‘Money Heist: Korea’: What to know about Netflix’s new crossover series

“Money Heist” (also known as “La Casa de Papel”) thrived on Netflix after a short-lived stint on Spanish TV,

and the platform quickly capitalized on the hype with a documentary titled “Money Heist: The Phenomenon.”

When the show ended its five-season run last year, Netflix put out another documentary, “Money Heist:

From Tokyo to Berlin,” featuring the actors and crew discussing the end of the beloved series.

But that was not truly the end of “Money Heist,” which takes on new life, yet again, with the newly released “Money Heist: Korea — Joint Economic Area.”
