Filming for second season of 13 Reasons Why has begun
13 Reasons Why star Christian Navarro has announced filming is now underway for season two of the Netflix series.
The actor who plays Tony in the serious suicide drama confirmed the news on Twitter yesterday when he wrote: “Day One. S2. Ready to make some magic.”
The next instalment is expected to land sometime in 2018 and will consist of another 13 episodes starring Katherine Langford, Dylan Minnette, Mark Pellegrino and Kate Walsh.
Showrunner Brian Yorkey recently responded to fans questioning where the storyline can go now that Jessica’s (played by Alisha Boe) storyline is “done”. Speaking to EW, he explained: “When people intimate that Jessica’s story is done, I find that a horrific thought because Jessica is just beginning the process of recovering from her rape, and we have a rapist who has not in any way been brought to justice.
“To leave those two things hanging out there in the world would be upsetting.”
Last month, Netflix announced there will be an additional warning added to the start of the series about “graphic content”, and they will strengthen the warnings already in place for other graphic episodes. This followed criticisms from mental health organisations, who argued the 13 Reasons Why could be potentially harmful or triggering for certain viewers.
“There has been a tremendous amount of discussion about our series 13 Reasons Why,” said Netflix in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.
“While many of our members find the show to be a valuable driver for starting important conversation with their families, we have also heard concern from those who feel the series should carry additional advisories.
“Currently the episodes that carry graphic content are identified as such… Moving forward, we will add an additional viewer warning card before the first episode as an extra precaution for those about to start the series and have also strengthened the messaging and resource language in the existing cards for episodes that contain graphic subject matter.”
13 Reasons Why season one is available to view on Netflix.
