'13 Reasons Why' Renewed for a Second Season at Netflix

Netflix's watercooler hit "13 Reasons Why" will be back for a second season at Netflix, Variety has confirmed.

And instead of a suicide note, Hannah made a decision to leave tapes behind to a selected few school peers - including love interest Clay, played by Dylan Minnette, explaining the events that led to her death.

The popular drama is returning for their sophomore run next year, and will consist of 13 more hour-long episodes, as Brian Yorkey will continue on as the show-runner, learned The Hollywood Reporter.

13 Reasons Why is now streaming on Netflix. The show struck up much debate over whether it was a responsible depiction of issues such as self-harm and suicide, and just last week Netflix was forced to add trigger warnings to the show.

Dylan Minette and Katherine Langford will reportedly reprise their roles as Clay and Hannah in the second season of 13 Reasons Why.

It has received plenty of negative attention, but rocks a Certified Fresh 85 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. "Season 2 of #13ReasonsWhy is coming", she captioned the video. Psychologists have condemned the show, saying "teenage suicide is contagious". 13 Reasons Why is directed by Oscar Winner Tom McCarthy (Spotlight), Written by Tony and Pulitzer Prize Winner Brian Yorkey (Next to Normal), and executive produced by Selena Gomez, Joy Gorman and Brian Yorkey from Anonymous Content, and Kristel Laiblin.

"We stayed very true to the book", Gomez said. "When we hear adults saying 'adults wouldn't react that way, ' I can guarantee, I've heard from teens who said that's what happened when they reached out". "So, I'm overwhelmed that's it's doing as well as it's doing".

On Sunday, multiple sources reported that Netflix has greenlighted a second season.
