Students, parents, and educators are either eagerly awaiting or bracing with trepidation this week's release of the second season of "13 Reasons Why," the show about a high school student's suicide and other controversial topics.

Netflix will release Season 2 of the show on Friday, May 19. As is typical with many original shows on the service, all the season's episodes will become available at once.

The 13-part first season was based on the Jay Asher novel of the same name about a set of cassette tapes left behind by 17-year-old student Hannah Baker detailing whom among her classmates she had problems with.
