WHAT HAPPENS IN SEASON 2 OF “SELENA: THE SERIES”?
The first season of ” Selena: The Series ” ended with composing the song “Como la Flor”, with Suzette contacting Yolanda Saldivar, and with Abraham firing the band’s guitarist after finding out he was having an affair with his daughter.
Therefore, the second part will focus on the forbidden love of Selena and Chris, their marriage, and the return of the guitarist to the band. Likewise, Yolanda Saldívar, the woman who killed the popular singer in 1995, will come into her life.
The second season won’t focus on Selena’s death because it’s a “celebration of Selena’s life and not her death,” Natasha Pérez, who plays Yolanda, told Entertainment Weekly.
“The series is not about his death. Yolanda is here to add tension to what is going on, but what is happening is so beautiful because she is an artist who finds herself, an emerging artist, and who finds her place within her family and society. . They were all very careful with how everything was run. Sadly, Yolanda is part of Selena’s tragic story. But the beauty of it all is how his legacy lives on to this day through his music, his art, and even his entire life. Thanks to her, today we can have this conversation and have a show about a Latina, with and written by Latinos. It’s a beautiful thing ”.
“The first part was stressful because there were fewer sequences to base my performance on. But at the same time, he was more relaxed, because he had more freedom. People don’t know much about this version of Selena, ”the 30-year-old actress said in a conversation with OprahMag.
However, “in our second part, we will see a lot more of the icon. I had a lot more to base my performance on, but it was stressful because people knew Selena so well. There was additional pressure, ”added Serratos.
