Here’s a reminder: You have about a week to catch up on the first four seasons of hit Spanish crime series La Casa de Papel or Money Heist. The anticipated Season 5 is about to drop on Netflix real soon and you wouldn’t want to miss out on all the action or hide from all the spoilers on your timeline. Money Heist follows the story of red jumpsuit-clad robbers led by a criminal mastermind who has managed time and again to save everyone from the police. But now, the stakes are higher. Here’s what we know so far about Season 5.
Warning: Spoilers ahead!
What is Season 5 about?
Ruthless agent Sierra (Najwa Nimri) managed to find the Professor (Álvaro Morte) and is now holding him hostage leaving the robbers without a mastermind and a plan. Meanwhile, the police are about to bust inside the bank with the help of soldiers and army tanks. Everything is chaotic but how our robbers worm their way out of the mess is the most exciting part of the series.
Season 5 will also be introducing new characters starting with…
Rafael, Berlin’s son
Although Berlin (Pedro Alonso) has been dead for some time now, his character is so central to Money Heist’s overall plot that we see him so much every season. We’re not complaining though. For the past seasons, we got a glimpse of his private life including his wedding to Tatiana. This season, we’re finally going to meet his son, Rafael (Patrick Criado).
Money Heist producers have previously revealed that Rafael studies engineering at MIT in Massachusetts. He is also clear about one thing: he does not wish to be like his father.
René, Tokyo’s ex-boyfriend

Another character we’ll be meeting is René (Miguel Ángel Silvestre). During the opening scenes of Season 1, Tokyo (Úrsula Corberó) talks about the “love of her life” while news footage shows someone apparently shot dead in a street by the cops. “The last time I saw him, I left him in a pool of blood with his eyes open.” René is obviously a huge part of Tokyo’s past since they were partners in crime. This season, we’ll see him in key flashbacks that prove just how much of an influence he is to our main character.
A new villain
Actor José Manuel Seda is the third new character to be introduced for Season 5. Although not much has been revealed about him, Netflix did release a photo of him in an army uniform next to a tank. Fans speculate that he will be part or leader of the military team deployed to take back the Bank of Spain from the robbers.
Will we be seeing Nairobi?
As for recurring characters, we still have the rest of the crew: Tokyo, Lisbon, Rio, Denver (Jaime Lorente), Stockholm (Esther Acebo), and Helsinki (Darko Peric). And even though fans of the show have probably had enough of him, we will also be seeing Arturo Román (Enrique Arce).
Two release dates
Will there be a sixth season?
