A new photograph confirms that Netflix’s Money Heist has wrapped filming on season 5. The Spanish crime drama was made by Álex Pina under the name, La casa de papel (in English, “The Paper House”), as a two-part limited series on the Spanish television channel, Antenna 3. The series grew in popularity after Netflix Spain picked up it in 2017 and re-edited the episodes. The streaming service released an abysmal dub of the series shortly after, together with a documentary chronicling the show’s generation.
The series follows the unfolding of 2 major bank heists orchestrated by a mysterious criminal mastermind known as the Professor (Álvaro Morte). Silene Oliveira (Úrsula Corberó), the series’ main character, is an amateur thief living under the law who combines the heist team when the Professor notices her potential after she bungles a heist of her very own. The members of this team embrace codenames according to major global cities; Silene goes by the title”Tokyo.” The show’s drama stems from the Professor’s complex plans, which demand specific injunctions against his employees engaging in personal relationships or violating certain moral principles. After the group robs the Royal Mint in parts 1 and 2 of the original show, Netflix’s parts 3 and 4 chronicle a heist on the Bank of Spain that remains unfinished at the start of part/season 5.
On Friday, Netflix verified on Twitter that Money Heist has wrapped season 5 filming using a picture from the set. All cast members are pictured in their red jumpsuits, save for Morte. The streaming service is shown in July of this last year which Money Heist season 5 is going to be the show’s last with a trailer release that included the accompanying message, “The heist comes to a finish .” As production comes to a close, Netflix has now tweeted that this farewell for fans. Check out the tweet and set photo below:

Back in July, Pina said that season 5 will probably”break up the group ,””put the Professor about the principles ,” and put characters in”irreversible situations.” Miguel Ángel Silvestre (Sense8) and Patrick Criado will join the cast for the show’s final season. Jesús Colmenar and Cristina López Ferraz join Pina as executive producers with Colmenar, Koldo Serra and Álex Rodrigo directing. Itziar Ituño (Raquel/Lisbon), Pedro Alonso (Andrés/Berlin), Miguel Herrán (Aníbal/Rio), Alba Flores (Ágata/Nairobi), and Jaime Lorente (Ricardo/Denver) star alongside Morte and Corberó.
Money Heist Season 4 finishes with a win to the group as they manage to spare Lisbon from prison and sneak her to the Bank of Spain to join up with the rest of the heist team. They’re well-positioned to complete the heist now, however, the plan remains more elaborate and hard to pull off than their original. Where the Royal Mint robbery consisted of printing money just, the Bank of Spain heist involves making off with enormous quantities of actual gold. The formerly anonymous group has also been a public enemy in the eyes of the government and also a national symbol of anti-capitalism and resistance to the system, making it more difficult for them to fly under the radar. It’s nearly sure that some or many team members won’t make it from the heist alive, but who will endure, and whether the heist is pulled off, remain to be seen.
