‘Selena: The Series’: What Do We Know About The Second Part Of The Netflix Series


Selena Quintanilla became an icon of Latin music in the 90s, and now it is time for a new generation to know her story. ‘ Selena: The series ‘, created by Moisés Zamora and starring Christian Serratos (Rosita in ‘ The Walking Dead ‘) tells the life of the singer, from a childhood in which she began to be part of the family band started by her father up to its international fame.

If you have already devoured the episodes available on Netflix since December 4, you will have realized that the story does not go to the end. And it is that there is still the hardest part of its history.

‘Selena: The Series’: What Will The Second Part Tell?

As we said, the first part of the series took us from the beginnings of Selena Quintanilla to her tremendous success in the United States and Mexico, when she was still a teenager. The first part ends exactly at the moment in which her father Abraham ( Ricardo Chavira ) throws her boyfriend from the band, who was the band’s guitarist with his family, breaking the young singer’s heart. The story ends there, but if we follow the actual events, we can know what to expect from the sequel.

We do not want to do too many ‘historical spoilers’ (after all, many new viewers surely do not know the whole story of the artist yet, and perhaps prefer to continue ‘virgins’ until the continuation arrives), but there is an event that we cannot ignore: his murder. It was on March 31, 1995, when Selena was shot several times in a Corpus Christi motel, in Texas, by the president of her fan club, Yolanda Saldívar, who also worked in a store that was owned by the family. The singer was 23 when she died. The reasons? Economic irregularities with the business, personal disagreements … We will see what version the Netflix series gives.

‘Selena: The Series’: Will The Same Cast Continue?

Everything points to yes, for two simple reasons. The first, that the change between the younger and older versions of the protagonists has already occurred in this first part when Selena goes from a girl (played by Madison Taylor Baez ) to a teenager (Serratos). The second, because, as we pointed out, the second installment of episodes will cover much less time-space than the first, only the last years of the singer before her death, so we do not believe that there will be any change in the cast. That means that Christian Serratos will continue to be Selena along with the rest of the cast.

‘Selena: The Series’: Release Date

At the moment only this first part has been released, but we hope that the second does not do much to beg. The filming of these new episodes that continue with the singer’s story ended on December 4, and everything indicates that there will be a total of ten, completing the series with almost twenty chapters. There is still no release date confirmed by Netflix, but we do not believe that they will allow too much time between both parties, especially if they are already in the post-production process.
