Anne Winters, Bryce Cass, Chelsea Alden, Allison Miller, Samantha Logan, Kelli O’Hara, and Ben Lawson have all been added to the cast for the new season the show, according to Variety.
While none of the new cast members are series regulars, they are all said to feature prominently throughout the season and their collective past TV work includes series such as American Horror Story and Teen Wolf.
After a new interview with showrunner Brian Yorkey, it was revealed that there's still more Hannah to be seen even though the show pretty much tapped out their source material from the young adult novel in season one.
Yorkey said, "What I can tell you is that
He continued, "'Well, Hannah’s story is over.' Well, Hannah told her version of events, but there are at least 12 kids who have another version of those events that we actually haven’t really heard from yet. So I think there’s quite a bit more of Hannah’s story to tell."
So fans can rest assured that, while the next season(s) will shift the focus of the story to the other characters, Hannah's presence will still be felt.
Katherine Langford, who plays Hannah on the show, also spoke about her role in the upcoming season, saying, "We’re going to see Hannah in flashbacks. We’re going to see parts of Hannah’s life that we didn’t in Season 1. We haven’t really gone into that much detail but I know that we’re going to continue that dialogue and keep developing the story."
