Netflix released the teaser for Money Heist: Korea - Joint Economic Area on January 18, which shows the upcoming series' version of the Professor, played by actor Yoo Ji-Tae. We also get a glimpse of who'll be playing the characters of Berlin, Tokyo, Moscow, Denver and others. The release date for the upcoming show has not been announced yet.

The teaser's description on YouTube highlights the bare bones of a plot Money Heist fans will be familiar with. "Disguised under the shadows of a mask, a crew of desperados band together under the leadership of a criminal mastermind known only as 'The Professor' to pull off the biggest heist Korea has ever seen."

Money Heist, also known as La Casa De Papel, came to an end in December after running for five seasons.

The wildly popular show is already getting another spin-off. In December, its creators announced an upcoming series that will feature Berlin as the lead character in 2023 and will focus mainly on Berlin and his life apart from the nine other robbers.
