13 Reasons Why: Katherine Langford Says Hannah Won't Return for Season 3

That's right, don't adjust your -- whatever device you're reading this on

That's right, don't adjust your -- whatever device you're reading this on. Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford) won't be back for Season 3 of 13 Reasons Why.

Netflix's hit teen drama hasn't technically been renewed for Season 3 yet, but if and when it does get picked up, don't expect Hannah to keep haunting Clay (Dylan Minnette) in the show's third installment. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Langford confirmed that Season 2 was her last on the show.

"It definitely felt like time," Langford said. "For me, letting Hannah go was in Season 1; Season 2 was for Clay to let her go. It was being able to assist Clay on that journey as Hannah and let Clay have his moment to let Hannah go."

It did seem like Clay turned a corner in his journey to let his lost love go during the final episode of Season 2, when he gave a eulogy at her funeral. As he gave his farewell address, the "ghost" of Hannah that had existed in his mind all season smiled at him from the back of the church, got up, and walked out the door into blinding white light. That's as good of a goodbye as you can get for a character, living or dead.

How the 13 Reasons Why Finale Let Viewers Down

We'll be sad to see her go (though it does feel like a good story choice to move on from Hannah at this point), but Langford says Hannah will always be a crucial part of the show.

"Even though she may not be part of another season, I think that her presence and the importance of her and her story will always matter and will always be there," Langford said.

13 Reasons Why is available to stream on Netflix now.
