Dylan Minnette Talks Clay's Mental Health in '13 Reasons Why' Season 2

13 Reasons Why season two is only a few more days away and Dylan Minnette is preparing you to watch Clay’s struggle with his mental health.

In a new interview with Buzzfeed, the 21-year-old actor opened up about Clay continues to struggle with the aftermath of Hannah’s suicide and how it impacts his mental health.

“It definitely is something that should be addressed because I think it’s pretty clear that he definitely has some issues and he is struggling,” Dylan says. “It really takes a toll on him and almost takes him completely to the edge in this season.”

Clay is trying to move on, but it doesn’t seem like that’s going to happen: “He’s trying his best to just live his life, but it becomes apparent pretty quickly that that’s just not possible.”

“I think people can tell that Clay had some hint of a mental illness and he is depressed and he has some issues,” he adds. “But I hope that people can see it’s a much larger issue in Season 2, and that there’s much deeper problems within Clay that we didn’t get to see in Season 1.”

Fans have already seen in the trailer that Clay has arguments with Hannah, and he’ll space out and talk to himself; and it’s something that will take a toll on him and his friends.

“After Season 1, I remember thinking to myself, ‘What emotional journey can Clay go on that even compares to the level of what he went through in Season 1?’ And as it turns out, it’s still a pretty emotional journey for Clay,” Dylan says. “It’s a very emotionally and physically demanding season for Clay this year.”

13 Reasons Why season two premieres on Friday, May 18th on Netflix.

Selena Gomez Isn't Trying to 'Glorify Anything' With '13 Reasons Why'

Selena Gomez Isn't Trying to 'Glorify Anything' With '13 Reasons Why'

13 Reasons Why will be back in just a week on Netflix, and executive producer Selena Gomez is opening up about the show’s legacy.

In her interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1, the 25-year-old entertainer dished about her new song that’s included on the soundtrack and all about season two.

“I just think that what I learned more than anything is just how making an impact can look differently,” Selena shared about the show going forward. “I think what we’re doing and what we’ve always wanted to talk about was genuinely just to care about people and to get it out in that certain way.”

She adds, “…nobody is trying to desensitize it. I think I just learned to be bold, to stand by what you believe in.”

Selena also opened up about some of the criticism of the show: “I’ve always viewed things as comfort is the enemy of progress. So I think when something makes that sort of noise, it’s either two reasons. It’s either so foul or it’s amazing. And I think that’s when you get people to wake up. I don’t do it to glorify anything.”

“This is what happens and I’m sorry if you can’t — this is real life and I’ve had numerous parents and kids come up to me. How it’s just opened the door for healthy communication and that’s all you want. You know, we’re not going to end these certain things or try to break through it unless we take those risks.”

“With this song, it’s a very special record. I want it to be a beautiful message in a really complicated way, but really fun. But I think that ‘Back To You’ is more of my special project that I wanted to give to Season 2,” Selena told Zane Lowe during a Beats 1 radio interview.

“I am finishing up the album but we’re also trying to figure out a fun way to take our time. There’s no date there’s no idea for it but I have a lot of music that I’ve collectively put away.”

'13 Reasons Why' Showrunner Previews More Mysteries in Season 2 Coming

'13 Reasons Why' Showrunner Previews More Mysteries in Season 2 Coming

13 Reasons Why just unveiled the brand new trailer for season two and it has us asking so many more questions – which was exactly the point.

Showrunner Brian Yorkey spoke with EW recently about the upcoming season, which premieres next Friday, May 18th, and how the mysteries will open up more conversations and storylines.

“What I love about season 2 is that there are these different pieces to this mystery,” he shares. “The threads of this mystery, like who’s doing this and why and how does it relate to Hannah Baker and how does it relate to what Jessica went through, it all comes together in the later episodes in a way that I think is really satisfying.”

He adds that it “also speaks to some of the underlying themes that we’re talking about like sexual abuse and the endemic nature of sexual abuse and the way institutions sometimes wittingly or unwittingly allow it to continue.”

“I know that people are going to have vastly different feelings about it because that tends to be what happens with our show and that’s also good,” Brian continues about the difference between seasons. “The worst thing we could do in making a season 2 is set about trying to replicate, in any way, the success of season 1.”

The idea this season was to “continue to tell the stories of these characters, have them encounter issues and themes that are relevant to young people today and to do it as truthfully as we could. That was our guiding force.”
