Since its debut in 2017, Money Heist has been one of the most-watched shows on Netflix. Its perfect balance between romance and action has made it captivating as it evokes different emotions at the same time. The renewal of Money Heist Season 5 was expected, especially considering the success of season 4.

Money Heist Season 5 on Netflix is also a highly anticipated show due to a lot of unanswered questions. For example, is Inspector Sierra, the same person as Tatiana? Also, fans want to know if the gang will outsmart the police and come out alive like in the previous heist.

Release date

While Covid-19 pandemic has affected the production of many shows, Netflix has confirmed Money Heist season 5. However, the official tweet did not mention the exact Money Heist season 5 release date.

The show preproduction started at the beginning of August 2020. Alex Pina, the creator, and writer of the show, has been sharing snippets suggesting that the show is ready for production. If things go as planned, the final season is likely to be released in the mid-2021.

Since it is in the production stage, the official Money Heist season 5 trailer is likely to be released early in 2021. The production company, Vancouver Media has, however, started promoting the show on its social media, especially on Instagram.

Production details and the expected episodes

According to Digital Spy, Money Heist will be filmed in three different countries — Portugal, Spain and Denmark. Therefore, the show’s scope is more likely to be extensive and with many flashbacks like the previous seasons.

Like other TV shows on Netflix, Money Heist season 5 episodes will be ten. Since this will be the final season, they are likely to be longer than in other seasons.

Money Heist Season 5 cast and characters

Just like the months preceding the release of the past two seasons of La Casa de Papel, there is still some speculation about who will feature and who won't. Besides, some shocking revelations are certain given the twists that the previous season took. Some of the vital cast members in the final season will include:

1. Úrsula Corberó as Tokyo

After the unexpected turn of events in season four and the death of Nairobi (Alba Flores), Tokyo is on a survival mode. Apart from the two being close friends, the demise of Nairobi was a wake-up call to Tokyo that making out of the heist is not a guarantee. She will, therefore, try as much as possible to get out of the situation by any means possible.

2. Álvaro Morte as Sergio ‘Professor’

For three seasons and half seasons, Sergio was in charge. However, in the last episodes of season four, the smart mastermind ran out of ideas. While he may regain control in the final season, it is clear that Sergio will be an entertaining character to watch.

3. Pedro Alonso as Berlin

While his active role ended in season two, Berlin continues to be an integral part of the story. In an Instagram post by Vancouver Media, Berlin is indeed part of the cast. His return in season five will also clear rumours about his alleged relationship with Alicia Sierra (the pregnant police inspector).

4. Itziar Ituño as Lisbon

From Raquel Murillo to Lisbon, it is evident that she has undergone more transformations on the show than anybody else. The last season will be a perfect test of her love for Sergio. It also remains to be seen whether Lisbon’s entry to the bank will help Sergio regain control of the heist or not.

5. Miguel Herrán as Rio

Rio’s capture was one of the reasons why Professor considered the second heist, despite being unsure about some details. One of the key highlights in the next season will be him working with his ex-girlfriend without falling in love again. Whether this will be successful still remains to be seen.

6. Darko Peric as Helsinki

Helsinki is a team player and an integral member of the gang. Thanks to his compassion and dedication, he has become one of the fans’ favourites in the past four seasons. However, there have been speculations that he may be next to die, especially, considering that the show is not afraid to kill main characters such as Nairobi.

7. Hovik Keauchkerian as Bogota

Bogota was one of the people that Professor recruited for the second heist. Apart from being a skilled welder, his conversations with Nairobi were hilarious. In season five, Bogota may be demotivated especially from the death of Nairobi. The lack of motivation may affect the gang’s mission of escaping the bank alive.

8. Luka Peros as Marseille

While Marseille was one of the recurring characters in the previous season, he became the main character in season four. Like the first heist, he is part of the team that works from outside. Apart from saving Professor’s life, he will be a team member in the quest of getting the gang out of the bank.

9. Belen Cuesta as Manila

Manila debut on the show was the most dramatic scene on episode eight of season four. As an undercover agent for the gang, she neutralised Arturo who was making it hard to manage hostages. Although her role was a surprise to many fans, she will be a vital figure in the next season, thanks to her vast understanding of the bank’s design.

10. Najwa Nimri as Inspector Sierra

Inspector Sierra identity has been a subject of conspiracy theories. While there were physical similarities between her and Tatiana, it is impossible to tell whether it is her. The last season will be instrumental in understanding her real identity. There are also possibilities that she may eventually work against the government, just like Raquel Murillo in the previous seasons.

11. Jose Manuel Poga as Gandia

After killing Nairobi in season four, Gandia will be fighting for his life, especially from hot-tempered Tokyo. Unlike the previous heist which did not have a tactical character inside the bank, he complicated the heist in season four. Also, the support from the government may make him lethal in the next season.

Money Heist season 5 spoilers and possible twists on the show’s scope

The four seasons have been unmatched in terms of surprise twists. For example, Raquel joining the gang and falling in love with Professor was unpredictable. The last season will be the climax of unexpected twists. Some of the possible scripting directions include:

More romance and action

One of the reasons why Money Heist is credited as one of the best shows on Netflix is its balance between action and romance. The final season is likely to have a similar direction. The Professor and Lisbon’s love will be put to the test. Also, Tokyo and Rio may rekindle their romance in the new season.

Unmasking Inspector Sierra

Unlike Raquel Murillo in the first two seasons, Inspector Sierra seems to know more than most police on the operation. There are speculations that she may be Tatiana. If she is Tatiana, Professor and the gang may escape with the melted gold. The change of allegiance may be a reincarnation of Raquel Murillo in season three.

Ethical ending?

One of the most famous endings — of shows similar to Money Heist — is correcting the bad. While the first the cast did not pay for the wrong they did, the same is not true about the current heist. Therefore, more characters are more likely to die or end up in jail. There are higher possibilities that Tokyo narrates the series from prison. However, the show writer, Alex Pina, has a history of defying norms and creating new precedence in films.

Even with a lot of uncertainties brought by Covid-19, Money Heist season 5 is already in production. While the final season will be instrumental in answering some key aspects, the show producers understand the importance of a strong ending.
