Netflix Renews “13 Reasons Why” Series

Despite the minor controversies raging over its subject matter of teen suicide and how the series deal with the topic, Netflix has given a second season order to “13 Reasons Why” based on the young adult novel.

The story centers on the aftermath of Liberty High School student Hannah’s (Katherine Langford) suicide, in which several of her friends and classmates receive tapes explaining their part in her decision to take her life.

The series, which has been a hit, is also replacing original showrunner Diana Son with Tony and Pulitzer winner Brian Yorkey (” Next to Normal”). Yorkey served as a creator, producer, and writer on every episode in the first season.

No release date is yet set for the new season.
