Since its release in 2017, the Spanish Netflix original Money Heist has gained much popularity worldwide. Netflix played an important role in the success of Money Heist.
When Money Heist’s second season was released in Spain, its number of viewers decreased dramatically. Later, Netflix bought the show, modified the episodes, and Money Heist became the most viewed series in several countries.
There are now four seasons of the show, including 38 episodes. The show has been renewed for a fifth season, and in today’s article, you’re going to learn all about it. Let’s begin.
Money Heist: Overview
Before we proceed with new information about the new season, let’s take a recap of what we’ve seen of Money Heist until now.
We see the mastermind Professor gather a team of 8 robbers. He trains his team for five months before beginning the theft. The robbers carry out the operation while the Professor assists them from a location outside the mint. At the same time, they build an escape tunnel.
The robbers face difficulties as hostages become uncooperative. At the same time, Denver falls in love with Monica. On the outside, Professor develops intimate relations with Inspector Raquel.
Oslo, Moscow, and Berlin die during the heist. The robbers escape through the tunnel they built. Raquel discovers the real identity of “Salva” but cannot hand him over to the police. She later deciphers postcards left by the Professor and meets him.
Raquel and Monica join the gang. The team enjoys the heist money for 2-3 years until Europol catches Rio. The Professor starts the plan to attack the Bank of Spain to get Rio back. The group breaks into the bank, and the police are forced to release Rio. In the process, Nairobi gets badly injured.
The group is successful in saving Nairobi’s life. The Professor organizes a truce with the cops. Meanwhile, Palermo and Gandia create mayhem. Gandia shoots Nairobi, and she dies. The Professor leaks a video of the police inflicting torture on Rio because Sierra gets fired.
Money Heist Season 5: When is it releasing
It’s rather bittersweet than happy news for the Money Heist fans. Netflix has recently confirmed the release of a fifth and, sadly, a final season of the popular show. The show was meant to return in May 2021, but the process got delayed due to the global pandemic.
The cast is currently shooting for the fifth season in Madrid. The creator of the show, Alex Pina, has revealed that the final season will be available for the public in the second half of 2021, probably by September or October and no sooner.
Money Heist Season 5: Characters
The members of the Professor’s team are most likely to be back for the last season. At the same time, there will be a few newcomers as well.
- Alvaro Morte- The Professor
He is the mastermind behind the entire heist and brought the group together. He planned out the heist and trained his group accordingly.
- Ursula Corbero- Tokyo
She is the narrator of the series. Before getting involved in The Professor’s heist plan, she was a robber running from the cops.
- Miguel Herran- Rio
Rio is one of the youngest on The Professor’s team. He was brought in to hack into computer systems. He would rather sit quietly at his desk and do his job, but his love for Tokyo forced him to play a much more significant role in the heist.
- Jaime Llorente- Denver
Denver is the son of Moscow, another member of the heist. He was brought into the plan by his father. He eventually falls in love with a hostage named Monica during the heist.
- Darko Peric- Helsinki
Helsinki is an experienced Serbian soldier and a cousin of Oslo (a member who dies in season 2). He is mainly in charge of the hostages. He is a challenging and big guy and “not to be messed with.” But underneath that tough-guy attitude, he’s a likable character.
- Paco Tous- Moscow
He is the father of Denver and a former miner. Before joining the heist, he was a thief who used to rob banks using tools. He had also served time in jail.
- Itziar Ituño- Raquel Murillo (Lisbon)
At the starting of the series, she plays the role of an Inspector. She is put in charge of the heist case. She falls for The Professor and eventually becomes a part of the heist in season 3.
- Najwa Nimri- Alicia Sierra
She is a pregnant Inspector and is put in charge of the heist case after Raquel leaves the police force.
- Esther Acebo- Monica Gaztambide (Stockholm)
Monica is one of the hostages and mistress of Arturo (another hostage). She’s pregnant with Arturo’s child. She and Denver fall in love during the heist, and she eventually joins their team.
- Enrique Arce- Arturo Román
Arturo Roman is probably the only character in the show that many people despise. He is one of the hostages and the Director of the Royal Mint of Spain. He considers himself a hero during the heist and often tries to showcase his courage but fails.
Money Heist Season 5: Plot (what you can expect)
Alex Pina, the creator of Money Heist, has revealed that the last season will be the “most epic and exciting season.” He added that he wants to “close the series in style.” By his words, it’s a given that Money Heist won’t end without a big bang.
Many of us speculate the Professor’s death as the end of season 4 showed Alicia pointing a gun at him. Many people will be disappointed if this theory does prove to be confirmed as millions love the Professor. The return of Berlin is also suspected.
There are very high chances of the gang splitting up in season 5. In the creator’s words, the team spent a year thinking about breaking up the band. It’s predicted that the Professor will return to his old life of loneliness and leave Lisbon.
The last season is going to have ten episodes. Since we’ll be seeing the last of Money Heist, it’s predicted that the length of the episodes will be longer than usual.
Money Heist Season 5: Where can you watch it?
Since it’s a Netflix original, Money Heist will be exclusively available on Netflix on the release date. You can subscribe and watch the episodes.
For some countries, it is available on Amazon Prime also. But for most countries, it’s not. Apart from this, there is no other way to watch Money Heist.
A few websites leak content from Netflix and let you download the episodes. But we suggest you not click on them as they might cause more harm than good.
