It seems like every year there is a new TV show that blows up on the internet. In the beginning of April the Netflix original TV series 13 Reasons Why was that show; everyone was watching it. It was released on Netflix on March 31st. You may not know this about the show, but Selena Gomez is one of the co-producers.
13 Reasons Why is about a young girl named Hannah Baker, played by Katherine Langford, who was bullied in highschool and she kills herself. A young boy that was in love with her named Clay Jensen, played by Dylan Minnette, finds a box containing thirteen tapes inside. He later finds out that they are tapes from Hannah explaining why she killed herself and who caused it. Each tape is directed at a different person and they each have a connection as to why Hannah did it. Clay goes through many different emotions during the show listening to the tapes. Netflix posted all thirteen episodes at once, some people say they did this so you either had to listen to the tapes all at once like Alex or slowly like Clay. The Netflix series was originally a book written by Jay Asher. There is a second season coming out in 2018.
