DON’T MISS: “13 Reasons Why” – Season 3 of the controversial drama series whisks viewers back to Liberty High School, where there’s never a shortage of secrets, lies and unbearable teen angst. Eight months after preventing Tyler from committing an unthinkable act at the Spring Fling, Clay, Tony, Jessica, Alex, Justin and Zach find ways to shoulder the burden of the cover-up together while helping Tyler move toward recovery. And although Katherine Langford’s Hannah Baker is no longer central to the show, another death – teased to in the show’s ominous trailer – will be at the center of things. (Friday, Netflix).

Other bets:

There a Chinese billionaire opens a factory in the husk of an abandoned General Motors plant and hires 2,000 Americans. But early days of hope give way to setbacks as high-tech China clashes with working-class America. (Netflix).
