Netflix just dropped the 12 new stills, which were taken by photographer Beth Dubber, from the upcoming season that give fans an idea of what to expect.
The shots show the characters dealing with the ongoing sexual assault and bullying scandals that rocked the Liberty High community, which will be a main focus of the season.
"We look at the ways that sexual assault has been perpetrated over a number of years and has been in fact documented, and also the ways in which the institutions — the athletic department, the high school itself — are in some ways complicit in letting that happen," creator Brian Yorkey told The Hollywood Reporter.
Photos show some of the major players of the season, including Clay Jensen (Dylan Minnette), Jessica Davis (Alisha Boe), Bryce Walker (Justin Prentice) and Tony Padilla (Christian Navarro). Deceased character Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford) also appears in two shots, despite her character's death plotline being mostly resolved in season 1.
Scroll through to see all the photos from 13 Reasons Why season 2.
