13 Reasons Why Season 2 came out last Friday, and it has gotten mixed reviews. Season 1 of the Netflix series was about Hannah Baker’s suicide and the tapes she left behind describing the events that led to it. The first season was met with a lot of praise, but with an equal amount of criticism. The show made it a point to represent sexual assault in its’ true form, but the scenes can be disturbing. Some critics claim that the show is too graphic. In season 2, viewers are told about 13reasonswhy.info, a website with resources for those who need help with suicidal thoughts. Season 2 deals with the aftermath of Hannah’s death, including a civil trial involving Hannah’s parents and the high school. Season 2 hasn’t received as much praise as season 1 did, and schools are sending out emails to parents with warnings about the show. We’ll have to wait and see if season 2 is as successful as season 1.
