Money Heist has been one of the most streamed shows worldwide on Netflix, making it a hit since it first began in 2017. The Professor (played by Álvaro Morte) employed a team of thieves who had nothing to lose but everything to gain in planning ambitious heists which would make them rich beyond their wildest imaginations. However, their time is coming to an end as La Casa de Papel will return for its last ever series.
WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Money Heist.
In July 2020, it was announced that Money Heist would end with five seasons.
Going by creator Alex Pina, this has been the plan for quite some time so it wasn’t a sudden decision made by Netflix.
Pina said: “We’ve spent almost a year thinking about how to break up the band.
“How to put the Professor on the ropes. How to get into situations that are irreversible for many characters.
“The result is the fifth part of La Casa de Papel.
“The war reaches its most extreme and savage levels, but it is also the most epic and exciting season.”
When Money Heist does return though, there are going to be a couple of new faces.

He has been in shows including Mar de plástico, Unauthorised Living, La línea invisible and Riot Police.
