What Foreign Language Content You Should Stream in 2024

Though 2023 saw the actors’ and writers’ strikes in Hollywood, there is still a plethora of highly-anticipated foreign language movies and TV shows coming to streaming platforms in 2024. Non-English language content continues to rise in watch times on the top platforms, and it looks like 2024 will have even more content for viewers in a variety of languages.

Here are a few shows and movies to add to your watch lists this year.

The Breakthrough (Netflix)

Netflix has announced a five-part series based on the novel The Breakthrough: How the genealogist solved the double murder in Linköping (Genombrottet: Så löste släktforskaren dubbelmordet i Linköping). The Swedish series stars Peter Eggers and Mattias Nordkvist as the police office and genealogist determined to solve the crime. 

The streaming site has focused on promoting Swedish content after successes of shows such as The Young Royals (which returns for a third season) and A Nearly Normal Family.

The Breakthrough will launch globally sometime in 2024 on Netflix.

The Delinquents (MUBI)

Rodrigo Moreno’s The Delinquents is a Spanish-language comedic heist film set in Buenos Aires. It focuses on a man who attempts to escape the monotony of his bank job by stealing money.

Rolling Stone said of the film: “Part of the sheer joy of watching The Delinquents is not knowing where it’s going next, only to feel that its many tangents and detours were dotted on the path all along.” (Source)

The Delinquents is streaming now on MUBI.
