What Is the Plot of Selena: The Series?
The 20-episode biographical drama centres around one of the most influential Latin artists ever, depicting Selena's rise to stardom before she turned 20, releasing breakthrough studio albums, climbing the charts with hit singles—but tragically dying before her 24th birthday.
Selena: The Series delves into the pop star's struggle with reconciling her Mexican and American identities as she starts to earn acclaim in the music industry. At the same time, she's actively trying to keep her relationship with Chris Pérez—the guitarist who ends up marrying—a secret to keep her father from firing him.
And for true crime fans who remember Selena's fate, the latter part of the series introduces Yolanda Saldívar, the woman who claims to be Selena's biggest devotee and offers to run her fan club for free. And as we know, Yolanda becomes the culprit behind Selena's tragic murder.
Produced by Selena's older sister, Suzette, she stresses that the film isn't a documentary. Taking to Instagram, she wrote: "This series is not the movie [starring Jennifer Lopez], it's more," Suzette wrote. "It's all about our life and the grind to get there when it seemed unattainable."
