Selena Gomez's 13 Reasons Why Gets Straight-to-Series Order From Netflix

More than three years after wrapping her long-running Disney Channel series Wizards of Waverly Place, Selena Gomez is turning her attention back to the small screen.

Netflix has given a 13-episode, straight-to-series order to 13 Reasons Why, based on the 2007 young-adult novel by Jay Asher, our sister publication Variety reports. Gomez is executive-producing the project, along with mom Mandy Teefey, Kristel Laiblin and Anonymous Content. The pilot was written by series creator Brian Yorkey.

The complicated plot of 13 Reasons Why begins with Clay, an introverted high-school student, receiving a box of cassette tapes recorded by his crush (reportedly played by Gomez) who recently committed suicide.
