Money Heist season 5 plot
"The gang has been shut in the Bank of Spain for over 100 hours," reads the synopsis. "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."
The show's creator, Álex Pina, has promised us that the final season will go out with a bang with "the most epic part of all the parts we've shot."
"The war reaches its most extreme and savage levels, but it is also the most epic and exciting season," Pina told Entertainment Weekly.
"We are moving from a chess game - a mere intellectual strategy - to a war strategy: attack and contention.
"We always try that our opponents be charismatic, intelligent, shiny. In this case, in pure war film genre, we also look for characters whose intelligence can measure up against The Professor's," he added.
"Adrenaline is within Money Heist's DNA. Every thirty seconds things take place and disrupt the characters, a turn of the screw to the action. The adrenaline mixed with feelings arising from absolutely complex, magnetic, unforeseeable characters will continue until the end of the heist to the Bank of Spain.
"However, the gang will now be pushed into irreversible situations, into a wild war: it is the most epic part of all the parts we've shot."
We can't wait to see it.
