While we await final confirmation for the third season of 13 Reasons Why, central character Katherine Langford has revealed a majot spoiler by bidding farewell to her beloved character Hannah Baker.
Taking to Instagram, the 22-year-old posted a photo of an iconic scene from the TV series which included a mural dedicated to Hannah in Monet's and wrote a heartfelt caption to say part ways with the character that made her a household name.
"'Hannah...I love you...and I let you go' Those are the words I was able to say six months ago, and now can finally share with you...As most of you know @13reasonswhy was my first ever job and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to tell Hannah's story so fully in season 1, and to be asked back for a season 2. Thankyou to @netflix @paramountpics@anoncontent , the incredible producers, creatives, cast and crew for making these last 2 years so special. And to all of you here - Thankyou for filling my life with love and light 🙏 This show will always be a special part of my life, and regardless of whether Hannah is there or not, I know that I will continue to strive to do work that is meaningful and has a positive impact - whether that be in film, music, or any other form of art. There is a lot coming up this next year, and I can't wait to share it with you 💖#hannahbaker."
In the past, the Australian actress was asked about the future of her popular character in an exclusive interview with The Hollywood Reporter, to which she replied she hinted she wasn't sure about if Hannah Baker would come back to our screens.
Following this report, in a chat with Entertainment Weekly Langford said that why she wasn't sure if Season Two would be her final appearance on the show, regardless she was ready to say goodbye to her Hannah Baker. "The challenge was when you tell a character’s story so fully, and then you have to come back as a version of her that’s filtered through other people’s eyes; that required a lot of trust," she said "I guess if I could put Hannah’s life into season 1 and then say it was kind of like being in purgatory for season 2, and then being able to officially say goodbye to her. It definitely felt like time."
Agh, Katherine we get it, but Hannah Baker will forever live on in our hearts (as well as Clay's.)
