"When you press play on series, that will be the first thing everyone sees", Wright said of the video, which features Langford (Hannah), Minnette (Clay), Justin Prentice (Bryce) and Alisha Boe (Jessica).

There's also set to be an aftershow, which will have 13 Reason Why stars as well as experts sharing stories viewers have told them in a series of YouTube clips called "Tell Them" - which you can check out here.

In a lengthy release posted to their website on Wednesday, the streaming service revealed that they are "taking action" and making changes to the series in hopes of helping parents and teens discuss the "uncomfortable" topics that are often played out on the show.

"13 Reasons Why" may have been an extremely popular drama, but it certainly wasn't without its controversies.

After receiving the results from a study it commissioned from Northwestern University, Netflix has also added more resources for parents and younger viewers to use to start conversations and filmed a new season of 13 Reasons Why's aftershow, Beyond the Reasons that will feature actors, experts, and educators. Yet Season Two is coming, and the show seems to want to do better by teens who may be struggling with the sensitive issues depicted on the show. Some praised the show for bringing topics like depression, sexual assault, and bullying awareness - but, others thought the show took it a step too far and had the potential to encourage those very issues.

The trailer does a decent jobs setting up the circumstances of the story, and it offers some chilling (and chilly) glimpses at a desolate Scandinavian world, but the official synopsis offers more details as to what the series is actually about. And over 50 percent of parents are looking for more resources, prompting Netflix to launch 13ReasonsWhy.Info.

Netflix has not yet issued an official release date for the upcoming second season of "13 Reasons Why".
