It’s 13 Reasons Why… week? Month? Heck, we wouldn’t be surprised if the hype lasted all year. The show is seriously addicting — that’s why we’ve been so gung-ho about the fan theories, merchandise, even the real-life relationships among certain cast members (or lack thereof). Since we’re sure you binge-watched the series in its entirety in a matter of days (or hours), we know what you’re thinking: Will there be a Season 2?
There’s a lot of debate over it happening all over the Internet. Some are all for it, wanting to know what happens next. Will Alex survive? Why does Tyler have all those weapons? Where will Justin go? Others believe that the first season should be the only season. Why mess with a good thing? Hannah’s story is wrapped, and Clay’s tale ends on a decent-enough note. Whether or not you want it, these ten cast and crew members are down for another round of 13 Reasons Why:
As of right now, no one can say, with certainty, if a second season is in the cards — not even Executive Producer Selena.
"I would get in trouble for saying something," she began in an interview with ET, "but I hope so." !!!
"We don't know what is going to go beyond it," she said in a separate interview with The Hollywood Reporter, "but we know there are so many stories that lie beneath each character. That's why it became a series in the first place. So we'll see."
"I think that everyone would love to do another one, if we're given the opportunity," Dylan (a.k.a. Clay Jensen) told ET, "because I think when people see where it leaves off, people are going to want to know more about these characters and what's next for them. There is a possibility."
You can bet that the young woman who plays the driving force behind 13 Reasons Why is all for Season 2.
"There's definitely more story to tell," she told The Hollywood Reporter. "It would be cool to continue the dialogue of this story. There are so many cliffhangers at the end of the season. At the end of the season, I had to sit back. I didn't think about what happens next. It's more of this feeling like, 'Oh my God, that's the story that needed to be told.'"

Should there be a Season 2 or should there not? The guy who portrays Tyler Down thinks there should.
"We were definitely able to expand on these characters that you don't see as much in the book, and we have some really interesting beginnings of a storyline that we could expand on," he told CNN. "There's still the court trial and some plotlines brewing at the end of the series that I know a lot of people on Twitter have been asking about, including my sibling."
In an interview with LaPalme magazine, Tommy, who plays Ryan Shaver on the show, was asked about his next project. His answer: "Hopefully a second season of 13! I do have other projects in the works, but nothing I can speak about publicly."
Even the guy who clocked in at #12 on Hannah's list of reasons (a.k.a. Bryce Walker) is down for 13 Reasons Why, Part 2.
"I think viewers will see kind of an expansion [on the book] even within this first season," he told Bustle. "Because we have 13 episodes, we were able to really go deep into some of the characters that even the book didn't go in-depth on."
"I would love to stay employed," he added, "so hopefully there's more story to tell."
The woman who plays Hannah's mom kept things succinct and positive with her response. "I think so, absolutely," she told Bustle about the potential for a second season.
Even the author of Th1rteen R3asons Why, the standalone book, is into the prospect of an expansion on the Netflix program.
"I'm curious as well,” Jay explained to Entertainment Weekly. "What happens to Clay? How do people react to what Alex did at the very end? What's going to happen to Mr. Porter? I'd thought of a sequel at some point. I'd brainstormed it, but decided I wasn't going to write it. So I'd love to see it."
"Every action we have is going to have repercussions in ways we could not anticipate," he added. "You realize that with not just what Hannah did, but also how other people treated Tyler throughout it. It's the whole message of the book. Of course, there's obviously ways to go with a second season if they do that."

The creator, Brian, is hopeful as well.
"We absolutely could [continue]," he said at the premiere. "I think we'd very much like to have that opportunity. We're not done with these characters. We love them and I want to know what happens next."
"We absolutely talked about what could happen next," he added.
"I would love to learn more about who these kids are, why they did what they did and also, Hannah made 13 tapes and told us 13 very specific stories, but there's a lot she didn't and I want to know more about that," he concluded. "I want to know what her secrets are."
Selena's mom, Mandy, who co-produced the series, is not entirely on board with additional episodes. "It's an internal battle with myself and Selena as well, because it's always been a miniseries and I always wanted to honor Jay's work and really make him proud," she said in an interview with Bustle."
"To go that step, how do we top it?," she questioned. "We've put so much work and heart and research and everybody gave their all. Do we end on that note or do we expand on another issue? And how do we just honor the original material?"
BUT, she seems to be keeping an open mind. "I'm on the fence, so it's just gonna have to be how it comes back," she added. "I mean, I would totally support anything that can help people."
