The series will have 5 episodes, each one named after a member of the group. CNCO will also feature three original songs and perform familiar ones from other well-known artists.

"4 Ever" reminisces of how the band came to be. "The good thing about the series is that the writer thought a lot about us because we are obviously beginners. "We are starting this new project, so I think about the characters with certain details about us, about our personal lives," said Veléz in an interview with Tu Música Hoy.

In the same interview, Colón said he saw the acting gig as "a new path because it is the first time we do something like that." "The truth is that we loved it, so if it were up to us we would do a second season, third, and fourth," he added.

The singers described the challenges faced when it came to their lack of experiece acting. "An emotion through a camera, a person you don't know expressing that and making the person who is watching feel that real and genuine, that was challenging," Camacho said.

CNCO was formed on Dec. 13, 2015 in a singing competition called "La Banda" that aired on Univision. The group started off as a five member band – including former member Joel Pimentel DeLeōn – and went on to conquer millions of fans worldwide.

The group has had four members since 2021. They ended the group with a farewell tour called Ultima Cita (Last Date, a reference to their first album which was called Primera Cita (First Date)). Its last show took place on September 6 in Ciudad de Mexico's Auditorio Nacional.
