If Season 2 was about healing and about letting go,... then maybe the show should follow its own themes and move on.

June 14, 2018
A frank, bold, important look at modern teenage life. But, as with most series, it isn't for everyone.
June 11, 2018
13 Reasons Why lacks the nuance essential to navigating this terrain.
June 7, 2018
As with the first season, 13 Reasons Why is not an easy, breezy Saturday night binge but there's something addictive about it, that is until you remember teen angst has a limited shelf life.
June 6, 2018
The second season feels more like dealing with the aftermath of the first season's criticism, while lacking a true narrative of its own.
May 25, 2018
The second season is an even more problematic dumpster fire. Like the kind of dumpster fire that can spread rapidly to other buildings and really make a giant, fiery mess of things.
May 25, 2018
13 Reasons Why's first season had its issues, but its second season is nearly unwatchable.
May 25, 2018
Remains ridiculously gratuitous and irresponsible... It is bleak and depressing, scarringly graphic and stupidly glamorising in its treatment of guns and ideas of vengeance.
May 25, 2018
The second season of Netflix's controversial teen drama 13 Reasons Why has fans asking a lot of questions.
May 24, 2018
If this season premiere feels a little imbalanced, that's because it is. 13 Reasons Why is one of the many Netflix shows that would benefit from episodes being pared down to 45 minutes, or even half an hour.

While [13 Reasons Why] continues to try and generate conversation around important subject matters, it fails in its execution. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
May 23, 2018
The new episodes are watchable, but both the story and the message end up suffering as they jostle for airtime.
May 23, 2018
What's most important is the circumstances of how Chloe's crisis began and continues... [her] small part in the drama's imperfect plot may serve the new season's highest purpose.
May 23, 2018
13 Reasons Whyis not fundamentally interested in starting a conversation. It's interested in shocking, and it does not care how cheaply it might go about creating that shock.
May 22, 2018
At its best, the series is a (highly dramatized) depiction of what happens when someone dies suddenly and everyone involved spirals out of control.
May 22, 2018
It teeters over the exploitative line that it was always in danger of crossing, and then decides that it's not that big of a deal.
May 22, 2018
By the time things actually start to happen in this bloated sequel, it's almost too late to care.
May 21, 2018
Dark and somewhat melodramatic secrets are unfolding, as before. All of this is much as it ever was, but has the same problems. "Look at all these beautiful young people!" it says. "Don't you want to be like them? You do! And that's fine! But don't."
May 21, 2018
Right away it becomes clear the season's narrative foundation is built on sand, which is worsened by a lack of forward momentum and over-reliance on rehashing the past...
May 21, 2018
As the second season careens toward a conclusion that was already heavily hinted at in the first season finale, it becomes increasingly clear that 13 Reasons Why isn't about uncovering trauma, but perpetuating provocation.
