PTC Condemns Netflix’s “13 Reasons Why” Renewal

Written by PTC | Published June 6, 2018

The Parents Television Council issued a statement in response to Netflix's announcement that it is renewing "13 Reasons Why" for a third season. “We condemn Netflix for renewing its teen-targeted suicide drama ’13 Reasons Why.’ The company already potentially has the blood of children on their hands from keeping this series - with its graphic suicide scene, its sodomization of a teen boy and a potential school shooting, among other adult content - on its platform for children to view. The PTC will be participating in the shareholder meeting today and asking Netflix how it justifies keeping this program on the air,” said PTC President Tim Winter.
