Money Heist Season 5 Plot
Money Heist is an international phenomenon that still maintains a place in the top 5 shows in several countries. This show has everything you expect – crime, thriller, romance, with much exciting and interesting plot that won’t let you bore for even a second. The show is about some strangers coming together and form a gang for a big heist and the gang is controlled by a professor.
The gang achieves its target by overcoming a lot of struggles with the hostages and amongst themselves too. The show portrays brilliant mind games and fine strategies. Because of its unpredictable and overwhelming plot, the show gained huge success.
However, in season 4, Nairobi bid goodbye to us as she died while the professor being trapped by a senior officer, Alicia. Season 4 ended with an intense climax. The heist is on with Lisbon now joining the rest of the gang in the Bank of Spain. There are multiple theories regarding season 5.
Some believe that now the gang will work together to free professor from Alicia and some believe that in season 5, Alicia will reveal that she is actually Berlin’s wife who is now dead. Some others believe her pregnancy to be fake. The theories are never-ending and are quite agreeable.
Alex Pina in an interview confirmed that season 5 will effectively be an all-out war saying “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.”
Money Heist Season 5 Cast
We might not see every cast member as some of the characters have already died such as Nairobi, Berlin, Moscow. Most-probably they are not part of the show anymore. Here’s a list of the cast members who are probably going to come back for season 5.
- Ursula Corbero as Tokyo
- Alvaro Morte as The Professor
- Itziar Ituno as Lisboa
- Miguel Herran as Rio
- Jamie Lorento as Denver
- Esther Acebo as Monica Gaztambide or Stockholm
- Najwa Nimri as Alicia Sierra
- Darko Peric as Helsinki
In August 2020 alongside the official announcement, two new cast members were announced to be part of season 5. Miguel Ángel Silvestre joins the star cast is believed to be a new villain for the final season. The second new cast member announced for season 5 is Patrick Criado. In September 2020, FormulaTV reported that José Manuel Seda has joined the cast.
We may also see more of Nairobi as she is listed in season 5 episode 1 of the show on IMDb listing.
Money Heist Season 5 Netflix Release Date
There was a gap of just nine months between seasons three and four of Money Heist. If season five follows the same pattern, we might be on the other side of the sea by the end of 2020. However, on 15 March 2020, Netflix stopped the production of all its shows and movies.
Filming for season 5 started in Aug 2020 and is still going at a good pace. Consider the filming to wrap up by the end of Feb, the show would require more than three months for post-production work. Our best bet would be the second half of 2021. Don’t expect Money Heist season 5 before that.
If you are on the lookout for a great entertaining show which will keep you fixated and makes you want to watch one episode more every hour. We recommend you to watch ‘Money Heist’ right now on Netflix.
