Money Heist Season 4 is gearing up to be one of, if not the biggest show of 2020 on Netflix and people are desperate to know what’s going to happen in the upcoming season and when its release date will be on the streaming platform.
Well, the answer to that question is pretty simple really.
Money Heist Season 4’s release date is going to on April 3rd, 2020, which is going to be a big and important date for all fans of the Spanish-language show.
This incredible show, known as La Casa De Papel in Spain and the rest of Europe, has been a worldwide hit and people have so many questions about the upcoming season of this heist series.
What’s going to happen to The Professor? Is Raquel (also known as Lisbon) going to be OK? How’s Tokyo going to cope with the breakup? How’s this war going to play out? And most importantly, will Nairobi survive being shot by a sniper?
I will try to answer that final question in an upcoming article, but I will say that it doesn’t look too good for the character’s who’s become most people’s favourite over the first three seasons.
This show was picked up by Netflix after the first two seasons, and it’s a good thing they did pick it up.
Money Heist Season 4’s Release Date Has Been Revealed
The first two seasons of Money Heist were made by Antena 3 in association with Vancouver Productions in Spain and people at Netflix obviously took notice of the show’s popularity and did everything they could to bring it over to their streaming service.
It’s widely popular across the whole of the world, especially in Europe and Latin America, but it’s starting to get a pretty big following here in the UK as well.
The fact that Netflix has greenlit a fourth season is testament to its popularity. Most Netflix shows don’t get to Season 4, so we should count ourselves lucky that we’re getting one.
The series was created by screenwriter Álex Pina and director Jesús Colmenar during their years of collaboration since 2008, and they haven’t really looked back since.
When Netflix acquired the streaming rights to the show, they ended up re-cut it into 22 episodes of around 50 minutes length.
This meant that cliffhangers and scenes had to be divided and moved to other episodes, which you might have thought would have proven to be difficult, but it wasn’t as tough and derailing and you might have first thought.
The fact that Money Heist is full of perpetual plot twists helped things in this regard.
Netflix then dubbed the series and changed its name from La Casa de Papel (directly translated into House of Paper in English) to Money Heist for distribution in the English-speaking world.
It’s pretty clear why they opted not to go for House of Paper due to its closeness to their other hit show, House of Cards.
Money Heist has become one of the world’s most popular shows
Netflix ended up releasing the first part of Money Heist on December 20th 2017 without any promotion.
The second part was then made available for streaming on April 6th 2018.
All these changes lead to Money Heist’s creator, Pina admitting that the viewer experience of the show on Antena 3 compared to Netflix as “very different”, yet he did say that the essence of the series was the same.
Despite having no dedicated marketing campaign on the streaming platform, Money Heist quickly became the most-watched non-English language series on Netflix in early 2018, within just four months of being added to the platform.
This came as a big surprise to the show’s creators because Money Heist was literally just dumped on the streaming platform with no promotion whatsoever, yet people still managed to find it and went mad for it.
The rest is now history and Money Heist is one of Netflix’s biggest offerings, especially outside of the English-speaking market, which is becoming a more and more important area for the streaming giants.
So, those of you who are up to date with Money Heist, you’re going to have to wait until April, April 3rd to be exact, until you can to watch Season 4.
The really good news is that Money Heist Season 4 won’t be the show’s last, as it was revealed by La Vanguardia that Netflix had order a fifth season.
The media outlet reported that Money Heist’s director Jesús Colmenar revealed, “That there is going to be a fifth [part] can be said”.
However, it’s still no official yet, as Money Heist creators Pina and Martínez Lobato would not discuss whether Season 5 was going to happen or not due to their confidentiality contracts.
All they said was that “someone knows there will be [a part 5], but we don’t.”
Money Heist Season 4’s release date is April 3rd, 2020 and will consist of eight episodes.
