The Trailer For Selena's New Show Will Give You Goosebumps

Earlier this year we brought you theĀ very exciting news that Selena Gomez had been working on a secret "passion" project with Netflix.

13 Reasons Why, a show co-produced by Selena and her mum, is based on a young adult novel of the same name and the teaser trailer alone was enough to give us chills.

But after watching the official behind-the-scenes featurette we have straight-up GOOSEBUMPS; as well as getting more of a glimpse at what direction the story is going to take, the cast pop in to to chat through their experience of the show, and their passion is SO real.

"I think everyone has taken this so seriously, and taken it to heart, that we want to tell this story the best that we can," Brandon Flynn, who plays Justin, explains in the clip. "So we embrace all the issues with ease and grace, but with truth."

A peek at a passion project I've been working on with @Netflix. @13ReasonsWhy arrives 3/31.

The show follows the story of Clay, played by Dylan Minnette, who finds himself in possession of 13 cassette tapes recorded by his former classmate Hannah, who has recently died by suicide.

As Clay begins to listen to the tapes, he realises that each one focuses on how twelve people in Hannah's life - including one teacher - impacted on her life, hurting her in some way.

In the trailer, Dylan talks about how afraid Clay becomes while getting deeper into the contents of the cassettes, revealing that "he doesn't know where he's going to come in."

"Every time he's about to start a tape, he fears that it's going to be his," Dylan continues.

Similar to fellow teen drama Riverdale, 13 Reasons Why will air globally on Netflix, one episode at a time, with the first episode dropping Friday March 31.

In the meantime, check out the full featurette in the clip above.

If you or someone you know is struggling with suicide, you can call Lifeline's 24-hour crisis line on 13 11 14.
