'13 Reasons Why' Shuts Down Production Due To Devastating Northern California Wildfires

12 October 2017

At least 15 people are dead, mostly in Sonoma County, and more than 200 reported missing as entire neighborhoods in Santa Rosa were engulfed and burned to the ground.

Netflix has shut down production on the second season of 13 Reasons Why due to the raging wildfires that are now devastating the Northern California area (via The Hollywood Reporter).

The show, with Selena Gomez at the helm as executive producer, was in production for its highly-anticipated second series but has been forced to take a break in wake of the fires that've devastated the region.

California has been hit by more than 20 wildfires since Sunday, thanks to unseasonably high temperatures, dry conditions and winds. In the time since the fires first began on Sunday, October 8, they have spread to cover over 115,000 acres.

It films in Vallejo, which is in north California where the fires have taken hold, but a hiatus has been put in place for today and Thursday.

Several of the cast members have spoken out about the devastating wildfires.

"13 Reasons Why" Season 2 is slated to have 13 episodes, arriving on Netflix in 2018. "The NorCal/Bay Area has been my home for nearly a year while filming 13 Reasons Why", Druid tweeted.

Dylan Minnette, who plays Clay Jensen in the teen drama, and Devin Druid, who plays Tyler Down, have both tweeted their sadness over the fires and their well-wishes for those affected.
