Netflix has renewed popular teen drama series 13 Reasons Why for a 13-episode third season to premiere in 2019. The Internet network confirmed the pickup in a teaser released on social medial this morning.

The renewal comes less than a month after the May 18 debut of Season 2. 13 Reasons Why is one of Netflix’s most popular shows, with the current second season topping various rankings of the most streamed series for the weeks since its release. The second season drew an average minute audience of 2.6 million in the U.S. during the first three days after its debut, according to Nielsen, with the premiere episode pulling in 6 million viewers in three days.

As for Season 3, Yorkey shared some clues about his plans at a Netflix FYC panel Friday.

“What happened to Hannah will always be the first clause of the story,” he said. “The rest of the story is about young people, as so many young people, maybe all young people today (learn) how to heal from the things that have hurt them…to make the world that they want it to be, not just the world they are inheriting…and above all, how to take care of each other.”
