13 Reasons Why

13 Reasons Why is ready to wrap up. The cast of the hit Netflix series announced the premiere date for what will be the fourth and final season of the show, reported Entertainment Weekly.

Netflix released a video announcing the return of the series for the final time on May 11 - they also mentioned that the final season will be shorter with 10 episodes, and will hit Netflix on June 5 for streaming.

"In the series' final season, Liberty High School's Senior Class prepares for graduation. But before they say goodbye, they'll have to keep a dangerous secret buried and face heartbreaking choices that could impact their futures forever," reads the log line of the season.

Show-runner Brian Yorkey opened about what to expect from the season, saying, "Our North Star has always been that the inciting incident of the whole series is Hannah's death and the tapes she leaves behind, and so we want to follow that to its logical conclusion and I think and hope that's what we do in season 4."

He also shared why they decided on cutting down to 10 episodes. "It served the story better, and 10 episodes ended up being the sweet spot for us. I think 10 episodes is a nice length for a season," he said.

13 Reasons Why is based on the 2007 novel Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher, and premiered on Netflix in 2017.
