Although the popular Netflix show is set to return for a third season, it is time for the fans of 13 Reasons Why to say goodbye to Hannah Baker forever! The actress who portrays the character, Katherine Langford took to social media to announce her departure herself!
As you may be aware, despite the fact that Hannah committed suicide at the end of the first season, the second still featured the character both through flashbacks and as a ghost-like presence.
While in attendance at the Vanity Fair and Max Mara’s Women in Film event earlier this week, the talented star told E! News that: ‘Even though Hannah will not be in season three or probably any other seasons—if there are any, I do not want to start rumors!—but I just want them to know Hannah’s story is always something I am going to carry with me. And if people need to reach out, I am always going to be there in a sense, even if it is small like on social media.’
According to Langford, the fact that her role in 13 Reasons Why was her ‘first job’ created a huge bond between her, the character and the fans, which is why she decided to announce her exit herself.
‘Hannah…I love you…and I let you go,’ she wrote.
‘I have really realized the significance of that role and the story we were able to tell and how it resonated, not just on an entertainment level, but also how it resonated really intimately with people, and so I think it was nice for me to be able to share the finality of Hannah’s journey and more so my journey in the series,’ she explained.
