One of the titles of the new series released on Netflix that has captured the most attention is Selena: The Series. The first season can be seen on the Netflix platform on December 4th.
Selena Quintanilla is one of America’s most famous Hispanic people. For many Spanish speakers, the young singer was a reference. Selena made the Latino community visible in the Anglo-Saxon country, becoming the queen of the Tex-Mex genre, a genre that combines popular Mexican beats with Texan beats.
Who was Selena Quintanilla?
The title of “referent” was rightly deserved. The young Mexican of Mexican origin has managed to sell up to 70 million records worldwide, a figure that only two other Hispanic women have exceeded: Gloria Estefan and Shakira.
Also, in the 90s, she was named by Billboard magazine as the most influential Latin artist in the country and, within a few years, she obtained the same title but without the label “Latina”: Selena was the greatest all-time female artist, according to the same magazine’s headlines in 2020.
What is Selena: The Series about?
Despite all her professional success, the singer’s life has not been easy. In fact, her life was much shorter than expected: Selena was murdered at 23.
The series will follow the same narrative thread as the film Jennifer López played in 1997. In other words, we will see the beginnings of his career, when all doors are closed to him, and we will understand how he came to sell until 70 million records years later.
It is not known if the series will come close to the murder of the young woman or if it is a subject that it will prefer to ignore. What we do know is that the show will bring us a lot closer to the person that Selena Quintanilla was.
Who will play the role of Selena in the series?
Christian Serratos is the actress who will be in charge of representing Selena in the series. The American actress of Italian-Mexican descent is known for her appearance in The Walking Dead (from season four) playing Rosita Espinosa.
In the series, we will also see Julio Macías, Jesse Posey or Noemi González play.
Where can I watch Selena: The Series?
As we stated above, the series will be available on Netflix. To see Selena, you will need to have a paid subscription on Netflix.
Netflix offers different prices depending on the type of plan you choose:
- Basic: $ 7.99
- Standard: $ 11.99
- Premium: $ 15.99
The fundamental difference is related to the number of simultaneous screens that the account can use: one, two or up to four if you choose the premium version. If you choose the more expensive version, you can share the account with three other people to pay only a quarter of its total price.
In addition, the standard and premium versions have better reproduction qualities, they should be taken into account when choosing your price.
