Netflix has revealed a teaser and set a new premiere date for Selena The Series Part 2. The final installment of the two-part series, starring Christian Serratos as iconic singer Selena Quintanilla, will premiere on May 4.
The second part was originally scheduled for May 14, which was announced in January this year. Now, it will arrive ten days early than previously announced.
Part 2 of Selena: The Series chronicles the years of hard work and sacrifice the Quintanilla family navigate together as she becomes the most successful female Latin artist of all time. It will also follow her life up to her untimely and tragic death, when she was fatally shot in 1995, at age 23, by the former president of her fan club. Starring Christian Serratos as iconic singer Selena Quintanilla, the show returns to conclude the story of the queen of Tejano music.
Earlier, Netflix announced that 25 million households around the world sang “Como la flor” along with part one in the first four weeks after it premiered in December. The series reached the Top 10 list in 23 countries - including the U.S., Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, and Peru - and spent 26 consecutive days on the Top 10 list in Mexico. Half of the fans came from the U.S., where it spent its first week in the #1 spot on the Top 10 list.
Also, the Selena excitement extended far beyond Netflix. On Spotify, her music streams skyrocketed 260% during the launch of Selena: The Series. Selena’s listeners also increased by 90% during the same period, reaching 5 million monthly listeners.
