Money Heist alum Álvaro Morte explained the reason why he won’t be reprising The Professor in any spinoffs of hit Netflix drama, including Berlin.

For nearly a decade, Morte played Sergio Marquina/ The Professor in Money Heist, who was introduced to viewers as the brains and leader of the operation. He was last seen by fans during the series finale, where he successfully managed to pull off his complicated escape plan for their Bank of Spain heist. Speaking with GamesRadar+, the Spanish actor expressed his protectiveness over The Professor, confirming that he doesn’t really see himself making a cameo in Netflix’s prequel spinoff Berlin. “I don’t think that I will be part of Berlin,” he said. “I mean, I love them, but in a way I want to kind of protect The Professor, it’s a character that gave me so many beautiful things, a character that I love so much, and I wouldn’t like to make just a cameo.”

Morte also shared how much love he has over Money Heist, revealing that he’s very happy and satisfied with how the original show wrapped up his character’s storyline. “I love this family, I’ve been with them for years, and I’m deeply in love with all of them. But, I think that I made what I had to make,” he continued. “I’m very happy with the ending of Money Heist and with the ending of my character in that project.”

Will Álvaro Morte Ever Consider Reprising Money Heist Role in the Future?
Even though he’s not yet ready to revisit The Professor in the near future, Morte admitted that he would be open to return to the Money Heist franchise after a decade or so for a sequel series that would reunite him with the original cast. “If, maybe in the future, they are coming with the whole band again, like the return of Money Heist within 10 years or something because of something that they create, that would be awesome,” Morte said, “But, I don’t know, you can never say no.”

Money Heist was created and executive produced by Álex Pina. Season 1 introduced a group of masked thieves wearing red overalls, who locked themselves inside the Royal Mint of Spain in order to print millions worth of money. Due to its worldwide success, it was renewed for two more seasons, which revolved around the team’s second major heist involving stealing gold from the Bank of Spain. The acclaimed series was also led by Úrsula Corberó as Tokyo, Itziar Ituño as Raquel Murillo/ Lisbon, Pedro Alonso as Berlin, Alba Flores as Nairobi, Miguel Herrán as Rio, Jaime Lorente as Denver, Esther Acebo as Stockholm, Darko Perić as Helsinki and more.

Prior to Berlin’s premiere, the original series also received a South Korean remake, Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area, set in an alternate history where North and South Korea had reunified. After wrapping up Money Heist in 2021, Morte joined the cast of Prime Video’s The Wheel of Time series, which is set to return for a third season. He is also currently starring opposite Sydney Sweeney in the psychological horror movie Immaculate, which serves as his big-screen acting debut in a Hollywood production.

Money Heist Seasons 1-3 are available for streaming on Netflix.
