Netflix’s Release Date for 13 Reasons Why

Back in the summer of 2010, I was first introduced to the book Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher in a Lit for Young Adults class.  Since then. I’ve read the book a couple of times and even purchased it as an audible book.  When it was announced this past summer that Netflix had purchased the rights to create the adaptation of the book, I became excited.   After all, that is the hope of everyone’s favorite book: that some day, you’ll get to watch it come to life on-screen.

Selena Gomez, who is serving as a producer, posted a teaser of the 13 episode series on Instagram:

The teaser answered a much awaited question: When will the series premier?

Format of the series prediction

Netflix, thankfully, had decided to turn this Young Adult Novel into a 13 episode series.  I’m personally betting what will happen is that each episode will revolve around each of the reasons why Hannah Baker, the leading female protagonist, decided to kill herself.

The male protagonist, Clay Jensen, will serve as the ‘present day’ storyteller leading us through the aftermath of Hannah’s suicide while Hannah will serve as the storyteller in the flashback portions of the series.

For those of you who need a quick refresher, Hannah sends out her ‘suicide note’ in the form of seven cassette tapes to each of the people she connects to why she commits suicide.  When we enter the book, Clay is sending the tapes to the next person on the list and then we see a flashback to when he got home the prior day and found the cassette tapes and then spends the night listening to them.

The Cast

The cast consists mostly of young up-and-coming actors:

In regards of cast credentials of the younger actors, I personally think Minnette might be an actor that a younger audience will be the most familiar with due to the fact that in 2015, he stared in the Goosebumps movie.

I think it’s daring, in a great way, that the show cast Langford as Hannah since she only has one other IMDB credit.

 

We’re getting Gilmored Again

Possibly one of the greatest things is happening this November: Gilmore Girls: A Year in the LIfe.  It’s been, like, nine and a half years since the original series ended.  The reboot then is a treat best served after Friday night dinner at the Gilmore’s.

For those of you who are fans of the series, here’s a 2 minute featurette just for you:

Now that we’ve relived a few of our favorite moments, and got to hear what some of the actors of the show think, here’s what we know about the series on Netflix.

There will four 90 minute episodes.  Each episode will take place during one of the seasons and in this order: Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.

Thankfully, if there is an Easter Egg hunt this year planned by Kirk, we know he has learned his lesson:

You asked. He answered. Kind of. Dear Kirk Volume #1 is now available at townofstarshollow.org/updates.

We know from IMDB’s page for the show, that pretty much all of our favorite characters are back, including all three of Rory’s love interests.  Yet, the following Instagram has people wondering if Lorelai is pregnant or if Rory is pregnant.

Personally, I’m hoping that we’ll have some more Babette and Miss Patty scenes like this: After all, these two ladies do have a way of entertaining us.

Granted, we’ll only have four episodes of Friday night dinners:

After all, we all know Friday night’s alright for fighting.  Granted, with Edward Hermann’s death being written into the show for his character Richard, I’m sure that’ll be brought up during a Friday night dinner.

Granted, I’m sure like the original series, there’ll be some PG-13 moments:

And with Amy Sherman-Palladion – the wonderful woman responsible for the series – writing these four episodes will, they will be some of the most amazing things out there.
