It almost took an eternity but Netflix first acknowledged officially that season 5 of Money Heist is coming in August 2020. Sadly, they also confirmed that “the heist comes to an end” meaning that season 5 will be the final installment of the hit Spanish series.
Alexa Pina said the following regarding the renewal:
“We’ve spent almost a year thinking about how to break up the band. How to put the Professor on the ropess. 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.”
When will season 5 of Money Heist be release on Netflix?
After numerous rumours of a September 2021 release date, it was finally confirmed on May 24th but that it will be split into two halves again.
Season 5 volume 1 of Money Heist will arrive on September 3rd, 2021 Season 5 volume 2 of Money Heist will arrive on December 3rd, 2021.
Money Heist currently holds the current record of being the most-watched non-English title on Netflix. Once again, for the fourth season, the series smashed all of the previous records it set. The fourth part of Money Heist managed to rack up an incredible 65 million views.
Before we move onto what we know about season 5, you should check out the accompanying documentary released on April 3rd, 2020, called Money Heist: The Phenomenon. It documents the meteoric rise of the series with guests including Ted Sarandos as well as much of the cast and the creators. It gave us some stunning insights including the fact the show was almost axed.
Speaking about what they hope to achieve with the final season of Money Heist, Álex Rodrigo, one of the directors on the series has stated that he wants to “close the series in style, as the fans imagine and dream”.
