BERLIN, a Money Heist spinoff, will be released on Netflix in December 2023. The highly anticipated heist drama will be the first spinoff from Netflix’s popular heist crime drama television series created by Alex Pina.
Pedro Alonso will reprise his Berlin character from the original series in BERLIN. Michelle Jenner will play Keila, Begoa Vargas will play Cameron, Julio Pea will play Roi, Tristán Ulloa will play Damián, and Joel Sánchez will play Bruce. The original series was remade in South Korea as Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area. The success of the series was comparable to that of several highly acclaimed Korean series on Netflix. Let’s look at what we know so far about the upcoming show.
BERLIN will continue the story of Berlin from Money Heist.
Pedro Alonso, who played Berlin/Andrés de Fonollosa in Money Heist, will return in the upcoming Netflix series. Berlin is a terminally ill grand larcenist, jewel thief, cracksman, and the Professor’s second-in-command and brother in the series. Netflix has released an official teaser trailer.
The video had no dialogue and only showed Berlin placing gemstones and cardboard mini humans on a cardboard model of a bank, implying that he and his team are planning a massive heist.
Before its unveiling, the series’ creator Alex Pina told Oprah Daily he was open to a spin-off, saying, “We do have many possibilities for some spinoffs, yes, and I think that’s thanks to the strong and powerful identities of the characters. We’ve always sought out characters with intricate, layered designs.
“So I think almost every character in Money Heist has a duality that we would like to see in a spinoff,” he continued. We could watch any of them in different situations.”
When Netflix announced the new season of Money Heist in late November 2021, just days before Season 5, Part 2, they teased the upcoming spinoff briefly with the caption,
We’ve already met Berlin in #LaCasaDePapeland, and now it’s Andrés de Fonollosa’s turn. We can already confirm that the spin-off of his life will be released in 2023.”
Pina and Alonso discussed the upcoming spinoff at Netflix’s 2022 Tudum event. “This is going to be a journey through the character’s golden years,” Pina explained. When he was madly in love and stealing all over Europe.”
Money Heist (originally titled La casa de papel in Spanish) is a 2017 heist crime drama television series created by Lex Pina. It depicts two extremely calculated and planned heists led by the Professor, played by lvaro Morte. The two locations are the Royal Mint of Spain and the Bank of Spain. The story is told through the eyes of Tokyo, one of the robbers on the team. According to IMDb, the show is about “an unusual group of robbers attempting to carry out the most perfect robbery in Spanish history – stealing 2.4 billion euros from the Royal Mint of Spain.”
The show’s executive producers include Lex Pina, Sonia Martnez, Jes Colmenar, Esther Martnez Lobato, and Nacho Manubens. The show was shot in countries such as Spain, Italy, Thailand, Panama, Denmark, and Portugal.
BERLIN will be available on Netflix worldwide in December 2023.
