On Sunday, Mexican actor Diego Boneta showed off a year’s worth of preparation (and growing out a totally rad ’80s mullet) for his role as Luis Miguel in the new series, “Luis Miguel La Serie,” broadcasted by Telemundo and streamed by Netflix in Latin America.
Luis Miguel fans could not contain their excitement as the show inched closer and closer to its debut.
I'm so excited to see soon #LuisMiguelLaSerie which is on #Telemundo and #Netflix. #LuisMiguel has always been my #idol growing up. I rarely watch TV these days because of work and school but this is a must see for me tonight.

It was a bonding moment that transcended generations.

@AnaMilan30 tweeted, “My mom and I wanted to watch Netflix’s “Luis Miguel La Serie” but for different reason:
– Her: She loves Luis Miguel.
– Me: @ElJuanpaZurita”
And people were not about to miss it.
Me encantó la organización de los mexicanos, todos puntuales a las 8 para ver el debate y a las 10 en chinga todos en Netflix para ver a Luis Miguel.

“I loved how organized the Mexicans were,” @gisellenaile tweeted. “They were all punctual to see the (presidential) debate at 8 and at 10 everyone was on Netflix to watch Luis Miguel.”
Some fans in Latin America were pretty bummed to learn they don’t get to binge watch the entire series on Netflix.
The Luis Miguel series on Netflix is only one episode per week. Wtf! I was trying to binge watch.

However, at least they get to watch the show, unlike people anywhere else in the world.
@Netflix_CA why aren't you broadcasting Luis Miguel the Series in Netflix Canada??? FFS
You gotta do something!

But they are definitely trying to get Netflix to bring the show to a broader audience.
@NetflixUK are you gonna make Luis Miguel – The series available in the UK? ??

Seems like fans around the world wants a taste of the “Luis Miguel La Serie” life.
El Sol de Mexico made a special cameo appearance watching himself sing in the series.
The encounter could create a time paradox, the results of which could cause a chain reaction that would unravel the very fabric of the space time continuum, and destroy the entire universe!#LuisMiguelLaSerie pic.twitter.com/06miWl4BsN

There is some confusion and disappointment with the accent used in the show.
Me meo. Una serie sobre Luis Miguel… Con acento andaluz… No mola… Jajaja
