There’s this sense of beauty when a Netflix phenomenon like Money Heist or La Casa De Papel is officially announced to be coming back to the streaming platform. Unfortunately, its return will be marking the last of its series––the last of a fruitful, eventual 5 seasons. Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming season of Money Heist.
Let’s start with the basics. Crushing records left and right, the most notable of feats from the series is it being the most-watched non-English title on the platform. Considering there are plentiful international series and films on Netflix, this proves to be the one they deserve the most.
As for the renewal, it took quite a while before the streaming giant acknowledged the fifth installment of the series. They took it to their official Twitter account to say that “the heist comes to an end”––capping off what might be a part of Netflix’s top 10 of all time.

Alex Pina, the creator of the series, said in a statement on Netflix’s See What’s Next account:
“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.”
Before we dive into what’ll happen in the fifth season, let’s have a quick rundown on what happened in part 4. Spoiler alert, though, to anyone who hasn’t seen the fourth installment––this will get real tough to read.
At the end of part four, we saw Lisbon joining the rest of the crew inside the Bank of Spain. However, The Professor has been caught by none other than Alicia herself. So much has been said since the end of part four with fans even saying that either her pregnancy is fake and one that I hope to be true is that she was the ex-wife of Berlin as introduced in part four, Tatiana. Does the red hair really give it off?
No renewal dates just yet, though, as the pandemic is still in large and affecting the entertainment industry. Either way, we’ll be seeing this at some point in 2021––and that’s maybe a little bit hopeful.
