13 Reasons Why Season 5: Will It Ever Happen? Why Netflix Dropped The Show?

13 Reasons Why Season 5

Netflix’s highly successful 13 Reasons Why has gained huge popularity and controversy for depicting dark scenes, and now fans are asking for 13 Reasons Why Season 5. Will it return? Well, throughout its journey, the show has gained mixed responses from fans. While some enjoyed binge-watching the show, the others took to social media to demand to ban such a scandalous show. But it never stopped the creators and cast from coming up with new storylines. But will it return for 13 Reasons Why Season 5? Let’s see!

Based on Jay Asher’s book Thirteen Reasons Why, the show takes place in the late 2010s in a fictional country named Evergreen, California. It follows the life of Hannah Baker, who recorded her entire life on cassette tapes. Liberty High school student Clay Jensen later received that. Through these tapes, he learned thirteen reasons why she killed herself. While the book was banned in many places yet the creator decided to play it out.

Will Netflix Renew 13 Reasons Why Season 5?

Unfortunately, Netflix hasn’t renewed 13 Reasons Why Season 5, and it won’t happen in the future as well. Before the fourth season could air, Netflix announced that 13 Reasons Why Season 4 would mark the end of this teen drama saga. The streamer later revealed in a statement that it was a creative decision to end this saga with the fourth run featuring the prominent cast’s graduation from High School. It hints at a natural conclusion.

13 Reasons Why Season 5

While the first season gained a massive following and response, there was a drop in ratings till the fourth season. Further, many people took on Twitter to demand the show’s cancelation. This is because the show’s dark nature has influenced people for suicide. As per the source after watching the first season, many kids aged 11-17 killed themselves. But despite this, Netflix decided to continue the show, and surprisingly it has run for four seasons so far.

Boss Reveals The Reason Behind Its Cancelation

In May 2020, the series showrunner Brian Yorkey revealed that he decided the future of the show while filming the second season. The graduation felt like a logical time to wrap up the show for him. Brian also stated that he might have more chances to create more seasons of this series. But he feels like the high school drama to end up with four seasons. So he believes giving these characters a satisfying ending and scattering them to explore new in their life is enough for him to depict.

Harsh Critique Tried To Stopped The Show

Despite the show being loved by many fans, it gained many criticisms after the second season. Hannah’s death scene in the first season finale was so dreadful that many people demanded to cut the scene from the show. They later edited the scene. But it never stopped the series showrunner from continuing with the show. Well, the debate didn’t stop here.

A sexual assault scene in the second season and a redemption plot of Hannah’s rapist, Bryce Walker, in the third season, created more scandal. Further, the show didn’t end here. It portrayed addiction, school shootings, ICE deportations, and multiple homicides. Things got nasty when one character sodomized another using a mop handle. Hence many fans demanded to edit those scenes. This is the main reason behind the drop in the show’s ratings. Yet the devoted fans loved the show and stuck to its fourth season. That leads to a drop in suicidal cases as well.
