Money Heist Season 5 was worth waiting and you will not be able to leave it until you chose to move on to another web series. The fifth and the final season of the Spanish web series was released on Netflix on Friday.
Money Heist, aka La Casa de Papel in Spanish, was first aired in 2017 on Netflix. At that time, it became an international sensation. Season 5 would be concluded in two parts, Part 1 aired on September 3 and Part 2 would be released on December 3.
Money Heist Review: Recap
The fourth season ends with Alicia pointing a gun at the professor. While Raquel is all set to head the team for the last phases of the heist finding a way out of the Bank of Spain. At the bank, hostages are getting out of control and the team is not yet out of Nairobi's death.
The team is not only fighting with cops and the system, an internal war is also going on.
The professor’s squad has rescued Lisbon and has lost someone. Lisbon and Stockholm have become the face of the heist. This time, the show will stop normalizing the problematic acts that it has been ignoring – sexism and abuse, as three women are leading the squad.
Part 1 is all about the stories of the characters highlighting an intricate plan which they would use to escape from the police, but how will they do the same?
This time, the show has lack of creativity but it is Money Heist and the last part is yet to release. So maybe it would flourish and show its magic in the last moments of the web series.
Money Heist Season 5: Official Synopsis
The official synopsis for Money Heist season 5 from Netflix read, “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.”
