- The heist will feature the crew going through the catacombs of Paris to get into the vault.
The new trailer for the upcoming show Berlin shows a first look at some familiar characters. Taking place in the same universe as Money Heist, Berlin gets its name from the titular character who gathers a gang of robbers in Paris in order to complete one of the most impressive bank robberies of all time. Berlin season 1 debuts on Netflix on December 29.
The trailer sees Berlin meet up with his thief companions to travel through the catacombs of Paris and more. It is replete with both scenes of action and hints of romance.
How Berlin Will Expand The Money Heist Universe
Beginning in 2017, Money Heist is one of the most popular international shows on Netflix to date. The Spanish-language crime series ran for five seasons, showcasing an idiosyncratic gang of robbers as they attempted to pull off the best crime in Spanish history. Money Heist introduced international audiences to a number of notable characters, including El Profesor, Raquel Murillo, Berlin, and Rio in the ensemble piece.
Two of those characters will return to the Money Heist universe for Berlin: Berlin (Pedro Alonso) and Raquel Murillo (Itziar Ituño). These veterans will join a new team, with characters including Alicia Sierra (Najwa Nimri), Keila (Michelle Jenner), Cameron (Begoña Vargas), and Roi (Julio Peña). Money Heist creator Esther Martínez Lobato returns in Berlin.
By letting familiar faces join in with new ones, Berlin will be able to draw upon characters that viewers have grown to love from Money Heist and put them in a new situation. The events of Berlin take place before those of Money Heist, so the spinoff show will act as somewhat of an origin story for its titular character, alongside Raquel Murillo. Audiences will soon get the chance to see what thieving antics Raquel, Berlin, and the new gang will get into as Berlin hits Netflix at the end of the year.
