’13 Reasons Why’ Renewed for Fourth and Final Season at Netflix

[The] decision to wrap the series arrives as Netflix has a penchant for ending shows sooner rather than later as the streamer weighs the cost of producing the series vs. its return on investment. Sources say Netflix is prone to redistributing financial resources to new series as those tend to bring in more subscribers than veteran shows. 13 Reasons Why is a pricey drama — especially after the cast’s rich new deals — and produced by an outside studio (Paramount TV), meaning Netflix has to pay a licensing fee to secure the rights to the show. – Lesley Goldberg, The Hollywood Reporter » http://thr.cm/jMYYC4
