Netflix renews Money Heist for fifth and final season

The heist is coming to an end.

Netflix has renewed the uber-popular Spanish heist drama series Money Heist for a fifth season.
It will also be the series’ final season.

The streaming giant revealed the news on its official social media handles.

A picture posted on the handles showed a Salvador Dalí mask, broken, and lying on the ground. The caption read, “Do you have your mask ready? You’re going to need it one last time 💰 #MoneyHeist Season 5, confirmed ✅.”

Money Heist Season 5 will be a 10-episode season.

Talking about the final season, showrunner Álex Pina said, “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.”

Production on Season 5 will begin Monday in Denmark before filming in Spain and Portugal.

The Professor and his team’s world will have some new faces in it next season and Pina says audiences will get to know Denver’s childhood friend Manila (Belén Cuesta) much better over the final 10 episodes. He also teased a standoff between Sierra and The Professor.

Money Heist is one of Netflix’s most popular shows of all time and it is also the most popular non-English series from the streamer.

Part 4 of the crime drama, which premiered in April 2020, was watched by 65 million accounts in the first four weeks of release — that’s a million more than Tiger King, which premiered a month earlier, and just two million less than Stranger Things 3, which debuted in summer 2019.
