ET spoke to show creator Brian Yorkey last month at the 13 Reasons Why premiere in Los Angeles, where he talked about the possibility of season two.

“We absolutely could [continue],” Yorkey said. “I think we’d very much like to have that opportunity. We’re not done with these characters. We love them and I want to know what happens next.”

The teen drama, based on the young adult novel of the same name by Jay Asher, follows the tragic story of a high school student's suicide and those she blames for her demise. The series has garnered some controversy since its March release, some criticizing its depiction of suicide.
