The cast members of "13 Reasons Why" became household names faster than we could all say, "Welcome to your tape."

The show, which was confirmed for Season 2 earlier today on Sunday, rapidly became a Netflix favorite when it aired in March.

And on Sunday night, at their award show debut, the cast took the stage at the MTV Movie & TV Awards to announce the winner for TV show of the year.

The highly anticipated category consisted of "Atlanta," "Game of Thrones," "Insecure," "Pretty Little Liars," "Stranger Things," and "This Is Us."

Katherine Langford, Dylan Minnette, Christian Navarro, Alisha Boe, Ross Butler, Miles Heizer, Brandon Flynn, Tommy Dorfman, Devin Druid, Justin Prentice, Brandon Larracuente, Michele Selene Ang, Steven Silver, and Ajiona Alexus presented the award to... [suspense builds]... "Stranger Things."

Of course, before announcing the winner, the "13 Reasons Why" cast looked at each other and smiled before saying, "We love this show!" because there's no stronger bond than a Netflix family bond.

"Stranger Things" Season 2 will hit Netflix on October 31, 2017, and hopefully, the air date of "13 Reasons Why" Season 2 will be announced soon.

Although we don't know specifics about what Season 2 of "13 Reasons Why" will look like yet, it seems like we can expect to see more of Hannah Baker.

Showrunner Brian Yorkey said in a Hollywood Reporter interview Hannah Baker is still at the center of “the next chapter of the story,” hinting she may be a part of the second season, despite her suicide.


He revealed,

One of the things that is a fundamental element of our show is the weaving of past and the present. 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.

Fan theories have definitely been running amok on the internet for both anticipated second seasons, but it's safe to say we'll have all our answers soon.

In the meantime, "13 Reasons Why" and "Stranger Things" Season 1 are both now streaming on Netflix.
