La Casa De Papel or popularly known as Money Heist had a flourishing five-season run on Netflix. Until the producers decided it was time to end the show on a sweet note. The show presented itself as one of the most exceptional heists shows ever made. Along with that, the mind games and strategies keep one navigating the edge of their seats throughout. The point being, the fans did not have enough. Definitely did not have enough of Berlin.
The audience wants more. To ease your minds, and dive deeper into the characters, Netflix has decided to do what is best. A spinoff! Berlin is back. Beloved Berlin played by Pedro Alonso, is one of the most gifted artists of our time.
If you somehow managed to miss the show, head on out now. This is your disclaimer for spoilers ahead. The viewers loved Berlin right from the beginning of the show. He was the mastermind behind the majestic heists.
We got some more context about the character after he was killed off in the final minutes of part II. But the flashbacks were not enough to do justice to the exceptionally well-written and interesting character. Want to revisit the monumental death scene? Here it is!
Ever since 2021, the year the show saw the end of the light, there have been numerous rumours of possible spin-offs. Alex Pina, the creator of the show himself, has made many claims about expanding on the characters’ backgrounds.
Pina added in his interview with Oprah, ‘“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 looked for characters to have a very complex, layered design. So I think almost every character of Money Heist has a duality that we would like to see in a spinoff.” And based on popular demand, Berlin was the right place to begin.
Who will we see in Berlin?
Netflix has recently dropped a cast reveal for its newest spinoff marvel. Curious to know more? Let’s begin with the writer. Alex Pina will return as the writer for the spinoff. In the previously mentioned interview, he also mentioned that this show will be more based on the life of Andrés de Fonollosa. The real Berlin.

What is Berlin going to be about?
According to reports post the Tudum event by Netflix, the show is going to cover the bases left uncovered in the first five seasons of the mother show. As viewers, we have learnt Berlin was in love five times throughout his life. Five divorces, five loves. Along with Tatiana. We get to see how Berlin falls madly in love these five times.
Pina adds in his interview, “This is going to be a trip throughout the golden years of the character. When he was stealing all over Europe, madly in love.” As one of Berlin’s other love Palermo joined the show towards the end, we are yet to learn how they meet.
In the Tudum event, we also get a flash of the revised 33rd version of the first script called “Pais Stories”. Hinting at Berlin’s monumentous heist of 434 diamonds from one of the most renowned places of Paris.
What to expect from Berlin?
By all the hints dropped by the producers, we can be rest assured the coming show will be based in Europe. Berlin will be seen in his younger years and his journey to becoming the mastermind of a heist that he has become. As Professor and Berlin are brothers, after all, the show might also touch upon their origin story. Younger years were spent by the heist brothers together.
Now the flashbacks from the last season of Money Heist make all the sense. Why we were given so much context to Berlin? Berlin is about to get bigger than he already was. Are you ready? Cause we are for sure. Ready to find out more about Berlin the bad guy?
