The best things in life come in small doses! They have this sweet-sour combination that always leaves you yearning for more, but before you know it, they are gone! That is why we are both happy and sad to announce that the last five episodes of this Spanish crime drama that has hooked us since 2017 will be released on Friday 3rd December.
Netflix Updates (@NetflxUpdates) tweeted on 29 November with the caption, “5 days to go until Money Heist Part 5: Vol. 2!” and a Photo Grid of the cast members’ bittersweet moments on-set and off-set.

In my opinion, Money Heist has so far been the second-best crime drama series, right after Vince Gilligan’s neo-Western crime drama, Breaking Bad that aired from January 20, 2008, to September 29, 2013. Coincidentally, Breaking Bad also consisted of five seasons for 62 episodes.
What to Expect from the 2nd Half?
While the first half was action-packed, Netflix’s trailer of the series displays a more sombre ending for the show. If you’ve already binged through part one of season 5, you’re already going through all sorts of shock, from the Professor being scrambled out of his hideout to the bank robbers being surprisingly caught.
Watch Netflix’s trailer right now to get a glimpse of what happens next.
Who Are the Cast Members?
While season 5 part 1 had a jaw-dropping end, with the death of the character Tokyo (Úrsula Corberó), who sacrificed herself for the team, Corberó will return for a flashback cameo role along with continuing as the series’ narrator.
The show’s mastermind, The Professor (Álvaro Morte), also returns for a leading role, in cohorts with the ill-reputed police detective Alicia Sierra (Najwa Nimri). The despised villain character, Arturo Román (Enrique Arce), will also return, as fans eagerly wait to see his fate, given he is in a critical condition.
Other characters returning to seal their fate include Raquel Murillo aka Lisbon (Itziar Ituño), Rio (Miguel Herrán), Stockholm (Esther Acebo), Denver (Jaime Lorente), Helsinki (Darko Peric), Manila (Belén Cuesta), Bogotá (Hovik Keuchkerian) and Palermo (Rodrigo de la Serna).
The show’s three directors Koldo Serra, Jesús Colmenar and Álex Rodrigo, will also work alongside the cast.
