'13 Reasons Why' Shuts Down Production Due to Devastating 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.

"We film 13 Reasons Why in numerous areas in NorCal affected by these devastating fires", Dylan Minette wrote.

While firefighters have now surrounded half of the fire, with full containment expected this weekend, the production will remain on hiatus through Thursday, per Deadline. Numerous show's cast members have been flown home due to the conditions being such where it is hard to continue living there and waiting for production to start back. In the time since the fires first began on Sunday, October 8, they have spread to cover over 115,000 acres. More than 20 wildfires have sprung up in California just this week and North California has been hit the hardest. The breakout drama, from Paramount TV, films in Vallejo in the Northern California area that has been ravaged by wildfires. "Sending love and thoughts to everyone involved".

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. "The NorCal/Bay Area has been my home for nearly a year while filming 13 Reasons Why", Druid tweeted.

The 13-episosde second season of 13 Reasons Why, adaption of the bestselling 2007 YA book by Jay Asher, picks up in the aftermath of Hannah Baker's death and the start of the characters' complicated journeys toward healing and recovery.
