Our hearts are heavy. With news of the wave of protests the world over after the tragic killing of George Floyd, we hear so many voices. Outrage, anger, a demand for change is what dominates every medium – and rightly so. However, the need to temporarily take respite in something – a book, a documentary, a podcast – is warranted and to that end, Netflix has some fine offerings airing this month  


13 Reasons Why: Season 4  

In the powerful final season of 13 Reasons Why, Liberty High School's Senior Class prepares for graduation. But before they can say goodbye, the crew of friends will have to band together one last time to keep a dangerous secret buried, try to make peace with the past four years, and face final, heartbreaking choices that might alter their lives forever. Showrunner Brian Yorkey and stars Dylan Minette, Grace Saif, Christian Navarro, Alisha Boe and more return for a fourth and final season that's full of twists, turns, and the resounding message that you can't move forward if you're still haunted by the past. It'll cause controversy but be a must-watch.
