One of Netflix’s biggest shows, Money Heist, is getting a prequel! Money Heist: Berlin will dive further into the character of Berlin (Andrés de Fonollosa), a fan-favorite from the original show. Pedro Alonso will reprise the role of Berlin in the new show.

The new series is going to take viewers on “a trip throughout the golden years of the character. When he was stealing all over Europe, madly in love,” according to Alex Pina, the creator of Money Heist, at the Netflix 2022 Tudum event. The series will be full of all the things fans loved about the original series and much more!

Ahead of the show’s release, we took a look at the latest release update and gathered all the essential information you need to know. Here’s everything you need to know about Berlin before it arrives on our screens.

What is Berlin about?

Here’s what you need to know about the new show, per the official synopsis shared by Netflix:

"There are only two things that are sure to turn a bad day into a great one: love, and a payday worth millions. They’re what keep Berlin going through his golden years, a time when he still has no inkling of his illness and hasn’t gotten trapped like a rat in the Spanish Mint. This is where he starts preparing one of his most extraordinary heists: making jewels worth 44 million disappear like some sort of magic trick. To do it, he’ll enlist the help of one of the three gangs he’s ever stolen with."
