Unfortunately, Gomez didn't share any specifics about the release date or what the focus of the new season will be. However, in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix said that season two "picks up in the aftermath of Hannah Baker's death and the start of the characters' complicated journeys toward healing and recovery."

Judging from the show's official Facebook page, there are definitely mixed feelings about the show's renewal.

"All this show needed was a wrap up episode. Now you've destroyed the original concept and have turned this into another stupid teen drama," one person wrote in the comments section. "You're also just romanticizing suicide."

"I'm glad there is a season two because season one was about Hannah's story not just her suicide, her story and I feel like this will be Tyler's story," another person commented. "I see it not as a new season but a new story ... Because the reality of a depression, a suicide, a life, is that there are always others involved."

Despite the backlash, Gomez has not shied away from defending her show.

"We stayed very true to the book and that's initially what Jay Asher created was a beautifully tragic, complicated yet suspenseful story and I think that's what we wanted to do," the "It Ain't Me" songstress told the Associated Press. "We wanted to do it justice and, yeah, [the backlash is] going to come no matter what. It's not an easy subject to talk about, but I'm very fortunate with how it's doing and I'm overwhelmed, very proud of it."

The controversial series is set to return in 2018 with 13 hour-long episodes for fans' binge-watching pleasure.
