The second and final trailer for the third season of Netflix’s highly controversial teen drama series 13 Reasons Why dropped on Wednesday evening.

Though this season is taking a departure from the widely explored suicide of Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford), it seems there will be no lack of drama in the all-new murder mystery-inspired episodes.

This time around, the kids of Liberty High will focus on the death and possible murder of a school bully, Bryce Walker, who is portrayed by Justin Prentice.

“May I have your attention please,” says Bolan. “We received some extremely sad news from the Evergreen County Sheriff.”

“Bryce Walker was found and has been confirmed dead,” he reveals to the shocked and saddened students.
