Now Spanish site Marca has claimed Netflix has signed up for another two seasons of Money Heist, striking the deal before the fourth season premiered.
Referring to the show by it's original title, Le Casa de Papel, script coordinator Javier Gomez Santander recently told El Mundo: "With La Casa De Papel, we go game by game, like Simeone.
“Chapter by chapter, sequence by sequence, line by line.
“We do not ever consider how long the show can last. If we got to know the scope of the phenomenon, we wouldn’t have thought to kill Berlin.”
While Netflix is yet to officially confirm a fifth and sixth season, the show's creator Alex Pina recently hinted fans could also be treated to spin-off series.
He told Oprah Magazine: "We do have many possibilities for some spinoffs, yes, and I think that's thanks to the strong and powerful identities of the characters.
“We’ve always looked for characters to have a very complex, layered design."
Discussing which characters he would like to explore more, he added: "I think Arturito could have a black comedy.
“Berlin’s case for his own show is very clear; he’s a misogynist, a psychopath, egocentric, a narcissist, a delinquent, a rapist.
“But still there are lots of people who adore him, because he values friendship, loyalty or fraternity.
"From Nairobi to El Profesor…Denver is yet another character with his own charm. I would love to write all of them as spinoffs!"
Money Heist seasons 1-4 are available to stream on Netflix now.
