However, in December 2017, Netflix released it worldwide, covering the show in 22 episodes after acquiring streaming rights.

The 4th part was released in 2020, and in July 2020, the streamer renewed it once again for its fifth and final part.

Sadly, no specific release date is announced by the streaming giant yet. However, during a conversation with their shareholders, Netflix did drop a major hint for all the fans and viewers. Netflix presented a list of all the shows which will release in the second half of 2021. luckily, Money Heist season 5 was also on the list. This means that we can expect Money Heist’s last installment to drop anytime between July and December.
Until now, the actors of the show were indirectly updating the fans regarding the production status of the show. Season 5 began filming in July 2020, according to the update given by the Vancouver Media (the company behind Money Heist/ La Casa Da Papel). Later, pictures featuring Pedro Alonso (Plays Berlin) were dropped online. And he looked dapper as always. Following Alonso, actors such as Alvaro Morte, Ursala Corbero, and Itziar Ituño also posted their pictures from the set of the upcoming season. It looked like they are almost done, but, that’s what we thought.
New pictures from the set were shared frequently. Actress Najwa Nimri also shared videos and photos from the set. The final season has been shot at Copenhagen, Denmark, Portugal, and Spain including Madrid.

In August, Netflix revealed that two new handsome men will join season 5. Sense8 alum Miguel Ángel Silvestre and Patrick Criado will be joining the cast. The identities of the new members are not out at the moment. But, the two seem to be very happy after joining the team.
Miguel Ángel Silvestre earlier expressed his joy on Instagram. He wrote, “Mamaaaa! How lucky I am? Maximo of joy!” (Translated from Spanish). It is assumed that Miguel will be appearing in the role of a villain. Will he be a part of Alicia’s Team, or will he stirrup troubles of his own? Well, we will find out soon.
As for, Patrick Criado, he mentioned his happiness on social media as well. he wrote, “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.” Criado is known for his work in The Aspirant, Plastic Sea, and The King.
Many fans are disheartened because they won’t be seeing Nairobi (Alba Flores) in the new season. After brutally dying in the season 4 finale, Nairobi has exited the show. However, she will still appear in the first episode of season 5. It has to be a flashback sequence because only miracle or magic can bring Nairobi back to life.
Apart from this, all the regular cast members will join the final season.
