13 Reasons Why is one of TV’s buzziest shows for a lot of reasons. Its honest, wrenching take on teen suicide is like nothing we’ve seen on TV before, and it has a huge ensemble cast full of actors who really earn their paychecks.

To help you pinpoint where you’ve seen the most recognizable actors, we’ve nailed down why you know these parents from seasons one and two.
