Rebelde (English: Rebel) is a Mexican telenovela produced by Televisa, and created by Cris Morena. It is a remake of the Argentine telenovela Rebelde Way adapted for the Mexican youth audience, leading to differences in characters' backgrounds. The series aired on Canal de las Estrellas from October 4, 2004, to June 2, 2006. Rebelde was replaced in June 2006 with Televisa's series Código Postal.

The series is set at the Elite Way School, a prestigious private boarding high school in Mexico City with a major plot line revolving around six students – Mía Colucci (Anahí), Diego Bustamante (Christopher von Uckermann), Roberta Pardo (Dulce María), Miguel Arango (Alfonso Herrera), Guadalupe "Lupita" Fernández (Maite Perroni), and Giovanni Méndez (Christian Chávez) – forming a band. Additional subplots involve the school's faculty and the students' parents. One trademark of the show is the random use of English words and phrases, often used by fresa characters.

A notable aspect of the series is that the actors playing the band members are themselves in an actual band named RBD, and perform most of the music used on the show. They have been extremely successful in their own right, becoming one of the most popular acts in Latin America and touring internationally.

Univisión aired Rebelde weekday afternoon at 3pm/2c from Monday, March 21, 2005 - December 15, 2006 replacing Corazones al limite. The last episode was broadcast on Friday, December 15, 2006 with Las dos caras de Ana replacing it on Monday, December 18, 2006.


Season 1

Elite Way School is a private boarding high school with international prestige where high-class teenagers receive a high level of education to be prepared for a great future. The school has a scholarship program for people with low financial resources who have an excellent academic level. However, few even graduate since they are persecuted by a secret society called "La Logia" ("The Lodge"), whose purpose is to conserve the purity of the privileged class. Among the students are Mía (Anahí), Diego (Christopher von Uckermann), Roberta (Dulce María), Miguel (Alfonso Herrera), Lupita (Maite Perroni), and Giovanni (Christian Chávez). Six teenagers who, despite their differences, discover something that will unite them above all – their love for music.
