13 Reasons Why

NETFLIX13 Reasons Why season 2 The show has explored some hard hitting issues

There's more of the controversial teen drama "13 Reasons Why" to come.

Also revealed with the premiere date was the season promo. The new episodes pick up shortly after the suicide of Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford), who left an audio diary detailing the emotional reasons why she chose to kill herself and calling out the people "responsible" for her decision.

In response to the criticism, Season 2 starts with a cast-led public-service announcement emphasizing the show's desire to start a conversation about mental health, and urging viewers to seek help if they need it.

Season 1 ended with Hannah's (Katherine Langford) tapes falling into her mother's hands, and the lawyers investigating the school's culpability in her suicide discovering their existence. Liberty High prepares to go on trial, but someone will stop at nothing to keep the truth surrounding Hannah's death concealed. Each new tape that Hannah left behind for her classmates - including Dylan Minnette's Clay - was another revelation in the season-long mystery and fans couldn't get enough.

Netflix will launch the second season of the critically acclaimed series on Friday, May 18, 2018.

The new trailer shows a load of the major characters frozen in time, surrounded by a heap of polaroids suspended mid-air before arriving at Clay, who picks one up off the floor and turns it over.
