California Wildfires Halt Production on Netflix’s Drama ’13 Reasons Why’


Californian wildfires have shut down production on the set of Selena Gomez’s cult Netflix drama 13 Reasons Why.

Cameras stopped rolling on the second season of the show in Vallejo after the cast and crew were evacuated due to poor air quality in the area.

The set will be closed on Wednesday (11Oct17) and Thursday to allow the smoke from the northern California blazes to clear. Filming is expected to resume on Sunday.

Selena is an executive producer of the series after buying the rights to Jay Asher’s book when she was a teenager.

The show’s star, Dylan Minnette, has tweeted his support to those battling the blaze, writing: “We film 13 Reasons Why in many of the areas in NorCal affected by these devastating fires. Sending love and thoughts to everyone involved.”

California has been hit by more than 20 wildfires since Sunday, thanks to unseasonably high temperatures, dry conditions and winds.

Most are extinguished or under control, but northern California’s wine country has been hit hard. At least 15 people have been killed as the fires rage through Sonoma County.
