'Netflix' officially orders 'Money Heist' spin-off

Netflix officially orders Money Heist spin-off

Money Heist' may be getting over on 'Netflix' but a spin-off show, centring on popular character Berlin, is already being developed at the streaming service.

'Netflix' has officially ordered the spin-off project, which will see actor Pedro Alonso returning to play Andres de Fonollosa, also known as Berlin.

Titled 'Berlin', the show is set to launch in 2023, reported 'Deadline'.

Berlin is one of the most popular-yet-polarising characters from 'Money Heist', known as 'La Casa De Papel' in Spanish.

Fans have found him to be quite charming, clever, funny and attractive but deep down, he is a misogynistic and violent man, who is also a sexual predator.

There are no details about the new show's plot and how the makers plan to bring Berlin back as the character had died towards the end of season two of 'Money Heist'.

The news of the spin-off comes as 'Money Heist' is ending with its last five episodes dropping on December 3.

The 'Netflix' series traces two heists pulled off by a ragtag group of thieves, led by the enigmatic The Professor (Alvaro Morte) - one on the Royal Mint of Spain and one on the Bank of Spain.

The fifth and final season of the popular Spanish series has been divided into two parts of five episodes each. The first five had debuted on 'Netflix' on September 3.

Meanwhile, the Korean adaptation of 'Money Heist' will feature 'Squid Game' star Park Hae-soo as Berlin.

The Korean adaptation of 'Money Heist' will be directed by Kim Hong-sun.
