Netflix agrees to edit suicide scene from ‘13 Reasons Why’ — after teen suicides spiked in months after Season 1 premiere

Did “13 Reasons Why” lead to a rise in suicides among teenagers?

When the series began streaming on Netflix NFLX, +0.44% in March 2017, child psychologists and parents warned that a show about teenage suicide could cause young people who watched the series to carry out copycat suicides. The show, based on the book of the same name by Jay Asher, follows the story of Hanna Baker, a teenager who kills herself and leaves behind a cassette tape outlining 13 reasons why she decided to take her own life.

This week, Netflix announced that it would edit a three-minute scene where Hanna takes her own life in Season 1.
