Announced in January , Netflix will open its Latin America office at the end of this year, in 2021. Netflix will invest approximately $ 300 million in over 50 local and global original productions that will be filmed in Mexico and premiered in 2021. If we add the $ 200 million the company invested in 2020, Netflix Mexico will have spent half a billion dollars by the end of 2021 in two years, Ramos confirmed. Netflix also expects to fully open its Latin American headquarters in Mexico with over 100 employees by the end of the year in 2021.

The company has moved beyond the drama series to deal with comedy, adventure, documentary, action, and unwritten food. Comedy, whether scripted or stand-up, is a good thermostat for gauging what's popular out there, Ramos said. Mexico's rich tradition of telenovelas also boasts an abundance of local producers, crews, and talent for Netflix's upscale dramas, he pointed out.
