Over the last few years, Spanish television series have evolved drastically. While they are mainly set in Spain, Mexico and occasionally the United States, these series have become a global sensation, thanks to Netflix’s love for variety shows.
While they are usually telenovelas, quintessential to Spanish productions, they also feature strong female leads and are brutal commentaries on the pervading corruption, casual racism and sexism, homophobia and transphobia, rampant drug abuse and tumultuous political strife plaguing the Spanish and Mexican society. They also provide a closer look into family structures, love, relationships and more and often subvert stereotypes, making one question their values and morals.
