Money Heist (La Casa de Papel) will return with a season four in April 2020. The Netflix show is a Spanish heist crime drama series created by Álex Pina. Ever since its debut in 2017, the show has gone on to become the platform’s most-watched non-English language series; it is one of the most-watched series overall on Netflix.
Money Heist follows The Professor (played by actor Álvaro Morte), who is a criminal mastermind planning to pull off the biggest heist in history. For this purpose, he hires eight special people and forms a group of criminals to help himself achieve the impossible.
In season one, the group plan on using more than sixty hostages as a part of their attempt to print and escape with nearly two and a half billion euros. The mission carries on to the second season, bringing quite a few deaths of notable characters. As of today, the show has been running for a total of 23 episodes.
The series received critical acclaim for its sophisticated plot, interpersonal dramas, direction, and for trying to innovate Spanish television. The Italian anti-fascist song “Bella ciao,” which plays multiple times throughout the series, became a summer hit across Europe.
Netflix officially renewed the series for a third part with a considerably increased budget on 18 April 2018, which might make part 3 the most expensive series per episode in Spanish television history, according to Variety.
In August 2019, Netflix revealed that 34 million household accounts streamed part three of the show within a week of release; 24 million finished the series within this period, thereby making it one of the most-watched productions on Netflix of all time.
The show has been received positively by both the critics and the audiences.
There have been no official remarks from the side of Netflix regarding the plot details of this show.
