Paramount Home Media Distribution has set an April 3 DVD release date for the first season of the acclaimed, and controversial, teen suicide drama “13 Reasons Why.”
Named by USA Today as of the top 15 pop culture moments that defined 2017, “13 Reasons Why” divulges the reasons behind a high school girl’s suicide, through a series of cassette tapes she made just before her death that show up on various friends’ and acquaintances’ doorsteps.
Clay Jensen (Dylan Minnette) returns home from high school to discover a box of tapes, recorded by Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford), his classmate and secret crush, who died by suicide only two weeks before. Hannah’s tapes reveal the 13 reasons that led to her untimely death, and the people she felt were responsible.
Based on the best-selling mystery by author Jay Asher, the drama also features Kate Walsh, Christian Navarro, Alisha Boe and Brandon Flynn.
“13 Reasons Why” was one of the top 10 most-tweeted-about television shows and Google’s most-searched show of the year. Season two will debut on Netflix in 2018.
The 13 Reasons Why: Season One four-disc set includes all 13 episodes, plus the “Beyond the Reasons” special, and new-to-DVD character featurettes, actor interviews, and more. The set is presented in 16×9 widescreen with English 5.1 Dolby Digital and English Audio Description with English and English SDH subtitles.
“13 Reasons Why” is a Paramount Television production.
