The third series of Money Heist was released in July last year so fans have been eagerly awaiting new episodes ever since. Thankfully though, the wait is now over as the Netflix drama has returned and looks as explosive as ever, with the introduction of a new character. Here’s what we know about Manila so far.
Warning: This article contains spoilers from Money Heist season 3.
Money Heist was left on a massive cliffhanger as the robbers started shooting at the police before barricading themselves in the Royal Bank of Spain.
But besides from the actual heist itself, Nairobi (played by Alba Flores) was shot after the police lured her out by threatening her son.
So already the future was looking pretty dim for one member of the team.
Rio (Miguel Herrán) is back with the team after they negotiated they would let some of the hostages go in exchange for him.
Girlfriend Tokyo (Úrsula Corberó) was delighted to have him back but when he found out what had happened between her and Denver (Jaime Lorente), he swiftly ended things with her.

Meanwhile, the professor (Álvaro Morte) and Raquel (Itziar Ituño) are now together and were drawn back into doing another heist in a bid to rescue Rio.
They decided to take on the heist from a secret location but when the police found out where they were hiding, Raquel hid in the farmhouse.
The next thing the professor heard was gunshots so he assumed she was dead.
Little does he know she is actually still alive and was just taken in for questioning by the officers.
The fourth series of Money Heist starts right where the third series finished, with the majority of the team locked inside the bank.
Who is Manila in Money Heist season 4?
Like with every character involved in the heists, everyone is given an alias to use rather than their real names.
So when Rehén (Belén Cuesta) is first introduced in the first episode of the new season, she is referred to as Manila which is in the Philippines.
She must be someone that the professor trusts for him to allow a new member to join, especially in the middle of a new heist.
But this isn’t the first time she has appeared in the series.

According to the actress’ IMDB page, Rehén also featured in a couple of episodes of the previous series.
These episodes in the third series were called La deriva and Pequeñas vacaciones.
However, it does now seem like she has got a more permanent position on the team, now also wearing a red boiler suit.
The actress has previously been in predominantly Spanish television shows such as Paquita Salas, Mira lo que has hecho and Ella es tu padre.

In a description of Cuesta’s character, it says she is a “godchild of Moscow and Denver’s childhood friend”.
The description reads: “She is a transwoman who joins the gang and poses as one of the hostages during the robbery of the Bank of Spain.”
Fans of the series are just going to have to watch the entirety of series four though to find out even more about new robber Manila.
Money Heist season 4 is now available to watch on Netflix.
