The international Netflix phenomenon, Money Heist that is also known as La Casa De Papel, is officially returning for a fifth and the final season on Netflix in the year 2021.
Here is the latest and everything that we know so far about Money Heist season 5, including the path to its renewal, its potential release date, production details, and why we would not be getting a season 6.
Money Heist currently holds the streaming record of being the most-watched non-English title on the streaming giant. Once again, in the fourth season, the series smashed all of the previous records that it set.
The fourth season of Money Heist managed to rack up 65 million views. Before we move onto what we know about the fifth season, you should check out the accompanying documentary that was released on April 3, 2020, titled Money Heist: The Phenomenon.
It also documents the meteoric rise of the series with the guests, including Ted Sarandos and much of the cast and the creators. It gave us some really stunning insights, including the fact the show was almost axed.
Although it took an eternity, but Netflix acknowledged that season 5 is coming in the month of August of the year 2020. Sadly, it was also confirmed that “the heist comes to an end.” It means that the fifth season will be the final installment of the hit Spanish series.

Money Heist Season 5 Production Update
Up until the official renewal of the series in August 2020, Alex Pina and his team of writers and directors have repeatedly said that there are plans for a fifth season. In May 2020, very shortly after the release of White Lines, Pina revealed and yet again confirmed the future of the series.
Speaking about what they are hoping to achieve with the last season of Money Heist, Álex Rodrigo has stated that he wants to “close the series in style, as the fans imagine and dream.”
In early July 2020, it was confirmed that he is still writing the fifth season of the series with a glamorous picture of the showrunner in their back garden office. Pina tagged alongside his image in the office: “Writing La Casa de Papel 5.”
Later in July, we were led to believe, thanks to Vancouver Media, posting pictures via Instagram that the preparation for production had begun.
In July 2020, Pedro Alonso, who plays the role of Berlin, also posted, suggesting that he will be returning for season 5. On July 21, 2020, Alaro Morte posted that his first day back, saying: “I’m back. The Professor is back.”.
