Money Heist season 5 is almost here. And the Netflix show is nearly done — this is the beginning of the end. Netflix’s most popular Spanish-language series and its second most popular non-English series (after the French-language mystery thriller Lupin) is entering its fifth and final season. But following the two-part trend it established, Money Heist season 5 — or Part 5, as it’s officially called — is divided into two halves. While season 5 will begin this week, it won’t end for another three months. Yes, there’s more wait involved, unfortunately. Why are they doing this to us?
“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 10-episode season and used every tool we could to create the sensation of a season finale or series finale in the first volume itself,” Money Heist creator and showrunner Álex Pina said in May. “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.”
Pina is also an executive producer on Money Heist season 5 alongside Jesús Colmenar and Cristina López Ferraz. Javier Gómez Santander is the head writer on Money Heist season 5. The hit Netflix Spanish series is a production of Pina-run Vancouver Media. The red jumpsuits are back soon — and you will get to see them again before the end of 2021.
In India, Money Heist season 5 will also be available in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu — just as all past four seasons are. With that, here’s everything you need to know about Money Heist season 5.

Money Heist season 5 synopsis
Here’s the official synopsis for La casa de papel Part 5 from Netflix:
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.
