"13 Reasons Why" Season 2 Is Officially Happening And Fans Are Freaking

After speculation, hoping and begging Netflix for a season two of the hit series 13 Reasons Why - fans have finally been given the answer they had been hoping for.

Selena Gomez is just as excited as you - she shared a brief video clip on Instagram accompanied by the caption: "Their story isn't over".

"Their story isn't over".

The thirteen-episode season, which will pick up in the aftermath of Hannah's death, is due to premiere in 2018.

According to showrunner Brian Yorkey, "Hannah's story is still very much not finished".

Season One - based on Jay Asher's 2007 young adult novel - revolved around Baker's suicide and the subsequent cassettes tapes she sent to classmates explaining her actions.

Though the show garnered solid reviews from critics - it now has an 85 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes - its graphic portrayal of Hannah's death sparked outrage from parents and mental health experts who felt the show glamorized suicide, and feared it would inspire "copycat" acts.

Mental health experts believe that the portrayal of suicide on the show is too visceral and triggering, while it may also have been documented incorrectly by the show's makers.

Selena Gomez, a producer on the series, downplayed the notion that the series could inspire copycats.

Most episodes of 13 Reasons Why that contain these kinds of themes are preceded by a "graphic content" warning, and the entire series carries a TV-MA rating.

"There has been a tremendous amount of discussion about our series 13 Reasons Why".
