13 Reasons Why Season Three is directed by Brian Yorkey and stars Dylan Minnette, Katherine Langford, Alisha Boe, Christian Navarro, Justin Prentice, Brandon Flynn, Ross Butler, Miles Heizer, Devin Druid, and many others. 13 Reasons Why Season Three picks off right where Season Two left off, and we are introduced to familiar faces, but some new ones as well, one specifically being Ani Achola (played by Grace Saif) who is basically narrating this season. She talks about how she’s the new girl, and how she knows everything that’s happened in the high school and the problems that everyone has had, so she’s a big part of this third season. When the third season begins, the audience also finds out that Bryce Walker is actually missing, which I thought was a little bit strange since the trailer of the third season actually straight up declares that Bryce is dead, so I’m not sure why the show started off with telling the audience that Bryce was “missing” when he’s actually dead. Anyways, the third season mainly just revolves around the teenagers at this high school trying to put the past behind them and the ways they manage to do that. Jessica, for example, is trying to get her sex life back to normal after being raped by Bryce. Then, Tyler is trying to adjust back to life in high school after being raped in the school bathroom, and Chloe is slowly moving towards deciding whether to keep her baby or to have an abortion. The main thing that I didn’t like about the third season of 13 Reasons Why was actually the introduction of Ani, because I thought that she wasn’t necessary to the show at all. She didn’t even know Hannah Baker, and she didn’t know anyone so I’m not sure why she’s narrating the entire season. Along with this, I feel like this show started off as trying to bring awareness to key issues that children go through in high schools like bullying, sexual assault, issues with parents, pressure with grades, suicidal thoughts, etc, which is what I liked about this show since I think it’s important to talk about these issues, but the third season turned into a murder mystery in which we’re basically trying to figure out who killed Bryce Walker, and that’s what I didn’t like about the third season. I really think it should have just stuck to tackling these issues that need to be talked about. I would give the third season of 13 Reasons Why a 5/10.
