The international Netflix phenomenon, Money Heist (also known as La Casa De Papel), is officially returning for a fifth and final season on Netflix in 2021. Here’s the latest and everything we know so far about Money Heist season 5, including the path to renewal, its potential release date, production updates, and why we won’t be getting a season 6.
One of the most popular and highly rated series of all time is Money Heist, which has fans all over the world who have watched all the four seasons of this series. The ‘Professor’ character in this series has a huge fan following worldwide.
Season 4 of Money Heist premiered last year on Netflix during the lockdown and had a great viewership, and season 5, which happens to be the final season of this series, had been expected to premiere soon.
It took an eternity, but Netflix officially acknowledged 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.
Let us recall some of the key moments from season 4 to create a link for the 5th season. The biggest challenge facing the gang is that The Professor is now the one who has been caught red-handed. With a gun to him, the series cuts to credits with a new interpretation of Bella Caio. Also, Lisbon has now joined the rest of the gang in the Bank of Spain.
The gang now has to work on the final stages of the heist and begin their escape. The biggest question to be answered in the season 5 is whether the team will be able to escape from the Bank of Spain or not. And if yes, how?
In a statement posted to Netflix’s “See What’s Next” account (now labeled Netflix Queue), 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.”
Up until the official renewal in August 2020, Alex Pina and his team of writers and directors have repeatedly said several times that there are plans for a fifth part.
In May 2020 shortly after the release of White Lines, Pina spoke to Deadline, and yet again, all but confirmed the future of the series. The article states: “Season 5 is coming, but Pina could not confirm any further series because “Netflix will put a bomb in my house.”
Filming began in August 2020 with some on-set pictures being leaked out by fans tracking the show.
It confirms that Berlin is back for the fifth season and is as dapper as ever. Below, you can see more photos from on set taken in early August 2020 and into September 2020.

Now the latest buzz making the rounds is that that season 5 of Money Heist is most likely to be released in mid-August 2021, and an official announcement is confirmed. The series shooting was delayed due to coronavirus pandemic, but now is on track for an August release, entertainment published by - The Beyond News
