It鈥檚 been聽just over a year since the first season of 13 Reasons Why premiered on Netflix, and now we finally have a release date and trailer for season 2.

The second season,聽which will pick up in the aftermath of Hannah Baker鈥檚 tragic suicide,will be available on Netflix on Friday, May 18. So soon!

The mysterious cassette tapes聽Hannah left behind 鈥渨ere just the beginning,鈥 according to the trailer. We鈥檝e known for a while that an additional聽form of analog technology would be featured in聽the second season, and now the聽teaser has confirmed that Polaroid pictures will be a major factor in untangling the聽truth about Hannah鈥檚 death.

The retro instant photos hint at more secrets, threats, coverups, and violence among Hannah鈥檚 classmates, including聽Clay (Dylan Minnette), Jessica (Alisha Boe), Tony (Christian Navarro), and Bryce (Justin Prentice), as well as her mother and Liberty High principal Mr. Bolan.

13 Reasons Why was adapted from the YA novel of the same name,聽and while it was an instant hit for Netflix, it also drew its share of criticism from those who felt its depiction of teen suicide was聽irresponsible聽and potentially triggering. The streaming service took the concerns to heart, conducting a study through聽Northwestern University鈥檚 Center on Media and Human Development, the results of which have helped inform season 2.

A disclaimer will now run before each episode of the show,聽pointing viewers to a聽new website聽containing resources for those struggling with mental health issues, bullying, addiction, or suicidal thoughts. 鈥淭he hope is that the steps we鈥檙e taking now will help support more meaningful conversations as season 2 rolls out,鈥澛燦etflix鈥檚 VP of original series, Brian Wright, said. 鈥淲e鈥檝e seen in our research that teens took positive action after watching the series, and now 鈥 more than ever 鈥 we are seeing the power and compassion of this generation advocating on behalf of themselves and their peers.鈥

13 Reasons Why season 2聽premieres on Netflix on聽Friday, May 18.
