The controversial Netflix show returns with a new season just as controversial as the first.
As Hannah Baker’s (Katherine Langford) suicide becomes a court case against the negligence of her high school, the people from the 13 tapes have to deal with the consequences of their actions and guilt.
This second season feels overly dramatic and unnecessary. The book that the first season was based on never had a sequel, so the story here is completely original. At times, it feels more like a CW teen drama than the realistic Netflix show that it was.
Almost all of the outcomes turn out bad for the characters you’re rooting for, which makes it feel like you shouldn’t bring problems to an authority figure if you have them.
Final say: This shuts down the conversation it wants to have. ★★★☆☆
