Despite warnings from educators throughout the country - including several in Bergen and Passaic counties - Netflix has announced its intention to renew its controversial series “13 Reasons Why” for a second season.

For weeks, local educators and health care specialists have been warning parents about the original series, which is based on a young adult novel of the same name by Jay Asher, but contains mature themes that include suicide and drug abuse.

Educators have cited the show’s mature subject matter, that includes graphic depictions of rape, substance abuse, cyber bullying, voyeurism and suicide, which may not be suitable for students. The show is also co-produced by Selena Gomez, which may have led to it reaching a wider - and younger - audience than the creators intended.

In an effort to assist parents, Hudson Valley educators have made resources available from the National Association of School Psychologists , which provides guidelines and information for parents. Other informational links can be found here:
