Money Heist is returning for its fifth and final season. Netflix has announced that the popular action thriller’s finale will be in released in two parts of five episodes each, with volume one to be released on September 1 and volume 2 on December 3.
The show’s producers also had to contend with working on the finale in the middle of a pandemic.
“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,” Álex Pina, the show’s creator, explained.
The previous season left the gang trapped in the Bank of Spain for over 100 hours. They have managed to rescue Lisbon, but lost (spoiler) Nairobi. The Professor has been captured by Sierra and, for the first time, doesn’t seem to have a way out of his predicament. To make matters worse for the gang, the army stepped in to take them down.
Will the gang make it out alive or is it time to say “ciao” to them?
