A First Look At Netflix’s New Show, ‘Selena: The Series’

Netflix has officially given us our first look at its upcoming production, Selena: The Series, starring Christian Serratos!

The tweet introducing Serratos as Selena has already racked up more than 13,000 likes since being posted this morning. On top of that, the official cast was also disclosed.

In addition to officially confirming Serratos in the lead role, Netflix announced other key cast members, including Richard Chavira (Desperate Housewives), as Selena's father, Abraham; Gabriel Chavarria (War for the Planet of the Apes) as Selena's eldest brother and band's music producer; Noemi Gonzalez (East Los High) as Suzette, Selena's sister and best friend; and Seidy Lopez (Training Day) as Marcella, Selena's mother.

The one-minute trailer features cuts of Serratos fully in character while reading script pages, practicing her dance moves in that unforgettable purple jumpsuit, and touching up her signature red lipstick before eventually making her way over to the stage. And as you could see in the teaser, a young Selena will be portrayed by Madison Taylor Baez. The series will consist of six one-hour episodes, and premieres in 2020.


It's time for Selena to "bidi bidi bom bom" her way back into our hearts. It was her English-language album that she was recording the same month of her murder, and it was released posthumously.

Rejoice, Selena fans: The beloved queen of Tejano music is coming to Netflix.

Selena: The Series will focus on Selena's Mexican-American family and how the entertainer "transcended categories and borders to become a global star".

The late singer Selena is the subject of a forthcoming Netflix series. "We're sure fans everywhere will be captivated yet again by Selena's incredible life". This series might be just another way to honor La Reina.
