“13 Reasons Why” has only been on Netflix since March 31, but there are already talks of a second season.
Filmed around Sonoma County, Analy High School in Sebastopol was the show’s most prominent location. Scenes were also shot in Vallejo, downtown San Rafael and Mill Valley.
Based off the 2007 best-selling novel by Jay Asher, “13 Reasons Why” tells the story of Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford) through a series of pre-recorded tapes she made before her suicide. These tapes are shared with her close friend Clay Jensen (Dylan Minnette) as he tries to piece together why it happened.
Executive producer Selena Gomez and the show’s creator Brian Yorkey have already hinted at a second season and are hopeful they will get the opportunity to continue telling the story.
“We absolutely could (continue),” Yorkey told Entertainment Tonight at the show’s premiere on Thursday. “I think we’d very much like to have that opportunity. We’re not done with these characters. We love them and I want to know what happens next.”
Gomez was more reserved, as she wouldn’t confirm or deny a second season. “I would get in trouble for saying something, but I hope so. I hope people enjoy the first season.”
The premise of a second season is also unclear, but Yorkey hinted at a theme. “I would love to learn more about who these kids are, why they did what they did and also, Hannah made 13 tapes and told us 13 very specific stories, but there’s a lot she didn’t and I want to know more about that,” he said. “I want to know what her secrets are.”
Whether or not the second season would also be shot in Sonoma County is still uncertain.
