The Latest ‘Game Of Thrones’ Fan Theory Has Mariah Carey At Its Center And Fans Can’t Deal

Two years ago when Game Of Thrones was featuring its Season 7 premiere and fans were watching Arya Stark make her way to the Riverlands with bated breath, fans nearly lost their cool when  Ed Sheeran made an appearance. Some were thrilled, some threw Joffrey- style tantrums. In either case, the appearance left quite a few fans divided. However, when it comes to an appearance by one true Afro-Latina queen, the world has found common ground.

Flashing her love for the big HBO series, Carey dropped a major fanfic spoiler that Twitter could just not handle.

In a post with a caption that read “Major Game of Thrones spoilers….” Carey shared a photo of herself on the Iron Throne and holy hell did it cause a stir.

Fans had all kinds of fun with the post but mostly replies to it were begging for this to come to fruition.

Because let’s be real having “I Don’t Know Her” Carey on the Iron Throne at the end is the ideal.

Of course with all of her star power, Carey’s tweet went viral pretty quickly with nearly 20K retweets and over 76K likes.

And of course, the replies brought up all of Carey’s best GOT-like moments that were absolutely savage.

Of course with Mariah Carey now part of our fantasy casting, we couldn’t help but pull for a little more Latinos in the show.

GOT is STARVED for Latino representation, this is why we decided to reimagine this epic saga with an all-Latino cast. If you think you can come up with better GoT Latino casting choices let us know in the comment section below.

Daenerys Targaryen: Tessa Thompson

Who better to play the role of Daenery than the badass Tessa Thompson. We already know that she is able to rock out as a superhero like she did in “Thor: Ragnarok.”

Jon Snow: Diego Boneta

Mexican actor, Diego Boneta, not only has some resemblance to Jon Snow but he’s also been trained in sword fighting. He did play the role of a Jewish rebel in the miniseries “The Dovekeeper.”

Sansa Stark: Bella Thorne

What better redheaded Latina than Bella, who looks more like a Season 7 Sansa. Definitely less childlike and more like a woman ready to take charge of her kingdom.

Cersei Lannister: Shakira

Blonde wavy hair, beautiful and known all around the land.. Those are all things the Colombian superstar has in common with the Queen Cersei.

Khal Drogo: Marlon Teixeira

There’s no denying it, Brazilian model Marlon Teixeira looks like Khal’s baby [hotter] brother. All you need to do is add some beard hair extensions and some heavy smokey eye makeup and you have an instant Dothraki.

Jamie Lannister: William Levy

What about Cuban actor William Levy? Not only is he tall, blonde and well-built but he and Shakira would make a great couple… can you imagine how beautiful the “Baratheon“ kids would look?

Lord Varys: Juan Gabriel

Flashy outfits? Loving personality? There’s no question about it, Juan Gabriel would be the perfect choice to play the role of Lord Varys. Obviously he is dead, however, they do have holograms nowadays so, there you go.

Arya Stark: Selena Gomez

The short-haired brunette could easily become the youngest of the Stark clan. Maybe this could be Selena’s crossover to more dramatic roles on TV. Plus, she’d be able to contribute to the soundtrack.

Grey Worm: Bruno Mars

You might be asking why are we pairing these two Afro-Caribbeans musicians but have you noticed how much they look alike? It’s like they’re actually related to one another.

Missandei: Nathalie Emmanuel

Who better to play the role Missandei than the OG Missandei actress Nathalie Emmanuel who is also Dominican???

Catelyn Stark: Salma Hayek

Who better to play the role of the Fierce Lady of Winterfell, who will do whatever it takes to protect her kin, than Mexican beauty Salma Hayek. Coincidentally, she has already played the part of a medieval Noblewoman in “Tale of Tales.”

Margaery Tyrell: Alexis Bledel

When you need a Latina with big blue eyes and a porcelain-like complexion, just like Margeary, it has to be Alexis Bledel.

Joffrey Baratheon: Frankie Muniz

There’s probably no actor that looks more like Joffrey Baratheon than “Malcolm In The Middle” star, Frankie Muniz. As such, he would make the perfect match to play this brat.

Ellaria Sand: Eva Mendes

These beauties might not be twins but they sure have the same goddess-like poise needed for the role of strong and beautiful Ellaria Sand.

Lady Olenna Tyrell: Ivonne Coll

Remember Jane’s abuelita from Jane The Virgin? Well, we think she would make a great (maybe a bit younger) version of bad**s Lady Olena.

Bran Stark: Tyler Alvarez

They may not be up at the beginning of the list but Isaac and Tyler are probably one of the pairs who have the strongest resemblance. Honestly, it’s hard to tell them apart.

Melisandre: Camille Belle

The Indie star, Camilla Belle and her piercing eyes are definitely the perfect choice for the all-powerful Red Woman. Just look at how well she would be able to pull the look off.

Hodor: Luis Guzman

Maybe Hodor and Guzman don’t have the same height but they sure can pull that scruffy medieval look. It also helps that everyone loves Guzman.

Petyr Baelish: Raul Esparza

Some might not know who this Littlefinger look-alike is but if you’re a fan of “Law & Order: SVU” then surely you’ll notice that Esparza is none other than ADA Rafael Barba.

Theon Greyjoy: Diego Luna

The Mexican actor may not be a dirty blonde with super pale skin but he sure would make a great Theon.

America Ferrera’s “Superstore” Is Going To Get A Spanish-Language Adaptation In A Win For Inclusion

America Ferrera’s “Superstore” Is Going To Get A Spanish-Language Adaptation In A Win For Inclusion

Fans of the hit NBC comedy Superstore may have been disappointed when it was announced that the series would be cancelled after its sixth season, but there’s good news! The series is going to get a Spanish-language version for international audiences and it will be part of a major expansion for the series. 

The show was well-known for tackling important social issues, particularly around immigration. And a Spanish-language adaptation, particularly one produced out of Mexico, will undoubtedly present an equally interesting take on immigration.

NBC comedy Superstore is getting a Spanish-language adaptation.

Although Superstore is coming to an end on NBC, and will no longer feature America Ferrera, fans of the hit series should celebrate that it’s getting a Spanish-language redo. The show, which focused on the lives of employees at a fictional big box store called Cloud 9 in Missouri, premiered in 2015 and ran for six seasons, with its sixth season set to end on March 25.

“Superstore is a bold workplace comedy with a beating heart, known for its courage to tackle important societal issues,” said Enrique Guillen, executive VP of commercial strategy and international development for Universal Studio Group. “We are grateful to partner with Dopamine to adapt Justin Spitzer’s acclaimed comedy and one of Universal Television’s biggest success stories. This pact to co-produce our valuable IP in a foreign language is the first of many such deals to come.”

The new adaptation is being made under the working title Supertitlan and has received an 48-episode order and will be adapted in Spanish for the Latin American and U.S. Hispanic markets. 

Superstore has remained one of the most popular shows at NBC in its prime. As Variety points out, the Justin Spitzer-created comedy drew in 37 million viewers during its Season 5 run from 2019 to 2020.

And it’s getting a major expansion.

 The Spanish-language adaptation already has a season one order of 48 episodes with each episode coming in at an hour long. For a series that originally consisted of 20 episodes of 30 minutes, that’s a major expansion for the show. For fans of the show, that’s a whole lot more Superstore to look forward to.

Part 2 Of “Selena: The Series” Has Already Finished Filming And Here’s Everything We Know About The Next Season

Part 2 Of “Selena: The Series” Has Already Finished Filming And Here’s Everything We Know About The Next Season

Say the word “Selena,” and your mind is probably filled with the opening beats of “Como La Flor,” the Tejano singer’s famous ballad. Selena Quintanilla’s legacy has been explored in acclaimed movies, podcasts, documentaries, and now, a Netflix show. The first part of Selena: The Series premiered on December 4 and is guaranteed a second season.

But what do we know about part two of the series?

Selena: The Series is reigniting interest in our beloved Selena like never before but what’s next for the series?

Selena: The Series covers the life of the late Selena Quintanilla, so how does Netflix’s narrative compare to the true story? Crucially, the first nine episodes only cover the first 20 years of the subject’s life, which means that Selena part 2 will focus on Selena’s evolution into a Tejano superstar before her tragic 1995 death.

Part 1 of the Netflix series addresses the most relevant events, and tweaks certain facts for dramatic purposes. It’s also being met with mixed responses from both critics and viewers alike. But one thing is certain, the series is helping introduce an entirely new generation to the life of one of Latin music’s biggest stars.

The second season has already wrapped filming and it will focus on a very different part of Selena’s life.

Ever since the project was announced, it was confirmed that it would be a two-part limited series. As viewers already know, part one consisted on nine episodes, but it’s unclear how many will make up the second part.

The initial season has largely focused on the 1990 release of Selena’s album, Ven Conmigo, and her family’s discovery of her secret relationship with Pérez.

The next season will likely feature the release of Selena’s first English-language album and her 1992 elopement to Chris before her death and her ill-fated meeting with Yolanda Saldívar (Natasha Perez), the woman responsible for her 1995 murder.

Netflix has yet to confirm when viewers can expect the conclusion of Selena. However, Serratos confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that production had already wrapped—no COVID-19 delays here! Considering that timeline, season 2 could premiere in the first half of 2021. Worth noting: April 16, 2021 would’ve been Selena Quintanilla’s 50th birthday, an event that may be tied to the season’s release.

Season 2 Selena will be “more of the icon.” 

For all of its flaws, the first season of Selena: The Series has helped introduce a new generation to the iconic Latina. And it’s given viewers an introduction to part of the singer not everyone was familiar with. Fans have explored Selena’s childhood and her introduction to music.

But season 2 will focus more on the singer’s megastardom, according to Serratos. “The first part was nerve-racking because there was less footage for me to base my performance on. But at the same time it was more relaxed, because I got more liberty. People don’t know that version of Selena very much,” she told OprahMag.com. “Our second part we’re going to see a lot more of the icon. I had a lot more to base the performance on—but it was nerve-racking because people know that Selena so well. There was added pressure.”

It doesn’t look like there will be any major changes to the cast for part two.

It looks like much of the same cast from part one will also be featured in part two of the series. The ensemble includes Serratos as Selena, Chavira as Abraham, Posey as Chris, Seidy Lopez as Selena’s mother Marcella, Noemi Gonzalez as Selena’s sister and drummer Suzette, and Gabriel Chavarria as Selena’s brother and producer A.B. Natasha Perez’s Yolanda will also play a larger role in season 2 as she gets closer to Selena’s life and business. 

Moisés Zamora (American Crime) returns as the series creator, writer, and executive producer alongside producers Jaime Dávila, Rico Martinez, and Simran A. Singh. Members of the real-life Quintanilla family are also involved with both seasons as executive producers, including Abraham and Suzette.
