The fifth season of Netflix’s super-hit Spanish series “Money Heist” will be split into two volumes of five episodes each, the streamer announced Monday. Created by Alex Pina and produced by Vancouver Media, the show, titled “La Casa De Papel” in Spanish, wrapped production on its last chapter on May 14. While the first five episodes will be released on September 3, the remainder will debut after three months on December 3. The makers also released a 56 second-long teaser of the final season. According to the streaming platform, “the most famous heist in history will come to an end in two instalments of five episodes each: volume 1 will be released on September 3 and volume 2 will be released on December 3, 2021”.
Pina said the team decided to change things a little bit considering the coronavirus pandemic and this being the final season.
“When we began to write Part 5 in the midst of the pandemic, we felt that we had to change what was expected from the ten-episode season and used every tool we could to create the sensation of a season finale or series finale in the first volume itself.We decided to work in an extremely aggressive genre, putting The Gang on the ropes,” the series creator said in a statement.
