Netflix's Money Heist is officially back for season five, and the streaming giant has just revealed a release date and trailer.
If you're still reeling over *that* cliffhanger of the fourth season of Money Heist, you'll be pleased to know that season five is officially on its way! It was confirmed in July 2020 with Netflix using the tagline, "The heist will come to an end." Hmm, sounds ominous to say the least. Although we don't know how the series will conclude (although it's probably safe to assume it'll be jam-packed with action), we've got everything you could possibly need to know about the upcoming season, including cast, release date and the trailer.
What will Money Heist season 5 be about?
The official synopsis reads: "The gang has been shut in the Bank of Spain for over 100 hours. They have managed to rescue Lisbon, but their darkest moment is upon them after losing one of their own. The Professor has been captured by Sierra and, for the first time, doesn’t have an escape plan.
"Just when it seems like nothing else could go wrong, an enemy comes on the scene that is much more powerful than any they’ve faced: the army. The end of the greatest heist in history is approaching, and what began as a robbery will turn into a war."
Is there a trailer for Money Heist season 5?
Yep. Be warned, it's pretty intense. Watch it above! Netflix also dropped a second trailer on 2nd August:
And a load of teaser pictures from the final season on 3rd June:

Explaining the decision to release season five in two parts, Álex Pina, the show’s creator, said, "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 and used every tool we could to create the sensation of a season finale or series finale in the first volume itself.
"We decided to work in an extremely aggressive genre, putting The Gang on the ropes. In volume 2, we focus more on the emotional situation of the characters. It is a journey across their sentimental map that connects us directly to their departure."
