Tell Us Which Spanish-Language Shows Deserve To Be On Everyone's Radar

I'm still waiting on Season 2 of Los Espookys.

With streaming, there are now hundreds of shows at our fingertips. And while English-language titles are usually the ones to make headlines, shows like Squid Game prove that expanding your worldview really pays off.

Currently, over 559 million people speak Spanish worldwide. Yes, half a billion. So, with an audience this large, there is obviously some grade-A television made in the language that deserves to make headlines of its own.

Whether you're an English speaker who doesn't mind reading subtitles, or you're a Spanish speaker who just has a favorite show, what is a Spanish-language show we should all be watching?

Perhaps you fell in love with HBO Max's Veneno, which tells the real-life story of Spain's most beloved and fabulous trans icon of the '90s Cristina Ortiz Rodríguez, also known as La Veneno.

Or you tell all your friends to watch Netflix's Luis Miguel: La serie, which is an authorized biographical look at the life of Mexican global superstar Luis Miguel.

Maybe you tweet every other day about wanting a second season of HBO's Los Espookys like I do. The show follows four horror-loving friends as they build a business on creating horror movie scenarios in real life.

Or you're a massive fan of Netflix's La Casa de las Flores, which is a dark comedy that follows the lives and scandals of the rich de la Mora family in Mexico City.
