Meet 11 new characters of '13 Reasons Why' Season 2
As the aftermath of Hannah’s death continues, Liberty High will welcome several new faces on season two of '13 Reasons Why'
Hannah Baker's story continues through the second season of '13 Reasons Why' and we have enough clues to look forward to more mysteries. Polaroid pictures are bound to replace audiotapes of the first season and Hannah's story isn't over.
While most of the cast members including Dylan Minnette, who plays Clay Jensen and even Katherine Langford, the dead Hannah Baker, will be back. But along with them, there are a few more new cast members, who will help take the plot forward.
With the second season slated to premiere on May 18, the time is right to introduce the new cast actors and the role they will be playing.
1. Anne Winters - Chloe
There's a new "it girl" in Liberty High and her name is Chloe. The new blonde will be friends with Jessica Davis (played by Alisha Boe) and will become the head cheerleader. We have seen a glimpse of the 23-year-old actress in the latest teaser trailer of season two. Yup, she is the one who is seen parting alongside Bryce Walker (played by Justin Prentice). Prior to this show, Winters is best known for starring in 'Tyrant' and 'Wicked City'.
2. Bryce Cass - Cyrus
The 20-year-old Bryce Cass, will play the “edgy, cynical mischief maker” Cyrus at Liberty High. '13 Reasons Why' will be the first major gig for Cass. He initially appeared alongside Winters on NBC’s adaptation of 'Cruel Intentions' in 2017 but the show was eventually scrapped by the network.
3. Chelsea Alden - Mackenzie
Along with Cyrus, comes Mackenzie, Cyrus's older sister played by Chelsea Alden. She plays an “artsy and witty girl who isn’t afraid to speak her mind.” We've spotted Alden in episodes of 'American Horror Story: Roanoke', 'Veep', 'Grey’s Anatomy', 'The Ranch', and 'Jane the Virgin'. The 30-year-old redhead most recently starred opposite Laura Dern in the film, 'The Tale', which premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.
4. Allison Miller - Sonya
