Netflix show “13 Reasons Why” has had its fair share of controversies during its three season run so far.

From its handling of teen mental health, sexual assault and depiction of a central character's suicide — which as per some experts led to a spike in adolescent suicide rates — the teen drama generated a lot of noise, not all for the right reasons.

For three seasons, viewers watched as the students of Liberty High School dealt with the repercussions of suicide, sexual assault and a school shooting.

But this week Netflix announced that the end is nigh for its young adult show, which will release its fourth and final season next month.

The streaming platform released a behind-the-scenes video announcing that the series’ final 10 episodes will begin on streaming June 5.

“In the series’ final season, Liberty High School’s senior class prepares for graduation,” reads the season’s logline.

“But before they say goodbye, they’ll have to keep a dangerous secret buried and face heartbreaking choices that could impact their futures forever.”

Several of the show’s cast members are seen embracing and crying in the 1-minute teaser, which offers few hints at what is to come in the final season.

Social media reaction to the news was split, though, with many people celebrating the end of the series, which was adapted from the 2007 Jay Asher book of the same name before going completely off book in its second season.
