“Personally, I would be interested to see…more discussion into what’s happening afterwards. It’s interesting in the first season we get to see what the characters go through post-Hannah’s death,” she told the outlet.
“I think Jessica has a really interesting story to tell—and recovery to make.”
Those who who have watched season 1 know that Jessica Davis, played by Alisha Boe, is a character who suffered at the hands of the same man who sexually assaulted Hannah.

It seems that, Katherine Langford’s hopes that 13 Reasons Why Season 2 will tackle the very delicate issue of rape that hasn’t exactly been brought to justice in the previous season.
For those who haven’t watched season 1, but have still decided to carry on reading this article, Season 1 showed how Clay Jensen’s managed to go through all 13 tapes without losing his mind as he discovers all the factors that that caused Hannah’s death.
The last straw that made Hannah to commit suicide is the fact that Liberty High’s counsellor, did not try to save her faith in humanity because he didn’t care enough even after learning about Hannah’s sexual assault.
“Look, something happened, Hannah. And I believe you” he said in 13 Reasons Why Season 1 Episode 13 before adding something that really disappointed the troubled student as well as the audience.
“But if you won’t confront him then the only other choice is to move on.”
Dylan also agreed that Jessica should get more screen time. He wanted the show to have a balance in the emotions expressed in Season 1.
“Same here,” he agreed.
“Maybe some smiles? I mean, I don’t know. No, there will be smiles. There will be smiles, there will be tears, I’m just excited to see what they’re writing up for us, you know what I mean?”
Of course, Katherine’s “hopes” might not be as far off as you might think from what will happen having in mind Brian Yorkey’s interview with Los Angeles Times.

“There’s a rapist who hasn’t been brought to justice, and there’s a living survivor of that rapist who is just beginning her journey of recovery,” he said about 13 Reasons Why Season 2.- Yorkey shares.
“Part of the problem with our culture is that we say, ‘Oh, the story’s done. Rapes are treated, at best, as a multi-episode arc within a season, when anyone who’s experienced rape knows it’s a lifelong story,” he continued.
“If we left these 13 episodes out in the world with [the rapist] not being brought to justice … it’d be incredibly dissatisfying to me.”
