Lebanese recording artist, Elissa sent fans into a frenzy with her new tweet after it was implied that she will be joining the cast of Netflix's hit series “La Casa de Papel” (Money Heist).

“I am ready to be part of the gang with the professor and the team! Thank you @NetflixMENA and @lacasadepapel. Nairobi, we’re coming to save you. Love, Beirut!” she wrote on Twitter.

The singer confused fans after posting a picture of a gift that she received from Netflix.

The package included one of show’s infamous Salvador Dali masks and a red card with personalized messages, which said: “Something broke in Professor during the third season, which left you surprised. But have hope, because the fourth season will make you the happiest one [referencing to one of her songs]. To the Queen of emotions, or now we could call you Beirut.”

The 46-year-old recently announced that her upcoming album will be her last, so, is this a new career move for the artist?

The series first aired on May 9, 2017, while season two hit the platform on October 16, 2017. But then it took almost two years for season three to return to Netflix on July 19, 2019.

The plot revolves around a criminal mastermind who goes by "The Professor" has a plan to pull off the biggest heist in recorded history -- to print billions of Euros in the Royal Mint of Spain. He recruits eight people with certain abilities and who have nothing to lose to help him carry out the plan. The thieves take hostages to aid them in their negotiations with the authorities, who strategize to come up with a way to capture the Professor. As more time elapses, the robbers prepare for a showdown with the police.

Money Heist received critical acclaim for its sophisticated plot, interpersonal dramas, the direction and for trying to innovate Spanish television.

The series, created by Álex Pina, was filmed in Madrid, Spain. Significant portions of part 3 were also filmed in Panama, Thailand and Florence, Italy.
