Netflix finally revealed the release dates for the fifth and final season of its widely-popular Spanish crime drama series La Casa de Papel (Money Heist).
In a new trailer released on Monday evening, the streaming giant confirmed that Money Heist's 10-part series finale will be released in two volumes: the first five episodes will premiere on September 3 while the remaining five episodes will be available on Netflix three months later on December 3.
Check out the intense trailer below:
“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," series creator and executive producer Alex Pina said in a statement.
"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," he added.
Here's the official synopsis of the series' final season:
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.
Netflix previously revealed that the Spanish crime drama's final season will include fresh new faces in the story. The streaming giant said that Miguel Ángel Silvestre (Sense 8) and Patrick Criado will join the rest of the crew which includes Álvaro Morte (The Professor), Itziar Ituño (Lisbon), Úrsula Coberó (Tokyo), Pedro Alonso (Berlin), Miguel Herrán (Rio), Jaime Lorente (Denver), Esther Acebo (Stockholm), Darko Peric (Helsinki), Hovik Keuchkerian (Bogotá), Luka Peros (Marseille), Belén Cuesta (Manila), and Rodrigo de la Serna (Palermo).
