If you were curious to know what could possibly happen next in season three of 13 Reasons Why, well prepare for a real mystery.

The new season of the Netflix series, which drops today, August 23, will focus on the mystery of who killed football player and abuser Bryce Walker.

The last two seasons have set it up so that anyone may be responsible for Bryce’s death, introducing new characters and diving deeper into the stories of some of our favorites.

One character we will be watching throughout the season—and one of the characters we’ve grown to love—is Jessica, played by Alisha Boe.

It’s revealed in season one that Jessica, along with Hannah (Katherine Langford), was sexually assaulted by Bryce and throughout season two, Jessica faces ominous threats as she prepares to testify against Bryce in court.

Boe brings tons of emotion to her character and has been one of our favorite actors to watch in the series. If you’re not yet familiar with the Norwegian-Somali actress, here are six things you should know about Alisha Boe.
