Netflix very close to renewing 13 Reasons Why for second season

On the other hand, people say that the show is an important reminder about the effect actions and words can have on individuals and the impact of social media with the new generation. And we agree that it's a good thing to let parents know and make their own decisions.

The series, based on a young adult novel by Jay Asher, also deals with topics such as sexual assault, drug and alcohol use, and bullying.

Mental health organisations criticised its inclusion of a graphic suicide while officials at some schools in the U.S. have sent out letters to parents warning them about the show's content.

"The book and series are fictional, about a high school girl (who) commits suicide and leaves behind tapes for the people in her life to listen to - that explain the "13 reasons why" she chose to kill herself".

A controversial new series about teen suicide is causing serious discussions among parents and students in Douglas County. "I wasn't expecting that's so I turned it off, and like never watched it again".

In all fairness, the show never claimed to be a mental health awareness show - it never claimed to have flawless guidelines for suicide awareness. While, according to Hannah, these people bullied her to the point of suicide, she, in turn, bullied them into listening to her tapes.

Executive produced by Selena Gomez, 13 Reasons Why launched on the streaming service on March 31. Utahns can also visit Hope4Utah and the Suicide Prevention Resource Center online for additional resources.

Netflix's popular teen drama isn't only the most tweeted-about Netflix show, it's the most tweeted-about show ever this year. However, Trapp added that they just allow their children to watch the show only with their presence.

Deputy Chief Censor Jared Mullen said if teenagers wanted to watch 13 Reasons Why, they needed to be able to discuss the issues raised with a responsible adult.

Throughout the show, the idea that you don't know what is going on in someone else's life is repeated constantly.

One public school in the area voiced concern to its parent community, pointing out that 'while the show is fictional, the series is extremely graphic, including several rape scenes, and raises significant concerns about the emotional safety of those watching it'.
