It’s maybe Netflix’s most controversial series, but there’s more to come from 13 Reasons Why after the launch of its third season in August 2019. The final episode of season three eventually exposed the truth about the death of Bryce Walker, but will there be a fourth season, but when?
Netflix announced on August 1, 2019, that 13 Reasons Why would be returning for a fourth season. But there’s no official release date yet, and it’s difficult even to guess as to when it might be there’s been no set release pattern for the show since it originated at the end of March 2017, with season two releasing in May 2018 and the third season in August 2019. Expect that the next season will span 13 episodes, like the three before it.
The following series regulars are all expected to return:
Dylan Minnette as Clay Jensen
Christian Navarro as Tony Padilla
Alisha Boe as Jessica Davis
Brandon Flynn as Justin Foley
Miles Heizer as Alex Standall
Ross Butler as Zach Dempsey
Devin Druid as Tyler Down
Amy Hargreaves as Lainie Jensen
Anne Winters as Chlöe Rice
Steven Weber as Gary Bolan
Grace Saif as Ani Achola
After the appearance in the first and second seasons, Katherine Langford did not star in season three as Hannah Baker, but it’s not out of the ranges of the possibility that her character could repeat in flashbacks next season. Likewise Kate Walsh as Olivia Baker and Brian d’Arcy James as Andy Baker.
In season three, the murder of Bryce Walker was central, so while Justin Prentice’s character is now six feet under but it’s possible he could reappear in flashbacks. Derek Luke was fired as Liberty High School’s counselor in the show’s first two seasons but made a guest appearance in season three. Could that happen again?
Granaderos is also not expected to return, and Deaken Bluman could also return as Winston after he confronted Ani. Oscar nominee Gary Sinise, playing Dr Robert Ellman, a family therapist who treats Clay will be a new addition for the final season.
