Gomez, who is an executive producer on the show, shared a season two teaser on Sunday morning, which features memorable settings from the series including Liberty High School, Baker's Drug Store and the Crestmont Theater where Baker worked alongside the show's main character, Clay, played by Dylan Minnette.

"Their story isn't over," Gomez captioned the clip. "Season 2 of #13ReasonsWhy is coming."

ET spoke to show creator Brian Yorkey last month at the 13 Reasons Why premiere in Los Angeles, where he talked about the possibility of season two.

"We absolutely could [continue]," Yorkey said. "I think we'd very much like to have that opportunity. We're not done with these characters. We love them and I want to know what happens next."

The teen drama, based on the young adult novel of the same name by Jay Asher, follows the tragic story of a high school student's suicide and those she blames for her demise. The series has garnered some controversy since its March release, some criticizing its depiction of suicide.
