New Money Heist Season 5 Stills

Money Heist 'Season 5 Wraps for Netflix - Deadline

Money Heist is a Spanish crime drama television series created by Álex Pina. The series traces two heists prepared long ago and directed by the professor, one at the Royal Mint of Spain and the other at the Bank of Spain. The narrative is told in real time and relies on flashbacks, time jumps, hidden character motivations, and an unreliable narrator for complexity. The series subverts the heist genre by being told from the perspective of a woman, Tokyo, and having a strong Spanish identity, where the emotional dynamics compensate for the perfect strategic crime.

During the Geeked event, never-before-seen footage from Money Heist Season 5 has been released! You can view them below:

Umbrella Academy Season 3 Episode Titles Revealed

Umbrella Academy reportedly renewed for season 3 on Netflix - what's new on Netflix

The Umbrella Academy is a streaming superhero television series created for Netflix by Steve Blackman and developed by Jeremy Slater. It is based on the comic book series of the same name written by Gerard Way. The show takes place in a world where 43 women across the globe give birth simultaneously at 12:00 p.m. on October 1, 1989, though none of them show any sign of pregnancy until labor begins. Seven of the children are adopted by eccentric billionaire Sir Reginald Hargreeves. He turns the Hargreeves siblings into a team of superheroes he calls “The Umbrella Academy”.

Umbrella Academy fans who were expecting the much-hyped Season 4 renewal announcement likely left today’s Geeked disappointed, as no such announcement was made. We also weren’t able to see any footage from Umbrella Academy Season 3, although that could be seen as COVID-19’s fault. What we got, however, were the Season 3 episode titles. They are listed below:

  1. Meet the family
  2. The biggest ball of string in the world
  3. Pocket full of lightning
  4. Kugleblitz
  5. The cutest cut
  6. Worry
  7. Auf Wiedersehen
  8. Wedding at the end of the world
  9. Sixt Bells
  10. Oversight
