People have been wondering why a second season of Netflix's 13 Reasons Why is necessary, considering that the first season wrapped up the story of the book on which it's based pretty firmly.

The National Association of School Psychologists also responded to the show by posting a "13 Reasons Why" guide on its website as a resource for educators and parents.

While the series was praised for raising awareness to traumas facing teens including suicide, sexual assault, substance abuse and bullying, 13 Reasons Why also faced criticism for "glorifying" suicide from mental health advocates and for triggering a surge in online searches.

Schools in Canada reportedly banned discussion of the series and some mental health authorities have said that the graphic scene in the final episode risks "glorifying" suicide.

People loved 13 Reasons Why when it premiered on Netflix previous year.

The clip will autoplay ahead of the first episode in each season.

The new series of 13 Reasons Why will feature a special message before each episodeHis co-star Alisha - who plays Jessica - will then add: "But if you are struggling with these issues yourself, this series may not be right for you".

Some key findings: 71 percent of teens and young adults found the show relatable, and almost three-quarters of teen and young adult viewers said the show made them feel more comfortable processing tough topics.

Netflix original series vice president Brian Wright told The Hollywood Reporter that these new additions won't change anything about the series, but that the results of the recent study caused them to think about ways to improve. It revolves around Hannah who took her own life, and left 13 mix tapes involving several people who she had come across with and somehow impacted her harsh decision.

Note that I said "pretty much", because The Meaning of Life and Live at the Hollywood Bowl aren't mentioned for some reason. Many people criticized the show, saying that it could affect how the younger people and even the vulnerable ones make decisions.

In response to the study's findings, Netflix created a warning video that will run before each season.

And as of now, there's no premiere date for season 2, but we'll be sure you know about it when the news hits.
