'13 Reasons Why' Showrunner Reveals Why Season 4 Was The Perfect Time to End The Series

The fourth season premiere date for 13 Reasons Why was just announced this week, and now the showrunner, Brian Yorkey, is opening up about the final season.

“Somewhere in the midst of making season 2, when it became clear that we might have the chance to make more seasons of this, I pretty quickly got to a place where it felt like a four-season story,” he explained in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

Brian continued that he’s “always a little bit suspicious of high school shows that go beyond four seasons because high school is four years long. So when somehow high school shows become seven and eight seasons long, don’t get me wrong I watch them all, but I tend to get a little suspicious of something that began as a high school show.”

“Bringing these characters to their graduation and to scattering to their next things felt like the logical ending point,” he adds. “For a long time, the idea has been, should we be so lucky to have the opportunity, we would do four seasons of this. So certainly going into breaking story for season 4, we knew it was the end.”

Netflix also just released a handful of ten new images from the final season, which premieres in June.
