Luis Miguel: The Series (Spanish: Luis Miguel: La serie) is a Spanish-language American biographical television series produced by Gato Grande Productions along to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios for Netflix and Telemundo.[2][3] It is an authorized version on the life of the Mexican singer Luis Miguel.[4] It stars Diego Boneta as the titular character.[5][6] Filming began on November 16, 2017.[7]

On 22 April 2018, Karla Gonzales, series showrunner, confirmed that the show has been renewed for a second season.[8][9] On 7 January 2020, it was confirmed that the shooting of the second season would begin in February 2020 and that the season is scheduled to be released in the same year.[10]


Before being known as Luis Miguel, Micky, as his family called him, finds a great satisfaction, love, and security alongside his beloved mother Marcela (Anna Favella) and his younger brother Alex (Juanpa Zurita). A singer of natural talent, he begins gaining recognition and popularity until he turns 11, when his father, Luis Rey (Óscar Jaenada), obsessively gives himself the task of turning his son into the superstar that he himself did not manage to be. As Micky grows and becomes a pop star of the time, with the name of Luis Miguel (Diego Boneta), problems associated with fame and protecting his private life and his great loves begin. While the world falls in love with the masculine image of a tanned young man with a beautiful smile and fascinating lifestyle in Acapulco, which was the hallmark of his career, what lies behind this reality is how fame and fortune can impact a family.
