Season four of La Casa de Papal (Money Heist) turned up the heat and saw more action than all three previous seasons combined. It was an emotional rollercoaster with a major death and heartbreak. But the Bank of Spain heist wasn’t resolved and the series ended with a big cliff-hanger as Lisbon entered the bank, leaving fans desperate to find out what happens next.
Well it’ll be a long wait thanks to Covid-19, as Netflix has paused production on all its original series due to the global pandemic, but it appears fans of the super hit show will be rewarded with not one but two new seasons, according to Spanish site Marca. The site reported a two-season renewal agreement was reached with Netflix before the fourth season was released.
This comes after screenwriter Javier Gómez Santander told Spain’s El Mundo that, “With La Casa De Papel, we go game by game, like Simeone. Chapter by chapter, sequence-by-sequence, line by line. We do not ever consider how long the show can last. If we got to know the scope of the phenomenon, we wouldn’t have thought to kill Berlin.”
The streaming giant though has yet to officially confirm there will be more seasons. Typically Netflix waits a month or so before announcing further seasons depending on how successful a series run has been. But as Netflix’s most-watched non-English language series ever, it’s highly unlikely they would pull the plug just yet.
Meanwhile, the show’s creator Alex Pina has hinted fans could see a series of spin-offs.
“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 was quoted saying. “We’ve always looked for characters to have a very complex, layered design.”
