Money Heist (or La casa de Papel in Spanish) is one of the most popular web series released on Netlfix, attracting millions of viewers. Initially, it aired as a 15 episodes season on the Spanish network Antena 3. Netflix acquired global distribution rights and altered the initial cut into a new season with 22 episodes. This first part, or season one, was so well-received that Netflix commissioned the production of a new season, followed by seasons three and four.
The action of the series takes place in Madrid, where an elusive man known as The Professor recruits a team of eight people to perform two complex heists, which target the Royal Mint of Spain and the Bank of Spain.
Season 5 release date
Netflix renewed the series for another season while season 4 was in production, a clear hint that it will arrive at some point in the future. However, a release date hasn’t been announced for now, and it may be possible that the production work related to season 5 has been postponed as COVID-19 spread across the world.
Some voices argue that season five could be released in 2021, but only time will tell what will happen.
