'13 Reasons Why' Scraps Season 2 Premiere Party After Santa Fe School Shooting

Netflix is canceling the premiere party for the Selena Gomez-produced teen drama series, which was scheduled to take place on Friday, May 18, in light of the tragedy.

AceShowbiz - Netflix bosses have cancelled a premiere event for Selena Gomez's hit TV drama 13 Reasons Why in the wake of the Santa Fe High School shooting tragedy on Friday, May 18.

Nine students and a teacher were killed when a teenage gunman opened fire on the campus of the Texas school, prompting renewed calls for gun control laws in the U.S.

Following the tragedy, Netflix officials decided to axe a Friday night event for the second season of their hit series, which revolves around a teen suicide.

"Our hearts are with the victims of the Santa Fe High School shooting, and with all victims of gun violence," a statement reads. "In light of today's tragedy, we are cancelling the 13 Reasons Why S2 (season two) premiere event tonight."

The second season's story line features a school shooting plot.

The show, which is produced by Gomez and her mother, returned to the streaming site on Friday.
