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

Netflix's 13 Reasons Why has halted production on season two amid the Northern California wildfires that have been destroying the area, Deadline reports.

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.

The death toll in wildfires that are raging across the western USA state of California increased to 17 with hundreds of people having been hospitalized, Sputnik reported. Filming will resume Sunday, as the cast and crew already had Friday and Saturday off.

It is reported that cast and crew have been flown home to get them out of the northern Californian area.

Leading actor Dylan Minnette, who plays Clay Jensen, took to Twitter to share the news of the filming hiatus and send his thoughts and prayers to those affected by the tragedy. With the state's resources mobilized by Governor [Jerry] Brown's declaration of a state of emergency, we trust fire containment will be swift and that recovery will begin quickly.

13 Reasons Why, slated to return in 2018, is directed by Oscar victor Tom McCarthy; written by Yorkey; and executive produced by Gomez, Yorkey, McCarthy, Joy Gorman, Michael Sugar and Steve Golin from Anonymous Content, Kristel Laiblin and Mandy Teefey. My heart goes out to all affected by these terrible fires.
