13 Reasons Why will, but they will be missing their central star: Hannah Baker. 

 

Netflix has renewed their original series for a third season, the popular streaming service announced Wednesday via social media. The 13 new episodes are set to premiere in 2019.

 

As for the late Hannah Baker (played by Katherine Langford), she won't be making a return. 

If the story does continue, and certainly there is lots more to know about a lot of these characters, then the spotlight focus on Hannah Baker is probably done.

"Should we get a season 3, the loss of Hannah will continue to be the inciting traumatic event for this group of kids and parents. It will always be part of the story," showrunner Brian Yorkey previously told Entertainment Weekly.

 

"But I dont see a tremendous continued presence for Hannah because I think we needed her to finish telling everyone elses side of her story and we needed her so that Clay could get to a point of saying, 'I love you and I let you go,' " he added. "If the story does continue, and certainly there is lots more to know about a lot of these characters, then the spotlight focus on Hannah Baker is probably done."
