Why It’s Overrated: When 13 Reasons Why premiered on Netflix in March 2017, it arrived as one of the most talked about new series of the year for many reasons. Some fans loved it, most parents hated it, some fans thought it should have ended after one season and so on. The response was a mixed bag, but that mixture of acclaim, attention and controversy landed the teen drama three more seasons. Whether you stuck it out to the bitter end, we can all objectively agree that where the series began pales in comparison to where it came to a conclusion.

This year’s fourth and final season of 13 Reasons Why found the Liberty High students finishing their senior year and preparing for the future. Clay (Dylan Minnette) grapples with mental health struggles in the wake of such challenging grief and tragedy over the years. Unfortunately, those challenges only continue as the truth about Bryce’s death comes to light and tensions flare at Liberty High. Of course, the series touches on heavy, topical themes that spark divisive debate.

To its credit, we can always say 13 Reasons Why swung for the fences and took major risks. Few shows in the teen drama genre would dare to touch the topics it tackled head-on. But sometimes those risks paid off better than others. In the fourth season, active shooters and one specific tragic death seemed to have been incorporated to speak on certain issues without having much to say. For a year like 2020, the farewell season of 13 Reasons Why missed the mark and wound up one of the most overrated Netflix shows.
