Changes Made For Season 2 Of '13 Reasons Why'

But with season two, Netflix hopes to "be a powerful agent for change" with four big updates. There's no definitive answer, but with season two on the way, the streaming service wants to make sure there's less of a grey area this time around, if zero grey area at all. In a bid to better understand the conversation surrounding the show between teens and parents, Netflix commissioned a global research study with Northwestern University's Center on Media and Human Development, "Exploring How Teens and Parents Responded to 13 Reasons Why".

"Our analyses suggest 13 Reasons Why, in its present form, has both increased suicidal awareness while unintentionally increasing suicidal ideation", the study's authors wrote. They surveyed 5,400 teens, young adults, and parents in the United States, United Kingdom, Brazil, Australia, and New Zealand to determine what the show did well, and the areas in which they could improve moving forward.

"The voiceover and the stories that are being told bring us into the past and back to the present much in the way that Hannah's voiceover did in season 1". "Some of the findings were unexpected and profound", Wright continued. The full results of the study can be viewed on Northwestern's website.

The families of two California teens who committed suicide in April blamed "13 Reasons Why" for making the girls believe that suicide was their only option, while the director of a suicide awareness non-profit said he was anxious about the "copy-cat effect" of such a graphic portrayal of suicide.

The couple also listened to the school-aged children's thoughts on the reconciliation work occurring across Northern Ireland . Most notably, they are used in the hit fantasy drama series Game Of Thrones, which is mostly shot in Northern Ireland.

In the clip posted on The Hollywood Reporter, cast members encourage those watching to consider viewing the series with a trusted adult or to avoid the show if the message might be triggering.

She continues: "I've had a number of Asian girls, for example, come up and say that they feel very connected and represented and that means the world to me". "That was our mission from the very first moment and it's really exciting to see that born out of the research".

Parents who participated in the study indicated they wanted more resources for discussions, so Netflix is adding new features to the show for Season 2, which is expected to stream later this year. The site offers resources pertaining to mental health, bullying, substance abuse and sexual assault, and lists contact information for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline and other organizations.
