After successfully becoming the first non-English language series to become an international cultural phenomenon, Money Heist’s last 5 episodes are finally on Netflix.
Money Heist blew the door open on non-English language series, making way for further growth in the international entertainment market with Korean series like Squid Game reaching record-breaking numbers and becoming Netflix’s most-watched show and Hellbound following soon after.
Developed by Spain’s Antena 3 network, Money Heist is about an unlikely group of thieves named after cities around the world who organise a number of elaborate heists. Their leader, The Professor, went on to become a cultural icon in Spain and around the world. The series’ popularity is likely due to the universally-appealing underdog story and the balance between what is good and bad, amongst other culturally-relevant facets of the series.
Earlier this week, news also made the rounds that the series’ enigmatic frontrunner Berlin will be getting his own spinoff on Netflix.
