SAN ANTONIO — A series on the life of Tejano music legend Selena Quintanilla finally has a release date. 

'Selena: The Series' starring Christian Serratos as the late singer will be released on Netflix on December 4, 2020. 

Along with a release date, fans were treated to a trailer on the official Instagram page for the series. The caption for the post reads, 'Every legend begins with a dream.'

The trailer features Selena (Serratos) dressed in one of the singer's iconic outfits (It's a bustier!!!) approaching a stage and performing 'Como La Flor' to a large crowd. The trailer also includes a voiceover of a conversation between Selena (Serratos) and her dad Abraham Quintanilla Jr. (played by native Texan Ricardo Chavira) as they discuss her dreams. 

According to a first look teaser from Netflix back in 2019, the show will be "a coming of age story chronicling the iconic singer's rise."
