Netflix has released 13 episodes of the teen drama 13 Reasons Why that is based on the bestselling novel written by Jay Asher with the same name. The show narrates the story of Hannah Baker, who committed suicide for unknown reasons. Days after her death, her closest friend Clay Jensen receives 13 cassette tapes in which she revealed the 13 reasons that prompted her to end her life.
However, the 13 episodes end with 'tape no 7'. There are rumours that the show may return with season 2 featuring the rest of the audio tapes.
"We absolutely could [continue]. I think we'd very much like to have that opportunity. We're not done with these characters. We love them and I want to know what happens next," show creator Brian Yorkey told ET Online as he teased a 'powerful' tale that 'could happen next'.
Selena Gomez has forayed into television as the executive producer of 13 Reasons Why, which premiered on 31 March. The show is garnering positive feedback for touching sensitive teen traumas including, bullying, harassment, rape and suicide and the songstress is hoping that her show will return with season 2.
"I would get in trouble for saying something, but I hope so. I hope people enjoy the first season," Gomez told ET Online.
24-year-old Gomez, who has suffered depression and went to the rehab to treat her anxiety issues has said that she can relate herself with the show's lead protagonist Hanna. "I see myself in Hannah so much. Seven years ago I did and even more so today, which I think is funny because it's backwards. The older I get the more insecure I get, which is odd," she told Hollywood Reporter.
The Kill Em With Kindness singer also blames social media for the major issues youngsters face."But that's something a lot of people can relate to. Her[Hanna] personality is a quiet strength. I've never really been the one to be in anyone's face. A lot of girls feel like they have to be a certain way for attention. Social media has amplified all of that. I get that she didn't want that to be what her life was."
