"We really have characters who, after 13 episodes, are just beginning the process of recovery and the process of coming to terms with what part they might’ve played in Hannah’s death and how Hannah’s death will change their lives going forward," he told the outlet.
He added that gender dynamics would be a big part to what fans see in season 2 — something that was explored in season 1 through Hannah's lens.
"I’ve said a few times that this show is about the way we raise boys up into men and the way we treat girls and women in our culture — and what we could do better in both cases," Yorkey added. "And I realized we were just beginning the process of seeing these boys and girls grow up into men and women. It was something that we didn’t get to watch with Hannah and I would really love to watch it with these other characters I’ve come to love."
We'll have to wait and see what it means for Langford to step into Hannah's shoes — but it certainly sounds like Yorkey and the rest of the 13 Reasons Why team have a distinct vision for how they want to continue Hannah's story.
