‘Money Heist’: Will part 5 be this Netflix show’s last season?
Money Heist has been doing well on Netflix with high ratings and great reviews. Whenever a show is doing really well, fans become curious about how long the show will last. No one wants to see an amazing show get canceled way too early – but sometimes, show cancelations are the sad reality. Here’s everything you should know about Money Heist part 5 which premieres in two parts on September 3rd & December 3rd, 2021.
The show’s creator, Álex Pina, explained why they decided to split part 5 into two separate release dates: “When we began to write part five in the midst of the pandemic, we felt that we had to change what was expected from the ten-episode part and used every tool we could to create the sensation of a part finale or series finale in the first volume itself.”
He continued, “We decided to work in an extremely aggressive genre, putting The Gang on the ropes. In volume two, 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.” It sounds like there is a lot to look forward to!
Money Heist part 5 cast
Úrsula Corberó will be returning in Money Heist part 5 as Tokyo, Álvaro Morte as The Professor, Itziar Ituño as Lisbon, and Miguel Herrán as Rio. We’ll also see Jaime Lorente returning as Denver, Esther Acebo as Stockholm, Enrique Arce as Arturo, and Darko Peric as Helsinki.
Some of the new faces viewers will see for the first time in Money Heist part 5 include Miguel Ángel Silvestre from Sky Rojo & Sense8 as well as Patrick Criado from La Gran Familia Española. The cast in part 5 is going to do just as well as they did in the first four parts, undoubtedly. Unfortunately, Nairobi, played by Alba Flores, will not be returning for the fifth part.
Money Heist part 5 plot
There are plenty of unanswered questions fans have about the fifth part which means the plot we’ll see next is likely going to be very juicy. One huge question people have is if Rio and Tokio will ever reconcile. It’s possible they’re done for good but seeing them reunite could be a game-changer. Another question is about Alicia and if she’ll ever officially join the crew. It’s too soon to tell what her plan is.
Fans are also asking if anyone is going to murder Palermo on behalf of Nairobi. She’s gone and she deserves some vengeance. Will they end up totally wasting their helicopter escape plan? It’s a brilliant plan and it deserves to be executed at some point. Is The Professor genuinely in love with Raquel or are his feelings fleeting? He can be so up & down with her so who really knows for sure?
It will be interesting to discover who’s going to die next because with a show like Money Heist, someone’s always getting hurt or killed – whether it’s tragic or completely plotted out. Are Denver & Monica ever going to be able to move past the issues they share with one another? They might be a lost cause or there might be something left to salvage. Will Angel ever flip? He has to decide whose side he’s really on at some point.
Another huge question people are asking is why Arturo is still alive. He’s clearly a very despicable character with zero good qualities. There’s no reason to keep him around. Part 5 should be answering all of these questions and more.
Money Heist Part 5 . . . the end?
When asked why part 5 will be the end of the show, creator Álex Pina explained, “We’ve made over 2,000 minutes of fiction with two heists. I think we’ve exhausted some of the characters’ emotional arcs and their arcs of transformation. We’ve told a lot and I think it’s a good time to stop. It’s a very climatic season and I think it’s always better to leave sooner rather than later.”
It’s safe to say we’re sad to see the show end but if they end it on the right note, it will certainly be less difficult to let it go.
