New Money Heist Season 5 Stills

Money Heist 'Season 5 for Netflix - Deadline

Money Heist is a Spanish crime TV series directed by Álex Pina. The series follows two long-prepared robberies under the professor’s direction, one on the Royal Mint of Spain and one on the Bank of Spain. The narrative is told in real time and is based on flashbacks, time jumps, hidden character motivations and an unreliable narrator for complexity. The series undermines the heist genre by narrating it from the perspective of a woman, Tokyo, and having a strong Spanish identity where emotional dynamics offset the perfect strategic crime.

During the Geeked event, some never-before-seen stills from the fifth season of Money Heist were released! You can view them below:

Umbrella Academy Season 3 Episode Title Revealed

Umbrella Academy is reportedly being renewed for season 3 on Netflix - Pyjama People

The Umbrella Academy is a superhero streaming television series created by Steve Blackman for Netflix and developed by Jeremy Slater. It is based on the comic series of the same name by Gerard Way. The show takes place in a world where 43 women around the world gave birth at the same time on October 1, 1989 at 12:00 p.m., although none of them showed signs of pregnancy by the time they went into labor. Seven of the children are adopted by eccentric billionaire Sir Reginald Hargreeves. He transforms the Hargreeves siblings into a superhero team that he calls “The Umbrella Academy”.

Umbrella Academy fans awaiting the rumored announcement of the season four extension likely left today’s geeked disappointed as no such announcement was made. We also did not see any footage of the Umbrella Academy season 3, although this could be viewed as a culprit for COVID-19. What we got, however, are the season 3 episode titles. They are listed below:

  1. Meet the family
  2. The largest ball of yarn in the world
  3. Bag full of lightning bolts
  4. Kügleblitz
  5. The loveliest cut
  6. Marigold
  7. Goodbye
  8. Wedding at the end of the world
  9. Sixt Bells
  10. oblivion
