13 Reasons Why became the center of attention with its first season only. Consequently, the follow-up series are also avidly traced by fans. As a result, with season 3 ending the talks for season 4 have spread wide.
Season 3 ended with the reason of Bryce Walker’s death unveiled. Importantly, the trailer teased that the story of season 3 would revolve around his murder mystery.
First of all, Clay still portrays the protagonist from whose view the whole show is observed. He goes on to investigate the culprit behind Walker’s death.
Although season 3 ended, Netflix made an announced that the fourth season would wrap up the story of the show. Also, the announcement was made during the release of season 3.
Apart from this, there is no inkling of the story arc that the show may take. Season 1 was based on the novel by the same name. While season 2 and 3 are launched to milk from the popularity of the dark teenage show.
Clearly, it depends on the writers where they pave the way for the characters. It should be noted that the makers of the show have said that the characters will graduate in the fourth season bringing an end to the series.
The cast would include the same: Dylan Minnette as Clay Jensen,Christian Navarro as Tony Padilla, Alisha Boe as Jessica Davis, Brandon Flynn as Justin Foley, Miles Heizer as Alex Standall, Ross Butler as Zach Dempsey, Devin Druid as Tyler Down, Amy Hargreaves as Lainie Jensen, Anne Winters as Chlöe Rice, Steven Weber as Gary Bolan and Grace Saif as Ani Achola.
Clearly, the chances of Katherine Langford returning seem meagre, but the makers may utilize her to grab viewership. Moreover, Bryce Walker may appear in flashbacks to reveal more of the storyline.
Hannah Baker’s parents might make an appearance, but nothing can be said.
Especially a new addition has perked up the interest of the viewers. Oscar nominee Gary Sinise will play Dr. Robert Ellman, a household therapist who treats Clay.
There is no official date of its release, and everyone is left to conjecture. Nevertheless, it is confirmed that season 4 will follow it’s predecessors and has a run of 13 episodes.
Despite the doubts, it wasn’t Clay who killed Bryce or Tony, Jess or Justin. Alternatively, Bryce’s killer was revealed to be Alex Standall on the night of homecoming.
Clearly, Alex Standall played a part in Walker’s death. But the blame was pushed on Monty. Not only was he in jail for sexual assault of Tyler in season 2.
Interestingly, the character died till the end of season 3.
Last but not least the show is set to wrap up the shoot till January 2020. Nonetheless, it remains to be seen if the show would revive the first season’s popularity or remain a disappointment like a season 3.
