Berlin, the highly-anticipated spin-off of Netflix hit show, Money Heist, is all set to release in December this year, reported Deadline. Last year, the streaming giant officially ordered the spin-off project which will see actor Pedro Alonso returning to play Andres de Fonollosa aka Berlin.

The original series was written by Alex Pina and the creator is back on board to write this spinoff. During Netflix’s 2022 Tudum event, Pina and Pedro Alonso who stars as Berlin discussed the upcoming spinoff with Pina saying, “This is going to be a trip throughout the golden years of the character. When he was stealing all over Europe, madly in love.”

Prior to Berlin being announced, Pina had spoken to Oprah Daily about being open to the prospect of a spinoff. “We do have many possibilities for some spinoffs, yes, and I think that’s thanks to the strong and powerful identities of the characters,' he had said. "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. We could watch any of them in other contexts.”

Berlin is not the only spinoff that has come from the success of La Casa de Papel. The original series has seen a South Korean remake titled Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area. The success of the series was in line with the high performance many Korean series have enjoyed on Netflix.

Alongside Alonso who reprises his role from the original show, the prequel series will star Michelle Jenner as Keila, Begoña Vargas as Cameron, Julio Peña as Roi, Tristán Ulloa as Damián, and Joel Sánchez as Bruce. There is a chance that we might see other stars from the original series but that remains to be seen. The series is co-written by Pina, David Oliva, David Barrocal, and Esther Martinez Lobato.
