The executive producer behind the project shared her thanks message on her Instagram, right after the Hollywood premiere.
“Our show @13reasonswhy came out tonight and I couldn’t be more overwhelmed with pride and joy,” she writes. “After 7 years of holding onto this book, I couldn’t of picked a better time for this message to exist. Jay Asher wrote a beautifully tragic, compelling story and we were lucky to have brought it to life.”
Selena added, “Thank you to every single soul that put their heart into this passion project.”
Speaking with E! recently, Selena also opened up about the message and why this project has stuck with her for almost seven years.
“I think the message, how I felt when I first read the book, I felt like Hannah, and now, seven years later, I still felt like Hannah even more than I ever did,” she said.
Selena adds, “So I think the message and people, no matter what age you are, can relate to the story. Everybody has gone through this, and more than ever it should be talked about today.”
13 Reasons Why is out NOW on Netflix.
