It’s well known that singer Luis Miguel is an extremely private person, which is why when a biographical series on his life and career debuted in 2018, fans were surprised the legendary crooner was heavily involved as an executive producer.
With the third and final season just released on Netflix, Miguel made a short statement on Twitter making sure that audiences understand Luis Miguel: The Series takes some creative license.
“The Netflix series is fiction,” Miguel tweeted this past weekend. “It is not 100% true. It’s based on real facts.”
Of course, Miguel didn’t expand on which portions of the series weren’t “100% true,” but it’s interesting and not so surprising that he made the comment at the start of the third season to pique fan interest. Audiences normally realize that there are fictional aspects of most biographical TV shows and movies, unless it’s a documentary, so we’re also wondering what parts of Miguel’s life and career he wants his fans to know are invented for dramatic effect.
Much is being made about the inclusion of Miguel’s relationship with Mariah Carey for the final season, so maybe that’s something he’d like to be certain people know is being played up for the cameras. Miguel and Carey dated between 1999 and 2001.
Earlier this year, actor and singer Diego Boneta (Rock of Ages), who plays Miguel in the series, told Remezcla that he thought Miguel was “brave” for greenlighting a TV show about himself. “He did share some really intimate things with me that he asked me not to tell anyone,” Boneta said at the time.
The third and final season of Luis Miguel: The Series is currently streaming on Netflix.
