Money Heist season 5 is dropping on September 3
The hit Spanish crime thriller is back at the start of September
Following a tantalising teaser trailer posted by Netlfix today, it has been revealed that the fifth season of the blockbuster original show, Money Heist, will be dropping on September 3rd. Popcorn at the ready.
This year's season will be ten episodes but split into two halves, with the second "volume" arriving three months later on December 3rd. Well, Feliz Navidad!
The show's creator, Álex Pina - who was also behind another Netlfix original, White Lines (co-written by the team behind The Crown) - said that "when we began to write Part 5 in the midst of the pandemic, we felt that we had to change what was expected from the ten-episode season".
He describes using the mid-season break and finale format, also seen in shows like Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead in recent years, as an attempt to use "every tool we could to create the sensation of a season finale or series finale in the first volume itself".
