'13 Reasons Why' Updates: First Trailer Revealed; Release Date Set On March 31
Teen tragedy "13 Reasons Why" is coming to Netflix. The series adaptation of Jay Asher's novel will premiere on March 31. The first dramatic trailer of the dark teen drama was also released. The series is created by Brian Yorkey and executive produced by Selena Gomez.
The story follows the dark mystery behind a teenage girl's suicide. Clay Jensen (Dylan Minnette) receives cassette tapes from his classmate crush after returning to school. Sounds like romance? But no, the seemingly happy Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford) killed herself two weeks ago leaving 13 cassette tapes to explain why she committed suicide.
The trailer started with a common school setting; Clay and Hannah watching some high school sports and dancing in a prom. The clip suddenly turned ominous. Clay was saying how he admired Hannah. "Why didn't you say this to me when I was alive?" Hannah's voice on the tape asks.
"13 Reasons Why" encompasses tough issues like bullying, depression and emotional abuse. "I'm about to tell you the story of my life," Hannah says in the tape. "More specifically why my life ended. And if you're listening to this tape, you're one of the reasons why."
Clay turns to his classmates for answers but everyone is saying not to believe what she says. Another classmate tags her as a drama queen who killed herself just to get attention. However, Clay wants to get to the bottom of it. The ugly secrets of his classmates will be revealed. The scene shifted to Clay having an emotional outburst in the school.
Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Yorkey described the story. "Jay wrote this book that was incredibly, incredibly tragic and that was dark in so many ways, but ultimately was hopeful and ultimately, I think, about bringing light back into the world." Meanwhile, Selena revealed some difficulties in making the series. She revealed she met and talked to many kids who had the same experience as the characters.
