Netflix Edits Out ’13 Reasons Why’ Graphic Suicide Scene From Season 1
After two years, a graphic suicide scene has been edited out of the first season of Netflix’s “13 Reasons Why.”

In a statement Monday night, Netflix said it made the decision in consultation with the show’s creator, Brian Yorkey, producers and “the advice of medical experts.”

“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. “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.”
