Season 1 follows the life of high schooler Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford) leading up to her unexpected and tragic suicide. Hannah leaves her reasons for taking her life on 13 pre-recorded cassette tapes with a specific person to blame for a part in her life that led to her decision. The first season was extremely heavy and structured in the way the story was told.
The trailer above shows Hannah appearing as a ghostly vision which only Clay Jensen (Dylan Minnette) can see as he continues to seek justice for Hannah. Season 2 will be brought to the courtroom as student(s) testify against the school, alongside Hannah’s parents whom feel the school system failed their daughter.
The group will also uncover previously unknown relationships that will shake our understanding of season 1 largely in part because Hannah is said to not be the only one. In addition to the visions, Jessica (Alisha Boe ) seems to be bullied into keeping quiet about her very own sexual assault, and Bryce (Justin Prentice) who is being called out for his actions throughout the previous season.
