Money Heist is a worldwide phenomenon. Also known as La Casa de Papel, it is the most popular non-English show that Netflix produces.
Season 4 of Money Heist alone was watched by 65 million households in its first 28 days on Netflix. Sadly, the addictive, dramatic and violent series is drawing to its final conclusion, and we just know it'll be an epic finish.
The end of season 4 gave us a nail-biting cliffhanger, so fans around the world have been eagerly awaiting the season 5 release date.
When is the 'Money Heist' season 5 release date?
After patiently waiting to hear more news, Netflix finally announced the release dates for Money Heist's fifth and final season. And get this: we've got two release dates.
The official Twitter account for Money Heist (La Casa de Papel) revealed in late May that season 5 of Money Heist would be split into two standalone volumes, offering two separate narrative tones per volume.
The Money Heist season 5 release date spans across two dates, marking the release of each volume.
Volume 1 will air on September 3 of this year. Three months later, Volume 2 will drop on December 3.
Why is 'Money Heist' season 5 split into two volumes?
In a press statement, series creator Álex Pina said there were a few reasons for the decision to split Money Heist season 5 into two volumes.
"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," Pina added.
What will happen in the 'Money Heist' season 5 plot?
Money Heist is gearing up to end with an epic and exciting season. Based on first looks, it appears that the season opens with the gang still stuck inside the Bank of Spain.
According to Deadline, the logline for Money Heist season 5 is as follows:
"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."
