That’s right, folks. The Netflix show 13 Reasons Why is making a comeback! Netflix recently confirmed this on Facebook and Twitter, and I can NOT contain my excitement.

If you don’t already know about this show, well, have you been living under a rock?
People have different opinions on the show.
Some appreciate the show for highlighting modern-day problems teens face these days, such as bullying, harassment, and most importantly, suicide. These matters have been swiped under the rug for far too long.
Some people, however, criticise it because they think it delivers the message that there is no solution other than suicide sometimes.
Netflix also released a 30-minute interview which featured the issues raised in 13 Reasons Why.
Some people are not fond of the idea of a second season.
@13ReasonsWhy i just hope season 2 doesn’t ruin the original story, it was meant only for one season so the only thing I ask is not destroy that please

13 Reasons Why was a great show but I dont see the point of having a 2nd season. We’ve seen Hannah’s story played out so what else is there

My personal opinion, however, is that the show was meant to target the people around the victim. Not the victim themselves. It is to get people to recognize the signs a suicidal person shows and come up with a prevention plan and solutions for those around them who are contemplating suicide before it’s too late.
There were also a lot of unanswered questions too.
Does Alex survive?
Why did Tyler have a chest full of guns and ammo?
What about the lawsuit?
Will there be justice for Jeff?
Maybe we do need a second season.
