Selena Gomez Previews What's Ahead For '13 Reasons Why' Season 2

Selena Gomez is gearing up for another season of 13 Reasons Why, and in all honestly, she’s kind of shocked.

“I think it’s going to be so exciting because you know, I didn’t expect the first to be as loud if you will,” she admits about the response of the show in a radio interview. “I didn’t expect it to have the reaction that it did.”

Selena adds that the reaction they got though “was amazing, and it was complicated, and there was a lot of stuff that came with it, and I understood what that meant.”

So, what does she think will come with season two?

“I think for season 2, we elaborate more on some of those questions and the stories and the resolution if you will of what some of these kids have gone through so—and are going through,” Selena says.

“I was in the writers’ room the other day and they’re working so hard and it’s going to come together. I was sitting there at the table, like, ‘Wait, what happened?!’ Almost like freaking out. I’m so excited. It’s going to be great.”

And just in case you want to be part of the show, check out the casting call details here.

Will Jeff Atkins Be In '13 Reasons Why' Season 2? Star Brandon Larracuente Hopes So!

Jeff Atkins was killed halfway through the first season of 13 Reasons Why from a drunk driving accident.

Although his story seemed pretty much wrapped up and there was nothing more to it, there’s always something more and star Brandon Larracuente would love to see more of his story on the show.

Brandon dished in a short Instant video that he “wants Jeff to receive the closure that he deserves.”

He added about season two in general, “We’ve left so many unanswered questions, and I think that’s what’s raising the talk and the conversation.”

TELL JJJ: Do you think Jeff will return for season 2? Do you want him to?

FYI: Brandon is pictured below at the premiere of Bloodline in Los Angeles on Wednesday night (May 24).

13 Reasons Why's Brandon Flynn Hates That His Character Let This One Thing Happen

13 Reasons Why's Brandon Flynn Hates That His Character Let This One Thing Happen

For just about every 13 Reasons Why actor, they relate to their characters in one way or another, and it’s the same for Brandon Flynn.

Brandon admits that he and Justin Foley have similarities, but they also have their differences too.

“I think that is my favorite part of being an actor, you get to see yourself in so many types of people,” Brandon told V magazine. “Justin is an actor too, he wears a mask at school that is very different from the one he has to wear at home.”

“That was a really powerful connection between us, I think a lot of people would connect to that.”

However, there’s one thing that Brandon just really doesn’t like about Justin, something that Brandon will never forgive his character for.

“Something that was really tricky to play in the scene, [is that] I would never let Jessica be raped. I began to understand Justin’s motives, but I will always hold that against him.”

13 Reasons Why, which has been renewed for a second season, is streaming on Netflix now.

The '13 Reasons Why' Cast Gushes Over Selena Gomez for 'V Magazine'

Alisha Boe, Tommy Dorfman, and Brandon Flynn hold nothing back in this new feature for V Magazine.

The 13 Reasons Why stars all gushed over working with producer Selena Gomez. Check it:

Alisha: I admire Selena for being transparent about her mental health issues and how she uses her platform to start a conversation and lift the stigma on mental health. She’s genuinely passionate about 13 Reasons Why and she believes in the message behind the show. It’s been a pleasure working with her.

Brandon: Selena Gomez is a beautiful person. She shares so much of herself and I think it helps a lot of people out there dealing with the same things. She is very busy, so my interactions with her during filming were limited, but her generosity and passion are very alive in the project, and that was really important to a lot of us!

Tommy: Selena was, and is, a huge inspiration for me. She challenges me to be more truthful both on set and off. Her courage encouraged me to be open publicly about my own issues with mental health and addiction, knowing that being open about that might help someone else.

'13 Reasons Why' Almost Had a Totally New Cast For Season 2

'13 Reasons Why' Almost Had a Totally New Cast For Season 2

We already know so many teasers about 13 Reasons Why season 2, from the continuation of Jessica’s heartbreaking storyline to the confirmation that Hannah will still be a central part of the show. But the second season almost went another direction entirely.

“When we originally pitched it,” showrunner Brian Yorkey told Entertainment Weekly in an interview, “there was another version, which was an anthology version where, in sort of True Detective mode, every year you start with a new 13 reasons.”

OMG! We can’t imagine what the show would be like without Katherine Langford, Dylan Minnette, Miles Heizer, and so many more actors who delivered astonishing and raw performances.

Still, Brian considered the other option as well, which was “continuing to follow these characters who really have been through tremendous trauma, all of them in some part coping with the trauma of Hannah’s death and the aftermath.”

This, of course, is the decision they ultimately made.

“It became very apparent to me, somewhere in the middle of the season, that I wasn’t going to be done with these characters after the first season, that I would want to know more and I would want to follow them,” Brian explained.

We definitely understand why.

What do you guys think? Should there have been an entirely new cast for season 2?

Uriah Shelton's Biggest Takeaway From '13 Reasons Why' Is A Life Lesson We All Need

Uriah Shelton's Biggest Takeaway From '13 Reasons Why' Is A Life Lesson We All Need

You might have not even noticed that Uriah Shelton was in 13 Reasons Why.

The actor stars as Pratters in the Netflix series, a background character who makes himself known when he decides that he doesn’t want to hear about suicide awareness anymore in the Peers Connection class.

“Pratters isn’t really malicious like everyone thinks he is,” Uriah tells JJJ exclusively.

“He’s just immature. He hasn’t learned to care about others appropriately yet, but I do like his character because, unlike some of the other characters on the show, he’s honest. And that’s a hard quality to come by in the world of 13 Reasons Why.”

Uriah actually didn’t even audition for Pratters, but was on the first ride out when the producers called him.

“I actually auditioned for two different characters, but I didn’t really fit them,” Uriah says. “I guess the producers liked me though, because I got a call one day asking if I would come up to San Rafael where they were filming to play Pratters.”

He adds, “I loved the project, so even though it was such a small role, I was eager to go.”

Although he’s mainly in the background, you should know about Pratters, because he may be in season two: “I honestly don’t know if Pratters will be returning for season 2, but I’d definitely like to see more of him. I may be a tiny bit biased though.”

We also talked with Uriah about the show’s impact on society and about all the criticism the show seems to be getting lately.

The biggest takeaway for him is to “realize what your actions and words do to other people.”

“Once you do realize the effect they have on others, don’t use them for the wrong reason. Don’t manipulate, abuse, or hurt anyone with them. And if you do accidentally hurt someone, make things right with them. It may be hard, but it’s the right thing to do.”

You can catch Uriah in episodes 1 and 4 on 13 Reasons Why, streaming on Netflix now.
