Netflix has revealed that La Casa de Papel’s fifth and final season would be split into two parts, each with five episodes. Money Heist season 5 “Volume 1” will premiere on Netflix on September 3, followed by “Volume 2” on December 3 towards the conclusion of the year.
Money Heist writer Alex Pina said in a prepared statement, “When we began writing Part 5 in the middle of the pandemic, we realized we had to redefine what was anticipated from the ten episode of season 5 and used every resource we could to produce the sensation of a season finale in the first volume itself.”
“In order to put The Gang on the ropes, we opted to work in a very aggressive genre. In volume 2, we pay more attention to the characters’ emotional situations. It’s a voyage through their emotional map that leads us straight to their departure.”
