The Money Heist (La Casa de Papel) gang might’ve pulled off their heist
at last, but that doesn’t mean it’s the end of the story. The latest series —
by Money Heist creator Álex Pina and his Sky Rojo collaborator, Esther Martínez
Lobato — is centered around the character Berlin (Pedro Alonso), long before he
finds out about his terminal diagnosis and takes the Royal Mint of Spain
hostage. The spin-off BERLIN follows the titular character in his golden age as
he attempts one of his most extraordinary heists.
What happens in BERLIN?
In Money Heist, a group of strangers (all nicknamed after cities) band together to rob the Royal Mint of Spain with a plan created by the Professor (Álvaro Morte) and executed by Berlin. This new series BERLIN focuses on an earlier period in Berlin’s life, which is touched upon in flashbacks in the later seasons of Money Heist.
Berlin says there are only two things that can turn a bad day into a
great one: love and a million-dollar payday. This is what keeps him razor
focused on his lofty goals. So, he’s preparing one of his most extreme heists
yet - disappearing $44 million worth of jewels. But first, he’ll need to enlist
the help of some savvy criminals: Keila, a cybersecurity mastermind; Damián, an
academic and Berlin’s close friend; Cameron, a loose cannon who lives life on
the edge; Roi, a locksmith and Berlin’s faithful sidekick; and Bruce, who’s
fluent in gadgets and weaponry.
To stream this December, the Berlin series was filmed in Paris and
Madrid with Pedro Alonso (Money Heist) as Berlin, Michelle Jenner (Isabel) as
Keila, Tristán Ulloa (Fariña) as Damián, Begoña Vargas (Welcome to Eden) as
Cameron, Julio Peña (Through My Window) as Roi and Joel Sánchez as Bruce.

With a talented cast, an intriguing plot, and the promise of more excitement and unpredictability, the new series is sure to be a hit with audiences.
“It’s a trip through the golden age of the character, when he robbed
around Europe crazy in love,” Pina says. Essentially, it’s a series full of white-collar
crimes, tension, travel, romance and, most interestingly, humour. “That’s the
most surprising, the comedy. You’re going to make people laugh a lot,” Pina
