The 13 Reasons Why Obsession
Netflix's adaptation of Jay Asher's bestselling 2007 novel, 13 Reasons Why, premiered in March and quickly became one of the most talked-about shows of the year. Praised for its honest depiction of teen suicide, 13 Reasons Why tells the story of Hannah Baker, who explains what led to her suicide in a series of 13 heartbreaking cassette tapes she leaves behind. Despite its popularity, the show was also met with criticism by some who claimed the format glorifies suicide, but a writer of the show passionately claimed the message is that "suicide is not a relief at all," and the cast weighed in on the most controversial scene. Off screen, the 13 Reasons Why cast won over fans with their fun friendships and social media snaps, and we can expect to see even more of them next year. Netflix has confirmed plans for a second season premiering in 2018, which will focus on the aftermath of Hannah's death.
