Netflix has released a new teaser for an upcoming series titled 13 Reasons Why. The series is based on the best-selling YA mystery novel of the same name written by Jay Asher, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.
The story centers around Hannah Baker, a teenager who committed suicide and leaves behind a series of recordings explaining the thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. These recordings are found by a fellow classmate, Clay Jensen, who learns about Hannah’s pain, and also discovers he is one of the reasons.
Rights to the novel were acquired back in 2011 by Universal Pictures with Selena Gomez to star as the lead, Hannah Baker. But the rights expired and then in 2015, Netflix announced they would be creating the series with Selena as an executive producer.
13 Reasons Why will be a 13-episode series and hits Netflix on March 31st.
Stars Katherine Langford, Dylan Minnette and Alisha Boe.
