Just a little more than a week ahead of its premiere, Netflix has released the final trailer for 13 Reasons Why, providing new evidence into the mystery surrounding the death of Liberty High School student and star football player, Bryce Walker. The more than two-minute-long trailer, the second to be released, dropped Wednesday morning. The series’ penultimate season is set to debut on Friday, Aug. 23.
“May I have your attention, please?” a voice says over the loud speaker as students sit in class. “We have received some extremely sad news from the Evergreen County Sheriff. Bryce Walker was found and has been confirmed dead.”
As the police lead an investigation into Walker’s death, Clay seems to arise as a prime suspect.

As teased in the trailer, the third season will largely focus on the newest mystery shrouding the teens at Liberty High following the murder of Bryce Walker.
“When the aftermath of a tumultuous homecoming game culminates in the disappearance of a football player and Clay finds himself under police scrutiny, it's up to a shrewd outsider to steer the group through an investigation that threatens to lay bare everyone's deepest secrets,” the official synopsis for the season reads. “The stakes are raised as the consequences of even the most well-intended actions can alter a life forever.”
Picking up eight months after the events of the Season 2 finale, the new season is also set to explore the aftermath of the thwarted school shooting that Tyler nearly carried out.
