WARNING: This section contains spoilers for 13 Reasons Why season 3
No official information has been released yet for the plot of season four but the third series finale gives some hints.
At the end of season three, it was revealed that Alex Standall (Miles Heizer) was Bryce’s killer after he threw him into the river.

But, this does not seem to be the end of the story as Winston (Deaken Bluman) confronted Ani Achola (Grace Saif) about the lie as he was Monty’s alibi that night.
Whether or not he will talk to the police seems likely to be a major plot point of season four.
Another potential thread is the reveal that a fisherman pulled out the bag full of guns out the lake.
These had been dumped there after Tyler’s school shooting attempt at the end of season two.
As this has not become public knowledge yet, fans could see Tyler face some consequences next year.
