The fifth season of La Casa De Papel (Money Heist) will be released in two volumes, according to a new announcement from Netflix. The first volume of the fifth – and, unfortunately, final season – will premiere on September 3, 2021. Volume two of season five will arrive on December 3, 2021.
“When we began to write Part 5 in the midst of the pandemic, we felt that we had to change what was expected from the ten-episode season and used every tool we could to create the sensation of a season finale or series finale in the first volume itself,” explained series creator Álex Pina. “We decided to work in an extremely aggressive genre, putting The Gang on the ropes. In Volume 2, we focus more on the emotional situation of the characters. It is a journey across their sentimental map that connects us directly to their departure.”
Netflix released the following synopsis of the upcoming fifth and final season:
“The gang has been shut in the Bank of Spain for over 100 hours. They have managed to rescue Lisbon, but their darkest moment is upon them after losing one of their own. The Professor has been captured by Sierra and, for the first time, doesn’t have an escape plan. Just when it seems like nothing else could go wrong, an enemy comes on the scene that is much more powerful than any they’ve faced: the army.
The end of the greatest heist in history is approaching, and what began as a robbery will turn into a war.”
