Wildfires raging in Northern California - which have killed 21 people and burned more than 3,500 structures since starting Sunday - have disrupted filming on the second season of Netflix's 13 Reasons Why, EW has confirmed. Filming for the second season of 13 Reasons Why has had to unfortunately be put on hold, and the reason why is utterly devastating. Production will continue to be on hiatus through Thursday, with additional days being added if necessary.
It is reported that cast and crew have been flown home to get them out of the northern Californian area. With the state's resources mobilized by Governor [Jerry] Brown's declaration of a state of emergency, we trust fire containment will be swift and that recovery will begin quickly. Our immediate priority is the safety and well-being of Santa Rosa's residents and visitors and we encourage people to remain out of the evacuated areas until emergency responders confirm it is safe to return.
13 Reasons Why is coming back in 2018, and there is no word on whether or not their temporary shutdown will affect the release date. The series stirred up considerable controversy with its brutal depiction of sexual assault and suicide but was also hailed for bringing attention to these issues, especially from its teenage perspective. He said: "We film 13 Reasons Why in numerous areas in NorCal affected by these devastating fires".
