The first season of the reboot of the series that marked a whole generation is now available on the streaming platform. We will tell you what the new protagonists are like and what the performers of the mythical group RBD are currently doing.

“Just stay in silence for five minutes…”. “And I’m a rebel, when I don’t follow others …”. Surely you have known how to follow these fragments of two of the best-known songs of RBD, the Mexican band that had its beginnings in the iconic series Rebel. Such was its success that fiction marked the adolescents of the 2000s and the group even filled the football fields, like the late Vicente Calderon, around the world. Today, the fans of the series are in luck. A new mexican version llega a Netflix.

The fictional school that gave birth to RBD reopens its doors with a style that reminds us, and much, of Elite. Of course, the new version of Rebel will have a history completely renewed and adapted to the new generationsFor example, among the protagonists we will see tattoos, discolorations and a style typical of the classic boarding school uniform. In addition, the scripts will be more attached to the Argentine version released in 2002, Rebelde Way, and not to the Mexican soap opera that Anahí, Dulce María, Maite Perroni, Poncho Herrera, Christopher Uckermann and Christian Chávez starred in two years later.

So what will the plot look like? Rebel follows a group of young people from one of the most prestigious schools in Mexico, the boarding school Elite Way School. All of them very different from each other, but with a common dream: to succeed in music. Thanks to their instruments, their great voices and dance, young people will express their feelings and it will be the way to rebel against what is expected of them. However, everything gets complicated when a common enemy appears: the secret society ‘La Logia’, which threatens to crush the musical hopes of the new students.

However, although the protagonists have no relationship with the previous generation, among the cast of the new version of Netflix we find an actress who sounds a lot to us. The director of the mythical boarding school is played by Estefania Villareal, who gave life to Celina Ferrer in Rebel. We can also see many similarities between the characters of the two generations. Next, we will tell you who could be who in the new Rebel.
