Netflix had recently dropped a teaser clip for season four (final season) showcasing the 13 Reasons Why cast emotional finish their final read-through. The video features Alisha Boe, who plays Jessica Davis, can be heard saying, “I will never forget this experience for the rest of my life, so thank you.”
Last month, showrunner Brian Yorkey told Entertainment Weekly that he had decided to end 13 Reasons Why whilst filming season two.
“When it became clear that we might have the chance to make more seasons of this, I pretty quickly go tot a place where it felt like a four-season story,” he said.
“I’m always a little bit suspicious of high school shows that go beyond four seasons because high school is four years long.”
“It felt like bringing these characters to their graduation and to scattering to their next things felt like the logical ending point,” he added.
“So for a long time, the idea has been, should we be so lucky to have the opportunity, we would do four seasons of this. So certainly going into breaking story for season four, we knew it was the end.”
“I’m incredibly proud of our finale episode. I think it’s very special and it’s also supersized,” Brian Yorkey told EW.
“It’s a supersized finale, so even if people aren’t super happy with the ending, at least they can’t say we were stingy,” he added.
