UPDATE: Check out the best Spanish television airing new episodes in 2020!

Keep up to date on the latest and current Spanish language series from US channels and production companies in 2019. Telemundo and Univision have historically been great sources for shows in Spanish but they're no longer the only place to find new Spanish shows in 2019. There are more Spanish shows on Netflix every season, and even premium cable channels such as HBO are creating new shows in Spanish. This list looks at the best current television Spanish-language series that that will be airing new episodes in 2019. Which are the best new and returning Spanish shows in 2019?

Including biographies, comedies, crime thrillers, and competition series; some good Spanish shows in 2019 are dramas like Los Espookys, Money Heist, and Crime Diaries. Some series, like The House of Flowers (La Casa de las Flores), may have had their first season only recently but will nonetheless be seeing a new batch of episodes in this year. On the opposite end of the spectrum, La Reina del Sur (adapted in English as Queen of the South for USA Network) has had eight years between seasons one and two.

Vote up the best Spanish language shows of 2019, and add your favorites if they're missing from the list.
