The first series comprised of 13 episodes and followed the life of a high school teenager Hannah Baker through a series of tapes she left behind for her schoolmates. Each tape provided new reasons for why the girl committed suicide. The next season will explore how the cast copes up with the tapes that Hannah left behind.
In season two, the cast is now haunted with controversial Polaroids instead of tapes. The trailer shows some students with photos, revealing a darker side of their personalities. Some characters were even warned to "keep their mouths shut."
The trailer also features a court trial between Hannah's parents and the school, especially the guidance counselor. The victim's mother is also stepping up on investigations as she is seen connecting the dots on a bulletin board. Towards the end, Clay Jensen played by Dylan Minnette picks up a card that reads, "The tapes were just the beginning."
