New Money Heist Season 5 Stills

Money Heist' Season 5 Wraps For Netflix – Deadline

Money Heist is a Spanish heist crime drama television series created by Álex Pina. The series traces two long-prepared heists led by the Professor, one on the Royal Mint of Spain, and one on the Bank of Spain. The narrative is told in a real-time-like fashion and relies on flashbacks, time-jumps, hidden character motivations, and an unreliable narrator for complexity. The series subverts the heist genre by being told from the perspective of a woman, Tokyo, and having a strong Spanish identity, where emotional dynamics offset the perfect strategic crime.

During the Geeked event, some never-before-seen stills of Money Heist season 5 were released! You can view them below:

Umbrella Academy Season 3 Episode Titles revealed

The Umbrella Academy' Reportedly Renewed for Season 3 at Netflix - What's on Netflix

The Umbrella Academy is a superhero streaming television series created for Netflix by Steve Blackman and developed by Jeremy Slater. It is based on the comic book series of the same name written by Gerard Way. The show is set in a world where 43 women around the world give birth simultaneously at 12:00 PM on October 1, 1989, despite none of them showing any sign of pregnancy until labor began. Seven of the children are adopted by eccentric billionaire Sir Reginald Hargreeves. He turns the Hargreeves siblings into a superhero team that he calls “The Umbrella Academy.”

Fans of Umbrella Academy who were expecting the much-rumored season 4 renewal announcement probably left today’s Geeked disappointed, as no such announcement was made. We also didn’t get to see footage of Umbrella Academy season 3, though that could be seen as COVID-19’s fault. What we did get though, is the episode titles of season 3. They are listed below:

  1. Meet the Family
  2. The World’s Biggest Ball of Twine
  3. Pocket Full of Lightning
  4. Kugleblitz
  5. The Kindest Cut
  6. Marigold
  7. Auf Wiedersehen
  8. Wedding at the End of the World
  9. Sixt Bells
  10. Oblivion
