“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,” creator and executive producer Alex Pina said in a statement. “The war reaches its most extreme and savage levels, but it is also the most epic and exciting season.”
Money Heist follows the story of eight thieves who take hostages and lock themselves in the Royal Mint of Spain as a criminal mastermind manipulates the police to carry out his plan.
