Hannah Baker wants her classmates to know why she killed herself.
The show, which is produced by Selena Gomez and mother Mandy Teefy, follows Clay (Dylan Minnette), a teenager who is given 13 cassette tapes that belonged to Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford), a classmate of his who took her own life. The tapes explain why.
The trailer is an emotional rollercoaster that walks us through a lot of iconic high school moments: basketball games, dances, parties. Interspersed throughout are more sinister moments ― crying faces, guns, possible drowning ― as well as Hannah’s narrative where she tells viewers to “settle in, because I’m about to tell you the story of my life.”
She goes on: “More specifically, why my life ended. And if you are listening to this tape, you are one of the reasons why.”
The 13-episode mystery will be released on Netflix March 31. We’ll be biting our nails in the interim.
