Netflix premiered Selena last Friday and quickly ranked among the most-watched series worldwide. Despite the audience’s success, it received criticism about its plot and was even described as boring. The first nine episodes delve into the history of the Quintanilla family and the second season will be more dramatic. When it premieres?

Production was affected by the coronavirus pandemic and after filming began in October 2019, it had to stop due to the health contingency. That is why it was decided to divide the series into two parts and release the ready chapters. The works were then renewed and a total of 20 were completed.

Season 2 was shot in November 2020 and will cover the most tragic side of Selena’s life. In turn, it will show the most empowered, influential singer and her transformation into a popular star of the time. “We’re going to see a lot more of the icon,” star Christian Serratos told The Times.

The series ends in 1990 when the queen of Tex-Mex released her second album and began to see her career begin to shine. Episode 9 also includes Yolanda Saldívar’s first appearance, when she joins the band to manage the fan club. The remaining 11 chapters will tell of the conflict with his murderer and the subsequent murder.

When does the second season of Selena: The Series premiere?

With filming fully completed, Season 2 is in post-production and is scheduled for the first half of 2021. Although there is no official confirmation yet, there is the idea of releasing it on April 16, 2021 on the 50th anniversary of Selena’s birth.
