Get Ready For the 3rd Season of 13 Reasons Why

Season 3 of Netflix’s “13 Reasons Why” will be back this October. The show is considered as one of the most controversial shows on the giant streaming service.

The show touched some hard topics such as suicide, sexual assault, depression and more.

One of the show’s actors, Zack Prusak posted this on Twitter:

Netflix hasn’t confirmed the news yet but you can be sure the new season will be out soon.

Although Netflix got lots of bad comments regarding the content of the show, they have been very carful and put on a warning before each episode and the cast is involved in projects to increase awareness.

Brian Yorkey, the creator of the show, talked about the importance of dealing with such harsh issues: “We know that sexual assault is hugely under-reported, sexual assault with male victims is exponentially more under-reported than even sexual assault in general. And as a show that had already said we are going to tell the stories of sexual assault victims and survivors, and we’re going to tell them in a way that is unflinching and honest, we said, wow, not only does this seem a credible story to be told but in a way we felt there was an imperative to tell it. Because no-one was telling it.” He continued “That was a story that wasn’t being told, it was a story that is happening in high schools today and we felt we not only had the opportunity but the responsibility to tell it.”

The last season was about the trial of Hannah Baker’s suicide.

We will have to wait a bit more to see how things turn around.

Netflix Again Under Pressure To Cancel ‘’13 Reasons Why’’

The controversial drama series, which is based on the novel of the same name and depicts teen suicide, is running for the 2nd straight season at Netflix.

Streaming giant Netflix has come under pressure from regulatory bodies to cancel ‘’13 Reasons Why’’ after the drama aired a male rape scene.

‘’13 Reasons Why’’ is based on a young-adult book of author Jay Asher of the same name. The main character of the series is Hannah, a high-school girl who committed suicide and left behind 13 cassette tapes for Clay, her boyfriend.

Just like its debut season which was aired last May, the second season has also generated controversy. It deals with the topics of school shootings, sexual assault, rape culture, and addiction. The main theme of the show, however, is mental illness and depression.

Critics have slammed the show for containing ‘’needlessly graphic’’ scenes, despite the fact it comes with a mature content disclaimer in which the lead stars of the show tell the audience that the upcoming season will tackle ‘’tough, real-world issues’’.

The show goes as far as to advise its younger viewers to watch it with an adult. Netflix, on the other hand, wanted to avoid this critique by prefacing all the episodes with PSA’s warning. It also provides a number of valuable online resources for sexual assault, mental health, bullying, and suicide.

Still, that hasn’t satisfied the Parents Television Council which claims that the show provides “cause for despondency’’.

“Netflix has delivered a ticking time bomb to teens and children who watch 13 Reasons Why,’” said group president Tim Winter in a statement.

“We would have liked to have 13 reasons for hope and redemption following the graphic suicide of the lead character, but rather than providing a path forward, the season only provides cause for despondency,” Winter lamented.

Responding to the criticism, Brian Yorkey, the creator of the show, told Vulture: “We fully understand that that means some of the scenes in the show will be difficult to watch.

“I think Netflix has helped provide viewers with lots of resources for understanding that this may not be the show for everybody, and also resources for people who do watch it and are troubled and need help.’’

When asked specifically about the male rape scene, here’s what the Executive producer Mandy Teefey had to say: ‘’ “I would just suggest that they Google the news.”

“It’s shocking, it’s horrific, but it’s happening. There’s videos that people post and that’s online forever. It’s [in] the culture, so just look it up and educate yourself that you need look out for this.”

‘’13 Reasons Why’’ Season 2: Trailer, Premiere Date Revealed

The ’13 Reasons Why’ drama series, which has become controversial for its depiction of teen suicide, will be aired for the 2nd season running on Netflix.

Netflix has announced that it will premiere the season 2 of highly controversial ‘’13 Reasons Why’’ drama series on May 18, 2018. The online streaming giant announced the premiere data on its social media, alongside the caption, “The tapes were just the beginning.”

The announcement has come days after Netflix teased the fans of ‘’13 Reasons Why’’ with various posts over the last few days. One of these posts, which were posted on Monday, contained a live stream showcasing two Polaroid photos, leaving fans of the drama series wondering for several hours.

While the announcement regarding the Premiere data has come out just now, Season 2 of the ‘’13 Reasons Why’’ was confirmed last May. The debut season was aired in March 2017 and its content quickly generated widespread buzz.

‘’13 Reasons Why’’ drama series is based on a young-adult book of author Jay Asher by the same name. The protagonist of the drama is a high-school girl, Hannah, who has committed suicide but not before leaving 13 cassette tapes for her boyfriend Clay.

The movie, therefore, revolves around those tapes in which Hannah, whose role is played by Katherine Langford, tells Clay (Dylan Minnette) the reason for her suicide. The drama also includes stars Alisha Boe, Christian Navarro, Justin Prentice, Brandon Flynn, Miles Heizer, Kate Walsh, and Brian d’Arcy James.

Season 2 of the drama begins in the immediate aftermath of the death of Hannah, before showing how his friends and family cope with her death while also trying to piece together their lives. It has also been revealed that in the second season, parents of Hannah will file a lawsuit against her school.

Source of Controversy of ‘’13 Reasons Why’’

As told earlier, the whole drama revolves around the suicide of a high-school girl, hence the reason why it is so controversial. So furious was the uproar after its first episode was aired last year that Netflix decided to add more viewer warnings.

What’s more, Netflix has now revealed that the Second Season will contain a new warning video before each episode to tell viewers the ways to get help. Netflix is also planning an after-show, ‘’Beyond the Reasons’’, in which the actors of the show, in addition to experts and educators try to break down the logic behind the series.

Despite courting so much controversy, ‘’13 Reasons Why’’ enjoyed widespread popularity in its maiden season. For, it became 2017’s fourth most tweeted about TV show, lagging only behind Game of Thrones, Stranger Things, and Big Brother.

“13 Reasons Why’’ Author Expelled Over Harassment Claims

Author Jay Asher, whose New York Times best-seller novel ’13 Reasons Why’ was later turned into a Netflix series, has been expelled over harassment claims from a writers organization.

Almost a year after the sacking took place, the executive director of Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), a writing organization, has now revealed that it expelled Author Jay Asher after the Author violated the organization’s harassment code.

The news has come after a ‘School Library Journal article’ highlighted the allegations of sexual misconduct against illustrators and writers. The article mainly revolved around describing allegations of misconduct against David Diaz (Smoky Night) and Guiseppe Castellano, who is the executive art director at Penguin Workshop.

Once the article was published, its comments section received torrents of comments from anonymous persons urging the writer to include the name of Jay Asher on the list.  So furious was the reaction that Lin Oliver, the executive director of SCBWI, was forced to answer the comments.

In the response, which was published on Sunday night, the main focus of Oliver was to address allegations that SCBWI was apparently backing Asher.  “Please understand that SCBWI can only take action on what has been reported,’’ she said, before dropping the bombshell. ‘’ Two men have been reported — David Diaz and Jay Asher,”

She then announced that both these members were expelled last year, which means they are not allowed to even become members of the writing organization, let alone as its faculty or speakers on the events that it organizes.

Further explaining the reasoning behind the organization’s decision to expel Asher, Oliver told Buzzfeed that the majority of the complaints against Asher were sent by anonymous persons via Email. Defending the organization’s decision to terminate Asher’s membership of SCBWI, she claimed that proper investigation was done and only afterwards was the decision taken.

As for Asher, he denies being expelled by SCBWI in an interview to Buzzfeed. The famed author further claimed SCBWI told him that the ‘emails showed nothing’, while also claiming that he felt that he felt that he was being ‘thrown under the bus’.

Asher’s ‘Thirteen Reasons Why’, a novel which has sold more than three million copies over the last decade, has generated both controversy and fame. Its detractors claim that the novel is dangerous as it depicts the approach to suiciding.
