13 Reasons Why: Officially Renewed for Season Two!

by at .

Boy, do we have some great news for all the people who fell in love with Netflix's hit series, 13 Reasons Why.

Oh, and we also have great news for all the people who fell in love with bashing the hell out of the show.

Netflix just announced that 13 Reasons Why is officially getting a second season, set to air sometime next year.

The announcement didn't reveal any additional details, so all we're left with is a whole bunch of confusion. Because seriously, how are they going to pull a second season out of this story?

If you haven't seen the show yet, either because you're not interested in seeing graphic suicide and rape scenes or because you're just not interested period, there's actually a lot of possibilities for season two.

For instance, while Hannah Baker, the girl who killed herself and left behind the titular 13 Reasons Why, pretty much had her story all wrapped up, the other characters didn't.

At the end of the first season, one character tried to shoot himself in the head. We saw him being rushed to the hospital in an ambulance.

Last we heard, the character was in critical condition, so that's quite the loose end.

Another character was preparing for a school shooting, which would provide plenty of material for the story.

We could see Hannah get justice for all the things that happened to her, or we could see more of her parents' side of the story.

It's hard to say what will happen at this point, but before the news of the renewal broke, one of the show's writers dropped a big hint about what could happen next.

It sounds like even though Hannah killed herself before the first season even began, the character will almost definitely be a big part of the next season.

"One of the things that is a fundamental element of our show is the weaving of past and the present," the writer, Brian Yorkey, explained.

"Hannah's story is still very much not finished. She's an integral part of whatever the next chapter of the story is, and she's very much still at the center of it."

While many people are excited about the return of the Selena Gomez-produced series, many people are not.

"THE SHOW WAS CALLED 13 REASONS WHY SHE ALREADY TOLD US THE REASONS WHAT IS THE POINT OF SEASON 2," one particularly passionate person tweeted in response to the news.

Another joked "13 Reasons Why There Really Shouldn't Be Another Season of This -- written and directed by me coming to Netflix early 2018."

Others have argued that having a second season, especially featuring Hannah, lessens the impact of her death -- the character killed herself, there's no coming back.

Will you be tuning into season two?
