13 Reasons Why: All the Characters We've Lost Since Season 1

13 Reasons Why: All the Characters We’ve Lost Since Season 1

Liberty High School has experienced a lot of loss over the past three seasons of 13 Reasons Why. Though the drama series largely revolves around the death of Hannah Baker for its first two seasons, she definitely isn’t the only Liberty High student we’ve had to say goodbye to. Since the fourth and final season of the show is dropping on June 5, now seems like a good time to review the 13 Reasons Why characters we’ve lost along the way and what caused their deaths. We’re not sure whether season four will end up claiming any lives, but we do know that we won’t be seeing the return of these four characters.

Netflix: 'Clueless,' 'Casper,' and the Best Throwback Movies in June 2020

As the streaming wars continue to intensify, way more of the focus has shifted from classic movies to original content. However, sometimes all you want to do is unlock from the real world and escape into an old favorite. Thankfully, Netflix has subscribers covered there. Here are the biggest and best throwback movies hitting the streaming service in June 2020.

‘All Dogs Go to Heaven’

Kids growing up in the 1980s probably have fond memories of this 1989 musical fantasy. But the movie lost a bit of attention over the years. Perhaps that’s due to the lackluster sequel and TV series that followed.

In any case, this month is a great opportunity for fans to see how it holds up or even share it with their own children. Fair warning though: the story of a dog’s journey through the afterlife may open up some serious discussion.

‘Bad News Bears’

This 1976 sports comedy was a touchstone for a lot of kids at the time. But like All Dogs Go to Heaven, it’s lost its standing in pop culture a bit. Still, Walter Matthau’s performance is worth firing up the Netflix account for.

The beloved actors stars as a curmudgeon forced to coach a ragtag group of youth baseball players. Fans can probably skip the two sequels, TV show, and 2005 remake. But the original is coming to you on Netflix in June 2020.

For a lot of 1990s kids, Casper was a big deal. Christina Ricci was one of the decade’s most popular child stars, thanks to The Addams Family. And Devon Sawa — who only appears in one scene — became an instant heartthrob.

The movie is perhaps best viewed around Halloween. But its arrival on Netflix is a good excuse to check in with Ricci, Bill Pullman, and that friendliest of ghosts. The visual effects were also stunning at the time.


Even 25 years later, Clueless remains just as beloved. Few 1990s movies or teen comedies have had such lasting appeal. In fact, Hollywood is still trying to imitate Alicia Silverstone’s breakthrough performance as Cher Horowitz.

Most Netflix subscribers have probably already watched writer/director Amy Heckerling’s movie a million times. But for those who have yet to catch up with Clueless, this month is the perfect chance to finally do so.

‘E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial’

Steven Spielberg is known for tugging on audiences’ heartstrings with a ton of sentimentality. And this 1982 classic is a prime example of that. No wonder it was once among the highest-grossing movies of all time.

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial boasts stunning visuals, a poignant story of friendship, and an iconic John Williams score. Somehow, the movie has slipped off a lot of fans’ radars. But Netflix allows you to watch it again.

‘West Side Story’

This 1961 musical is a “modern” retelling of the story of Romeo and Juliet. But it offers more than a new spin on that William Shakespeare tale. Based on a stage musical, West Side Story earned 10 Oscars, including Best Picture.

Few movie musicals have topped its indelible songs and performances. Yet, Spielberg himself is remaking it. We’ll see how that turns out when it hits theaters in late 2020. Until then, here’s your chance to stream the original.

Netflix Party! Dillon Passage Parties With Too Hot to Handle's Bryce

Crazy crossover! Tiger King star Dillon Passage spent Memorial Day weekend partying with Too Hot to Handle‘s Bryce Hirschberg for his 30th birthday bash.

“Birthday boy. The man, the myth, the legend,” Passage, 24, captioned an Instagram Story of Hirschberg celebrating on his house boat in Marina del Rey, California. The two Netflix personalities were also joined by Hirschberg’s costars Harry Jowsey and Matthew Stephen Smith to mark the milestone birthday. The party was well-documented on social media, with both Hirschberg and Passage sharing a number of silly selfies with one another on their Instagram Stories.

The birthday fun continued on Sunday, May 25, when Passage reconnected with Jowsey to ring in the Australia native’s 23rd year. “My first trip to LA was epic,” Passage wrote alongside a candid snap of him and Jowsey leaning casually on the hood of a car. “Glad to have spent it with you for your 23rd! Next time you’re coming to Florida.”

Passage rose to fame after being featured on the gripping Netflix docuseries Tiger King alongside his husband, Joe Exotic (real name Joseph Maldonado-Passage), a notorious big cat enthusiast. Maldonado-Passage, 57, was convicted on 17 charges of animal abuse and two counts of murder for hire against his nemesis, Carole Baskin, and is currently serving a 22-year sentence in federal prison. Nearly two years after Maldonado-Passage’s arrest, Passage is looking forward to being able to visit his husband behind bars in Texas.

“You know, I miss Joe and it sucks not being able to touch him,” Passage told Us Weekly exclusively in April. “But still being able to talk to him, you know, that’s really what has kept us going strong. That’s really all we can look forward to at this point. Other than the fact that he may get pardoned, and he may not, but really the main goal is to get his sentence lessened if he can’t get out of jail immediately.”

Maldonado-Passage was previously in a three-way marriage with John Finlay and Travis Maldonado — and the zoo owner has spoken with Passage about opening up their marriage to other people while he’s serving time.

“I’ve been through a lot. I’m only 24 years old. Nobody ever would have expected that this would happen or that, you know, my life would be this way,” Passage told Us. “But he said, you know, ‘If you ever find somebody that is important to you and you think that you need to move on, I’d be OK with letting you do that.’”

‘The Lovebirds’ Is Netflix’s Number-One Movie, ‘Scoob!’ Leads VOD Charts

On the usual Memorial Day holiday, the summer box office is just reaching high gear. This weekend was supposed to launch “F9” into the stratosphere — until the pandemic forced Universal to push back the latest “Fast & Furious” franchise title to April 2, 2021.

As May comes to a close, “Scoob!” is continuing its premium VOD success for Warner Bros. (Generally, the top-ranked titles are similar to recent weeks.) This weekend’s newbie was Paramount’s once-planned April release “The Lovebirds,” starring Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani, which showed up at Netflix, while several other originals launched with varying reactions.

Here are some topline results:

“The Lovebirds” went straight to number one on Netflix.

The first 2020 theatrical studio title to be sold to a streamer (others followed, including Sony’s “Greyhound” to Apple), Michael Showalter’s crime comedy rose to the top film spot at Netflix as soon as it was released last Friday. We don’t yet know the volume of interest, but unlike the Russo brothers’ original action film “Extraction,” “The Lovebirds” hasn’t risen to #1 among all programs, where two episodic series rank higher.

“The Wrong Missy” starring David Spade, produced by Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions, fell from number one to number two among movies. The animated original “The Willoughbys” remains in the Netflix top 10 as the streamer claims that the film has been sampled in 37-million households worldwide (with multiple viewers) in its first month of availability.

Popular on IndieWire

“Scoob!” soared everywhere.

“Scoob!” is the first movie to rank at number one at all four of our VOD viewing charts since IndieWire started tracking them in mid-March. While the volume of revenues remains unknown, the title led all total transactions, even when priced three-times higher than most other offerings.

Universal’s “Trolls World Tour,” which had already generated a reported $95 million several weeks ago, continues its strong showing, ranking as high as number two at Amazon Prime and FandangoNOW; for some reason, iTunes continues to not show it.

Many military movies popped up on multiple charts, filling up one-third of iTunes’ Top 100 on Monday, with Oscar winner “The Hurt Locker” ranked at number four.

“Military Wives”

Other new movies are starting to pop up.

“Blood and Money” (Screen Media), starring Tom Berenger as a Maine hunter who stumbles into a crime scene, is number eight at Spectrum at the standard non-premium $6.99 price. Now in its third weekend, “Capone” (Vertical) stuck around at Spectrum and FandangoNOW while dropping elsewhere. The distributor announced during the week it had taken in $2.5 million in its first 10 days.

Among other new releases, Bleecker Street’s “Military Wives,” a British comedy from Peter Catteano (“The Full Monty”), which premiered at last year’s Toronto, is already at number 24 at iTunes — and unusually is simultaneously streaming at Hulu. Neon’s well-reviewed Sundance prize-winning documentary “The Painter and the Thief” is number 90 at iTunes. Paramount’s “Body Cam” with Mary J. Blige showed some initial weekday interest at Fandango.

Not yet registering on our VOD charts are new releases including IFC’s “The Trip to Greece,” Bruce Willis’ most recent VOD release “Survive the Night” (Lionsgate), and Greenwich’s documentary “Diane Kennedy: Doing Nothing.” (Some titles above may have separate outlets including company sites.)

Coming up this week is music-world drama “The High Note” (Focus Features), starring Dakota Johnson and Tracee Ellis Ross, the first of several higher profile non-family premium debuts over upcoming weeks. Focus is also giving Jon Stewart’s “Irresistible” a premium VOD release on June 26.

Drive-in theater totals increase again.

The number of open-air theaters has risen to over 300, with about half of these drive-ins. Outdoor theaters continue to provide nearly all of the current box-office revenue, with their audiences mostly satisfied with recent also at-home releases (not including “Scoob!”) or older library films.

Three-day weekend grosses came in at over $2 million (with double-feature grosses listed twice). That’s a pickup over last week.

The top four titles are from Universal, which has led the field since its day-and-date release of “Trolls World Tour” at number one. IFC’s horror thriller “The Wretched,” also on VOD, seems to be the next highest, adding around $200,000 through Monday and approaching $600,000 (again in most cases sharing that drive-in revenues with non-IFC titles). IFC Midnight releases multiple horror and other genre titles through the year to VOD and token indoor dates, but not drive-ins normally. In this case, they have smartly taken advantage of the situation and found an additional revenue source.

Saban Films also offered “We Summon the Darkness,” a rock-and-roll horror film released last month on VOD to theaters, with $30,000 reported in 10 drive-ins. Also, “Arkansas,” three weeks after the Liam Hemsworth original hit VOD from Lionsgate, added theaters, with a reported gross close to $80,000.

So far, “Capone” has not been provided to theaters.

‘Elite’ Season 4 Is Renewed At Netflix, So Get Ready For More Drama

It may be summer, but the students at Las Encinas — the fancy Spansih private school at the center of Netflix’s Elite — are already looking forward to the next school year. The teens have seen an escalating series of confrontations, and even murder, over the past three seasons, and the chaos won’t stop anytime soon. Elite Season 4 is renewed at Netflix, meaning a lot more drama is on the horizon.

The announcement of a Season 4 came on May 22 — just two months after Season 3 launched on Netflix — via a video posted on Twitter. The clip featured cast members breaking the great news from their individual homes while in quarantine due to the coronavirus. Georgina Amoros (Cayetana), Itzan Escamilla (Samuel), Omar Ayuso (Omar), Miguel Bernardeau (Guzmán), Arón Piper (Polo), and Claudia Salas (Rebeca) were featured in the video — which fans are taking as confirmation they’ll all be back to reprise their roles in Season 4.

News of the returning cast members may come as a shock, since it was rumored that Season 4 of Elite would feature an entirely new cast, much like the format of the UK show Skins. It seemed all the storylines were basically wrapped up at the end of Season 3. Plus, Fuera de Series, a Spanish news site, reportedly confirmed the rumors. Amorós also teased in that Season 4 "is a season where the cycle is completed. Another one starts," which led many to believe the Season 3 cast was gone for good.

It turns out, however, at least the six cast members in the announcement video will be back for Season 4, as they teased they’re already preparing for the season. “We have got the scripts of Season 4 and they look so good,” Bernardeau said in the video. “You better be prepared, because it’s intense,” Piper added.

That said, a post on Elite’s Instagram page seemed to confirm at least some cast members won’t be returning. The video shows Ester Expósito (Carla), Danna Paola (Lu), Álvaro Rico (Polo), Mina El Hammani (Nadia), and Jorge López (Valerio) getting sentimental about their final moments on set.

Spoiler alert: This post contains spoilers from the Elite Season 3 finale. At the end of Season 3, fans learned Sam, Guzmán, Rebeca, Ander, and Omar would be back at Las Encinas for another year, as they failed to graduate the first time around. Cayetana was also back at the school, but this time as a janitor rather than a student. Given that they’re still at the school, it’s possible fans will see them interact with a whole new class of incoming students in the new season.

‘Sex Education’ Sets a Tentative Summer Production Date for Season 3 Amid Pandemic

Netflix is preparing to get some programming back in production.

The streaming service is hoping to have Sex Education shooting again in August amid the pandemic and production shutdowns across the globe due to health concerns, Deadline reported on Friday (May 22).

Deadline has spoken to more than one person who works on the Eleven show, and they say that August is the current ambition for Season 3, but nothing is cast in stone as the situation with COVID-19 is developing quickly. August is seen as the latest Sex Education could go into production this year because the show is reliant on filming during the longer days of British summer, and the sunshine is an important part of its on-screen gloss. It means Netflix and Eleven will need to make a final decision on the shoot plans next month, given the show requires 10 weeks of prep time,” the outlet reports.

Sex Education was originally planned to begin production in May, but production was shut down as Wales remains in lockdown.

There’s also a question of the content: “By its very nature, Sex Education requires intimacy between members of its large ensemble cast, which will pose challenges in terms of observing the UK government’s two-meter social distancing rules, and may mean Laurie Nunn has to rewrite scripts,” Deadline reported.

This producer is also planning to reboot production in the United States with these two shows…

Rachel McAdams & Will Ferrell’s ‘Eurovision’ Music Video Is Weirdly Good

Although the actual Eurovision Song Contest has been canceled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, fans of the over-the top European musical competition can still look forward to some zany performances this summer thanks to Netflix’s new movie. Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga will star Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams as an Icelandic singing duo chosen to represent their country in a fictional version of the annual event, and Netflix released a music video to let fans know what to expect. As expected, Rachel McAdams and Will Ferrell’s Eurovision music video is pretty goofy, but surprisingly, it’s also an actual banger.

Netflix dropped the first look at Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday, May 16, releasing the music video for Ferrell and McAdams’ parody song "Volcano Man." The video features Ferrell doing his best Thor cosplay with long blonde hair and a viking helmet, while McAdams glitters in flowing white gowns. The two are playing musicians Lars Erickssong and Sigrit Ericksdottir, and belt out an ode to a volcanic protector while running around a sprawling Icelandic setting.

It’s pretty clear that Ferrell is using his real voice in the recording, but McAdams’ part is actually sung by Swedish pop star Molly Sandén, who participated in 2006’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest. With an actual pop star behind the chorus and producers Gustaf Holter and Christian Persson responsible for the beat, it’s no wonder why "Volcano Man" is so much catchier than an ordinary spoof song.

The best part is that there are more songs like "Volcano Man" coming very soon. The soundtrack for Eurovision Song Contest will contain more original songs written for the film, and be released alongside the movie on June 26. It’s not yet clear which of the other cast members will be singing in the movie, but since Demi Lovato is one of the film’s stars, fans can almost definitely expect a musical number or two from her character. The rest of the lead cast includes Pierce Brosnan, Dan Stevens, and Graham Norton.

Originally, Eurovision Song Contest was slated to be released in mid-May to coincide with the 2020 Eurovision, but after the event was canceled in response to the coronavirus pandemic in March, Netflix pushed the film back a month. So get ready to stream Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga on Netflix on June 26. Until then, I’m pretty sure "Volcano Man" is going to be stuck in my head 24/7.

If you think you’re showing symptoms of coronavirus, which include fever, shortness of breath, and cough, call your doctor before going to get tested. If you’re anxious about the virus’ spread in your community, visit the CDC for up-to-date information and resources, or seek out mental health support.

10 Feel-Good Reality Series That Will Take Up Hours Of Your Time

When reality series first hit popularity, they were defined by people like Simon Cowell, the meanest judge ever to sit at an American Idol table. But somewhere along the line, fans became tired of the mean jokes and looked for something calmer, more delightful, more uplifting. This decade has been defined by the gentle reality show, where contestants encourage each other, and judges are always find something to praise. It’s a perfect genre for these times, as feel-good reality series are what everyone is looking for.

Reality shows across the board have gotten nicer, even American Idol. But if there’s one place to find the best of the kind and gentle reality show, it’s Netflix. The relaxing, low drama reality series pairs perfectly with the binge-watch format. (No one wants to see someone be needlessly cruel for many hours in a row.) So it’s not surprising that in tough times, fans turn to Netflix’s reality slate to see contestants do their best, and judges who appreciate the effort.

With Netflix’s latest addition, The Big Flower Fight, premiering on May 18, 2020, this is a perfect time to sit back, relax, and watch some feel-good reality television. Here are ten of Netflix’s best offerings.

1. ‘The Great British Baking Show’

The Great British Baking Show is the feel-good reality show that started it all from the BBC in 2010. Netflix has all but the earliest two seasons, labeled in various ways. (The original Season 3 from 2012, for instance, is found under The Great British Baking Show: The Beginnings.) Add in the Masterclass specials and the newest seasons from Channel 4, and there are nearly 100 hours of baking in the tent to enjoy.

2. ‘Blown Away’

Blown Away is a reality competition that’s all about glasswork. Considering the delicate and challenging work that goes into this craft, merely watching these talented artists create pieces would be enough. But what makes it unique is how much the contestants care about the art itself, selflessly helping their fellow competitors to turn out the best product possible.

3. ‘Salt Fat Acid Heat’

One of the unspoken realities of high-end cooking (and cooking shows) is how male-dominated they are. Samin Nosrat turns all that on its head, with a four-part series that quietly pushes women to the forefront. Her Salt Fat Acid Heat series, named for her cookbook, is a soothing dive into generations of women and their contributions to food culture.

4. ‘Queer Eye’

One of the most heartwarming "up with people" series ever imagined, the Netflix reboot of Queer Eye is far better than the original. The Fab Five are all about meeting their clients where they live and finding the best person hiding inside. Their makeovers are as much therapy sessions as they are glow ups. With Season 5 arriving on June 5, now is the time to binge-watch and catch up. Bring tissues.

5. ‘Grand Designs’

Of all the makeover and home renovation shows, there’s nothing quite like Grand Designs. These are ambitious couples who throw their hearts, souls, and wallets into creating their visions of home. Unlike many HGTV shows, this series shows the blood, sweat, plaster, and drywall dust that goes into creating a dream home, with dreamy results. There are also spinoffs galore, including Grand Designs: Australia and Grand Designs: New Zealand.

6. ‘Ugly Delicious’

One of the best food travelogue shows of the 21st century, Ugly Delicious stars David Chang of the Momofuku restaurant brand exploring the cultural realities of food. What he finds isn’t always pretty, but it is deeply thought-provoking, and the dishes served up will make you want to move beyond those sourdough experiments to wilder stuff.

7. ‘Glow Up’

Much like Blown Away, Glow Up is a reality competition series about a very niche talent. But unlike turning sand into glass, it’s one every woman is familiar with: Makeup. Not only are the makeover stunning to watch and judge, but the tips viewers learn along the way will come in handy.

8. ‘Nadiya’s Time To Eat’

For those who love The Great British Baking Show, but have watched every season, Nadiya’s Time To Eat is here for you. A spinoff series, this stars it’s most popular (and arguably most famous) winner Nadiya Hussain. The food she dives into is a mix of the very British (Spotted Dick Bread, anyone?) to dishes recognized the world over. And her family (including her lovely husband) makes multiple appearances.

9. ‘Nailed It!’

Nailed It! is a series that’s the opposite of most Food Network shows. These amateurs are exactly as incompetent as you are in the kitchen. But no one minds very much, and the judges are as kind as anyone who doesn’t do this professionally would want. The results are often hilarious, but the episodes are never cruel. There are also plenty of spinoffs, including Nailed It! Germany, ¡Nailed it! México, and the French C’est du gâteau!

10. ‘The Big Flower Fight’

Netflix’s latest entry into this genre, The Big Flower Fight, arrives with three episodes on Monday, May 18. Like Blown Away and Glow Up, these are artists diving into their chosen field: Flowers! As teams work to keep out of the compost pile, giant floral statues abound, and dirt and mulch fly. Even when the ideas don’t succeed, they’re still a marvel.

Netflix signs up new DC Comics superhero series Sweet Tooth tracking fallout from ‘cataclysmic event’ – The Sun

NETFLIX has picked up a new DC Comics superhero series about a boy who is part deer.

Sweet Tooth tells the tale of Gus, who encounters a world devastated by a "cataclysmic event".

Brought to viewers by Arrow showrunner Beth Schwartz and Hap and Leonard creator Jim Mickle, the character is one created by Jeff Lemire for DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint.

Robert Downey Jr and his wife Susan Downey are among executive producers as the project hails from their film production company Team Downey.

The eight episode series is described as: "the broad appeal, family-friendly, storybook adventure of Gus – part deer, part boy – who leaves his home in the forest to find the outside world ravaged by a cataclysmic event."

The official synopsis continues: “He joins a ragtag family of humans and animal-children hybrids like himself in search of answers about this new world and the mystery behind his hybrid origins.”

The main character Gus is played by nine-year-old Christian Convery, while Nonso Anozie, Adeel Akhtar and Will Forte also make up the cast with James Brolin lending his voice as the narrator.

Sweet Tooth previously received a pilot order at Hulu in November 2018, with Mickle as its sole writer, but a series was not picked up.

Netflix has been working hard to keep people busy during lockdown with a variety of viewing options.

It recently unveiled the first trailer for The Baby-Sitters’ Club with a July release for the long-awaited reboot confirmed.

The 30-second teaser has delighted fans with an exciting first look at the new cast who play the original BSC members in the Netflix adaptation of Ann M. Martin's hit novel.
