Filming is currently underway of the season 2 of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why. Producer Selena Gomez recently shared that she’s extremely happy about where the series is going.
Actors Dylan Minnette and Katherine Langford recently spoke with Entertainment Tonight about the show’s upcoming season.
“We’re not really halfway through, but we’re getting there,” Minnette told ET Canada.
“I’m excited that I get to be back and work with the people that I love, because I love all the people on this show,” Langford added. “But it’s also, I think, really exciting that we get to continue the conversation that we started in season one. So, I’m excited.”
“I think every single word from everyone across the world has been heard by everyone involved with the show,” he explained, adding that the writers are focused on “telling the story that needs to be told.” Katherine also noted that the second season “continues the discussion from season 1,” and that she’s proud to be a part of the ongoing project.
It’s certainly true that talking about mental health helps lower the stigma surrounding some of these issues, which is essential in helping people all over the world feel less alone. Hopefully, season 2 will be able to continue that important conversation while simultaneously providing viewers with positive messages and tools for seeking help. “You’re not saving lives, as an actor, but you can come pretty close sometimes, very rarely with a project, and I feel like we have gotten there with this,” Dylan added. “So, I’m happy about it.”
“We’ll see more and more of the mystery getting revealed, and I think you see Mrs. Baker still questing for the answers of what happened to her daughter,” Walsh said. “We’ve already started shooting, so I know where it’s going.”
