Netflix released the official trailer for the highly-anticipated series about late bicultural icon Selena on Monday.
The trailer for Selena: The Series features Walking Dead actress Christian Serratos portraying Selena with scenes from the first installment of the two-part series set to debut on Dec. 4. The trailer also gives a look at nine-year-old rising star Madison Taylor Baez as a young Selena in the biographical drama.
The trailer was shared by the Selena official Facebook page on Monday with the caption, “Before she became the Queen of Tejano Music, Selena Quintanilla was a young girl from Texas with big dreams and an even bigger voice. Selena: The Series explores her journey from singing small gigs to becoming the most successful female Latin artist of all time — and the years of hard work and sacrifice the Quintanilla family navigated together.”
Selena: The Series is a coming-of-age story following Selena as her dreams come true and all the heart-wrenching and life-changing choices she and her family have to make as they navigate success, family, and music.
The series comes from Campanario Entertainment and is executive produced by Jaime Dávila, Rico Martinez, Suzette Quintanilla, Simran A. Singh, and Moisés Zamora.
“Selena will always have a lasting place in music history and we feel great responsibility to do justice to her memory,” Selena’s sister Suzette Quintanilla said about the series. “With this series, viewers will finally get the full history of Selena, our family, and the impact she has had on all of our lives. We are excited to partner with Campanario and Netflix to give fans a never-before-seen glimpse at our story and highlight why Selena will remain a legend for generations to come.”
