Money Heist on Netflix

Money Heist is likely one of the best foreign series on Netflix right now. The Spanish drama has everyone on the edges of their seats and as a result, you’re probably looking for some alternatives on Netflix while you’re waiting for the next season to release. Look no further as we’ve picked out five worthy binges after you’re all caught up with Money Heist. 

Here are five series you should check out if you love Money Heist on Netflix:

Narcos Netflix Original Series

Narcos is the closest original series you can come to Money Heist. The series features plenty of action like you’d expect in Money Heist but it also focuses heavily on the criminal aspect. The series follows different drug cartels and their efforts to hide their crimes. The first two seasons followed the biggest drug kingpin in the world, Pablo Escobar.

The series is spoken in both English and Spanish so if you’re used to Money Heist’s subtitles, you’ll have no problem jumping over.


Breaking Bad

When it comes to crime dramas, you couldn’t do much worse than one of the best-rated TV shows of all time. Starring Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, this series documents the rise of Heisenberg, a meth cook who becomes the best in the business.

Like Money Heist, the best thing about Breaking Bad is its wide range of characters. Later on in the series, you actually see a couple of heists in Breaking Bad too meaning it’s easy to make this recommendation.


El Ministerio Del Tiempo Netflix Original

Netflix has plenty of Spanish original series but El Ministerio Del Tiempo draws the most direct comparison. Although set in a more sci-fi environment, the show features strong performances from its actors and is also highly rated by critics and fans alike.

The series follows three officers who work for a secret agency who can travel in time and must to protect the world from intruders hoping to manipulate history.


Evil Genius: The True Story of America’s Most Diabolical Bank Heist Netflix Original

We’re venturing away from fiction for this pick. The docuseries looks at a true crime story which often takes weird plot twists. It starts with the death of a pizza man who robs a bank with a bomb around his neck and only gets more bizarre from then. A truly extraordinary docuseries which Netflix has become a pioneer in releasing.


White Collar

Although White Collar draws the least comparisons to Money Heist as the above, it’s still a smart and cleverly written TV show that should be watched by all. The series is about a captured criminal who helps the FBI catch other criminals including those committing robbery.
