“13 Reasons Why” may finally be done telling
Hannah Baker’s Story.
The hit Netflix series premiered its controversial second
season on May 18, and now its breakout star is ready to move on. On Friday, Katherine Langford confirmed she
has no plans to return for a potential third season of “13 Reasons
Why” in an emotional Instagram post where she says goodbye to her character.
“‘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,” she wrote. The line
references an emotional scene between Hannah and Clay in the Season 2 finale.
“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,” Katherine
The actress went on to imply that the show has wrapped up
Hannah’s storyline, as Season 2 seemingly brings closure to her friends 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,” she
added. “There is a lot coming up this next year, and I can’t wait to share
this next chapter with you.”
Katherine has undoubtedly become the breakout star of
“13 Reasons Why” – even scoring a Golden Globe nomination for the show.
While Season 1 centered around her character’s tragic decision to commit
suicide, “13 Reasons Why” struggled to keep Hannah in the second
season as the tapes were done.
While Katherine may be out, the show will likely go on.
Season 2 ends with a huge cliffhanger, leaving the fate of many Liberty High
Tigers up in the air.
