Money Heist Season 5: Everything You Need To Know About The Final Season

Is Money Heist Season 5 confirmed?

In short, yes. Netflix would literally be throwing money down the drain if they didn’t press on with one of their most popular originals of all-time.

Money Heist even pipped cult-hit Tiger King in a quarantine streaming tug-of-war during the month of April last year, copping 65 million viewers to Tiger King’s 64 million over the same period of time.

“It’s pure rock’n’roll,” said Álvaro Morte, plays the Professor, speaking of the binge-worthy popularity of Money Heist to The Guardian. “Once you see the first chapter of the show, you are lost in it.”

In August 2020, Netflix confirmed that Money Heist season 5 would be its last.

What will the fifth season of Money Heist be about?

[Spoilers Ahead]

Due to the nature of the show’s production, viewers have now seen two separate heists, each spanning across two seasons for a total of four parts. While the first heist more or less went to plan, the same ’t be said for how we left things inside the Bank of Spain at the end of season 4.

Nairobi’s (Alba Flores) execution was a major riff in the closing episodes, shattering the core team and exacerbating the chaos inside the bank even further. Then came the extraction of Raquel from the authorities which saw her dramatically re-enter the bank, while the Professor was simultaneously discovered by rogue police officer Alicia Sierra.

It’s not inconceivable to think that, given we’ve seen two heists for each pair of seasons, the upcoming Money Heist season 5 will share the same format, perhaps focusing on a new heist altogether, maybe even internationally. But that can’t be started until the loose ends of season 4 are tied up first. The show also loves to dabble in a non-linear approach to story-telling, so we could see Nairobi return (much like Berlin’s character did in the later seasons) after all.

Showrunner Álex Pina expanded on his struggles pulling together a final season of Money Heist.

“We’ve spent almost a year thinking about how to break up the band. How to put the Professor on the ropes. How to get into situations that are irreversible for many characters. The result is the fifth part of La Casa de Papel. The war reaches its most extreme and savage levels, but it is also the most epic and exciting season.”

Viewers also probably didn’t notice the unexpected easter egg waiting for them just seconds after the credits rolled on season 4 – a unique rendition of ‘Bella Ciao’ by Money Heist actress herself, Najwa Nimri (who plays the aforementioned police officer that outed the Professor in the final scene). Given that it was previously only sung on-screen by those loyal to the cause, could this be a sign that the Sierra will be joining the Professor and his gang for season 5? Only time will tell, but if so, that’d really shake up the dynamics of the next season.

Showrunner Alex Piña also floated the idea of ‘spinoffs’ with Oprah Magazine, which would be a likely outcome with season 5 of Money Heist aiming to wrap up the storyline in one succinct and dramatic send-off.

“We do have many possibilities for some spinoffs, yes, and I think that’s thanks to the strong and powerful identities of the characters. We’ve always looked for characters to have a very complex, layered design. So I think almost every character of Money Heist has a duality that we would like to see in a spinoff. We could watch any of them in other contexts.”

How many episodes will be in Money Heist season 5?

The fifth season will be two episodes longer than previous Money Heist seasons, as confirmed by Netflix’s Media Centre, wrapping up the series with 10 episodes.

What is Money Heist Season 5’s release date?

On March 15, 2020, Netflix hit pause on the production of all its original series due to the global pandemic. Similar setbacks were felt across the entertainment industry, with the likes of Netflix’s other binge-worthy crime series Bodyguard also suffering delays.

However, had to wait as little as nine months between Money Heist parts 3 and 4, which were likely shot together, meaning when it does return, we could be on for one hell of a ride.

Currently, there are a total of 31 episodes of La Casa de Papel on Netflix across four seasons. And if you really can’t get enough, we’d recommend watching Money Heist: The Phenomenon, a behind the scenes look at how the show was saved from a domestic-bound fate and revived to international fame.

Unlike other recent reports of the Money Heist season 5 release date being April 2021, it’s likely we’ll see the finale air on Netflix in September/October of this year.
