As if your list of "Things I Need To Watch On Netflix" could get any longer, Selena Gomez has gone and thrown another awesome option into the mix. Complete with gripping narrative, hot cast members and huge playlist potential, there many factors that will push this promise to the top of your To Watch list — 13 Reasons Why, in fact. And I've listed them all for you below. You're welcome.

1. Firstly, Check Out The Trailer Selena Just Posted On Instagram

Watched it? Good. Now here's what you need to know:

2. It's Based On A Best Selling Novel

13 Reasons Why is adapted from Jay Asher's heartbreaking novel of the same name. The story follows a teenager called Clay Jensen who receives a bunch of cassette tapes — 13 to be exact — from a classmate who recently committed suicide. Each tape provides deeper insight into the 13 reasons why she decided to take her own life.

3. It's Her 'Passion Project'

Seeing as Selena is vocally anti-bullying, the narrative for 13 Reasons Why is right up her passion alley. Apparently she was so moved by the book when she read it back in 2011 that she became determined to bring it to the screen.

4. Think 'Gone Girl' Meets 'Pretty Little Liars'
