Netflix hit 13 Reasons Why announced earlier this week that it would be wrapping up after the release of season four.
The suicide drama which first hit screens in March 2017, caused a lot of debate due to the nature of the show’s content and graphic scenes which many found upsetting to watch. Therefore, before season two aired in 2018, the show revised its output so it came with a warning about the sensitive nature of the topics it explores plus, a message from the cast on where to go if you need to source help.
Now, veering towards its fourth and final season, 13 Reasons show runner, Brian Yorkey explained why it’s time to close this chapter.
“Somewhere in the midst of making season two, when it became clear that we might have the chance to make more seasons of this, I pretty quickly got to a place where it felt like a four-season story.
“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,” Brian told Entertainment Weekly.
Adding that there will be no spin-off show, just a solid finish that will hopefully leave viewers satisfied, Brian said that the college lives of these characters will have to be drawn from your “imagination”.

The 10-epiosde show will air on Netflix June 5th, with all episodes released at the same time.
