Subscribers are eagerly awaiting Part 2, after an amazing introduction about Selena Quintanilla's life and career in Part 1. Netflix has yet to reveal the release date of Selena: The Series Part 2, but we’ll be keeping track of everything related to the series including, what to expect, trailers, cast news, and the Netflix release date.
Selena: The Series is a Netflix Original biographical-musical drama series created by Moisés Zamora and directed by Hiromi Kamata. Based on the life of Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla, the series was approved by the Quintanilla family and has the late musician’s sister, Suzette Quintanilla serving as an executive producer on the series.
Netflix has released its 2-minute statistics for the series. According to reports, it was watched by 25 million people worldwide. About half of them are from the United States. Netflix also mentions an increase in Selena searches on Google Trends.
Netflix has not yet revealed the date of the sequel to Selena: The Series. Given that filming has wrapped up for part 2 already, we originally predicted the potential for a Summer 2021 release date and in January 2021, that’s exactly what was confirmed.
Part 2: Selena will be available worldwide on Netflix starting May 14, 2021.
We may also see a trailer released at this time due to the fact that Selena Day is celebrated on April 16.
Part 1 of the Original was about Selena's early years and her rapid rise to prominence in Tejano music.
Below, we’ll speculate on what we think might happen in part 2 and beyond but here’s the official logline for season 2:
“Now on the brink of stardom, Selena Orentanilla’s journey through the Tejano music world continues. Learning how to handle her newfound success, Selena struggles to balance, family, love, and a burgeoning career. Part 2 of Selena: The Series chronicles the years of hard work antl sacrifice the Quinfanilla family navigate together as she becomes the most successful female Latin artist of all time.”
Here’s what we could specifically see in part 2:
Despite their secret romance, it wasn’t long before other members of the band, and ultimately Selena’s father, Abraham, discovered that Selena was in a relationship with the band’s lead guitarist Chris Pérez. Abraham fired Chris immediately after learning of the relationship. Abraham divorced Chris despite protests by his daughter and family members.
The pair eventually married despite the fact that her father didn't like Chris. In the next season, we’ll see Selena and Chris elope. It’s well documented that Abraham did not receive the news well, but he eventually came round to his daughter’s decision to marry the man she loved.
Yolanda Saldivar was briefly seen in Part 1. But we expect to see her again in Part 2.
As Selena’s popularity grew, so did the influence of Yolanda. After Selena launched her clothing line, Yolanda became president of the Selena fan group.
Yolanda and Selena had become friends over the Tejano-star’s career, which made it all the more shocking for her when it was revealed that Yolanda had been embezzling money from the fan club and Selena’s boutique.
In the wake of discovering Yolanda’s antics, she was subsequently fired. Selena tried to get financial records from the company, but she was still able to access them. This led to her being fired.
It’s no secret to anyone that is watching Selena: The Series that the young Tejano star was tragically murdered at the age of 23. Yolanda Saldivar murdered her, shattering the Latin American community. Her death was deeply felt by her thousands of fans around the globe.
Quintanilla's family had an open casket to honor their daughter. This allowed friends and relatives to grieve her death. Tens of thousands traveled thousands of miles just to offer their condolences. It was confirmed that 78,000 people signed the book of condolences.
The Series' majority of cast members will reprise their roles in Selena: The Series.
Natasha Perez was previously a guest actor as Yolanda Saltdivar, but she can expect to play a supporting or recurring role in Selena: The Series: Part 2.
Official Production Status: After-Production. (Last Updated 07/12/2020).
