We hate seeing a good series come to an end. Netflix’s “Money Heist” is set to complete the heist of a lifetime with a 2-part 5th season. The Spanish series took the international world by storm with Dali masks and red jumpsuits. The cast of unlikely criminals attempting to shake up the status quo (as well as making some $$) struck a chord with audiences, and has remained a huge hit for the streaming service.
The first teaser for the final season (part 1) released this morning, and it looks like all hell breaks loose.
“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.“
“Money Heist” series creator Álex Pina said of the final season:
“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 ten-episode season and used every tool we could to create the sensation of a season finale or series finale in the first volume itself. 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.”
Check out the teaser below:
“Money Heist” Volume 1 releases on September 3rd, with Volume 2 due on December 3rd, 2021.
If you can’t wait that long, seasons 1-4 are currently streaming exclusively on Netflix. Also, check out this song from The Professor and Inspector Alicia Sierra here!
