The sereis is set to follow on from the dramatic cliffhanger which left the Professor (played by Alvaro Morte) in serious peril. Ahead of its return to screens, Express.co.uk has everything fans need to know about the fifth part of La Casa de Papel, from release date to plot.

When will Money Heist season 5 be released?

Fans will be pleased to learn Money Heist season five has officially been confirmed.

However, viewers of the hit show have also been dealt a devastating update about the future as showrunners revealed on July 31 that season 5 would be the last outing.

Netflix confirmed the upcoming series will be the “fifth and final part of La Casa de Papel”. 

Creator and Executive Producer Alex Pina said: “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”.

The final outing will feature 10 episodes as filming begins on August 3 in Denmark before heading to Spain and Portugal.

This news follows months of teasing from the show’s stars and creator Alex Pina.

Pina also recently released an image on Instagram confirming he had started writing the new show.

However, Netflix has not revealed anything officially about season five of the show, including any indication of a release date.

Looking back at the first outings of the show, season one was released in May 2017 before part two came out in October 2017.

Then fans were left waiting for 21 months before season three was finally released on Netflix in July 2019 with season four following nine months later in April 2020.

Both seasons one and two as well as three and four were filmed back-to-back which is why they were released close to each other.

This could mean something similar might happen with seasons five and six but based on the previous waits, viewers could be waiting until 2021 or 2022 to see more of the show.

Express.co.uk will update this article as soon as any more is revealed about Money Heist’s season five release date.

Who is in the cast of Money Heist season 5?

Most of the main heist members are expected to be back for season five of the Spanish drama.

This is epxetced to include Tokyo (played by Úrsula Corberó), Professor (Álvaro Morte), Lisbon (Itziar Ituño), Rio (Miguel Herrán), Denver (Jaime Lorente), Stockholm (Esther Acebo), Palermo (Rodrigo De la Serna), Helsinki (Darko Peric), Bogotá (Hovik Keuchkerian) and Marsella (Luka Peros).

As well as this, characters like Arturo (Enrique Arce), Alicia Sierra (Najwa Nimri), Manila (Belen Cuesta) and Gandia (Jose Manuel Poga) are all expected to return after their storylines ended on slight cliffhangers.

There has been no confirmation yet about whether Berlin (Pedro Alonso) will also return in flashbacks again in the new season but it’s likely he will be.

One character who won’t be returning, however, is Nairobi (Alba Flores) who was killed off in season four.

Some of the stars have already been confirming their return on Instagram with new images.

There are also some new cast members joining the show in unconfirmed roles – Sense8 star Miguel Ángel Silvestre and Patrick Criado.

Netflix has also released the first images of Criado with Berlin, which seem to suggest he might be part of the gang.

What will happen in Money Heist season 5?

WARNING: This section contains spoilers for Money Heist season 4.

There have been no plot details released yet for Money Heist season five has only just been confirmed.

However, Pina has teased there will be a war coming in the final outing in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly.

He said: “We are moving from a chess game – a mere intellectual strategy – to a war strategy: attack and contention.

“Adrenaline is within Money Heist’s DNA. Every thirty seconds things take place and disrupt the characters, a turn of the screw to the action. 

“The adrenaline mixed with feelings arising from absolutely complex, magnetic, unforeseeable characters will continue until the end of the heist to the Bank of Spain.

“However, the gang will now be pushed into irreversible situations, into a wild war. It is the most epic part of all the parts we’ve shot.”

As well as this, based on the end of season four, it seems like the new season will follow the heist members as they try to escape from the Bank of Spain.

In the final episode, Lisbon was reunited with the team inside the bank while Gandia was knocked unconscious.

As well as this, the show will have to deal with the massive cliffhanger left at the end of season four when Sierra found the Professor’s hideout.

In the final few moments, she held a gun to his head and said “checkmate” before the series cut to black.

Therefore, viewers will be desperate to know what will happen next to the beloved Professor.

There are some theories Sierra might kill the Professor as an act of revenge for Berlin.

Is there a trailer for Money Heist season 5?

No, there is no trailer yet for season five of Money Heist as the series is only just about to begin filming.

The trailer for season five launched just a few weeks before the show landed on Netflix.

Therefore, it seems like viewers might be waiting a while to see new footage from the show.

As soon as a trailer is released for season 5, Express.co.uk will update this article.
