    People Are Nervous And Excited About Netflix's Selena Quintanilla Series

    Let the cumbia countdown begin.

    Selena Quintanilla is an icon. A legend. A one-of-a-kind talent the likes of which we haven’t seen again since she was tragically shot and killed over 20 years ago.

    The streaming service giant said they developed the series with the Quintanilla family, who will serve as executive producers.

    People are super excited, but a little nervous at the same time.

    @seewhatsnext @netflix @SelenaLaLeyenda @selena_netflix This is going to be interesting.

    Especially when it comes to the casting.

    @seewhatsnext @netflix @SelenaLaLeyenda @selena_netflix Huh, so giving the fact that Netflix always changes the characters ethnicity because...reasons, im pretty sure Emma Stone is going to play Selena

    @seewhatsnext @SelenaLaLeyenda @selena_netflix Is Scarlett Johansson going to play her too?

    @seewhatsnext @SelenaLaLeyenda @selena_netflix @MaureenCarmelle i'm here for this but also very nervous

    This tweet sums it up quite well.

    @seewhatsnext @SelenaLaLeyenda @selena_netflix I love that her legacy continues.. but this is risky. Pero I’m still gonna watch porque me siento muy excited!

    There’s still no word on when exactly we can binge-watch the whole thing. Also, mums the word on who will be playing the Queen of Tex-Mex.
