This article will be updated as new information is revealed by Netflix and the Berlin series team.
The immense success of La Casa de Papel around the world gave Netflix ideas to expand its universe. Even though Alex Pina’s series is over, the franchise is still in great shape. After the South Korean remake Money Heist: Korea, it’s the turn of the spin-off centered on Berlin (Pedro Alonso) to soon appear.
Also known as Andrés de Fonollosa, Berlin is one of the emblematic characters of La Casa de Papel, since he was the second in command of the heist of the Royal Mint of Spain and also planned the breakage of the Bank of Spain. Here’s everything you need to know about the series dedicated to him.
Release date: Where and when will the Berlin series be released?

Trailer: What do the images of the Berlin series reveal?
The trailer for the Berlin series reflects the character played by Pedro Alonso, who has class, style, humor and charm. It is these qualities, mixed with a touch of madness, which make him carry out his heists, and in particular one: that of the Chez Vienot Auction House in Paris.
The Berlin teaser images promise us lots of adventure, twists and turns and ingenious plans for the heist of the century in the French capital. Sprinkle it all with an impossible love story and voila, fans of La Casa de Papel will fall for this spin-off.
Plot: What is the story of the Berlin series?
The series created byand Esther Martínez Lobato – who officiated on La Casa de Papel and Sky Rojo – is a prequel to La Casa de Papel. The story of Berlin therefore takes place before the original series, which is logical since
Berlin sacrificed himself for his group during the heist in the La Casa de Papel game.
Before the events of La Casa de Papel, Berlin is in its golden age and leads a life punctuated by love and money. He is preparing his next big move: the theft of a pile of jewelry worth 44 million. For this extraordinary heist, he will have to bring together a group of criminals ready to do anything for this heist of the century which will take place in… Paris!
