‘13 Reasons Why’, a controversial mystery thriller drama has been streaming in Netflix since 2017 which got immense popularity as well as criticism across the globe. After 15 months off the air, 13 Reasons Why is back with season 3. The trailer starts with the mysterious death of ‘Bryce Walker’ and the investigation to find the culprit. The third and penultimate season of the controversial Netflix teen drama series, which started off as an adaptation of Jay Asher's 2007 novel of the same name — is now streaming on Netflix in India and across the globe. Set eight months after the end of the second season, 13 Reasons Why season 3 finds Clay Jensen (Dylan Minnette) and his friends helping Tyler Down (Devin Druid) to recover while struggling to cover up his attempted school shooting. Soon after, they are dealt another blow as Bryce Walker (Justin Prentice) is found murdered, which kicks off an investigation that engulfs Clay & Co. The third season then turns into a whodunit murder mystery. 

Why it had come under Controversy? 

13 Reasons Why has been a hugely controversial show for Netflix from the start, with critics, audiences, and medical professionals debating the series' effect and particularly the subject of suicide — on its target audience: teenagers. Said debate led Netflix to insert a warning card and video talking about its themes at the start of each episode after the release of season 1. And with the release of season 2, Netflix launched a support website, which provides crisis hotline numbers for those in need of help. (If you wish to talk to someone, please visit the website.) 

Amid mounting pressure from various organization and ongoing backlash, Netflix ultimately caved in the last month and edited Hannah Baker's (Katherine Langford) nearly three-minute-long suicide scene from season 1, two years and four months after it was released globally. Those who watch the season 1 finale now will only see Hannah looking into the bathroom mirror followed by her parents finding her body in the tub. By removing the scene entirely, Netflix essentially admitted that the content may have been harmful to younger audiences. People criticized and complaint Netflix that the show had glamorized suicide. 

But anyway, because of popularity and controversy, the show has returned for 3rd season. As per sources, earlier in August, Netflix renewed the series for a fourth and final season, which will likely premiere sometime in 2020. 

Here is the official synopsis of 13 Reasons Why season 3 aired on Netflix: 

“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 as the consequences of even the most well-intended can alter a life forever.”
