Netflix has edited the Season 3 finale of 13 Reasons Why to remove the suicide of a character. “We’ve heard from many young people that 13 Reasons Why encouraged them to start conversations about difficult issues like depression and suicide and get help — often for the first time,” Netflix said in a statement. “As we prepare to launch Season 3 later this summer, we’ve been mindful about the ongoing debate around the show. So on the advice of medical experts … we’ve decided with creator Brian Yorkey and the producers to edit the scene in which Hannah takes her own life from Season 1.” Studies, including one released in April specifically focused on the series, often show that suicide rates spike after portrayals on television.
