It’s time for another 2022 recap where we’ll be using the Netflix top 10s to look through what Spanish-language movies and series picked up the most points in Netflix’s top 10s.
This list is sourced from the SVOD tracking site FlixPatrol which, every day, tracks the daily top 10s and other factors to determine what’s trending on Netflix and other streaming services. By assigning points to titles that feature in Netflix’s top 10s, we can look at what’s trending weekly, monthly, or in this case, for the entirety of 2022.
This is one of several top 10 roundups we’ve compiled looking back at the biggest hits of 2022. We’ve covered the top 100 series that picked up the most points, the biggest action movies, horror movies, and reality series.
Top 25 Spanish Language TV Series on Netflix in 2022
Colombian telenovelas dominated the Netflix top 10s in 2022, but even more remarkable is that some of the biggest titles weren’t available on Netflix worldwide.
Take Café con aroma de mujer, for instance; that show is only available in a select few Latin American countries but still outperformed globally available titles.
Why was it able to dominate the top 10s so much? Big seasons. In the case of Cafe, season 1 consists of a whopping 88 episodes.
The first series to feature from Spain itself is Elite which returned for two new seasons (seasons 5 and 6) in 2022 and undoubtedly assisted its ability to pick up points.
