The cast of "13 Reasons Why" celebrated the second season renewal of their young adult series. During the MTV Movie and TV Awards in Los Angeles Sunday, the actors walked the red carpet in obvious high spirits. Fans spotted Dylan Minnette, Miles Heizer and Ross Butler as they made their way to the Shrine Auditorium. They took videos and photos on the red carpet with fellow cast members, including Alisha Boe.

The boys graced the event because they were tapped to present a Golden Popcorn award as a group. Hours before, Netflix announced their show's renewal.

The stars are expected to still be part of the show's second season, which the streaming site has set for a 2018 release.

Selena Gomez shares second season teaser

Following the renewal confirmation from Netflix, "13 Reasons Why" executive producer Selena Gomez shared the first teaser for the upcoming season on her Instagram. "Their story isn't over," the actress wrote on her social media account, adding "Season 2 of #13ReasonsWhy is coming."

Even before the renewal announcement, Gomez already said Hannah Baker's story is not yet done on the show. This means Katherine Langford will be back to reprise her role even though her character killed herself at the end of the first season.

It's still unclear how Hannah's character will return and in what capacity. Details of "13 Reasons Why" Season 2 are scarce for now despite much fan speculation.

A hit despite controversies

Mental health experts and school authorities criticized the first season of "13 Reasons Why" because of the way it dramatized and glorified teen suicide.

Experts advised parents to disallow their kids from watching the show if they cannot watch it together and provide guidance and adult supervision. The worry is that teens might follow what they watch from the series given the high incidence of bullying and suicide among young adults.

Despite the backlash from experts, "13 Reasons Why" was the most-tweeted show when it launched, according to Time.

In response to the complaints, Netflix added a trigger warning for its viewers. The people behind the series, however, defended the material, citing that the show helps raise awareness of an important and real problem faced by today's kids, and discussing it from watching the show would raise that awareness.

"13 Reasons Why" is based on a 2007 book of the same name. It was written by Jay Asher, who also helped put the show together.
