Creator Álex Pina of Money Heist makes a statement on the final season of Money Heist. “We are moving from a chess game – a mere intellectual strategy – to a war strategy: attack and contention. This new goal raises the stakes while keeping the story fresh and maintaining the adrenaline that has always run through Money Heist. The war they’ve been pushed to start results in “the most epic part of all the parts we’ve shot.” So the megahit series Money Heist on Netflix will come to close with season 5. The fifth and final season announcement was made on July 31.
The cast and crew will begin production on August 3 in Denmark before moving to Spain and Portugal. The final 10 episodes will also tell the story of Denver’s childhood friend Manila played by Belén Cuesta. Teasing the face-off between Alicia Sierra and The Professor, Pina said, “Adrenaline is within Money Heist’s DNA. Every thirty seconds things take place and disrupt the characters, a turn of the screw to the action. The adrenaline mixed with feelings arising from absolutely complex, magnetic, unforeseeable characters will continue until the end of the heist to the Bank of Spain. However, the gang will now be pushed into irreversible situations, into a wild war: it is the most epic part of all the parts we’ve shot.”
