9 Best Spanish-Language TV Shows You Have to Binge Watch on Netflix

One of the best things about Netflix is that it gives you the ability to travel the world. 

The streaming giant has a growing library of international titles that make it easy to watch a foreign show or movie with just the click of a button. 

There’s a solid collection of Turkish and Korean TV shows, but my personal favorite is Spanish-language shows. 

There’s just enough drama and excitement in them to keep you on the edge of your seat! 

Turn on the written subtitles and enjoy! 

 

Money Heist

La Casa de Papel, as it’s known by its Spanish name, is arguable the most popular series on the list. A group of thieves led by criminal mastermind “The Professor” attempt to pull off the biggest heist in history at the Royal Mint of Spain. And once you learn why they’re doing it, you’ll find yourself on team hiding their faces behind the terrifying Salvador Dali mask. You’re missing out if you haven’t given the series a chance! 

 

Elite

Rich kids at an exclusive prep school? Check! A clash between the wealthy students and the working class? Check! A murder mystery that has you guessing until the very last moment? Double check. Elite, a modern-day Gossip Girl, has it all. 

 

High Seas

Also known as Alta Mar, the murder mystery thriller finds two sisters looking into a series of mysterious deaths on a luxury ship in the 1940s. It’s like a game of “Clue” come to life, only ten times more dramatic.

 

Cable Girls

The Spanish period drama is set in the 20s. It’s a proud day in Madrid, the location of the first national telephone company, as four young women get jobs, which is a statement and representation of the progress being made for women’s equality. 

 

Valeria

A comedy-drama that’s all about the power of friendship! Valeria, a writer who is having marital issues and writer’s block, turns to her three best friends, Carmen, Lola, and Nerea, for comfort and distraction. There’s nothing like the power of sisterhood. 

 

Somebody Has to Die

Alguien Tiene Que Morir is a period drama set in 1950s  conservative Spain. A young man is asked to come home to meet his fiancée, but his family doesn’t take kindly when he returns with a Mexican “ballerino” instead. 
 

 
 

Sky Rojo

How far would you go to find freedom? In the action-drama, three women working at a brothel are put to the test when they embark on wild escape from their pimp and his goons in search of a better life. 
 

 

Who Killed Sara

In this twisted thriller, Alex is framed for his sister’s murder and spends 18 years in prison planning the perfect revenge. When he’s released, he sets out the find the real killer and seeks retribution on the family that’s responsible.

 

Locked Up

In the Spanish crime-drama, also known as Vis a Vis, a middle-class woman is locked up in a high-security women’s prison after being set up for corporate fraud by her boss… who was also her lover. As the women take an interest in the “fresh meat,” she learns that her stint is going to come with its fair share of danger.

Your Guide to All the Must-Watch Christmas Movies of 2022

When the weather outside is frightful, holiday rom-coms are surely delightful.

There’s a reason why those predictable Hallmark-esque movies continue to be a holiday tradition—there’s nothing better than cozying up on the couch with some hot cocoa (or Gluhwein) and getting lost in the magic of the season.

And since there are so many good Christmas 2022 movies to choose from, we put together this little movie guide to help you so that you don’t miss any of the holiday goodness!

Fa la la la—enjoy!

 

Falling for Christmas (Netflix) – Nov 10

Lindsay Lohan triumphantly returns to the screen in this original Netflix rom-com, which hit the streamer on Nov. 10. In the flick, the Mean Girls star is a newly engaged heiress who suffers an accident at a ski resort and must figure out her identity with the help of, you guessed it, a charming hunk. The film is the first of two-projects that Lohan has secured for Netflix. Her other film, Irish Wish, is set to premiere in 2023.

Snow stars as Jess, who is dumped right before the holidays by her boyfriend Shawn (Alex Moffat) but is convinced by his parents to still spend the holidays with them and Shawn’s cousin (Long) while he’s away. While we expect feelings to develop, thing take a turn when a blast from the past, played by Sweet Magnolias’ JoAnna Garcia Swisher, arrives with her sights set on him. Co-writer Vince Vaughn called it almost a parody of the Hallmark movies.

 

Christmas With You (Netflix) – Nov 17

Riverdale’s Madeline Petsch is Georgia, the manager of a high-end hotel whose guests for the season include heartbroken singles, an infamous pop star, and a European ex-prince who recently abdicated his throne. As they look for an escape from their everyday lives, Georgia finds herself entangled in the madness and in a love triangle with the hotel chef and the ex-prince!

 

The Noel Diary (Netflix) – Nov 24

Kevin Pearson, er, Justin Hartley is a best-selling author who returns home for Christmas and is forced to sort out his mother’s estate. When he finds a diary, he’s “led down a path of self-discovery.”

 

A Christmas Story Christmas (HBO Max) – Nov 17

Ralphie (Peter Billingsley) is back and he’s all grown up! In the sequel to the holiday favorite, he must deal with all things Christmas, this time as a dad.

 

A Country Christmas Harmony (Lifetime) – Nov 18

Calling all Sweet Magnolia fans! Brooke Elliott and Brandon Quinn reunite in this rom-com about a country music star who returns to her hometown to perform a live Christmas concert where she runs into her ex-boyfriend/former music duo partner. “After a tempestuous rainstorm forces the ex-sweethearts to seek shelter in Luke’s ranch home, the two realize that the only way they’ll survive the holidays is with the other’s help.”

 

Spirited (Apple TV) – Nov 18

Will Ferrell, Ryan Reynolds, and Octavia Spencer appear in this retelling of A Christmas Carol. Ferrell stars as the Ghost of Christmas Present, who selects one dark soul on Christmas Eve to be reformed by three spirits, but when he picks the wrong Scrooge, Clint Briggs (Reynolds), forces the ghostly host to examine his own past, present, and future.

5 Characters Who Exited ‘Chicago Med’ in 2022

Published

on

Chicago Med Recap Status Quo, aka The Mess We’re In Season 7 Episode 4

Chicago Med’s mass exodus continues with several characters exiting the medical drama in 2022 alone.

Some of the exits were preplanned and announced in advance, allowing fans to prepare mentally, but a handful caught viewers by complete surprise, without much of a sendoff for the beloved characters.

While hospitals typically see a rotation of doctors in real life, it’s understandable that fans aren’t exactly thrilled with the constant shakeups on the One Chicago show. 

Here are all the stars who have departed (or are departing) Chicago Med Season 8:

 

Sarah Rafferty

Rafferty starred as Dr. Pamela Blake, the Head of Transplant Surgery. She made her debut in the fifth episode of season 7 before exiting in the premiere episode of season 8. And it felt abrupt considering the promising relationship she built up with Crockett (Dominic Rains). The couple had a bit of a falling out after she didn’t agree with the decision he made as her power of attorney during an operation, so fans would’ve understood if she wanted to end things and get a fresh start, but the writers didn’t do these two characters justice by addressing her decision to leave before she just packed her things and left. There was no goodbye or closure. Crockett went to her house to apologize for making a poor decision influenced by his own selfish reasons, but Blake’s daughter, Avery, informed him that she had already left town. It was weak and left fans scratching their heads, which wasn’t fair to the incredible pairing they built up ahead of this moment.

Guy Lockard

Locked portrayed Dr. Dylan Scott on the series after joining the cast in season 7, but he also exited the drama one season later in the premiere of season 8. Scott went through a bit of a heartbreaking situation when he lost the woman he loved, Jo, who was undercover as Milena (played by Riley Voelkel). Upon her death, he realized he’d constantly be pulled back into his former life as a cop, so he resigned to get a fresh start. 

Executive producer Andrew Schneider defended his exit to TVLine saying they “played” his character out and felt it “would be a good time for him to move on,” but honestly, Will Halstead is still here, so they surely could’ve taken Scott’s character in another direction if they wanted to.

Asjha Cooper

Cooper’s exit was a total shocker and a lot of fans may not have realized that handing her birth mom, Maggie, papers for vaccinations she needed to get in order to accept a job as a clinic nurse in the Philippines meant that this was Vanessa Taylor’s final episode. Why did Asjha Cooper leave Chicago Med? It’s unclear, but what we do know is that we’ll miss her. And maybe she’ll swing back around the next time she’s in the Windy City to visit her mom!

Brian Tee

Tee might be the biggest character exit to date as he’s been with the show since 2015. Sadly, his final episode as Dr. Ethan Choi will air on December 7. Tee told Deadline that he will be pursuing other projects and spending time with his family as his daughter was just a few weeks old when he joined the series. The comforting thing is that he’ll be back to direct an episode later in the season, but it’ll be hard to say goodbye to one of the OGs. Choi’s on-again, off-again love interest April (Yaya DaCosta) made a few guest appearances on season 8, even rekindling her romance with the ED doctor, so hopefully, the writers will tee-up Tee’s exit by noting that he’s going to be following his heart.

Kristen Hager

Hager joined the medical drama alongside Scott in season 7 as Stevie Hammer, an ER physician, but she didn’t even last the season, exiting halfway through without as much as a goodbye. In a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it-moment, Stevie decided to go to Michigan to give her marriage with her estranged husband another try, which was so odd considering the series was building up a love story between her and Halstead. We invested so much time into this storyline simply to have it fizzle out with an explanation. The show’s executive producers noted that they’d love to have Hager back on the show at some point, but they never gave a reason for her abrupt exit. However, a quick glance at her Instagram page reveals that she was very far along in her pregnancy at the time and gave birth over the summer to a beautiful baby girl!
