Neon: a Reggaeton-Inspired Comedy Series, Has Been Greenlit by Netflix

Neon, a new reggaeton comedy series from Netflix starring Tyler Dean Flores, Emma Ferreira, Jordan Mendoza, and Courtney Taylor, has made its debut. Here are some preliminary descriptions of what to anticipate from the new series, which is rumored to start filming in early 2023.

About the Neon

“Neon centers on three friends who relocate from a small Florida town to Miami in order to succeed in the reggaeton industry. The program chronicles both their fantastical dreams and the hilariously grim realities of trying to succeed in the music business.

When Will the Production Start?

The new series’ filming is scheduled to start early next year and last until April 2023. The show will be filmed in Puerto Rico, but Netflix was unable to provide a schedule.

There will be 8 episodes in Neon’s debut season.

The show was created by Shea Serrano’s The Rap Year Book and Basketball is among the best-selling books by this prolific author (and Other Things).
