The two-part series won't focus specifically on the singer's tragic murder, but rather, it will follow Selena, "as her dreams come true and all the heart-wrenching and life-changing choices she and her family have to make as they navigate success, family, and music". It shows "Selena" prepping for her role by reading the script, wearing her iconic purple bellbottom jumpsuit, and, of course, applying her red lipstick.
Deadline is reporting that Netflix also confirmed that San Antonio native and former "Desperate Housewives" star Ricardo Antonio Chavira will co-star, along with actor Gabriel Chavarria of "The Purge". It has also been revealed that Noemi Gonzalez ("The Young and the Restless") will play Selena's sister and best friend Suzette Quintanilla.
If you've already watched Selena's last concert on Amazon Prime and you've purchased your HBO Max account to stream Jennifer Lopez's should-have-been Oscar-nominated turn as the Tejano singer, just wait because there's more coming your way.

"Selena is an inspirational figure who's transcended generations", said Jaime Davila, president of the production company Campanario Entertainment.
The late singer Selena is the subject of a forthcoming Netflix series.
The story is being split into two parts, with the first consisting of six hour-long episodes that is set to debut in 2020. "We're sure fans everywhere will be captivated yet again by Selena's incredible life". And as you could see in the teaser, a young Selena will be portrayed by Madison Taylor Baez.
