Netflix released Money Heist: Korea — Joint Economic Area on June 24. The popular K-drama retells the story of the streamer's original Spanish series Money Heist (Spanish: La Casa de Papel). The remake premiered on Netflix with six episodes that are about an hour-long each, and as of July 1, Money Heist: Korea is #1 in 10 countries. Now, fans are wondering if more episodes will be released.
If you're one of those fans, consider this your guide to when you can expect new episodes of Money Heist: Korea — Joint Economic Area.
Will Netflix release new episodes of Money Heist: Korea — Joint Economic Area?
Netflix ordered 12 episodes of Money Heist: Korea, but only released the first six in June 2022, so it looks like the remake is following its predecessor in more ways than one.
The release schedule is similar to how the original Money Heist was released on the streaming service. Season 1 of the original show was divided into Parts 1 and 2, and Season 2 was divided into Parts 3 and 4, so yes, you can expect new episodes of this crime thriller to arrive on Netflix in the near future. With that in mind, it's likely that the next batch of 6 episodes will be referred to as Part 2 instead of Season 2, but Netflix hasn't officially confirmed this.
Is Money Heist: Korea Season 2 coming to Netflix in November 2022?
Money Heist: Korea Season 2 will not be released in October 2022, according to Netflix's list of upcoming movies and TV shows in November 2022. During the Tudum 2022 virtual event, Netflix didn't officially confirm when Season 2 will be released, but the streamer shared a new clip from the upcoming season, which you can watch below:
Is there a release date for Money Heist: Korea Season 2?
No, Netflix hasn't announced an official release date for the next 6 episodes of Money Heist: Korea. The streamer hasn't also officially confirmed if a new season will come after that. It's likely that the story will continue after the first heist of the K-drama since the original Money Heist featured a second heist.
The streaming giant officially confirmed that they're going to go ahead with a Korean Money Heist remake in December 2020. So, based on this timeline, it seems to take about a year to a year-and-a-half to produce a new season of Money Heist: Korea.
If Netflix quickly renews Money Heist: Korea for Season 2, it's likely that Season 2 will arrive in summer of 2023. Based on how the original Money Heist typically formats its episodes, it's likely that the theoretical new season would be split into Parts 3 and 4. Part 3 will likely be released in summer of 2023 or early 2024.
According to Newsweek, the next six episodes of the first season of Money Heist: Korea will arrive later in 2022. “Part 2 of Season 1 is slated for release in the last quarter of 2022 but an exact launch date has yet to be announced, said the spokesperson for Netflix,” said Newsweek, so the new episodes might arrive in December 2022.
