Don’t Forget: There’s a Selena TV Show Coming This December
‘Selena: The Series’ will show in two parts and is produced by the late singer’s family, alongside Netflix
Over twenty years after the release of the 1997 film Selena starring Jennifer Lopez, Netflix announced in December 2018 that it was producing a scripted series based on the life of the late Tejano singer. Selena: The Series was developed by Netflix alongside the Quintanilla family, who will be executive producing the show.
The two-part series will tell the coming-of-age story of the Queen of Tejano music, known for popularizing songs like “Dreaming of You” and “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom.” The series will chronicle her life, from her childhood to her rise to fame, “as she and her family make tough choices to hold on to love and music.”
After finding a lead actress in Christian Serratos in August 2019, production on the series remained largely quiet, until this week. “Every legend begins with a dream,” teased the streaming giant across social media, along with a release date and a new teaser.
