Streaming Service: Netflix
No. of Parts: 5
The upcoming fifth part of Money Heist, aka La casa de papel, is going to be its last. In a letter to shareholders announcing Netflix’s Q1 earnings, the streamer revealed that the 10-episode part 5 of the crime drama series will premiere on the streaming service in the second half of 2021.
Netflix didn’t give a reason for the show’s cancellation, but based on a statement from series creator Alex Pina, it seems that the show’s story has already reached its intended ending. “We’ve spent almost a year thinking about how to break up the band. How to put the Professor (Alvaro Morte) 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,” Pina said in July 2020. “The war reaches its most extreme and savage levels, but it is also the most epic and exciting season.”
Launched back in 2017, Money Heist follows an unusual group of robbers as they attempt to carry out the most perfect robberies in Spanish history.
