The new 13 Reasons Why Season 3 trailer is here.
On Thursday morning (August 1), Netflix dropped the chilling teaser which centers around a new murder mystery and the death of Bryce Walker. The Riverdale-esq preview shows fans what's in store for the Liberty High students after another one of their classmates dies. In it, we see a police officer examining a crime scene, Jessica confronting her bullies and Clay standing at Bryce's funeral with the rest of the gang, who are all clearly suspects in his murder.
The trailer also revealed Season 3's release date, with all 13 episodes officially premiering on August 23, 2019. The Hollywood Reporter also confirmed the series has been renewed for a fourth and final season.
According to Netflix's official show description, Season 3 kicks off “eight months after preventing Tyler from committing an unthinkable act at Spring Fling, Clay, Tony, Jessica, Alex, Justin, and Zach find ways to shoulder the burden of the cover-up together while helping Tyler move toward recovery."
"But when the aftermath of a tumultuous Homecoming game culminates in the disappearance of a football player, and Clay finds himself under police scrutiny, it’s up to a shrewd outsider to steer the group through an investigation that threatens to lay bare everyone’s deepest secrets. The stakes are raised in this riveting third season of 13 Reasons Why, as the consequences of even the most well-intended actions can alter a life forever."

Earlier this month, Netflix announced their decision to edit the controversial suicide scene in Season 1 that sees the character Hannah Baker take her life in a bathtub.
"We’ve heard from many young people that 13 Reasons Why encouraged them to start conversations about difficult issues like depression and suicide and get help—often for the first time. As we prepare to launch season three later this summer, we’ve been mindful about the ongoing debate around the show," Netflix wrote at the time.
“So on the advice of medical experts, including Dr. Christine Moutier, chief medical officer at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, we’ve decided with creator Brian Yorkey and the producers to edit the scene in which Hannah takes her own life from season one," they continued.
