Berlin will focus on the titular character’s planned heist to steal €44 million in Paris. The makers also released the trailer of the series which shows the past of the jewel thief who has been leading a carefree life. However things go haywire when he gets involved with the wife of the person he is targetting to steal from.
Berlin was one of the central characters in the Money Heist series, who appeared as Professor’s brother and mastermind of the heists planned. A famed jewel thief, Berlin was portrayed by Pedro Alonso, who will reprise his role in the prequel series.
