The TV show that is polarising opinions doesn’t look to be slowing down, with our biggest hint yet that season three will happen.
It seems that the high school used for 13 Reasons Why has been booked out for further filming of the controversial show.
The Sonoma West Times reports that the secondary school used in filming has approved their third licensing agreement with Paramount Pictures, allowing the production company to again film at Sebastopol High School.
“Production would take place later than previous years, starting in mid-June and ending by mid-December,” the news site reported.

One week. ———- I know a lot of you are super excited to watch the new season, and there are some incredibly valuable discussions to be had from the show. That being said, as important as it was to come back for a season 2, please know that like season 1, we cover very prevalent issues and things that may be sensitive for some. @netflix have worked incredibly hard to make sure there are resources available before, during and after the show (even though let's remember this a TV show first and foremost and there for entertainment) please consider if the show is right for you before watching x
While the series has attracted a lot of attention – both positive and negative – we are eager to see how the plot continues to unfold after the cliffhanger ending to season two.
Whether you love or hate the series, it has undoubtedly opened up a dialogue about mental health, drug abuse, sexual assault and gun control, especially with teens and young adults.
One main point of difference in season three – presuming it does in fact go ahead – is the departure from the story line of Hannah Baker who has been one of the titular characters in the first two seasons.

"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 my journey on @13reasonswhy has officially come to an END! As most of you know, this 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
13 Reasons Why is spurred on by the events before, during and after the suicide of Baker (played by Aussie actress Katherine Langford) both the ripple effect and subsequent consequences.
Langford posted an emotional ‘goodbye’ to her character on social media this week.
This news is especially important in relation to the narrative of suicide – and has been a main talking point after the character was seen throughout the first two seasons.
