13 Reasons Why

Season 2 (2018)

The creator of For thirteen reasons (13 Reasons Why), Brian Yorkey, does not have in this second season a book to sustain himself, but Jay Asher, the author of the original novel, has been part of the team that has written the thirteen scripts that make up this new batch of episodes, in which on the one hand the audience will know the impact of the final decision of Hannah and on the other hand will be exposed a series of new problems that will put in check the already known characters.

The series goes with great courage in a multitude of issues that are left as little sketched to open a debate in society and is very aware that they are sensitive issues for the general public (the controversy will not cease), so that the new episodes start with a message launched by the protagonists and that leaves things very clear: season 2 of For thirteen reasons is part of a series of fiction, but if you are going through some of the problems that are narrated, perhaps not the best moment to see it and they have also enabled a help portal for those who need it.

One of the messages that most clearly launches us throughout this new season is that silence is never the solution to anything, so there is coherence in these warnings, which also head the hardest episodes, and only in the form of text. And we give faith that what is shown is quite strong and can hurt sensibilities (without having gone through something even remotely similar, they remove quite a lot).

In the first season of this Netflix series we got to know the story of Hannah from her point of view, being her, the main narrator. Now, we will hear many more voices. Those of all those called to testify in court. In this order: Tyler, Courtney, Jessica, Marcus, Ryan, Zach, Clay, Andy Baker, Olivia Baker, Mr. Porter, Toni, Bryce and Justin.

As is evident, despite being under oath, not all tell the truth, many of them are not even willing to admit it and others actually believe above the law itself with privileges that are not available to anyone.

The giant step that occurs in the second season of for thirteen reasons is that it greatly expands the points of view so that it is possible to contrast what they say in the trial and, thanks to the flashbacks that accompany their statements, the reality of what happened. Sometimes there is consonance and sometimes discrepancies. But it is that simultaneously we see how the process affects the day to day in the institute: the pressures, the reprisals, the fears, the insecurities, the truths that it brings to light and the shit that remains buried.

On the IMDB page, it gets a score of 8.1 / 10 in its ranking, plus you can read some reviews made by fans in the following link:
