8 'Reasons Why' There Should Totally Be A Season 2

8 'Reasons Why' There Should Totally Be A Season 2

Hannah Baker might have finished telling her story but her story is not over.

Netflix has officially announced that there will be a second season of "13 Reasons Why" and everyone is having mixed emotions about the news.

Half the fans don't want another season and the other half do want another season. Recently an article came out about how there shouldn't be a sequel, and while it had some valid points, it also had some points I didn't agree with.

So I'm going to use the reasons she had that I didn't agree with on why season two is a good idea:

1. There isn't a second book

No there isn't a second book but that doesn't mean that there can't be a second season. I understand what people mean when they say there isn't a second book so there shouldn't be a second season, Jay Asher worked hard writing this book and Netflix shouldn't take that hard work away from him and make it into their own work. But the show brought us things that the book didn't, it brought us a story about every character involved and their stories aren't over. Season one also left a lot of unanswered questions and left room for Hannah's death to still impact a few more people.

2. Hannah Baker's story is over

Her story is not over! She might be dead but that doesn't mean her story is over. Yes, she recorded 13 tapes to tell the people that made her feel like she wasn't wanted why she ended her life. But her parents want justice for why she was led to end her life and season two will bring that. The impact she has on people because of her suicide is part of her story. With that being said the outcome of the lawsuit is part of her story, if that lawsuit changes the way the school acts towards bullying then it's because of her.

3. There is no reason to continue their story

I don't know why people seem to think that everything was about Hannah Baker. In the book yes every detail was towards Hannah Baker's life specifically why it ended but in the show it wasn't, they made a story for EVERY character. Which means that there are many of reasons to continue the story, there is a question about every character that is unanswered.

4. Hannah Baker won't be the main character anymore

Yes, Hannah Baker won't be the main character anymore but she wasn't the only main character and she's not going to be forgotten. We might not physically see her but she's still going to be part of the show.

5. Everyone is going to know the truth behind her suicide

They need too...

6. The format of the show will be different

The show didn't revolve around the tapes but the story that the tapes were telling and some of those stories still need to continue. The format of the show will still consist of those stories and the lawsuit for Hannah's suicide.

7. The name of the show won't make sense

A lot of names for tv shows don't make sense, for example, MTV's tv show "Faking It" was about two best friends faking being a lesbian couple, but they only faked being a lesbian for about five episodes and that show had three seasons. The name of a tv show shouldn't choose whether it gets another season or not.

8. There making a second season for the wrong reason

The first season started a conversation that needed to be had around the whole world and the second season will do the same. No one knows if the producers are making another season because of the ratings of the show or because they want to spark another conversation. But I highly doubt it's because they want more streams.

I personally can’t wait til the second season comes out, the first opened my eyes to things that I didn’t really put much effort into thinking about. I think the second season will bring more awareness to suicide and sexual assault. The first season was hard to watch because of the graphic scenes but that’s reality, that’s what happens and season two should bring us the same; the reality of what actually happens.

'Bohemian Rhapsody' Is The Must-See And Must-Hear Movie Of 2018

If you haven't yet seen the new Queen movie, when you do, you definitely won't regret it.


"Bohemian Rhapsody" was hands down one of the best movies we have seen in a long time.

Focused on the life of Freddie Mercury and his career as the lead singer of the well-known rock band Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody paid a great tribute to the late singer. Rami Malek plays Freddie with extreme talent, there wasn't one moment throughout the movie that I thought anyone else could've played the part.

If you don't know who Rami Malek is, this was not his first movie, he played in the Twilight Saga's "Breaking Dawn" (parts one and two) and also in multiple "Night at the Museum" movies. Also featured in the movie were Mike Meyers, and Allen Leech ("Downton Abbey's" Tom Branson).

It cannot be said that Rami didn't channel Freddie's personality.

The actor and the movie itself did a great job as portraying Freddie as the legend he truly was. It walked us through a brief mention of Freddie's humble upbringing as Farrokh Bulsara and the very beginnings of Queen, to the Live Aid concert at the Wembley Stadium in London six years before his passing. Watching the movie, you feel all of the emotion, the confusion, the love, the eccentric personality of Mercury, and the sense of family the band really had despite disagreements they had throughout their career.

Of course, I wasn't even born when Queen was performing, so in a way, I feel it might not have affected me emotionally quite as much as the way it affected many others in the theater. With laughter, tears, and even clapping, we were all engulfed in the life and career of Freddie Mercury.

Although some things may have been a little more dramatized or even underplayed, such as Freddie's sexuality, relationships, and the other band members' lives it was a great movie. In my opinion, even without those aspects, you could still relate and feel what Freddie was feeling, it did touch on a few relationships, however, this was not the focus of the movie and I don't feel it needed to be.

While the "Tomatometer" on Rotten Tomatoes only gave the movie a 60%, the "Audience Score," shows that 94% rated the movie with a score of 3.5 stars or higher. Some people who left reviews on IMDB felt the movie should have shown more of Freddie's life after Live Aid, and another review of only 3/10 stars claimed, "This move comes off like a LIFETIME film and not a serious Queen or Freddy Mercury Biopic for the big screen." Despite reviews such as this where people claimed to be disappointed, from the 55,071 user ratings, the movie earned an 8.4/10.
