Before the finale was determined the script director Javier Gomez Santander told El Mundo (via NME) that they were still unsure of what length the show would continue for Money Heist Season 6.
“With La Casa de Papel We go game by game, much like Simeone. The show is played chapter by chapter. Sequence after sequence Line by line. We never think about what the duration of the production will run. If we knew the magnitude of the show it would have been a shock to take down Berlin.”
In the end, when it became clear that the time for closure was near, Pina and his team decided to end the story at an end, instead of continuing to tell the story to the point that the series was canceled for them.
On a recent set visit with the Indian Express, Pina explained the reason behind this further in a statement: “We’ve made over 2,000 minutes of entertainment with just two Heists. I think we’ve exhausted many character’s emotional pathways as well as their transformation arcs. We’ve covered a lot, and I believe it’s the right moment to come to an end. It’s a very cold season and I believe it’s better to leave earlier that later.”
The Money Heist Director and Executive Producer Jesus Colmenar added: “We have plenty of instances in the world of fiction of shows that we believe dragged on for over the course of. The smartest option to take when a show is at its peak of its popularity as Alex suggests is to go out with a bang and create the season distinctive in numerous ways.”
The actor Alvaro Morte echoed all this during a press event to and other journalists in which he explained that:
“In all meanings of the word the show is about to come to an end in the time it needed to come close to complete. This is the right timing. The characters aren’t being squeezed more, we’ve pulled the best out of them. I believe it’s a wise decision to end here.”
“I believe it’s also an opportunity to give them what they are entitled to,” he added. “We could have stretched the game a little more, but we’d be at risk of the whole thing going to rubble. Thus, leaving the stage at the top is a gift we present to our supporters.”
Then again, it’s not like the finales were cut short either. In an interview with The Esquire, Pina explained that he had to rewrite the final episode 33 times – yes, three – times to ensure it was perfect.
“The anxiety and stress of viewers are likely to be at their limits in this season. This also permits us to cut everything into large pieces. The previous things we’d done let us blast them into pieces. It’s been really difficult for us to end the series this way, but however it’s satisfying that the show is closing with the best season to date.”
While fans may be disappointed, as they might be at the Money Heist’s cancellation, it’s that its creators always placed the story above everything other considerations, and that they’re keen to make the finale something memorable for the viewers.
“It is different from the other seasons before,” Jesus promises. “And we’ve placed all of our eggs into one basket, so we can leave with the utmost of vigor.”
However, this doesn’t mean that The Money Heist‘s story has been completely concluded however. While the main show has been officially concluded, Pina has concocted many ideas to continue the series in the future..
The idea was first mentioned in 2020, when Pina stated to OprahMag.com that “we have a lot of possibilities for spin-offs I believe this is due to the solid and strong character identities”.
“We’ve always sought out characters that have a complicated, multilayered appearance,” he continued. “So I would say that nearly every character in the Money Heist has a dual nature we’d like to have in the form of a spin-off. We could also watch each of them from various settings.”
The article Pina continued to discuss the ways that all of the characters in the world, from Arturito to Nairobi to El Profesor are all candidates for solo ventures of various kinds. However, when the final episode airs the show, it has been confirmed that Berlin would be the initial person to venture off on his own in a spin-off planned for 2023..
“I’m extremely satisfied,” Pedro Alonso said when the news was announced during an event with live Q&A held on Nov. 30 (via TV Line) . “I am extremely content to meet people from across the globe and be surrounded by gratitude and such an unforgettable moment.
“We began this series by with a new approach and have always won since then. Our fans are our partners and we are grateful for that.”
This could be an odd choice considering the circumstances surrounding Berlin in the main show however, we think this spin-off is likely will be prequel to the show set prior to the happenings of the Money Heist‘s initial season. If any other actors from the series are featured will remain to be seen, however, we wouldn’t be shocked to see a few sly appearances happen at one time or another.
But that’s not all. The Berlin-based show was made public, it was confirmed that a remake of K-drama is currently in development at BH Entertainment and Zium Content. The Money Heist Money Heist Season 6 Korea,as it’s not officially known and has been confirmed as the main character will be Park Hae Soo, one of the actors who will be immediately recognisable as Cho Sang-woo to those who have seen Squid Game.
Hong-sun Kim will write the scripts composed by Kim Hwan Choe, Choe Sung-jun, and Ryu Yong-Jae. For those who love the original film, Pina is joining the cast as executive producer meaning that this remake should hopefully bring back the essence from La Casa de Papelwhile keeping making itbringing something fresh to the series.
Even though The Money Heist is coming close to a conclusion, viewers are actually getting the most beneficial combination of the Money Heist Season 6. Not only did the show come out with a bang, it is also likely that the next spin-offs will keep the same spirit as The Money Heist and not repeat what’s been seen before. This is crucial to the success of any heist in the context of it.
