“It would have been an honor for me to do seasons three, four and five, but it didn’t happen. It was (Netflix’s decision).

The first season of Rebelde aired in January 2022, with the second season already recorded. Released in the same year, the sequel was not publicized and the songs were never released on digital platforms either, because the contract with Sony Music it was already over.
