René has never been seen on screen but has been referenced several times.

Patrick Criado’s Rafael – the son of deranged Berlin will also be making an appearance.

Rafael is determined not to follow in the footsteps of his late father, who was killed off in series two.

Money Heist creator Alex Pina recently claimed that the powers-that-be once requested Berlin be written out entirely.

Speaking to Hindustan Times, he said: “I had no intention of taking him out of the series. Someone said to me, ‘This character doesn’t fit with the times. You should take him out of the series’.”

“[He is] a misogynist, narcissist and psychopath in many ways… But we could have a character like that in the series and the audience could freely decide whose side they’re on, right?”

José Manuel Seda will also be introduced as the Sagasta, a ruthless Commander of the Special Forces of the Spanish Army, who plans on taking apart the Professor’s gang.
