Title Teenage consumption of television series. The case of “La que se avecina” Summary Television series exert a significant influence on adolescents’ beliefs and opinions, especially in regards to gender, racial and social stereotypes. In this context, this work aims to discern youth involvement with fiction series by finding out what types of series they consume and what motivations they have for doing so. The bonds that are established by teenagers with the characters were also determined. For this purpose and by means of a mixed methodology; surveys and group dynamics were conducted with 236 adolescents from four education centers in Zaragoza. The results have shown that these teenagers consume Spanish sitcoms, such as La que se avecina as they are drawn to its absurd humour and also establish bonds with adult characters who are defined by their comicalness. Keywords Adolescence, fiction series, humor, motivation, characters.
