It’s time for another roundup for 2022, where we’ll use the Netflix Top 10 to look at which Spanish-language movies and series scored the most points in the Netflix Top 10.
This list comes from SVOD tracking site FlixPatrol, which tracks daily top 10s and other factors each day to determine what’s hot on Netflix and other streaming services. By assigning points to titles that appear in Netflix’s top 10, we can see what the trend is weekly, monthly, or in this case for the whole of 2022.
This is one of several top 10 roundups we’ve put together, looking back at the biggest hits of 2022. We’ve covered the top 100 highest-grossing shows, biggest action movies, horror movies and reality shows.
The 25 Best Spanish-Language TV Series on Netflix in 2022
Colombian telenovelas dominated Netflix’s top 10 in 2022, but what’s even more remarkable is that some of the biggest titles weren’t available on Netflix worldwide.
Undertake coffee with the scent of a woman, for example; this show is only available in a few select countries in Latin America, but it still beats globally available titles.
Why did it manage to dominate the top 10 so much? Big seasons. In the case of Cafe, Season 1 consists of a total of 88 episodes.
The first series to feature Spain itself is Elite which returned for two new seasons (Seasons 5 and 6) in 2022 and undoubtedly helped his scoring ability.
