Netflix have finally confirmed when 13 Reasons Why season two will be released. Tweeting a new teaser video about the second season, Netflix captioned the clip with a release date for May 18th.

The release date has been a closely guarded secret up until now. Ever since the year anniversary of the first season back in March, fans have been eagerly awaiting news of a release date. The latest rumours were that the show would drop in June or in the Summer.

The cast weren't much help either. Christian Navarro, who plays Tony Padilla, teased fans on his Twitter but ultimately refused to spill the tea, while new cast member Chelsea Alden claimed no one has informed her when it drops - even though she's on the show.

In March, Netflix announced that there will be an additional after-show series called 'Beyond The Reasons' that will debrief the audience on certain topics in the show, such as self-harm, sexual assault and so on. Mental health experts, cast members, writers and producers will all contribute to the panels to discuss the series' heavy subject material. There will also be a PSA before every episode which features the cast out of character, speaking directly to camera and the audience, pointing out certain trigger warnings and reminding viewers that help is always available should they need it.
