The decision to end the show was purely a creative one. The show ended with the cast’s graduation from high school. It was a very natural conclusion to the show.
The Plot Of The Show
The show revolves around a group of high school students of Liberty High. The school reels with the aftermath of the suicide of one of the students, Hannah Baker. Hannah left behind a box of tapes in which she talks about why she chooses to end her life. Each person responsible for her suicide was detailed on one side of the tape.
The show dealt with a variety of issues that the youth of today faces. This includes suicide, sexual assault, racism, bullying, drug addiction, mental health, jock culture, abortion, school shooting, steroid use, homelessness, domestic violence, homophobia among others.
The show’s developer, Brian Yorkey feels that the show ended at the right time and it felt like a logical ending point with the graduation of the students. He was sure about the ending since the second season itself.
