Money Heist spoilers follow.
Fans might have expected the season-four finale to follow the same format as season two, neatly wrapping up the heist after just two seasons. But nothing seems to have gone to plan this time around, and the gang have been forced to buy themselves a bit more time.
That means season four ended on a cliffhanger, which left the door wide open for Money Heist season five.
Money Heist has shot in Spain, Denmark and Portugal, with the final series consisting of 10 episodes.
Here’s everything you need to know.
Money Heist season 5 release date: When will it air on Netflix?
Heists are often full of twists and turns and the final season of Money Heist is no different. For the last chapter, Netflix has decided to split the story into two separate volumes, and both will have a slightly different tone.
Volume one was released on September 3 and volume two will be released on December 3, 2021.
Álex Pina, the show’s creator, explained the reasoning behind this in an official statement:
“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.”
While we’re waiting for the last set of episodes, there’s always Money Heist: The Experience, an immersive theatre production that’s launching in November in an “iconic” London location.
Each show will last between 60 and 75 minutes, and you’ll also be able to don original costumes and masks from the series.

Money Heist (La Casa de Papel) seasons 1-5 (pt1) are now available to watch worldwide on Netflix. Season 5 part 2 will premiere on December 3. For more information on Money Heist: The Experience visit the official website, and you can check ticket availability for London here.
