Kelli O'Hara Joins the Second Season of 13 REASONS WHY

The new episodes of 13 Reasons Why are now in production, but Netflix has yet to unveil an air date.

Seven new actors - all relatively unknown to United Kingdom audiences - will join the original cast, who are all returning, including Katherine Langford's now-deceased Hannah Baker, and Dylan Minnette's Clay Jensen.

Naturally, we can expect a few new characters to be added to the mix, and according to Variety, seven fresh faces have been confirmed to appear in the new season.

She was one of seven new cast members revealed in a Variety story updating the controversial show about a teen girl's decision to commit suicide that became one of 2017's most talked-about TV programs.

In the student category, Anne Winters will be playing Chloe, who's being touted as the high school "it girl" and the new head cheerleader.

Chelsea Alden will take on the role of Cyrus' artsy and witty sister Mackenzie, who isn't afraid to speak her mind.

Samantha Logan will play well-respected track star Nina, who also hides a secret. She, along with Cass, booked a role in NBC's upcoming Cruel Intentions revival. The cast additions are led by Tony-winning Broadway veteran Kelli O'Hara (Masters of Sex), who'll play Jackie, an "advocate for victims of bullying".

Lawson has been cast as Liberty High's baseball coach Rick, and Miller will play Sonya, a "smart, ambitious litigator". Fans may recognize her from her role in Syfy's Incorporated, executive produced by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.

13 Reasons Why season 2 will premiere in 2018.
