Selena: The Series is almost here! On Tuesday, Netflix announced that the two-part limited series starring Christian Serratos as Selena Quintanilla will premiere on Dec. 4.
In addition to the date announcement, the streaming platform shared the first trailer for the project, which was first announced in 2018.
In the black-and-white clip, Serratos’ Selena is seen performing onstage, as her father, Abraham (Ricardo Chavira), offers advice in a voice over.
“If you keep practicing, pretty soon it’s all gonna pay off. Just watch,” he says. “And when I see you on that stage, I still see the 6-year-old girl singing in our backyard.”
