  • 13 Reasons Why's second series will feature cast warning about show's'tough topics

Netflix announced Wednesday that its popular teen drama will now feature a short video ahead of the first episode of each season starring cast members breaking character to offer viewers support.

The intro will be played before episodes, both as a warning to and show of support for viewers.

Aside from the video, Netflix has added a downloadable viewing guide to help parents and teens talk about the show's hard themes, according to the online statement. "The challenge of when you are making a piece of entertainment for young viewers is that you want very much to make something that has a positive impact on their lives, but the instant that you become instructive and try to tell them the message that you want to convey and the right choices to make, they will tune out".

"By shedding a light on these hard topics, we hope our show can help start a conversation, but if you are struggling with these issues yourself, this series might not be right for you, or you may want to watch it with a trusted adult", the new message at the start of the program, recited by the series' starring actors, states. "[The site] will now include a viewing guide to help parents and teens start these tough conversations", Netflix explained.
