la casa de papel season 4
- The brand new trailer brings back the Professor's older brother, Berlín, and fans have been warned to prepare for the chaos.
We're less than 48 hour away from season 4 of Netflix's La Casa de Papel a.k.a Money Heist–and we're officially squirming to know what happens next.
According to the official trailer, season 4 opens right where season 3 left off: Nairobi fighting for her life, Lisbon in police custody, and the Professor on the run. The trailer's most surprising revelation? The return of Berlin, who died back in
Already, people are theorizing about the fates of both fan favorites. Is Berlin back from the dead, magically—or is just coming back in flashback form? Will Nairobi survive after being shot in the chest by police? Will she ever reunite with her son, Axel, who had been used as bait to lure her out of the museum?
Essentially, here's a lot happening with our favorite crew. On April 3, we'll find out exact what is going on in the Bank of Spain. This is what you need to know about season 4 of La Casa de Papel.
When will season 4 of La Casa de Papel (Money Heist) release?
Season 4 is coming on April 3, 2020.
The release date follows a similar pattern for earlier seasons: After season 1 released on May 9, 2017, season 2 quickly followed on October 16, 2017. Season 3 dropped July 19, 2019, and it'll be less than a year before we have new episodes (at least that's what we're telling ourselves as we anxiously wait for more).
But unlike prior seasons, Netflix will also release a documentary about the series and how it became an international phenomenon, according to Deadline. Few details about the documentary have been released, but according to Spanish film magazine Fotogramas, the documentary will include testimonies from creator Alex Pina, his partners, as well as members of the cast.
In addition to the trailer, the show has been building the (already high) anticipation for the new season on Instagram. It was recently "hacked" by Inspector Alicia Sierra (played by Najwa Nimri), who was introduced in season 3 and can be seen offering Lisbon a heartbreaking proposition in the season 4 trailer: sell out The Professor or lose your family.
Alicia briefly censored the account — "if you are with [the Professor], you are not with me" — but on March 3, the account was restored with "a message for the resistance." The Professor appeared and called out the police's failed campaign to discredit the group, and he warned fans not to be fooled.
Who is in the cast?
All of the thieves are back in the new trailer: The Professor/Salvador "Salva" Martin (Álvaro Morte), Tokio (Úrsula Corberó), Denver (Jaime Lorente Lopez), Nairobi (Alba Flores), Helsinki (Darko Peric), Raquel/Lisbon (Itziar Ituño), Monica/Stockholm (Esther Acebo), Bogotá (Hovik Keuchkerian), Palermo (Rodrigo de la Serna), and Marsella (Luka Peros). You also see Inspector Alicia and Gandí (José Manuel Poga).
Remind me: what happened in season 3?
A lot of things! But we'll summarize the most important points.
The Professor and Raquel/Lisbon teamed up with their original crew to rob the Bank of Spain both in honor of Berlín, and to demand authorities release Rio. The thieves wanted to get into the vault and melt down the gold that's stored there, and to enter the secret compartment where all the Spanish government's secrets are kept.
As soon as Denver walked out of the bank with the red boxes containing top-secret details, the negotiators knew they would have to give into the primary demand of the robbers: Return Rio safely. The heist, however, derailed from there. Nairobi was shot in the chest by the police after Alicia tricked her into standing by a window to see her son for the first time since he was taken away from her years ago.
And the ultimate blow? Alicia tricked the Professor into believing that Lisbon was executed by the police, forcing him to break his one rule about not killing anyone. The Professor told Palermo, "This is no longer a heist or about defying the system, it's a war." The crew acts accordingly: Rio and Tokio launch a rocket-propelled grenade at an army tank that was about to enter the bank.
It's only after the Professor gives these drastic orders that you see Lisbon is alive and being taken into police custody. Season 3 ends with Tokio saying, "And that's how the war began."
Season 3 of La Casa de Papel was a massive hit.
eason 3 of La Casa de Papel broke records by having the best first-week global result ever for a Netflix non-English series, according to Variety. It is also officially the most-watched Netflix series or film of all time in any language, including English, in countries around the world like France, Italy, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Portugal, and "many others," according to Diego Ávalos, direction of originals in Spain.
According to Netflix, La Casa de Papel was also the streaming service's third most-watched original TV show, right behind Stranger Things and Umbrella Academy. It's been watched by 44 million people, according to The New York Times.
Excited for the epic series to return? Us, too. Here's everything else we know about season 4 so far.
What will season 4 be about?
Things have taken an unexpected turn for the Professor, Lisbon, and the thieves. Usually when everything goes wrong, the Professor comes through with a backup plan—but this time, he is out of options. His love for Lisbon (another one of his rules that he broke) led him astray. All bets are off for season 4.
