Netflix announced that the controversial teen drama has been renewed, despite calls for its cancellation following the graphic and upsetting nature of some scenes in season two.
A short clip was posted on the official Twitter page, captioned: “What happens now? Season 3 of #13ReasonsWhy is coming.”
Another 13 episodes are set to air next year, with the official release date to be announced nearer the time.
However, Hannah Baker (played by Katherine Langford) won’t feature in season three, as the series will not be about her suicide.
Showrunner Brian Yorkey explained that “what happened to Hannah will always be the first clause of the story”.
Season three will focus on the other characters.
He told Hollywood Reporter: “We’re following the stories of these characters.
“I always think there’s more story to tell, but… if there is a future for the show, to me, it’s about these characters.
“And not necessarily a new set of reasons or a new set of tapes.”
Monty actor Timothy Granaderos teased that there is more to come following his character’s grotesque sexual assault against Tyler (Devin Druid) in the school bathroom.
Actor Timothy told Popsugar that more of Monty’s home life may be explored.
He said: “I know that he’s the aggressor and the bully, but bullies need help too.
“You know, they’re victims of a different type of mental health issue.”
Clay actor Dylan Minnette also wants the characters featured to display a huge turnaround.
He told Elle: “Clay was pretty cruel to Tyler in season one, and Tyler to Clay.
“But then you see where they end up at the end of this season. Even though these horrible times they’ve had, and these mixed emotions about each other, they can come together and find a sense of community when they need it the most.
“This is such a dark show, and an honest show, that it’s nice to also have those moments of hope.”
He added: “There is still hope for these characters.”
