13 Reasons Why: Season 2 TV review - Aussieboyreviews


In this decent second season following the book-adapted series about teenagers and suicide, expect courtroom action and heavy topics. It’s nowhere near as engaging as the first season, but it works finely.


Five months after the tragic death of Hannah Baker as the lawsuit against Liberty goes to trial, the students start uncovering startling secrets and receive threats when they go to testify.

Aussie boy's thoughts

Despite outstanding performances, uncomfortable subject matter and teenage material, 13 Reasons Why’s second season should’ve just left the first one alone. It picks up on the cliffhangers and depicts the Liberty court case, and while it’s usually entertaining, there’s also other sequences when it can actually be quite boring and uninteresting. The cast does an even better job and the season provides more mysteries surrounding the death of Hannah Baker. It doesn’t need to continue with more seasons.
