Hey, Money Heist fans!!!
I know your excitement level is as high as mine regarding Money Heist Season 5. Season 4 left us with many questions and presumptions. We have been waiting for one year to come out of our introspections related to season 5.
Finally, the wait is over. Once again get ready to join a voyage full of action, thriller, love, and lots of drama. We are very close to satisfactory answers and revelations.
Netflix has announced the release dates of Season 5 which will be in two volumes.
Volume -1 releasing on September 3, 2021.
Volume -2 releasing on December 3, 2021.
Netflix’s ‘La Casa de Papel’s globally known as ‘Money Heist’ has acquired an enormous fan base from all over the world. The characters have indulged themselves impeccably in their role. Their hard work and dedication is an important factor for the success of this series.
We never thought that the mastermind Professor and the characters named after cities (Tokyo, Nairobi, Berlin, Denver, Rio, Helsinki, Oslo, Moscow, Lisbon, Stockholm, Bogota, Manila, and Marseille) will occupy such a remarkable place in our hearts.
Season 5 was expected in early 2021, but due to the global pandemic, it delayed a little. The cast and crew started shooting in August 2020 and finally announced the release dates of season 5.
Money Heist Season 5 trailer
Money Heist Season 5 trailer is out on May 24, 2021, which increased our eagerness to decode the suspense. From the trailer, we can summarize that this season is a complete package of action and war. In an average one-minute trailer we can see a chaotic atmosphere both inside and outside ‘The Bank of Spain’.
The trailer starts with a foot crushing the ‘Dali’ masks used by team members to hide their identity and also the symbol of revolution. The expressions of all the characters reveal that they are trying their best to fight with the army entering the ‘Bank Of Spain’ and on the other side we can see Professor tied with ropes and inspector Alicia Sierra is pointing the gun towards him. So there are many questions in our mind like,
Does the professor have an escape plan? Will the army defeat the team members or will they be able to survive? Will they make it possible to get out of the Bank of Spain? But the answer to the questions is a little distance away from us. Let’s wait and hope for the best!
How Money Heist Season 4 ended?
The Money heist season 4 which involves the second heist at the ‘Bank of Spain’ continued from season 3. Season 4 is wrapped up by ‘The Paris Plan’, in which Professor along with Benjamin and others sketches the rescue of his lady love ‘Lisbon’. On the other side, Nairobi’s death has made all the team members furious and want to kill ‘Gandia’ to revenge her death. But Professor prohibits them to do so. This causes Tokyo to lose her faith in the plan.
The team is successful in the rescue of Lisbon and drop her inside the Bank through the Chopper. But Inspector Alicia Sierra, on the other hand, blames the Government and the NIA for the death of Nairobi. Then she finds Professor’s hiding place through her investigations and points a gun at him. Thus season 4 ends leaving us with wilderness.
What the makers and actors tease about season 5?
Many of the actors have shared BTS from the sets, during shooting for season 5. As the production nears completion one by one every actor including Alvaro Morte (The Professor), Itziar Ituno (Lisbon), and Miguel Herran (Rio) bid goodbye to their characters through social media platforms. They shared their good memories and their relationship as a family.
Ursula Corbero (Tokyo) shared one picture from the sets, on her Instagram. Her caption translated as “omg you’re going to freak out with the fifth season”, which reveals that the season is going to be super adventurous. Tokyo, who is the narrator of the whole series also an important character in the series. She is depicted as a courageous girl who loses her temper easily.
Jaime Lorente (Denver) also recently shared a photo captioned “all the wars of the world”, the picture depicts four team members including Denver holding guns and ready to attack. This picture also gives us an idea about the fierceness of the atmosphere inside the ‘Bank of Spain’.
Pedro Alonso (Berlin) started the series with an arrogant and rude character but made us emotional at the end of season 2 through his sacrifice to save other team members. He also appears in season 3 and season 4 in flashbacks. Pedro Alonso also said in one of the interviews that season 5 is going to be a war but within four walls.
Why ending with Money Heist Season 5
In August 2020, the makers and production team announced sweet and sour news of upcoming season 5 being a season finale. Consequently, we are happy with the release of Money Heist Season 5. But the announcement that this will be the last season has left the fan following in melancholy. We are not ready to say ‘Bella Ciao’ (goodbye Beautiful) to this outstanding heist drama. Maybe we will be never ready for that!!
The reason behind concluding the series with season 5 may be that the makers don’t want to extend the series in the evidence that the viewers will get losing their interests. Or maybe the characters have exhausted the same set of emotional parameters.
In one of the interview showrunner and executive producer Alex Pina said that “We’ve made over 2000 minutes of fiction with two heists. I think we have exhausted some of the character’s emotional arcs and their arcs of emotional 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.”
Makers also said that this season is going to be exciting and epic as well. Thus the makers decided to end the season with a bang!!
Season 5 cast along with new entries
The season 5 cast will be returning with the pre-existing characters like Alvaro Morte (The Professor), Itziar Ituno (Lisbon), Ursula Corbero (Tokyo), Miguel Herran (Rio), Jaime Lorente ( Denver), Esther Acebo (Stockholm), Enrique Arce (Arturo), Darko Peric (Helsinki), Hovik Keuchkerian (Bogota), Luka Peros (Marseille), Belen Cuesta (Manila), Fernando Cayo (Coronel Tamayo), Rodrigo de la Serna (Palermo), Najwa Nimri (Inspector Sierra), Pedro Alonso (berlin), Jose Manuel Moga (Gandia).
Along with these previous actors, we can see some new faces also. They are Patrick Criado, Jose Manuel Seda and Miguel Angel Silvestre. Their Characters are not yet clear but we can see their photos from the sets with other actors confirming their presence in season 5. Jose Manuel Seda is also seen in one of the photos shared by the Vancouver media’s Instagram page, where he is seen wearing a military uniform.
Season 5 will have new twists involving female characters
In the last four seasons, we have seen all the women characters playing their roles fantastically. They showed their emotional as well as the powerful side. But the makers said that season 5 will have various twists involving women characters who will battle against their enemy fiercely.
We have already seen Tokyo and Nairobi Fighting the battle. But Libson (aka Inspector Raquel Morillo) role shifted her from an inspector and get together with the Professor in season 3. She played very well as an inspector and also as a member of the heist.
Similarly, Stockholm (Monica Gaztambide) played a hostage in the Royal Mint of Spain and later falls in love with one of the team members (Denver). She also includes herself in the second heist beginning from season 3. Her character being the mother of one child, she is all set for the war in season 5.
How can we forget inspector Alicia Sierra, who is a pregnant woman who handled the case very well? In the trailer, she is seen holding the Professor at gunpoint, his hands tied with ropes. So a lot more is expected from her character also.
