Senna is an upcoming Brazilian biographical drama television miniseries based on the life of Ayrton Senna. It will be released on Netflix in 2024.[1]


The series follows the life of Ayrton Senna from the beginning of his racing career in Formula Ford to the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix.



Netflix announced the series in September 2020.[2] The series was produced with the help of Ayrton Senna's family, with Viviane Senna stating, "It is very special to be able to announce that we will tell the story that only a few people know about him. The Senna family is committed in making this project something totally unique and unprecedented. And no one better than Netflix, that has a global reach, to be our partner."[3]

Vicente Amorim was announced as the series' director in August 2022.[4] Gabriel Leone was cast as Senna in March 2023.[5] Kaya Scodelario joined the cast in July 2023.[6][7]

The series was shot in São Paulo and Angra dos Reis, with additional filming taking place in Argentina, Uruguay, and the United Kingdom.[8] Filming began in late 2023.[9][10]


On 1 February 2024, Netflix debuted a clip from the series as part of their 2024 Series and Film Preview.[11] The first teaser trailer was released on 30 April 2024.[12][13]
