We all knew that Money Heist would be back for a Part 5. When you’re one of the biggest global shows around that’s bound to happen. But we never expected the news of The Professor’s return to be so bittersweet. Today Netflix announced that Money Heist Season 5 would be the series’ last.
Created by Álex Pina, Money Heist, also known as La Casa de Papel, is one one Netflix’s most impressive success stories. When this action drama about robbing the Royal Mint premiered on the Spanish network Antena 3, it didn’t look like it would be around long. Despite great opening numbers, interest in the series slowly started to disappear and the creators and cast were sure their heist-loving baby was sure to be canceled. That’s when Netflix swooped in to save the day. After releasing the series’ first season as the edited Parts 1 and 2, the streaming giant renewed the show for another season with a proper budget for an international thriller. It’s been a whirlwind of fan excitement ever since.
But sadly all of that excitement about The Professor’s plans and Tokyo’s latest dumb move will be coming to an end.
following these criminals as they robbed the Royal Mint of Spain, later seasons of the show chronicled them robbing the Bank of Spain. It’s hard to best yourself after you’ve successfully robbed a major international bank. Also with each crazy plot this team gets away with, the believability of this series suffers a bit.
And then there’s the matter of how Money Heist Part 4 ended. After Nairobi (Alba Flores) was murdered by an agent working for the Spanish government, the team lost its collective cool. They took revenge, no longer caring to stay hidden or portray themselves as gun-toting pacifists. Those brash actions led to their own problems. In the final moments of Part 4 former Detective Alicia Sierra (Najwa Nimri), now an enemy of the very organization she once helped, tracked down The Professor (Álvaro Morte) and put a gun to his head.
However Money Heist ends, it’s going to be wild. We’ll be waiting with bated breath and our own Salvador Dalí masks.
