  • “Heathers” did the same thing after Parkland. If you have to keep pushing your premiere dates, maybe you’re part of the problem??

    “The second season's storyline focuses in part on a plot having to do with a thwarted school shooting.”

  • I don’t have any idea how a writer could navigate something like this and do it properly. It makes sense that they pulled it - hopefully they’ll take this opportunity to rally people in favor of change as well.

  • I understand canceling the event, but the show is positioned as taking a serious look at these issues, a lot has been made about all the sensitivity and thought that went into it, and the filmmakers have said they want it to spark conversations. If now isn't the time for those conversations, then when

    I understand canceling the event, but the show is positioned as taking a serious look at these issues, a lot has been made about all the sensitivity and thought that went into it, and the filmmakers have said they want it to spark conversations. If now isn't the time for those conversations, then when? Pulling the show now feels cowardly.

  • This will cost money to postpone, but sometimes you just have to do the right thing and pushing this back seems like the right decision. I just hope that these things stop happening. It’s heartbreaking that people worry sending their children to get an education bc somebody could take their life.

  • I started watching this (yes, I’ll admit it) and there is a log disclaimer before episode one that also offers help to teens in distress. The creators of this show have realized that they must use their platform responsibly.

  • This was a wise decision for the time being.
