After the first season of 13 Reasons Why aired, many were horrified at the problematic and graphic depiction of suicide that occurred in the final episode.
Since then a second equally problematic season aired that depicted a gruesome and graphic sexual assault scene. People assumed that surely the show couldn't continue on after that, but now it's been discovered that a third season will release on August 23, and a fourth and final season has already been renewed.
The third season appears to be a murder mystery of sorts with the core cast trying to discover who killed the series' villain, Bryce Walker. Fans and critics of the show had plenty of reactions to the news and aired it out on Twitter.
The third season of 13 Reasons Why will air on August 23 despite a negative reception for its prior seasons.
Netflix has been quick to pull shows that have a slow start but a solid fanbase, like Tuca and Bertie. However, for some reason it has decided to keep 13 Reasons Why despite the pushback and negative reception.
The third season is a shift from the first two seasons, which largely followed Hannah Baker's suicide and the aftermath. Now it's a murder mystery season with a website full of clues already up and running.
