13 Reasons Why has officially been renewed for a third season on Netflix.

This news comes shortly after the show's second season premiered last month.

Season 2 picked up a few months after the end of the events of the first season and continues to deal with the fallout of Hannah’s suicide.

According to Netflix, production on Season 3 will start up later this year, and we can expect the new season to start streaming sometime in 2019.

On May 25, a week after Season 2 premiered, Katherine Langford announced on Instagram that she likely won’t be returning to 13 Reasons Why.

A major storyline in the most recent season involves Clay learning to say goodbye to Hannah, concluding with a memorial scene for the character.

“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,” Langford wrote in an Instagram caption.

“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.”
