Reasons Why's second series will feature cast warning about show's 'tough topics'

Season two of popular teen drama 13 Reasons Why is set to look a bit different from the original, with streaming giant Netflix taking some additional steps to assist viewers who may be affected by the content of the show.

"13 Reasons Why" is undergoing some changes in Season 2 to help facilitate discussions between parents and teens about hard topics like suicide, bullying, and sexual assault.

Almost 75% of teens said that they tried to be more considerate about how they treated others after watching the show.

Netflix has also added a viewing guide to the website 13reasonswhy.info that is meant to help facilitate conversations between parents and teenagers about hard topics.

On Wednesday, Netflix shared video content on how the show has helped some viewers get through hard circumstances. And now, for Season 2, the show will directly respond to the complaints that it glamorizes teenage suicide.

A high school student was shot five times in the parking lot of Pearl-Cohn High School. "The shooter fired a round as well". But it could have dragged on longer and proven deadlier were it not for the rapid response of a school resource officer.

Netflix's new warning video, which sends a strong message, features the cast members of the series - Dylan Minnette (Clay Jensen), Katherine Langford (Hannah Baker), Justin Prentice (Bryce Walker) and Alisha Boe (Jessica Davis).

The thriller premiered at the Tokyo International Film Festival in 2016 and showed in the Philippines at the Pistang Pelikulang Pinoy (PPP) in August a year ago.

However, the results also showed that Netflix could do more to respond to the concerns of parents, the company said.

This isn't to say that the producers behind "13 Reasons Why" are denying that there might be an issue with suicidal teens getting ideas from the story.

"But if you are struggling with these issues yourself, this series may not be right for you". The aftershow will include more of the show's stars, as well as mental health professionals that worked on the series. And over 50 percent of parents are looking for more resources, prompting Netflix to launch 13ReasonsWhy.Info.
