What Happens To Clay In '13 Reasons Why' Season 2? Dylan Minnette Reveals Major Details


13 Reasons Why won't return to Netflix until sometime in 2018, but info about what to expect from the show's second installment is slowly rolling in. Though the series second season, which wrapped filming in December of last year, has been shrouded in a great deal of secrecy, star Dylan Minnette was able to reveal a few details about its future. In a recent interview with Seventeen Magazine, he spilled about what happens to Clay in 13 Reasons Why Season 2 and how Hannah will be involved moving forward. And, yes — we can anticipate enlightening flashbacks, but those won't necessarily include a lot of Clay and Hannah together.

From everything we've seen thus far, it sounds like the second season is going to flesh out the characters and show new sides to their identities we haven't previously been privy too. I think it's safe to say that fans of the series are ready to get to know these teens (and their families) on even deeper levels as time goes on. And when it comes to Hannah's complex narrative, there's more than meets the eye. "It would have been weird to end Hannah’s story in season one because we only heard very small tidbits of her life told by her," Dylan explained. "There’s a whole life that Hannah had, and there’s more we can learn about her. Overall, learning more about her is more important to the entire narrative."

Another development in Clay's personal life? Skye Miller doesn't appear to be going anywhere. Minnette hinted that his relationship with his old BFF/Monet's waitress might just evolve into something romantic:

It will be interesting how the show navigates the aftermath of Season 1, while continuing to fill us in on Hannah's history. Katherine Langford, who plays Hannah, also shared some details about how the upcoming season will depart from the first. She told Entertainment Weekly back in December,

Season 2 will also introduce audiences to at least seven new cast members, according to Variety. Characters include Cyrus, "an edgy, cynical mischief maker," his artsy sister Mackenzie, a Liberty High track star named Nina, and Sonya, a "smart and ambitious young litigator."

In addition to these unfamiliar faces, the show will shine a light on Jessica (Alisha Boe) in the wake of what she experienced last season. Showrunner Brian Yorkey told EW,

The cassettes might be over for now, but it's clear that new chapters to Hannah, Clay, Jessica, and other characters stories will unfold when 13 Reasons Why returns.
