Controversial Netflix series ‘13 Reasons Why’ has been given the green light for a third season.

Season three will consist of another 13 episodes and return in 2019. Production will resume later this year.

The news comes less than three weeks after the series’ second season dropped on Netflix (you can check out our review for it here).

The show follows the aftermath of a young girl named Hannah Baker’s suicide.

Leading cast members, such as Dylan Minnette (Clay), Miles Heizer (Alex) and Alisha Boe (Jessica) among others, are expected to return. However, Katherine Langford, who played Hannah, previously announced that she won’t be returning to the show.

Showrunner Brian Yorkey, who will return for the third season, previously told THR that if a third season goes ahead, it would be "about these characters, and not necessarily a new set of reasons or a new set of tapes. Someone else might do that, but that’s not my job to do that."

Season two ended with the cliffhanger of a thwarted school shooting so its aftermath will likely be the pick-up point for season three.
