Netflix ordered renewal of fourth and supposedly final season of controversial drama, 13 Reasons Why, in August 2019 soon after Season 3 had hit the platform. No official announcement has been made regarding the release date. But we can make a safe bet that fans will get to watch it by the year end and we have reasons why.
Educated guess lead us to believe that Dec 2020 will air Season 4
Since the show began, one season was released every year and there is an interesting pattern to it which was ignored by the media. Season 1 was released in March 2017. Season 2 came in May 2018 and season 3 was released in August 2019. Since the show hits every year so by the end of 2020, season 4 will see the light of the day.
If we go by the mathematical series, difference between March and May is 2 months and May and August is 3 months. So the next season can hit 4 month after August that lead us to believe that fans have to wait till December 2020.
There has been no official announcement on the release date and these are just the speculations. We hope that makers of the show are also following a mathematical series pattern to release the show.
Season 4 shoot concluded
Season 4 filming is wrapped by now. Many actors from the show, through their social media handles confirmed.
Ross Butler, who plays Zach Dempsey posted an emotional video after wrap up. He quoted, “I just wrapped on the final seasons of 13 reasons why. First thing I want to say is thank you for the last 4 years of support.”
