and horribly anti-climactic. You can tell they purposefully half-assed it just so they could fit in a second season and honestly I don't feel like this is the type of show that needs one. They could have wrapped up everyone's story easily in the finale or with one more episode. This just seems forced :doc:  Like I don't know if I can sit through another 12 episodes of slow build up just to end in another half-assed finale that leads no where

Really? There are a few things left to be cleared up but I don't think it needs a whole new season to do so. They could easily fix everything with a one off episode instead of dragging it on like they are doing now

It wasn't anticlimactic. You were only promised a listen of all the tapes and that's what you got. Don't be entitled :cm:

Aheeemmm spoilers for those who havent watched.

 

That "person" at the end didn't die though. He just suffered a gunshot wound to the head. Isn't he in critical condition?

It may not even be 13 episodes tho. Black mirror only has like 4 episodes per season. Netflix doesn't follow the rules of cable television because they don't aim for syndication.

Nn. According to the principal, he did. No one knows what actually happened.

 

OT: YASS. They need to solve some plots. :alexz:

As much as I would want one it doesn't need it. THeyre better doing an epilogue. The show left me wanting more but the ending sufficed.

Most series on Netflix are usually 8 (for miniseries) or 13 episodes (for full season). Black Mirror is more of an anomaly I think, especially since it was on BBC for the first 2 seasons. In any case I didn't think this needed a second season.

This soothes me a bit. If anything I hope they take this route.

TBH, they should've flash forward to the future and showed who ended up getting put away to jail etc. a second season is so pointless. If they're just gonna wrap up the series by putting out a few more episodes, they should've just finished it all in 1 season.

But how was it not anticlimactic? They literally didn't resolve anything. The least they could have done was give Hannah's parents' story some type of closure. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the show for what it was, but I expect my shows to have stories that actually lead somewhere :cm:

This show annoys me. It comes across as revenge suicide and it is a negative influence on its audience. 

 

Also it is quite pathetic to me how these white girls who adore the show hate Jessica so much because "she was mean to hannah and justin" but sympathize with the cute white boy asshole Justin.

Exactly this. Like I just don't see where else this show can go, other than

1) making season 2 extremely short just to tie up everyone's stories

2) starting an entirely new story following one of the other kids, most likely Alex, considering the way they left him in the finale

 

But I can't see people being here for another season following the same formula even if it centers around a different character. Like, the novelty of the suicidal person leaving their "reasons why" wears off really quick imo. It's just not the type of show that demands multiple seasons. Of course, I'd love to be proven wrong. Hopefully they can find a good way to make season 2 just as gripping as season 1 but I'm very skeptical.
