dropped Money Heist season four last week with the US streaming platform serving up eight new episodes. The Spanish drama has become an international much like Latin American drama Narcos. Money Heist – or La Casa de Papel – follows a group of misfits who carry out a robbery orchestrated by the Professor (played by Álvaro Morte) first on the Royal Mint of Spain and later the Bank of Spain.


The show’s orange jumpsuits and the Salvador Dali masks worn by the gang have become iconic and a symbol of fighting against the capitalist system.

Many fans have already made their way through the eight new instalments and are eager to find out whether the drama will be returning.

There have been some early indications season five could be going ahead but streaming platform is yet to officially confirm the news.

Other fans are curious about how plausible the concept of the show could be in real-life.

Could Money Heist happen in real life?

Fans have been speculating on Reddit about whether the bank robbery could occur in reality.

One user called LeagueOfLucian posted: “No way in hell. The countries’ financial stability is on the line and no government in the world would risk losing such great large amount money.

“A few hundred hostages wont change anyones mind. The government would simply claim they are killing hostages inside after hearing gunshots and blame the civilian casualties on the robbers and get away with it [sic].”

While a second called BarazutoBuddha agreed, writing: “I don’t think It can happen to such great detail because there’s factoring in human behaviour. But the heists like the recent Brazil one and the mint robbery in Europe are close enough.”
