Selena Gomez Returning To Television In All-New Series
Selena Gomez is returning to television once again, where her entire career started on the hit Disney show Wizards of Waverly Place. TV Line shared the news that a new show called 13 Reasons Why will be coming straight to Netflix, and this is a series that you do not want to miss.
Selena has spent the last few years focusing on her music, but she never stopped loving acting and will be going back to her roots once again. It will actually star Selena Gomez and is based on the 2007 young adult novel by Jay Asher. Gomez won’t just be starring in the show, though. Actually, Gomez is executive-producing the project, along with mom Mandy Teefey, Kristel Laiblin, and Anonymous Content. This is going to be an amazing show, but there is no actual date of when it will be coming out yet.
Variety shared the details of this new Selena Gomez show and exactly what will happen. The show is all about Hannah Baker, who committed suicide. A box of cassette tapes that she recorded are sent to her crush, Clay, by another student after she dies. These tapes are then passed from one student to another, and they explain the 13 reasons why she killed herself. The show was almost turned into a movie, but instead it will now be a 13-episode miniseries on Netflix that stars Selena Gomez. She actually read the book and then realized it had the potential to become more than just a book. She actually brought the book to Anonymous Content for a screen adaptation, and they loved the idea. Now Netflix has joined Gomez in this new show.
This book has been a huge success. 13 Reasons Why is printed in 35 languages and has been on the New York Times bestseller list for eight years straight. This book helps to raise awareness about suicide and also bullying. Selena Gomez is standing behind an amazing project that will end up spreading the word about a topic that really does need some focus.
This news comes not long after Hollywood Life tried to say that Selena Gomez was planning to completely quit music and move on to a simpler life. Gossip Cop revealed that this was not true at all, and Selena will continue to make music. Of course, Gomez may have to take a small break to work on her new television show, but don’t expect her to stop making music.
A source close to Selena Gomez called this claim “absurd.” There is no way that Selena will be quitting music for a quieter life like they tried to claim. The original report said that Revival would be her last album, but that is not the case. You never know what she will come up with next, but now Selena Gomez is returning to television, and she will continue to make music. Fans can’t wait to hear from Selena herself about the details on her new show and when filming will start.
Everyone is glad to hear the news that Selena Gomez will continue to make music as well. Gomez has had huge success in the music industry, and she just announced new tour dates. It looks like she is obviously a huge star with her singing and acting abilities, as well as her amazing looks, but now she is adding producer to the mix. Selena will continue to surprise her fans with new music and shows in the future.
Do you plan to watch Selena Gomez in 13 Reasons Why? This is just another new series by Netflix. They have recently been adding a lot of original shows, including Longmire and the new show they are working on called Fuller House.
