‘Money Heist’ Season 4: Netflix Release Date & What to Expect

Money Heist (La Casa de Papel) – Picture: Netflix

Money Heist is returning to Netflix for season 4 that’s reportedly due for release in January 2020. The explosive Spanish series is among the most popular titles on Netflix so here’s what we know about Money Heist season 4 and when it’ll be on Netflix.

The renewal comes long before part 3 has even aired and comes at a bit of a surprise given that Alex Pina is working on another Netflix Original series due out in 2020. Alex Pina is a name you’ll be seeing on Netflix for many years to come given he signed an exclusive deal with Netflix last year.

The news came from a press conference last week where Alex Pina confirmed the fourth part of the show had already begun filming.

One quick note is that Netflix technically classes each season as a part. For the purpose of this article, we’ll refer to part 4 as season 4.

Money Heist became an instant success after Netflix picked it up to air internationally. The first two seasons had aired on Antenna 3 in Spain before becoming a full Netflix Original for season 3. Season 3 of Money Heist is due out on Netflix on July 19th, 2019.

Now a week or so after the release of Money Heist season 4, Netflix has released viewing stats for the show and it’s impressive. Over 34 million have tuned in to watch the show across the world. The show was also frequently mentioned in Netflix’s recent investor relations video in saying it was a key driver.


Since part 3 of Money Heist released, they’ve actually added more runtime to one of the episodes. That’s because on the first edit, the team behind the show removed a segment featuring footballing legend Neymar. That’s since been re-added meaning it’s time to dive in for a rewatch.

Also, the famous writer Stephen King (who has a great selection of Netflix picks, by the way) requested a fourth season with the official Twitter account responding as follows:


Speaking recently as to whether the show was going to come back for a subsequent further two seasons Alex Pina said the following (translated):

“It was a complicated pulse, there were many reasons not to return. On the one hand, it was a short and concluded series about a robbery. On the other hand, the protagonists end up being millionaires and putting them together for another robbery seemed something remotely impossible, but we realized that this was a band with different characteristics than we see in the stories of perfect robberies,”

What to expect from Money Heist season 4

Warning: spoilers for season 3 follow so if you haven’t caught up, this is your last warning. 

Let’s quickly run through the events of Money Heist Part 3. The band is back together again to perform an even bigger heist than the first one. All of it, however, is a ruse to try and rescue one of their members who has been captured.

Fast forward to episode 8 and we get a glimpse that the stakes have been upped dramatically. It’s an all-out war.

The Professor believes Raquel to be dead and calls for DEFCON 2 which results in the use of RPG’s against a tank rolling into storm the Bank of Spain.

Nairobi’s fate looks bleak given her bullet wound and the Professor’s plan is seemingly up in the air with the new police negotiator firmly in control. Some fans have speculated the fact that Nairobi failed to appear in a recent recap could mean she’s now done for.

We’re expecting to hopefully see the inevitable escape or, as it’s looking like at this point, the demise of the crew.

When will season 4 of Money Heist release on Netflix?

The good news here is that Alex Pina confirmed that filming and production directly followed part 3 which wrapped up earlier this year. That means we can definitely expect part 4 to be added to Netflix in due course.

Thanks to Cadena 3 with an interview with one of the actors in the series, we know that not only has season 4 wrapped filming but that it’s due for release in January 2020. According to one source, January 18th is the current date speculated. That seems unrealistic to us given that most Netflix Originals arrive on a Friday.

As the official account for La Casa de Papel states, don’t believe everything you read on the internet!

You can hear the cast talk in more depth in this video below but it’s only available in Spanish.

Nothing official has been announced just yet and we’ll update once we learn of the official release.

Will season 4 of Money Heist be the final season?

Given how the story is going, we’re expecting the story to wrap up for at least this heist by the end of next season.

Given Netflix’s name convention around the parts and seasons, it’s not outside the realm of possibility that we could see the series become an anthology like how Narcos on Netflix operates.

It’s fair to say we’re not the only ones now very excited for the next and possibly final season of Money Heist.

Álex Pina is working on multiple other Netflix projects

As we mentioned above, Álex Pina is working on two upcoming series.

White Lines is a new series is a new mystery crime series where a woman looks to solve the mysterious death of her brother in Ibiza. The other upcoming series, Sky Rojo, is in early development.
