Selena: The Series Trailer Shows Star’s Rise To Fame

The trailer for Selena: The Series shows the pop star’s rise to fame. In 2018, Netflix first¬†announced a series was in the works about the life of the¬†late Tejano singer Selena¬†Quintanilla. The two-part biographical series will follow Selena from her childhood in Texas to the rise of her career as¬†the most successful¬†female Latin artist¬†of all time. Netflix shared a black-and-white teaser trailer in early October, announcing Part One of the series will premiere December 4.

On Monday, Netflix dropped the full¬†trailer ahead of the December release¬†date. The trailer for Selena: The Series shows the singer’s path from her humble beginnings to her rise to fame. Beginning with¬†Selena in her iconic white pants walking to a dark¬†stage before flashing back¬†to her father,¬†Abraham¬†Quintanilla,¬†watching a young Selena singing in their yard. The trailer features¬†a montage of Selena transitioning into a¬†teenager on her journey to becoming a pop star.

Christian Serratos, best known for playing Rosita on AMC’s The Walking Dead, stars as Selena. The series also stars¬†Gabriel Chavarria as Abraham,¬†Ricardo Chavira as¬†A.B.,¬†Noemi Gonzalez as Suzie, Seidy Lopez as Selena’s mother Marcella, and Madison Taylor Baez as Young Selena.

Selena: The Series comes almost 24 years after the critically acclaimed 1997 biopic film Selena, starring Jennifer Lopez. It’s not clear yet if the series will also cover Selena’s murder¬†at the age of 23 by her fan club president as the film did. Judging from the trailer, the first part of the series will likely focus a lot on Selena’s childhood into her teenage years.
