‘Money Heist’ Cast and Crew Discuss Series Finale And Tease Spin-off Possibility
Money Heist, or La Casa De Papel, is a prime example of how a well-written and well-produced show can do well worldwide even if it is not in the English language. Since it first came out in 2017, the show has built a massive fan following all over the world.
The Netflix show is now on its fifth and final part. It’s set to be the most exciting, emotional, action-filled part of the show. But is there a possibility of anything beyond the end?
Possibility Of Spinoffs for ‘Money Heist’
During an interview with Variety, the show’s hearts, creator and writer Alex Pina, alongside cast members Ursula Corbero (Tokyo), and Alvaro Morte (The Professor), talked about many things regarding the show. One of the topics discussed was the show’s future beyond season 5.
None of them were readily prepared to say complete goodbyes to the show. They were all reluctant to immediately dismiss the possibility that they could pay the story a visit sometime in the future.
Revisiting Money Heist is also made easier by how the story has been told in the four seasons that are out right now, presumably in the fifth part. The show uses many flashbacks and cutaways to give viewers an idea about important details in the narrative.
This makes spinoff possibilities pretty much endless. Any character could make a comeback at any time, and the story could be stretched to any point possible.
Pina revealed that while there were no immediate plans for more seasons or episodes, he wanted to wait till the final season came out to decide for the future.
And the two actors, too, were still interested in their characters and the show in general. Corbero talked about how she hadn’t said farewell to Tokyo after the show’s end.
“When we finished shooting, I chose not to say goodbye to Tokyo. It seemed too heartbreaking, so I decided to take her with me forever, and I never close doors to opportunity,” she said. But she also recognized that she had to move on to other projects for now.
Morte also had similar feelings. While he remarked he was satisfied with how the show ended, he added, “It would be a pleasure to return to The Professor. Anything can happen.”
‘Money Heist’ Season 5: How The Show Got Here
La Casa De Papel was first aired on May 3, 2017. And it wasn’t Netflix who first let the world feast eyes on the masterpiece. Instead, it was a local broadcaster named Antena 3 in Spain.
But, Diego Avalos, the VP of original content for Netflix Spain, watched the show during his flight from Spain to Los Angeles. And before he landed in LA, he decided to get the show on Netflix.
The streaming service made the show available on its platform on July 1, 2017. And since then, it has become the most-watched non-English-language series and one of the most-watched shows of all time on Netflix.
Now all that’s left to do is wait for the last part of the show to be released. The first volume is going up on Netflix on September 3, with the second volume following on December 3.
But, if you finish season five and feel like the end of an era, fret not. Netflix and Alex Pina are already creating a Korean version of Money Heist.
