'Money Heist' aka 'La Casa de Papel' part 4: Release date, plot, cast, trailer and everything you need to know about the Spanish crime drama
The Spanish heist television series created by Álex Pina is widely watched on Netflix with the streaming service announcing that 'Money Heist' was the most-watched non-English language series ever. Well, it's no surprise as the riveting crime series won Best Drama at the International Emmy Awards and the Premios Fénix.
After the official date was announced, Pina said at a press conference, "It was a complicated pulse, there were many reasons not to return. On the one hand, it was a short and concluded series about a robbery. On the other hand, the protagonists end up being millionaires and putting them together for another robbery seemed something remotely impossible, but we realized that this was a band with different characteristics than we see in the stories of perfect robberies."
Can't wait to watch all the action unfold in the Spanish series? Netflix has confirmed Season 4 of 'Money Heist' aka 'La Casa de Papel' will premiere on April 3, 2020.
The story in the first two parts put the spotlight on a multi-day assault on the Royal Mint of Spain. "Eight thieves take hostages and lock themselves in the Royal Mint of Spain as a criminal mastermind manipulates the police to carry out his plan," the official summary on Netflix reads. A team of people took hostages as part of their plan to print and escape with €2.4 billion ($2.68 billion crores) After the third part of the series, which revolved around an assault on the Bank of Spain ended on a dramatic cliffhanger, fans are eagerly awaiting the fourth part of the series.
