Money Heist Season 5

Firstly, Sense8 alum Miguel Ángel Silvestre was declared to be part of season 5. He said on his Instagram (translated into English): “Mamaaaa! How lucky I am? Maximo of pleasure!”

Miguel’s character is believed to be a brand new villain for the final season.

Speaking about Miguel’s personality and villains Generally, Alex Pina stated:

“We always try to bring in charismatic, intelligent and brilliant opponents. In this case, from a genre of pure war, we also look for characters in which the intelligence can be like that of the Professor”

The 2nd new cast member announced for season 5 is Patrick Criado. Patrick is most famous for his characters in The Aspirant, Plastic Sea, and The King.

Back in September 2020, we heard of another cast member joining the cast courtesy. José Manuel Seda, who’s a writer, director, and actor is best known for his work on Yo soy Bea and directing the 2005 brief, Tránsito.

In a Tweet José Manuel Seda said:

“Happy to share the wonderful gift I received on my birthday: my participation in the final season of @LaCasaDePapelTV one of those series that when you see them, you dream of being in it. Thanks to @VancouverMed and @NetflixES”

What will happen in Money Heist season 5?

There haven’t been any plot details released yet for Money Heist season five has only just been verified.

However, Pina has teased there will be a war coming in the final outing in a brand new interview with Entertainment Weekly.

He explained: “We are moving out of a boxing game — a merely intellectual approach — to a war strategy: assault and contention.

“Adrenaline is within Money Heist’s DNA. Each thirty seconds things take place and disrupt the figures, a turn of the screw to the activity.

“The adrenaline mixed with feelings arising from completely complex, magnetic, unforeseeable characters will last until the end of the heist to the Bank of Spain.

“But, the gang will then be pushed into irreversible scenarios, into a wild war. It is the most epic part of all of the parts we’ve shot.”

As well as this, depending on the end of season four, it feels like the new season will follow the heist members as they attempt to escape from the Bank of Spain.

In the last incident, Lisbon was reunited with the group within the lender while Gandia was knocked unconscious.

In addition to this, the show will need to deal with the huge cliffhanger left in the conclusion of year four when Sierra found the Professor’s hideout.

In the last few minutes, she held a gun to his head and said”checkmate” before the series cut to black.

Hence, viewers will be desperate to know what’s going to happen next to the dear Professor.
