Netflix Has Removed The Suicide Scene From The First Season Of 13 Reasons Why

Season three is set to land very soon.

13 Reasons Why was one of the most talked-about shows in 2017, when it first landed on Netflix.

While it was loved by many, others felt the subject matter and graphic discussion of suicide was harmful. There were plenty of debates surrounding the show when it was first released, about whether it tackled the tricky subject in the right way.

The show follows a group of high school kids dealing with the recent death of classmate Hannah, who has recorded tapes documenting why she took her own life.

One particularly difficult scene shows 17-year-old Hannah taking her own life.

Now, as season three is set to land on Netflix very soon, the show bosses have decided to remove the scene.

 

“As we prepare to launch season three later this summer, we’ve been mindful about the ongoing debate around the show. So on the advice of medical experts, including Dr. Christine Moutier, Chief Medical Officer at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, we’ve decided with creator Brian Yorkey and the producers to edit the scene in which Hannah takes her own life from season one,” Netflix said.

The scene will now no longer be available on the streaming service.
