All good things must come to an end and Netflix has previously announced that their Spanish crime series “Money Heist” (“La Casa de Papel”) will end after its 5th series. Part 4 of the show was released in April 2020 and was made up of 8 episodes and we now have the release dates for season 5. The season will be split into two volumes with Volume 1 arriving September 3rd and the final episodes, Volume 2, on December 3rd. The final season is made up of 10 episodes and we are currently assuming 5 episodes in each volume.
Showrunner Álex Pina says: “We have spent almost a year thinking about how to destroy 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 season of La Casa de Papel. The war reaches its most extreme and savage levels, but it is also the most epic and exciting season”
In season 1 (parts 1 and 2) the story follows a group of robbers who attack the Royal Mint of Spain in order to print and escape with €2.4bn. The heist is led by ‘The Professor’ – an unknown leader running things from the outside. Season 2 (parts 3 and 4) is set a few years after the initial heist and sees the gang get back together along with some new members.
Part 4 begins in chaos: the professor thinks that Lisbon has been executed, Rio and Tokyo have blown up an army tank and Nairobi is struggling between life and death. The gang is going through one of its toughest moments and the rise of an enemy among its ranks will put the heist in serious danger.
