'13 Reasons Why' premiere canceled after Texas shooting
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Netflix has canceled the premiere party for its second season of the teen drama "13 Reasons Why" because of a school shooting near Houston.
The streaming service announced the cancellation hours before the scheduled premiere and red carpet event, citing the Friday morning shooting at Santa Fe High School that left 10 people dead.
Despite the cancelled premiere, the entire Season 2 is available on Netflix.
The first season of "13 Reasons Why" drew criticism for its graphic depiction of a teenager's suicide. The second season focuses on the aftermath of the girl's death, and includes a storyline about a thwarted school shooting.
The show's launch party was expected to feature appearances by show stars Katherine Langford, Dylan Minnette, Kate Walsh and others, and producer Selena Gomez.
