Money Heist (original title: La Casa de Papel) Season 5 will be released on Netflix in two volumes in September and December 2021 globally. The Spanish series became a huge international hit when it premiered on the streaming service in 2017, and the first part of the final season just arrived in September, but now, fans are excited to see second volume wrap up the entire series.
The crime drama series holds the current record of being the most-watched non-English title on Netflix, and Money Heist Season 4, which premiered in April 2020, surpased all of the previous records the show set as it managed to get 65 million views. However, that will likely be surpassed by Squid Game, the South Korean series that has been dominating Netflix charts all over the world.
Here's everything we know about the fifth and final season of Money Heist.

Money Heist Season 5 New Cast Members
In August 2020, Netflix confirmed two new cast members joining the final season of Money Heist: Miguel Ángel Silvestre and Patrick Criado.
Miguel Silverstre, best known for his role in Netflix's Sense8, was announced to join the cast of Season 5. On his Instagram, he said (translated into English): "Mamaaaa! How lucky I am? Maximo of joy!"
Here's what showrunner Alex Pina said about Silvestre's character:
"We always try to bring in charismatic, intelligent and brilliant opponents. In this case, from a genre of pure war, we also look for characters in which the intelligence can be like that of the Professor"
Secondly, Patrick Criado is best known for his roles in El Aspirante, Mar de Plástico, El Rey, and La Línea Invisible. He is 24-years-old, which makes him one of the youngest cast members of Money Heist Season 5.
On Aug. 19, the official La Casa de Papel Twitter account shared a clip of Criado's role with Berlin. Apparently, his character's name is Rafael, and he's described to be a prodigal son.
Netflix also teased the three new characters in Aug. 2021, which also includes Sagasta (played by José Manuel Seda), the Commander of the Special Forces of the Spanish Army.
In September 2020, FormulaTV confirmed another cast member: José Manuel Seda, an actor, writer, and director best known for his work on Yo soy Bea and directing the 2005 short, Tránsito.
Over on Twitter, Seda said:
"Happy to share the wonderful gift I received on my birthday: my participation in the final season of @LaCasaDePapelTV one of those series that when you see them, you dream of being in it. Thanks to @VancouverMed and @NetflixES"
The rest of the actors will return, including include Alvaro Morte (Professor) Ursula Corbero (Tokyo) Itziar Ituno (Raquel Murillo), Pedro Alonso (Berlin), Miguel Herran (Rio), Jaime Lorente (Denver), Esther Acebo (Monica Gaztambide), Enrique Arce (Arturo Roman), Rodrigo de la Serna (Palermo), Darko Peric (Helsinki), Najwa Nimri (Alicia Sierra), Hovik Keuchkerian (Bogota), Luka Peros (Marseille), Belen Cuesta (Manila), Fernando Cayo (Luis Tamayo), Fernando Soto (Angel Rubio), Jose Manuel Poga (Cesar Gandia) and Mario de la Rosa (Suarez).
Money Heist Season 5 plot spoilers: What will the final season be about?
Warning: Spoilers for Money Heist Season 4 and previous seasons ahead.
At the end of Money Heist Season 4, The Professor (played by Alvaro Morte) was caught by Alicia Sierra, the pregnant inspector played by Najwa Nimri, who has gone rogue. Alicia pointed a gun at the professor, and the fourth season cuts to credits with a new rendition of the show's iconic song, Bella Ciao.
In the Bank of Spain, the team has to work on the final stages of the heist and find a way out, but with the military involved, and the Professor in trouble, the gang will surely have an extremely hard time escaping the bank. Season 4 revealed that the gang in the basement is continuing to melt down the gold into small balls for extraction.
Now, let's get to the spoiler hints for Season 5.
The first volume of Money Heist Season 5 saw the death of Tokyo (played by Ursula Corbero) after being shot by a sniper from outisde. The final episodes will likely show the gang's desperate attempts to survive and escape the heist.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Pina said that "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."
Pina added, "We have spent almost a year thinking about how to destroy 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 season 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 fan-favorite character, Berlin (played by Pedro Alonso) is also expected to return as the actor and Vancouver Media teased his appearance in the final film. As most fans know, most of his appearances since Money Heist Season 3 have been flashbacks, so it's likely that Season 5 will continue showing more of Berlin's past.
During the show's appearance at the 2021 Television Critics Association summer press tour, Money Heist producer Jesús Colmenar sees Nairobi's death in Season 4 as a teaser of what is to come. "Nairobi's personality was not cut for the war we find in this final season, so she wasn't supposed to be here," Colemnar said. 'She wasn't cut for that. And I think that this adds momentum to our characters that would be complex to add otherwise. We kill our characters, and I think it adds tension, and it's a good thing not to be able to know who will be killed and what will happen."
Expect to see more deaths in the final season of Money Heist.
