Anyone with a Netflix subscription/Facebook account has seen or been exposed to 13 Reason’s Why. And even though it copped a fair bit of backlash, I am not here to bag it. What I am here to do is to voice that while fans are jumping for joy because a third season has been confirmed, we ought to watch ourselves because we could very well be witnessing the KILLING of a great show.
As a fan, I’m scared. More afraid we’re going to overdo it and churn the story until there’s nothing left of it. In Season One it was NO spoiler that Hannah Baker committed suicide and tape-by-tape, we discovered who and what affected her decision. In season two we cringed at poor Clay, who simply cannot get over his first crush, but let’s be real – it was plain FREAKY to have a ghost version of Katherine Langford walking around the school hallways and entering eerie courtrooms.
So what exactly is there left to explore? The last thing we saw on S2 was a damaged Tyler hobbling into Tony's car leaving a vulnerable Clay with a gun in hand as police approached him.
Perhaps Tony and Tyler will get caught in a car crash while escaping? Or maybe Bryce will be in college and we'll finally see him own up to being a rapist.
I don't know, Selena Gomez' sombre tunes may have been added to our Spotify playlists and we did learn that Zac and Hannah had a whimsical romance but there's NOTHING left to explore in this series.
I mean what do they hope to achieve?
Still not convinced? Here are 13 Reasons Why our fave teen show needs to be put to a halt.
1. Katherine Langford has confirmed she's not in Season 3.
2. Bryce is in college now, who will we hate on?
3. Hannah's mum is in NYC, surely the school dramas can't be taken out of Liberty High.
4. We cannot fathom seeing Justin return to drugs again.
5. It's getting ridiculous only Dylan Minnette looks like he's a high school student.
6. Hannah's dad has a new family and his affair was beige enough to sit through in Season 2.
7. We're scared to see Tyler's story continue because honestly, we are still not over the sodomizing scene. A janitor's broom-stick still makes us erk.
8. Clay said his farewell to Hannah and we cannot imagine him without her.
9. We don't want to see Jess break Alex's heart.
10. The new counseller is Jessminda from Bend It Like Beckham and we don't believe her.
11. Selena Gomez needs to stick to lip-syncing.
12. The actor who plays Zac is currently being sued for attempted murder and as awful as that is, we're not keen on a fill-in actor.
13. Did we mention Katherine Langford won't be in it? Agh.
