10 Spanish-Language Shows On Netflix You Need To Watch Inmediatamente

You don’t have to be fluent to enjoy these series.


Don’t suffer in a show hole. From drama and sensationalism to the humor of life, Netflix’s Spanish programming awaits your viewing pleasure. The streamer doubled its Spanish TV originals in 2022, meaning you have a whole new world of entertainment to explore — and the following series are a great place to start.


Someone Has To Die (Alguien Tiene Que Morir)

This mini-series is set in the 1950s, thus bringing the style and tones you probably loved in Mad Men — but you can expect more amped-up drama and intrigue as the secrets of this well-to-do family begin to unravel.



Produced by Salma Hayek, Monarca might just be the very best of all those family-business dramas we love to immerse ourselves in. Filled with sweeping images of the Mexican landscape, Monarca follows Ana Maria as she attempts to run her family’s tequila business after the death of her parents.

High Seas (Alta Mar)

Set entirely on a luxury ocean liner, the series follows two sisters as they travel to Brazil on what might just be the sketchiest cruise ever. Mysteries keep unfolding, and with nothing else to entertain them, the girls work to solve each case.

Dark Desire (Oscuro Deseo)

Sex and obsession lead you through this steamy drama centering on an affair between a married woman and her much younger lover. It’s so hot, you’ll want to stay up and watch it alone.



Need something less thrilling but still equally enthralling? Valeria is your gal. Set in Madrid, Valeria follows a young novelist (the title character) and her friends as they navigate life. Sort of like Sex and the City but younger and in Spanish.


Toy Boy

If Magic Mike and the 1999 classic Double Jeopardy had a love child, it would be this (super) sexy drama about a stripper trying to clear his name for a crime he didn’t commit — but did spend seven years in jail for.


Missing Gossip Girl? Same. Elite takes all the sex and mystery of Gossip Girl and wraps it up in an even glossier package. Set in a prep school in Spain, Elite brings all the drama — and the escapism into the glamorous life of affluent teens.


Daughter From Another Mother (Madre Solo hay Dos)

If you think a show about two mothers finding out their babes were switched birth would be dramatic, you’d be... maybe half right. Madre Solo hay Dos takes this awful turn of events and turns it into something both special and funny.


The House of Flowers (La Casa de Las Flores)

For even more light-hearted viewing, La Casa de Las Flores is the answer. Set in a family-run florist shop, the show may center on the family’s dramas, but it always takes care to find the humor in each situation. Life is messy, after all, and sometimes that’s pretty funny.

Who Killed Sara? (¿Quién mató a Sara?)

If you haven’t become obsessed with this gripping mystery yet, you won’t regret the binge-watch. The show follows Álex Guzmán, who spent 18 years in prison for killing his sister. Only he didn’t do it, and now that he’s out, he’s hellbent on finding out who did.
