Also, make sure to watch the documentary of the series available on Netflix which was released along with the release of the fourth season.

So we have gathered all the necessary details that you need to know about the upcoming season of the series, along with it’s date of premiere, cast, expected storyline and the trailer.

The fifth and the final season of Money Heist is expected to air in the first quarter of 2021.

Unlike its usual tradition, this time the season won’t be divided into two chapters which used to come out within a gap of eight months, but will be an absolute one with ten episodes.

Although the release date has not been decided yet by Netflix, we can expect it to happen soon. As for now, you can watch all the past seasons on Netflix, if you own the subscription rights to the streaming platform.

The death of Nairobi played by Alba Flores, has carved a tragic void in the group, so we might now be able to watch him there anymore. However, Money Heist is famous for playing with non-linear time and flashbacks, so it’s too early to say anything on that. Angel Silvestre and Patrick Criado will join the cast of Money Heist along with the other members including Úrsula Corberó as Tokio, Álvaro Morte as El Profesor, Miguel Herrán as Río, Itziar Ituño as Lisbon, Esther Acebo as Stockholmo, Enrique Arce as Arturo Román, Jaime Lorente as Denver, and Darko Peric as Helsinki. The characters of Silvestre and Criado has not been revealed but it is very unlikely that they will be serving as allies.

Money Heist Season 5 Expected Storyline

Season 5 of Money Heist will expand the universe of the show further dealing with armed robbery of the supreme degree, along with a tint of political resistance appearing throughout the heist. The future episodes of the series will be exploring the cliffhanger left loose in the last season end. At the end of season 4, we witnessed that Lisbon is stuck inside the bank, along with the others, without any way out, with the professor being cornered by Inspectora Alicia Sierra. The should continue to melt gold at top speed, and hope for Sergio to outsmart Sierra just for once. The series creator, Alex Pina stated that the show will be shifting from the theme of a chess game that requires mental strategy, to a game of war strategy, filled with attack and contention. You will be updated with further information as the details are officially announced.

The trailer of the fifth season is not out yet. It usually comes out a few weeks before the release of the series for promotional purpose. You can watch the trailer of season 4 for the time being.
