Money Heist Cast – then and now by HollywoodNuts

Money Heist is a Spanish heist crime drama television series developed by Lex Pina, whose name translates to “The House of Paper” in English. From the viewpoint of one of the thieves, Tokyo (rsula Corberó), the series follows two meticulously planned heists carried out by the Professor (Lvaro Morte), one on the Royal Mint of Spain and the other on the Bank of Spain. Flashbacks, time jumps, hidden character motivations, and an unreliable narrator are used to add intricacy to the real-time-like narrative.

It was originally planned for the series to only consist of two parts. Antena 3 in Spain broadcast the show’s initial 15 episodes from 2 May until 23 November 2017. Late in 2017, Netflix purchased worldwide streaming rights. It shortened the series into 22 shorter episodes and distributed it globally, releasing the first part on December 20, 2017, and the second on April 6, 2018. With a budget that was dramatically boosted for a total of 16 new episodes, Netflix revived the show in April 2018. Eight episodes of Part 3 were made available on July 19, 2019. Part 4, which had eight episodes as well, was made available on April 3, 2020. The following day, Money Heist: The Phenomenon (La casa de papel: El Fenómeno), a documentary with the creators and the cast, had its Netflix debut. The fifth and final season of the program was added to Netflix’s catalog in July 2020. It debuted on 3 September and 3 December 2021 in two volumes of five episodes each.

The same day Money Heist: From Tokyo to Berlin, a two-part documentary produced by and starring the actors of Money Heist: The Phenomenon, debuted on Netflix. In Madrid, Spain, the television show was filmed. Filming locations for major amounts of the project also included Panama, Thailand, Italy (Florence), Denmark, and Portugal (Lisbon). Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area, a vague remake/continuation set in the same scenario, was released on June 24, 2022. A direct spin-off, Berlin, starring Pedro Alonso in his previous role, is currently in active production, creating a shared universe.

The show was praised by critics for its complex plot, interpersonal dynamics, direction, and attempt to modernize Spanish television. It won multiple honors, including the International Emmy Award for Best Drama Series at the 46th International Emmy honors. Multiple times throughout the series, the Italian anti-fascist song “Bella ciao” was a summertime hit throughout Europe in 2018. By 2018, the show was one of the most popular Netflix series overall and the most popular non-English-language show,[3] particularly popular with viewers from Mediterranean Europe and Latin America.
