Netflix’s controversial teen drama “13 Reasons Why” will return for a season 3.
The streaming site confirmed the news by sharing a teaser video on social media on Wednesday. In the clip, viewers return to the hallways of Liberty High School, where a student is seen grabbing a brown bag from a locker.

When “13 Reasons Why” returns next year, the series’ breakout star – Katherine Langford – will likely be missing the action. The 22-year-old actress shared an emotional goodbye to her character, Hannah Baker, on Instagram shortly after the Season 2 premiere.

"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

Co-star Tommy Dorfman seemingly confirmed Katherine’s exit from the show after sharing this selfie to his Instagram on May 28.
“Gonna miss working w this goofball,” he captioned the pic.
