“13 Reasons Why” had to shut down production on season 2 a few months ago due to the California Wildfires, but since the crew has gone back to work and just wrapped production.
The hit (and controversial) Netflix series is produced by Selena Gomez who took to Instagram today to share an update on filming. “And this year wraps up with another committed journey with @13reasonswhy – Season 2 is coming,” she posted. She posted photobooth pics from the wrap party with the show’s two leads – Katherine Langford & Dylan Minnette – as well as a group shot with a majority of the cast from season 1 who she sent major thanks. “To every person on this project, thank you for coming back. Good or bad we are committed to having the tough conversations, to telling the story that can start change.”
“13 Reasons Why” was met with criticism as it told the story of Hannah Baker, a teenager who committed suicide and left behind cassette tapes for 13 people explaining her story. Despite the criticism, the show brought up many important issues and sparked conversation. Katherine Langford took on the titular role of Hannah and her exceptional work in the series earned the newcomer her first Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a TV Drama.
Selena took to Instagram to congratulate Katherine as did many of her co-stars. There is no release date for season 2 of “13 Reasons Why” just yet, but we’re guessing it will premiere around March.
Many congrats to Katherine Langford on her Golden Globe nom for 13 Reasons Why. Hannah is such an important character, and not an easy part to portray by any means. So deserved. ? pic.twitter.com/0ufl8LytMF
