La Casa de Papel part five will be the final outing of the hit Spanish crime drama on Netflix. However, ahead of its release, the streaming platform has revealed a format shake-up which is sure to leave fans excited. 

How many episodes are in Money Heist season 5?

The fifth season of Money Heist has been announced as the final outing for the Netflix drama.

The show will be picking up from the cliffhanger ending of part four which saw the Professor (played by Alvaro Morte) in grave danger.

Fans will remember how he was left being held at gunpoint by Alicia Sierra (Najwa Nimri) after she found his hideout.

Now the series has been given one final outing to tie up what happens next.

This was confirmed by Netflix back in July but fans are wondering what exactly has been revealed so far.

One piece of information which has been dropped is the episode count of the new series.

The final season will be split into two parts, with the first airing on September 3. 

The second part will air on December 3, and there will be 10 episodes in total. 

The synopsis says: “The gang has been shut in the Bank of Spain for over 100 hours. They have managed to rescue Lisbon, but their darkest moment is upon them after losing one of their own.

“The Professor has been captured by Sierra and, for the first time, doesn’t have an escape plan. Just when it seems like nothing else could go wrong, an enemy comes on the scene that is much more powerful than any they’ve faced: the army. The end of the greatest heist in history is approaching, and what began as a robbery will turn into a war.”

This means the final season will have more room to bring the story to a conclusion.

However, so far none of the episodes titles for the final outing have been revealed.

This won’t be the first time the show has had more episodes as the first two outings were actually longer.

Part one featured 13 episodes in total while part two had nine episodes.

This is because before it was bought by Netflix, the show actually aired on a Spanish network.

As well as the confirmed episode count, the show’s creator Alex Pina also teased what will happen in the final outing.

The star has been teasing how the final outing will see the characters go to war.

He said of the final series: “We have spent almost a year thinking about how to destroy 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 season of La Casa de Papel.

“The war reaches its most extreme and savage levels, but it is also the most epic and exciting season”.

As well as this, it has been confirmed the new series will welcome two new cast members in Miguel Ángel Silvestre and Patrick Criado.

Money Heist seasons 1 to 4 are available to stream on Netflix now.
