Netflix Saved Money Heist From Being Cancelled with $2

Netflix had to pay only $2 to buy Money Heist, hence saving it from being cancelled. The series was considered a failure in Spain before Netflix swooped in.

It is hard to imagine that a show like Money Heist was about to scrapped, especially considering the success of the latest season in Pakistan. However, it is true – Netflix had to pay only $2 to buy Money Heist, hence saving it from being cancelled.

Screen writer Javier Gómez Santander told Spanish newspaper El Mundo that the series “was a failure” in Spain.

“Contrary to what it seems, the life of the series is the story of a failure. Antena 3 cut the number of planned chapters. The series maintained decent figures, but nothing special… The feeling was not flattering and I was already thinking about the next projects of the producer.”

This was the time when Netflix stepped in and saved Money Heist from being cancelled with $2, and gave the show its future on the streaming platform.

According to Left Bank Pictures head Andy Harries, “Literally, three months [after it was scrapped], this show that had been cancelled in Spain was bought by Netflix for literally two dollars… They bunged it out without any promotion and within two weeks, the thing was number one around the world.”

While it is difficult to imagine that this is true, it was a good thing that Netflix saw the potential in the Spanish show. Netflix without Money Heist would not be complete!
