Netflix recently confirmed that Money Heist has been renewed for its fifth and final season. The Spanish crime-drama starring Álvaro Morte as The Professor, Úrsula Corberó as Tokyo, Itziar Ituño as Raquel and Pedro Alonso as Berlin, among others ended on a cliffhanger in its last season.

Spoilers ahead

Money Heist’s season four had a worldwide release on April 3, 2020. One of the biggest shocks was the death of Nairobi, played by Alba Flores. The season also showed Raquel aka Lisbon entering the Bank of Spain, where the gang is currently undertaking its second heist.

In the last few months, its cast and crew members have spoken about what lays ahead in season five, leaving fans excited. Here are things which might decide the fate of the show’s major characters.

Lisbon to die?

Soon after the release of season four, Álvaro Morte revealed how he sees the end of his character The Professor on the show. According to Express UK, while speaking at the Chelsea Film Festival in May 2020, he said, “The Professor was a very weird guy, a very lonely guy and what happened with the band and finding love, it’s a really small chapter in his life. If we’re talking about the end of the character, I think at one point, I’d like to see him go back to that loneliness, that solitary life that he’s more used to and seems more comfortable in.” His words have left fans speculating whether his love interest Raquel aka Lisbon will die or part ways in the upcoming season.

Miguel Ángel Silvestre and Patrick Criado to enter the show

Show’s creator Álex Pina confirmed with Entertainment Weekly that actors Miguel Ángel Silvestre and Patrick Criado will be joining the cast in the next season. Though the gang overpowered Gandía, we aren’t sure whether he is alive or dead. This might give way to Miguel Ángel Silvestre becoming the new villain.

Manila’s backstory

Pina told the publication that there’s more to the character of Manila. The upcoming season will delve deeper into Denver’s childhood friend, who is a trangender and poses as one of the hostages.

Standoff between Alicia and The Professor

The last shot of Money Heist season four showed Alicia Sierra discovering Professor’s hideout and taking him at gunpoint. Pina also revealed to Entertainment Weekly that the following season will see a standoff between the two opponents.

Alicia’s real identity

From Alicia turning out to be Tatiana, to her joining the heist team, fans have been discussing her real identity for a long time now. Many also speculate that Berlin is her real husband German, who’s been referred to several times in the last season.

A 10-episode season

Money Heist 5 has been locked as a ten-episode season. Showrunner Álex Pina said in a statement, “We have spent almost a year thinking about how to destroy the band. How to put the Professor on the ropes? How to get into situations that are irreversible for many characters? The result is the fifth season of La Casa de Papel. The war reaches its most extreme and savage levels, but it is also the most epic and exciting season.”

The production of Money Heist 5 got delayed due to the spread of coronavirus. The show eventually went on floors on August 3.
