The predominant student fanbase of the series are struggling to let go of the class of 2020. Many young people across the globe have grown up with the characters over the last three years and viewers couldn't help but share their final thoughts on the show as they said their final goodbyes.

The purest human being of all this seasonJune 8, 2020
This series opened up my eyes as to what depression, anxiety, and revenge can bring. But I have learned so much about the meaning of friendship, true love, forgiveness, and giving importance to people who are willing to love you for what and who you are.#13reasonswhyseason4 pic.twitter.com/N0sUjJZHMQ— abbudabe (@rsll_dave) June 8, 2020
If you haven't watched the series finale yet, then stop reading right here!/\r\n//\r\n/At the beginning of Season Four, we saw that yet another student at Liberty High had died. As every episode goes back to show the students' senior year, we only find out in the emotional, heart-wrenching finale the name of the character who was the show's final casualty./\r\n//\r\n/The emotional rollercoaster final season also featured an intense student protest — which many fans applauded and found relevant in relation to current happenings in society./\r\n//\r\n/The show has always aimed to create awareness and start conversations and it's fair to say the makers have succeeded in that.

Look i know that “13 reasons why” is not for everyone, and if you have experienced things and have triggers don’t watch, but Season 4 Episode 8 is a small similarity to what is happening these pass weeks! The BLM movement!— al𝖋𝖗𝖊𝖉 (@alfredmontej01) June 9, 2020
