Itziar Ituño and Najwa Nimri are back to join in the shoot of Netflix’s Berlin. They will reprise their roles as Police Inspectors Raquel Murillo and Alicia Sierra. Both characters will appear in the upcoming spinoff for La Casa de Papel, which will premiere on Netflix this December.
Berlin focuses on the golden years of the character played by Pedro Alonso and tells the story of one of the most extraordinary heists he carried out along with a gang that’s brought to life by Michelle Jenner, Tristán Ulloa, Begoña Vargas, Julio Peña Fernández, and Joel Sánchez. The return of both Itziar Ituño and Najwa Nimri for the new series, will bode well for fans of Money Heist as it provides a sense of familiarity and continuation.
The 8 episodes of the series, created by Álex Pina (La Casa de Papel, Sky Rojo) and Esther Martinez Lobato (La Casa de Papel, Sky Rojo), are written by Álex Pina, Esther Martinez Lobato, David Barrocal, David Oliva, and Lorena G. Maldonado and will be directed by Albert Pintó (Sky Rojo, Malasaña 32), David Barrocal (Sky Rojo), and Geoffrey Cowper (Tercer Grado).
The series started production last October in Paris and is still currently being shot in Madrid.
There are only two things that are sure to turn a bad day into a great one: love, and a payday worth millions. They’re what keep Berlin going through his golden years, a time when he still has no inkling of his illness and hasn’t gotten trapped like a rat in the Spanish Mint. This is where he starts preparing one of his most extraordinary heists: making jewels worth 44 million disappear like some sort of magic trick. To do it, he’ll enlist the help of one of the three gangs he’s ever stolen with.
