Get excited, Selenas!

On Friday, Netflix announced that Selena: The Series Part 2 will arrive on the streaming service on May 14. Starring Christian Serratos (The Walking Dead ) as iconic singer Selena Quintanilla, the show returns to conclude the story of the queen of Tejano music. The second part will follow her life up to her untimely and tragic death, when she was fatally shot in 1995, at age 23, by the former president of her fan club.

Part One of the series took viewers inside the singer's family life and growing up as part of a Mexican-American family, including living between Spanish and English language worlds. Part Two sees the singer learning how to handle her newfound success, while balancing family, love, and a burgeoning career, and chronicles the years of hard work and sacrifice the Quintanilla family navigate together as Selena becomes the most successful female Latin artist of all time.

Selena: The Series also stars Gabriel Chavarria as A.B. Quintanilla, Juan Martinez as Young A.B., Ricardo Chavira as Abraham Quintanilla, Brandol Ruiz as Young Abraham, Noemi Gonzalez as Suzette Quintanilla, Daniela Estrada as Young Suzette, Seidy López as Marcella Quintanilla, and Aneasa Yacoub as Young Marcella.

It's a big year for the late superstar, as she's set to receive the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in March.
