“Professor. Let’s get down to business. How are we going to break into the Bank of Spain?”

Nairobi (Alba Flores)

Three years after the robbery of the Money Factory, the professor and his team are back to rob the Bank of Spain. He wants to impose an ultimatum on the Spanish government to free Rio who is being tortured by the police.

The building in which the robbery took place, the Bank of Spain, is in fact the Nuevos Ministerios complex, which houses the Ministry of Public Works, among other things. The actual bank building is inaccessible to the cameras. The indoor scenes were shot in the Colmenar Viejo studio.

Instead of names of cities, the team members were initially to have names of planets. But one day, Álex Pina wore a T-shirt that said Tokyo. The production team loved this name and finally opted for city nouns.


The pilot episode of Money Heist was rewritten 52 times before it went into production. Álex Pina wanted to have a relentless story with coherent twists and turns, which is what makes the series so successful today.
