Netflix has renewed the watercooler hit 13 Reasons Why for a second season.

The streaming service announced Sunday that it has picked up the series revolving around the suicide of a high school girl.

Season two will debut on Netflix next year. While Netflix doesn't release ratings information, 13 Reasons Why has proven a conversation-starting drama.

Some have criticized the show for glorifying suicide, which led to Netflix adding an additional warning ahead of the series.

The Selena Gomez-produced 13 Reasons Why is based on Jay Asher's young adult bestseller. The second season will also be 13 episodes long.
