Before there was Selena Gomez, there was Selena Quintanilla-Perez.

The Latin-American singer was recognized as the Queen of Tejano music during her time.

Her life was documented in the 1997 film Selena which starred Jennifer Lopez and showed the singer’s rise to fame — as well as her tragic death at the hands of her fan club president.

Selena’s story is now set to be introduced to new audiences, courtesy of Netflix.

The streaming service has commissioned a scripted series about the late Grammy winner’s life that will be written by Moisés Zamora of Star and executively produced by Selena’s parents, amongst others.

Selena: The Series will consist of 2 parts and is predicted to follow a specific period in the artist’s life — most likely that in which she comes of age.
