New photos from Netflix’s Money Heist, also known as La Casa de Papel, have been revealed, hinting at a deadly finale in the show’s final episodes. The series, which began as a two-part limited series on Spanish cable television, has since grown to become one of Netflix’s most popular international shows. Season 5 of Money Heist will see the end of the Professor (lvaro Morte) and his ragtag band of crooks as they seek to pull off their second and most daring heist yet.
Money Heist is more than a typical criminal drama in that it blurs the lines between who is good and who is bad. The group of criminals known by their city names began as strangers but gradually became into a family, especially after the successful heist of the Royal Mint of Spain in the first two seasons.
Season 4 ended on a cliffhanger when the group rescued Raquel/Lisbon (Itziar Ituno), a police inspector turned criminal, from imprisonment. And Netflix is planning a two-part final season, which will air on September 3 and December 3 this year, to see if they are successful in robbing the Bank of Spain of all its gold.
Rio is shown in other images posing with an assault rifle, ready to seek revenge on anyone who has mistreated him. A third still shows three bank robbers defending themselves with a bazooka behind a bunker. Even if the Professor’s plan succeeds, the photographs serve as a warning to viewers that the stakes are high and that not everyone will make it out alive.
And keep in mind that the offenders’ identities are no longer a secret to the general public, as they have become stars in their own right across Spain. A fast getaway to a deserted island with all of the world’s money isn’t an option.
Money Heist has proven its capacity to capture viewers with high-intensity plotlines and make them feel a deep connection to some truly dark criminal masterminds in the first four seasons. And the show’s M.O. is mystery and unresolved questions. Netflix bears a significant duty to provide fans with a satisfactory final season while maintaining the sense of mystery that makes the show so compelling. And, based on the debut trailer, Season 5 of Money Heist appears to be committed to finishing what Season 4 began in 2017.
