We'll soon find out, as the popular high-school drama returns to Netflix for a second season May 18.

The trailer sees the title characters in freeze frame, surrounded by polaroids that may be from Hannah Baker herself, as suggested by the final polaroid that Clay Jensen reads which has the words, "The tapes were just the beginning" written on it.

13 Reasons Why comes from executive producers Tom McCarthy, Brian Yorkey, Selena Gomez, Joy Gorman and Kristel Laiblin.

Season 2 of the Netflix show picks up following the suicide of Hannah and Clay and his classmates unlocking a secret. That came after it teased the reveal in posts earlier Monday saying "The truth is developing" and a live-stream showing two Polaroid photos - leaving fans on tenterhooks for several hours.

In response to the criticism, Season 2 starts with a cast-led public-service announcement emphasizing the show's desire to start a conversation about mental health, and urging viewers to seek help if they need it.

While the first season revolved around the 13 cassette tapes Baker left in her wake to give clues as to why she chose to take her life, from the looks of the minute-and-a-half-long clip, polaroids will be the method of discovery in the new season. Liberty High prepares to go on trial, but someone will stop at nothing to keep the truth surrounding Hannah's death concealed.
