Netflix Removes Graphic '13 Reasons Why' Suicide Scene

Netflix Removes Graphic '13 Reasons Why' Suicide Scene

Netflix is in the process of changing its graphic 13 Reasons Why suicide scene, which first aired on the streaming service over two years ago.

The almost three-minute-long scene was met with controversy for its graphic depiction of main character Hannah taking her own life.

The new scene, which is in the process of being changed on the Netflix site, no longer depicts Hannah’s suicide but instead cuts directly to her parents’ reaction.

“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. As we prepare to launch season three later this summer, we’ve been mindful about the ongoing debate around the show,” Netflix said in a statement.

They continued, “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.”

Brian added, “Our creative intent in portraying the ugly, painful reality of suicide in such graphic detail in season one was to tell the truth about the horror of such an act, and make sure no one would ever wish to emulate it. But as we ready to launch season three, we have heard concerns about the scene from Dr. Christine Moutier at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and others, and have agreed with Netflix to re-edit it… We believe this edit will help the show do the most good for the most people while mitigating any risk for especially vulnerable young viewers.”

Anne Winters Reveals The '13 Reasons Why' Scene She Has a Hard Time Watching

Anne Winters is opening up about a certain scene of 13 Reasons Why she can’t watch.

The 24-year-old actress has one scene in particular from a past season that’s hard for her – Tyler’s sexual assault scene in season two.

“It was very graphic. I could barely watch it honestly,” she told RadioTimes. “It was very disturbing. I could see how that provoked a lot of controversy to be honest.”

“At the same time I love being on a show that has so much controversy because it’s in everyone’s line of conversation, and everyone’s talking about it. I think that’s great,” Anne continued. “But that was crazy: that scene is definitely one that I will not watch again.”

She also thinks that abortion should be a topic in the third season.

“Abortion should be a topic. I don’t know if she should do it or not, I’m going to leave that up to the writers. But I think that it should definitely be discussed,” she told THR. If you forgot, it was revealed that her character Chloe was pregnant in the last episode of season two.

Study Reveals If '13 Reasons Why' Was Linked To Teen Suicide Rate

Study Reveals If '13 Reasons Why' Was Linked To Teen Suicide Rate

The National Institutes of Health have unveiled the findings of their study, finding that 13 Reasons Why has been associated with the spike in teen suicides.

Released earlier this week in the “Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry,” the results found there was a 28.9% increase in U.S. children between the ages of 10-17 that killed themselves in April 2017, one month after the series debuted.

However, that percentage is among boys, not girls.

Professor Joel Greenhouse, a statistics professor at Carnegie Mellon University and one author of the study, said that it’s important to note that researchers “cannot make a causal link” between the series and the sharp increase in youth suicide

After the study was released, Netflix shared a statement about it: “We’ve just seen this study and are looking into the research, which conflicts with last week’s study from the University of Pennsylvania. This is a critically important topic and we have worked hard to ensure that we handle this sensitive issue responsibly.”

13 Reasons Why‘s third season is expected to debut later this year on the streaming service.
