Selena: The Series is returning for part 2 on May 14. After the show premiered in December on Netflix, it captivated over 25 million viewers.
Following the life of Selena Quintanilla as she bursts into the Tejano music scene in the ‘80s, her dream was to make music that celebrated both her Latin roots and her Mexican-American upbringing. She ultimately brought these two worlds together, leaving behind a timeless legacy that still resonates with generations of fans around the world.
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.
Selena solidified her spot as a legend of music with her music skyrocketing over 260% during the launch of Selena: The Series on Spotify. The day before the series’ release, fans also broke the Guinness World Record for the largest number of videos of people lip-syncing to the same song (“Como La Flor,” by Selena y los Dinos) uploaded to TikTok in one hour, as part of the #TodosComoLaFlor challenge. Selena will also be receiving the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award this year
