Selena Quintanilla became a Latin music icon in the 1990s, and now it’s time for the new generation to discover her story. “Selena: The Series”, written by Moisés Zamora and starring Christian Serratos, tells the singer’s life from childhood that she began to be part of the family society started by her father. For its international fame.
If you’ve already missed the episodes available on Netflix since December 4, you’ll realize that the story never ends. And that is still the hardest part of its history.
Selina: Series: Part Two What would you say?
As we have said, we have been in the U.S. since the beginning of Selena Quintanilla. And let’s take the first part of the series until her big success in Mexico when she was still a teenager. The first part ends with the moment her father Abraham (Ricardo Chevra) breaks her singer’s heart and throws her boyfriend out of the band with her family, the guitarist of the band. The story ends there, but if we follow the actual events, we can tell what to expect from the sequel.
We don’t want to do a lot of “historical spoilers” (after all, many new viewers certainly don’t know the full story of the artist yet, and may choose to continue “virgins” until continuity), but there’s one phenomenon we can’t ignore: His murder. It was March 31, 1995, when Selena was repeatedly shot at the Corpus Christi Hotel in Texas by the president of her fan club, Yolanda Saldivar, who also worked in a family-owned store. She was 23 when the singer died. Reasons? Economic breaches with work, personal disputes … we’ll see the release that Netflix brings to the series.
Selina: The Series: Will the cast continue itself?
Everything points to yes, for two simple reasons. First, the change between the younger and older versions of the characters actually happened in this first installment, as Selena went from a girl (played by Madison Taylor Base) to a teenager (Stratos). Second, because as we suggested, the second episode will cover much less time than just the singer’s last years before his death, so we don’t think there will be any change in the cast. . This means that Christian Saratos will still be Selena with the rest of the cast.
In December 2020, only the first part was released, but the second part will not be more to beg. The shooting of this new episode, which continues with the singer’s story, ended on December 4 and will be shown on Netflix next Friday, May 14.
