The trailer opens right where season 3 left off: Nairobi is fighting for her life, Lisbon is in police custody, and The Professor is on the run. But in a plot twist, it looks like one of the bank’s guards, Gandía, has escaped and disconnected The Professor’s cameras. Gandía eventually makes his way back into the bank to sabotage the heist and target the thieves, capturing Tokio and bounding her hands in chains.
But perhaps the most surprising shot of the trailer is of Berlín, who looks very much alive as he is telling a man to “hold on.” Could this mean that he survived the shots at the end of season 2? Or is this just another flashback?
The final shot of the trailer is of Palermo and The Professor. “This is more than just a heist,” he says. “You know that very well.”
The official Instagram for the show teased the trailer on March 4, where it has otherwise been building the (already high) anticipation for the new season. The account was recently “hacked” by Inspector Alicia Sierra (played by Najwa Nimri), who was introduced in season 3 and can be seen offering Lisbon a heartbreaking proposition in the season 4 trailer: sell out The Professor or lose your family. Alicia censored the account — “if you are with [the Professor] , you are not with me” — but on March 3, the account was restored with “a message for the resistance.” The Professor appeared and called out the police’s failed campaign to discredit the group, and he warned fans not to be fooled.
To quote the new trailer, “let the chaos begin.”
