What is Berlin, the new series of Money Heist, about?
Netflix has just revealed the release date for Berlin: December 29, 2023. To close the year with a grand finale, the streaming platform is reserving this major release that aims to follow in the footsteps of Money Heist through its most iconic character. Oh, and it’s not just him who will return… Itziar Ituño and Najwa Nimri will also return as Raquel Murillo and Alicia Sierra. Cops in action against the best robber; there’s definitely hope for success.
As for the official synopsis, the story is set in the past when, at the peak of his life, Berlin plans to steal a collection of jewels worth 44 million euros. More specifically, he aims to make them disappear right before the eyes of the guards. To achieve this feat, he will have the help of a capable crew:
Keila (Michelle Jenner) is an electronic engineer who’s an expert in computer codes and cybersecurity. She’s as intelligent and sensitive as she is socially awkward.
Damián (Tristán Ulloa) is an engineer, physicist, and chemist. He’s the perfect executor of Berlin’s impossible ideas and his close friend.
Cameron (Begoña Vargas) is a force of nature who lives life on the edge and never calculates the risk.
Roi (Julio Peña Fernández) is an expert at picking locks and breaking into prisons. Until he met Berlin and became his star pupil and loyal sidekick.
Bruce (Joel Sánchez) can handle just about anything, from all kinds of vehicles to weapons or a thermal lance. He’s playful, charming, and a bit of a troublemaker at heart.
