Netflix is all set to unlock the third season of the Spanish heist drama, ‘Money Heist.’ The streaming platform has unraveled the first trailer of the third installment.

The intriguing trailer features some stunning sequences hint at a power-packed heist action. The trailer, whose events unfold in the backdrop of a scenic island, declares ‘vacation is now over.’

‘Money Heist,’ which is named as ‘La Casa De Papel’ in Spanish-speaking countries, is one of Netflix’s biggest successes. The immense popularity and fan following prompted the world’s leading streaming platform to go for an original makeover for the third part.

According to a ‘Deadline’ report, the Spanish series’ original creator, Alex Pina, is also returning for the third round. Álvaro Morte plays El Professor, the mastermind behind every heist of an epic proportion. He hires eight seasoned thieves and executes a master-plan with the gang as his pawns.

The El Professor’s team of eight has been holding 67 people as hostages at the Royal Mint of Spain. While El Professor deals with the Spanish police and intelligence, the gang prints the billions of Euros with which they hope to eventually abscond.

All of the thieves have code names inspired from metros around the world. They are Tokyo, played by Úrsula Corberó who narrates the events as they unfold, Rio, played by Miguel Herrán who is a hacker and Tokyo’s love interest, Moscow, played by Paco Tous, an ex-minor at his middle-ages, and Denver, played by Jaime Lorente who is Moscow’s son.

The team is controlled and coordinated from outside by the mastermind El Professor, played by Álvaro Morte. The criminals have a plan to print their own currency without harming anyone, which they can’t follow for some dramatic developments caused by weird characters.

To add drama into the already dramatic plot, there is Raquel Murillo, played by Itziar Ituño, who is the National Police Corps inspector and in charge of the negotiation. While she deals with the tricky gang and their mastermind on one hand, there is an abusive ex-husband to deal with on the other hand.

There is a Mint employee among hostages, who is pregnant with her married supervisor’s baby. The most sensitive among the hostages is the teen daughter of the British ambassador to Spain. The gang has a red overall dress code. They also make the hostages dress identically so that the rescue team will mistake the hostages with the heist team. The criminals also wear creepy Salvador Dalí masks.

The entire premises promise a stunning heist series. And it worked with the Spanish viewers when more than four million watched its premiere. ‘Money Heist’ was first aired on Spain’s Antena 3 network, which planned the series as a limited edition. But its immense popularity and instant success caught Netflix’s attention.

The world’s leading streaming platform acquired the series foreseeing its global as a cult heist flick. Netflix re-cut, dubbed and polished it according to the tastes of its global subscribers. Soon after it started streaming on Netflix in December 2017, ‘Money Heist’ became the most-watched non-English-language series in it. In April 2018, the series even pulled down ‘Stranger Things.’

After the global success raid of season 1 and season 2, ‘Money Heist’ has El Professor plotting new heist plans. The third part is lined up by Netflix for a July 19, 2019 release. ‘Money Heist’s’ success story on Netflix points at a cultural phenomenon unfolding before us.
