Also known as ‘La Casa De Papel’ this Spanish Netflix Original first debuted on the 25th of December 2017 as a limited series split up into two parts. It was met with great reviews but will fans be seeing the second season coming to Netflix anytime soon?
Like most of the foreign titles similar to this, Money Heist isn’t quite a full Netflix Original and was created for the Spanish network ‘Antena 3‘ by Álex Pina. It originally aired in Spain the 2nd of May, until being later bought by Netflix and internationally distributed on Christmas day. Netflix also re-edited the 9 episodes in season 1 into a whole 13.
The series follows a mysterious and ambitious man named “The Professor” who sets out in organising one of the biggest heists to ever occur. In order to carry out the operation, he recruits a varied gang with nothing to lose in order to enter the Royal Mint of Spain and hopefully walk about with 2,400 million euros.
Season 2 Renewal Status
But with only 1 season of Money Heist being available currently to stream on Netflix, the main question fans have been asking is “when will season 2 come?”. The second season began airing in October 2017 in Spain but is yet to arrive internationally via Netflix.
Official Renewal Status: Renewed (Last updated: 14/02/2017)
Well as season 2 already exists, we can pretty safely assume that because of the show being a partial Netflix original, the series will be coming back to Netflix at some point in the future.
But will the show continue after season 2? This is obviously hard to predict as we haven’t seen the final episode, but because of the show being a limited series, it is likely that this will be the definitive end of the story.
When will season 2 of Money Heist be on Netflix?
Now the main question everyone wants answering is when is the second season is coming to the streaming service. Partial original’s like this can often come a significant time after their first release in their home country, which can make it hard to estimate a date. For example, the first season of Money Heist came to Netflix 7 months after the Spanish release.
From this we can estimate season 2 will probably follow a pretty similar schedual and will arrive around between June and August of 2018. If we hear any more on release dates or any information on a possible season 3, we will be sure to keep you in the loop.
Netflix Language Options
As usual, Netflix supplies some great options for watching foreign series like La casa de papel if you don’t speak Spanish.
You can either have it dubbed over in English, French, German, or Italian. But if you’re the sort of viewer that prefers listening to the show in the original dialect, Netflix also do a great job with easy to read subtitles.
