Netflix released an official trailer for “13 Reasons Why: Season 3” on Thursday morning. The show returns with all-new episodes later this month, and fans can get a first look at the new storylines thanks to the new trailer. The show returns in late August, and the new season has 13 episodes.
Netflix released the video on social media, telling followers, “A new harrowing crime unfolds in Season 3 of 13 Reasons Why.” You still have time to watch seasons one and two if you need to catch up on the story. The second season begins in the aftermath of Hannah’s death and the start of the characters’ complicated journeys toward healing and recovery. Liberty High prepares to go on trial, but someone will stop at nothing to keep the truth surrounding Hannah’s death concealed. A series of ominous polaroids lead Clay and his classmates to uncover a sickening secret and a conspiracy to cover it up.
Netflix’s description of season three reads, “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.”
