Selena: The Series Cast Compared to the Real-Life Counterparts

Selena Quintanilla‘s life and legacy proceed to be celebrated.

It’s exhausting to imagine it has been 25 years for the reason that world misplaced an icon after she was unexpectedly murdered by Yolanda Saldivar, her Fan Club president, on March 31, 1995 in Corpus Christi, Texas.

But regardless of the tragedy, Selena has continued to affect and affect the music, style and wonder trade. Case in level? There have been two (wildly profitable) make-up collections by MAC Cosmetics in her honor. Plus, many retailers now carry clothes together with her picture embossed on t-shirts, jackets, hoodies, equipment and extra.

And now, Netflix has launched the extremely anticipated tv present based mostly on her and her household’s life—Selena: The Series. Although there have been combined opinions, Suzette Quintanilla, defined the significance of the present.

“I’m grateful for this huge platform we have been given on Netflix,” Selena’s sister shared earlier this week on Instagram. “This type of opportunity DOES NOT HAPPEN TO LATINOS often… okay hardly ever if you really wanna know! Not one season… but 2 seasons about a mexican american family from Texas who worked their asses off and NEVER gave up.”
