Adding a warning video at the start of the second run of 13 Reasons Why will hopefully answer some of buzzes that have been circling the series that talks about suicide, bullying, rape, and self-harm.
The video, featuring cast members Dylan Minnette, Katherine Langford, Justin Prentice and Alisha Boe, alerts viewers of the show's content. It suggests that if a viewer is struggling with these issues, he or she may want to avoid the show or watch it with a trusted adult.
Minette adds, "If you ever feel you need someone to talk with, reach out to a parent, a friend, a school counsellor, or an adult you trust, call a local helpline or go to 13ReasonsWhy.info".
