Reasons Why season 2

Reasons Why season 2

For season two, which premieres Friday, 13 Reasons Why has gone a step further in alerting viewers of its sensitive material: In a cold open before its first episode begins, a 50-second PSA runs featuring numerous main castmembers reading off a strong disclaimer.

The content of season one was certainly provocative, but its presentation was the cause for greatest concern for Dr Dan Reidenberg, whom Netflix contact for advice just before the release of season one.

'In season one, there were themes of revenge suicide - which doesn't happen - and glamorization and nearly romanticization of the lead character, ' he says.

'While from a fiction standpoint, that might be something good...studies have shown that repetitive exposures to [ideas of] suicide and self-harm can pose dangers'. However, its handling of issues commonly faced by teens (bullying, gossip, sexual activity, etc.) offers an opportunity for eye-opening dialogue that will encourage young people to come to the adults in their lives with their problems and experiences.

Just shy of 60 percent of the teenage viewers said that they had conversations about the show with their parents - an outcome psychologists are pleased with. Their recommendations included watching the episodes as a family, consulting with a trusted adult or mental health professional if the show proves triggering, and remaining aware of what local mental health resources are available to you. In response, Netflix reedited the first season to include a disclaimer before its pilot and trigger warnings before its two most graphic episodes.

In series 1, the series depicted the story of a high school student who dies by suicide, leaving behind 13 cassette recordings that share the events that she perceives led to her death.

When Does 13 Reasons Why Season 2 Premiere?

Now when the release date of the second season is coming closer, critics, parents and the school authorities are becoming very concerned about the possibility of another controversy and how it will impact the teenagers. Launching Friday, the return of the YA drama based on Jay Asher's bestselling 2007 novel is really only justified in Netflix's desire to bulk up inventory and attract and maintain subscribers, as I say in my video review above.

You may wish to ask your child/teen if they have heard of or seen this series.

'We want parents to make a thoughtful decision about whether or not they should watch it, and they definitely should not be watching it alone'.

Mental health campaigner Mike King said the show carried important messages. "Thank you so much for talking to me, '" Li said.

He added: "There was conversation around these issues that wasn't happening before".
