Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why has left us wanting more. The show, which addresses the issue of teenage suicide in 13 gripping episodes, is based on a book of the same name. While a second season seemed unlikely, considering the final episode mirrors author Jay Asher’s ending, there could be more still to come. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Asher keeps it open-ended.
“I’d just like a continuation of all those characters,” Jay Asher says. “I’m curious as well. What happens to Clay? How do people react to what Alex did at the very end? What’s going to happen to Mr. Porter? I’d thought of a sequel at some point. I’d brainstormed it, but decided I wasn’t going to write it.”
It’s clear that Asher is just as obsessed with his characters as we are, and that the cast loved working together too. Asher tells EW, “I’d love to see it,” yet he says confidently that he’ll never write another sequel. “You can explore that world further in a different medium,” he continues, “and the book will still be able to be itself. I don’t think the show is affecting what the book is saying.”
Good enough for us. We just hope they’ll get cracking on that next season sometime soon!
