Say Hello to the New Characters From Season 5 of “Money Heist”

Money Heist will be back with a new season soon – and you know what that means: new characters! For Season 5, we can look forward to three new characters on the show. Get to know them a little bit here:

Rafael, Berlin’s Son

According to Berlin (Pedro Alonso), a child is “a nuclear warhead that’s going to destroy everything,” as he relayed to Rio (Miguel Herrán) in early episodes of part 1 of the series. Years later, audiences are introduced to Berlin’s son, Rafael, played by Patrick Criado. Rafael is now 31 years old, has studied computer engineering at MIT in Massachusetts, and is incredibly clear about one thing: he doesn’t want to be like his father.

René, Tokio’s First Love

“My name is Tokio. But when this story began, it wasn’t. This was me… and this, the love of my life. The last time I saw him I left him in a pool of blood with his eyes open.”  In Part 1 of la casa de papel we meet Tokio (Úrsula Corberó) holed up in a motorhome, running from the police and suffering an indescribable loss–the love of her life. Meet René (Miguel Ángel Silvestre, the man she started mugging with, with whom she traveled, enjoyed life, and the man she loved before Silene Oliveira discovered that sometimes things in her perfect little world can go terribly wrong.

Sagasta, Special Forces

Another new character coming into play this season is Sagasta (José Manuel Seda), Commander of the Special Forces of the Spanish Army. He is seasoned in countless international missions against the worst of the human species, which makes him precisely the same as the men he has killed. He is a born leader, whom his men will follow to the end if he asks them to because he is just like them. When he puts on the uniform, he becomes an analytical, cold, and ruthless mind, capable of going beyond any ethical or moral convention if the mission requires it.

Money Heist Part 5 Volume 1 premieres on Netflix on September 3, 2021.
