Cape Breton Post - - Arts/entertainment -

NEW YORK - Net­flix has re­newed the wa­ter­cooler hit “13 Rea­sons Why” for a sec­ond sea­son.

The stream­ing ser­vice an­nounced Sun­day that it has picked up the se­ries re­volv­ing around the sui­cide of a high school girl. Sea­son two will de­but on Net­flix next year.

While Net­flix doesn’t re­lease rat­ings in­for­ma­tion, “13 Rea­sons Why” has proven a con­ver­sa­tion-start­ing drama. Some have crit­i­cized the show for glo­ri­fy­ing sui­cide, which led to Net­flix adding an ad­di­tional warn­ing ahead of the se­ries.

The Se­lena Gomez-pro­duced “13 Rea­sons Why” is based on Jay Asher’s young adult best­seller.

The sec­ond sea­son will also be 13 episodes long.
