  • Dylan Minnette in Netflix’s “13 Reasons Why.” The second season of the show will get a warning ahead of each episode

Season one was centered around the story of Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford), who took her own life.

But before her suicide, she had recorded 13 tapes for 13 different people, explaining the reason behind her death and "blaming" them for it.

Netflix previously added title cards with advisory warnings that played before Season 1 episodes. The study also showed that parents agreed that the show brought up important topics, but they wanted more resources added.

The study was commissioned in late summer, with data collected in November. A formal premiere date has not yet been announced but Wright confirmed it will return this year.

"13 Reasons Why" has courted controversy since its release in March of previous year, facing backlash from suicide prevention advocacy groups who say the program glamorizes suicide, the second leading cause of death among those ages 15 to 34, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

But US star Selena Gomez, who is one of 13 Reasons Why's executive producers, has previously spoken out and defended the programme.

He said that plan continued when he began writing the second season last February. It suggests that if a viewer is struggling with these issues, he or she may want to avoid the show or watch it with a trusted adult.

Minnette then appears, replacing Boe, and lists resources people can use if they feel like they need help.

Researchers also found that, of those asked, 67 to 76 percent of teens and young adults were encouraged to be "more considerate" of how they treat others, 45-60 percent said they had since apologised to someone for their behaviour. "That was our mission from the very first moment and it's really exciting to see that born out of the research".

Netflix original series vice president Brian Wright told The Hollywood Reporter that these new additions won't change anything about the series, but that the results of the recent study caused them to think about ways to improve. He also said he hopes Netflix's recognition of his film would help open doors for other Filipino filmmakers.

Part of the conclusion presented by the center's director, Dr. Ellen Wartella, included the opinion that there is area for improvement when dealing with such topics in entertainment.

The video includes cast members talking to the audience about the dangers of suicide and how it is a real-world issue, according to Deadline.
