Money Heist returns to Netflix for the fourth season tonight. The explosive Spanish series is among the most popular titles on Netflix so here’s what we know about Money Heist season 4 including what to expect from the next chapter, who’s returning, the trailer and everything else we know so far.
Money Heist season 4, which was renewed before the third episode aired, was announced well in advance. It was announced ahead of time by the showrunner and creator, Álex Pina. Álex Pina is a name you’ll be seeing on Netflix for many years to come given he signed an exclusive deal with Netflix last year (we’ll run through his other Netflix projects shortly).
Netflix categorizes each season technically as a separate part. For the purpose of this article, we’ll refer to part 4 as season 4.
After Netflix acquired Money Heist, it became a huge success. Before becoming an original Netflix series, the first two seasons aired in Spain on Antenna 3. The third season of Money Heist was released by Netflix on July 19, 2019.
The show was watched by more than 34 million people around the globe. The show is also frequently mentioned in Netflix’s investor relations video in saying it was a key driver in international growth.
Alex Pina, when asked recently if the show would return for two more seasons, stated the following (translated).
“It was a complicated decision, there were many reasons not to return. On the one hand, it was a short and concluded series about a robbery. On the other hand, the protagonists end up being millionaires and putting them together for another robbery seemed something remotely impossible, but we realized that this was a band with different characteristics than we see in the stories of perfect robberies,”
The series will arrive in Los Angeles at midnight on April 3, 2020, as with all Netflix Originals. Just in case you’re not living on the West Coast, we’ve got our trusty table of every Netflix region below.

Money Heist Season 4 trailer was released March 5, and it gave us our first glimpse at the future of Money Heist.
Tokyo is the one narrating, stating that Professor Has lost his mind. We also get our first glimpse of what Raquel will do in season 4. She’s offered the chance to get her old life back.
We also see a lot of action shots throughout the trailer. This suggests that this will be an action-packed, fast-paced fourth installment.
We received the official poster of season 4 shortly after we released the trailer.
Warning: spoilers for season 3 follow so if you haven’t caught up, this is your last warning.
Let’s quickly run through the events of Money Heist part 3.
They are back again together to carry out a bigger heist than their first. The whole thing is just a scam to rescue Rio, one of the band members who was captured by authorities.
We see the drama unfold in episode 8. It’s an all-out war between the authorities and our gang with a newly pregnant woman at the helm trying to bring them all in.
The Professor believes Raquel to be dead and calls for DEFCON 2 which results in the use of RPG’s against a tank rolling into storm the Bank of Spain where the gang is held up.
Nairobi’s fate looks bleak given her bullet wound and the Professor’s plan is seemingly up in the air with the new police negotiator firmly in control. Some fans have speculated the fact that Nairobi failed to appear in a recent recap could mean she’s now done for. She was confirmed, however, to be returning after being likely injured in the official date reveal (see above).
We’re expecting to hopefully see the inevitable escape or, as it’s looking like at this point, the demise of the crew.
In terms of the tone, the creators confirmed that it’s going to be slightly different going into part 4. Here’s what they had to say in an interview (translated to English via Google Translate)
“I think the next season will be a bombshell for many reasons. We came from the third season with a feeling of vertigo, because it was the first one we produced for Netflix, we had used up a first robbery and we had to show that we could design a new one with more adrenaline and strength. I think we were so worried about that we got a lot of rhythm and milestones. In this fourth season what we propose is to stop a little, lower the piston to be able to dramatically savor some characters and then return to hit a burst in a part of the middle of the season. It is a very special season to be able to taste it and with very powerful bombs. ”
The creators decided to make an explosive third installment in order to entice people back into Money Heist. Season 4 however, will be slower and more focused on the characters.
Netflix announced the release of Money Heist as part of their slate of Spanish-language titles on January 30, 2020.
According to the documentary, it will be reflective in nature and reflect on the worldwide impact of the series. As part of the April 2020 new releases announcement, we got the full name of the documentary and its set to be called “Money Heist: The Phenomenon”.
The following people have been confirmed as participating in the documentary:
The documentary will arrive on Netflix on the day of season 4’s release date.
It is not yet clear if season 4 of Money Heist will be the last. We’ve heard rumors that work is already ongoing on a fifth part but nothing has yet to be confirmed.
As we mentioned above, Álex Pina is working on two upcoming series as part of his output deal with Netflix.
White Lines, a brand new series that focuses on mystery crimes and a female detective who tries to find the truth behind her brother's mysterious death in Ibiza. Sky Rojo is another series in development.
Before we depart, if you’ve ever wondered what The Professor sounds like speaking English, this mashup between Netflix’s 6 Underground and Money Heist will fulfill that fantasy.
