    I am not sure if I like that or not. I thought the first season was great, but this was Hannah's story. The idea of telling why she committed suicide through tapes was unique. If they try and tell another story with the same trope, I don't know if it will work.

    I have to think the only story that makes sense for season 2 would be telling a similar story (tragedy) from a new person with their own perspective.
    Clearly there is one person in mind.

    I could easily see season two about Tyler and him going "Columbine" at the school

    There are lots of stories about high school kids and feeling isolated. They don't always have to result in suicide. They could result in murder, mass murder, reputation shaming, destruction of teacher reputations, ...
    Now it might be better if like Fargo and other shows they get a whole new school and cast.

    From an interview with the creator:

    “Hannah’s story isn’t over — she has parents who still don’t have the complete story,” he says. “There’s a rapist who hasn't been brought to justice and there’s a living survivor of that rapist who is just beginning her journey of recovery.

    “Part of the problem with our culture is that we say, ‘Oh, the story’s done,’” he adds. “Rapes are treated, at best, as a multi-episode arc within a season, when anyone who’s experienced rape knows it’s a lifelong story. If we left these 13 episodes out in the world with [the rapist] not being brought to justice … It’d be incredibly dissatisfying to me.”

    The stars and creator of '13 Reasons Why' talk about the show's success and the backlash

    Like many shows, the first season was great, and thus popular. That makes people see $$$ and pump out a season 2. I too worry it's not nearly as good as the first.

    But I'll watch. :)

    Or the kid could go on to live a normal life. Where's that story?

    Normally I agree. But in this case I felt that the show was much better than the book, and that gives me hope.

    I finished this last night, after starting it late Saturday evening. I think the story could have been tightened up a bit, but overall I think it was very well done, and I'm looking forward to Season 2. I think there's a lot of story left to tell.

    13 Reasons Why was filmed in my area, which distracted me a few times while I watched, because I had to rewind to try to figure out where a particular scene was shot.

    That's an interesting article. I've read several criticisms of the show that said the suicide scene was too peaceful and painless - which is very different than what this writer is saying. I'm not sure that the screen was painless, but it certainly wasn't like what this writer describes in this article.

    The hell? Peaceful and painless is the last way I'd describe that scene.

    Peaceful and painless?! Not what I thought when I watched it. There was nothing peaceful or painless about that.

    Where is that? <-- yes, I know I'm being lazy. I'm more curious to know how it relates to you/your life than just the town/city name.

    The locations were around the San Francisco bay area. The houses of the characters were mostly in San Rafael. The high school was in Sebastopol. The cafe, theater, drug store, and external shots in town were mostly in Vallejo. The rock climbing scene was shot in Mt. Diablo State Park. The first scene I noticed first, when Clay is on a bench overlooking the town and bridges, was outside Crockett.

    I spent many evenings in my youth on that hill, and hills nearby. If future archaeologists ever excavate at the base of those hills, they'll find a layer of Mickey's malt liquor bottles marking the dates between 1977 and 1981. We didn't stop drinking in 1981, but we did learn not to litter our surroundings and started hauling our bottles back to town for disposal.

    I looked up Analy High School, the school in Sebastopol where they filmed 13 Reasons, and found this very sad article about a student that was scheduled to start classes there in September, but took her own life last week. Real life sucks.

    I started watching today, and I noticed that the scenery looked familiar. Turns out some of it was filmed in downtown San Rafael, CA, and later the main guy was on his bicycle and went past some quonset huts not 100 yards down the street from where my office was that I worked at for over 20 years. Such a sad story, and that creeped me out just a little bit.
