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.
