Netflix unveiled the release dates for the two-part, fifth and final season of Spanish crime drama Money Heist, with part 1 dropping in September.
Netflix officially unveiled when the final season of Money Heist, also known as Spanish crime drama La casa del papel, will be hitting its streaming service alongside a new trailer. The show started as a limited two-part series on a Spanish television channel before becoming one of Netflix's most popular international shows. Netflix Spain picked up the streaming rights in 2017, re-edited old episodes, and later provided an English-language dub of the series.
Throughout the four seasons of Money Heist, a rag-tag group of charismatic criminals performs two major bank heists. Each member goes by a nickname after a city, with Silen Oliveira/Tokyo (Úrsula Corberó) serving as the main character. Following the complex plans of Sergio "the Professor" Marquina (Álvaro Morte), the group successfully robbed the Royal Mint of Spain during the first two seasons. Season 5 is set to bring the heist to an end, as Netflix previously announced it would be the show's last season. Season 4 concluded with a cliffhanger as the group freed Raquel/Lisbon (Itziar Ituño) from jail.
And Netflix is finally letting fans know when they can expect the heist to come to an end in a new teaser. The date announcement video is a dramatic look into the climax of the heist, as the red-jumpsuit-wearing criminals' fight to the end. At the end of the clip, it's revealed that Volume 1 of Season 5 will be released September 3, with Volume 2 following on December 3.
The only words throughout the trailer come from Corbero, who has long been the unreliable narrator of the show.
"The most important moments are those when we understand there's no return."
It's clear with Money Heist embarking into its final season that even if the group is successful with the heist, not everyone will make it out of the bank alive. Alongside the Professor, Toyko, and Lisbon, the trailer from Netflix shows some of the faces that will return in Season 5. Those include Aníbal/Río (Miguel Herrán), Daniel/Denver (Jaime Lorente), Mónica/Stockholm (Esther Acebo), Mirko/Helsinki (Darko Perić) and Arturo (Enrique Arce). Joining the show next season will be Miguel Ángel Silvestre (Sense8) and Patrick Criado, but it's unclear if they'll be donning Dali masks or playing for the other team.
The new trailer exemplifies the idea that stakes are as high as ever this time around for the Money Heist crew, but the first four seasons prove they work well under pressure. The team is angry and seeking revenge for the death of Ágata/Nairobi (Alba Flores).
They're dealing with gold rather than fake printed money, and the entire country is watching to see if they can pull it off, with all of the forces against them. They can't fly under the radar anymore, and spending so much time together in stressful situations has complicated the relationships between the one-time strangers. With Netflix splitting up the finale season into two releases, viewers are likely to be left with a few more cliffhangers before finding out the fate of their Money Heist favorites.
