The popular Spanish heist drama concluded its fourth season with a gripping cliffhanger and Netflix officially confirmed that “Money Heist” season 5 is coming up. However, the American streaming provider also announced that this will be the series’ final run.
As of this time, the production of “Money Heist” season 5 is ongoing and the viewers could not wait to see what will happen next to Professor (Álvaro Morte) who was caught in his hideout by the brutal police inspector, Alicia Sierra. The leader of the gang is apparently in a tight spot so the next season would really be interesting.
Show creator hinted about the fate of the robbery gang
The Bank of Spain heist has reached the last phase where the group only needs to escape since they were caught red-handed and now heavily surrounded by the authorities. While trapped, they have declared war since there is no other way to escape but to fight back and this led to the death of Nairobi (Alba Flores).
Now, after the renewal of the “Money Heist” season 5 was announced in July, show creator Alex Pina shared what he thought about the finale. What he said ultimately revealed the fate of the robbers and it is a sad ending.
“We’ve spent almost a year thinking about how to break up the band,” What’s on Netflix quoted Pina as saying. “How to put the Professor on the ropes and how to get into situations that are irreversible for many characters.”
Clearly, he said that the gang will disband and most probably, they will part ways in an unfortunate manner like the members dying, being jailed or possibly severely injured. Definitely, the “Money Heist” season 5 is already at the stage where the scenes will be extreme and savage as this is war and everyone is going all-out to survive.
What to expect – Plot prediction and new cast members
There were predictions that once the dust has settled, only one member will remain standing and that is Tokyo. This is because she also serves as the drama’s narrator so it makes sense that she will live to narrate the story until the end. Also, one theory suggests that Berlin will be returning and this may happen through flashbacks.
Furthermore, “Money Heist” season 5 has been confirmed to welcome two new characters. As per Express, one of these new arrivals will be El Professor’s new rival. They are Miguel Ángel Silvestre and Patrick Criado from the two; many are convinced the former will be the gang leader’s enemy.
The guess came up after Alex Pina described what the new villain is like. He said that the antagonist in “Money Heist” season 5 will be charismatic and brilliant at the same time.
“We always try to bring in charismatic, intelligent and brilliant opponents,” he said. “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.”
Pina’s description fits Silvestre very well so no wonder, people are saying he will be the one to make El Professor’s life difficult following Alicia’s firing as inspector. In any case, “Money Heist” season 5 may arrive in the second half of 2021.
