13 Reasons Why. Netflix announced the release date of the fourth and final season on 11th of May. Yes, you heard it right, it is going to be the final season in the series. The journey for 13 Reasons Why has been quite controversial with its uncensored content and late content warnings. However, the show managed to run for its full length and deliver binge-worthy content. The show’s plot and success might make you think if there will be a fifth season. Well, let us look into the possibility of that.
When Will The Fourth Season Release?
Netflix announced on 11th May that the fourth and the final season of 13 Reasons Why will be released on 5th June 2020. A video of the final table read was shared on twitter with the cast going all sentimental in it. Here have a look.

That pretty much clears up the decision of Netflix to end the show now. Looks like it is going to be the end.
Is there going to be another season?
The fourth season is going to be 10 episodes long and the final episode is titled Graduations. So that gives a pretty concise and satisfying ending without any loose ends. It further minimizes the chance of a fifth season. Therefore, we do not expect the creators to mess wit the ending by unnecessarily extending the show.
Moreover, the fifth season if happens would take a totally new theme as the show is actually about the high school pressure on teenagers that comes to an end once the students graduate.
The officials had already decided it to be the last season when they renewed it even before the release of the third season. Thus, I would say that there is not going to be a season five in the series. However, if it was to happen, we would surely inform you.
