The streaming service tells us that season five will be broken up into two volumes, with the first set dropping on September 3, before the second volume touches down on December 3.
Explaining that decision, the show's creator Álex Pina, 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,"
Season four of the show left viewers reeling with a serious increase in pace, as well as a body count that eclipsed the previous three seasons together.
It could have been expected that the second heist might have concluded at the end of the last season, as the first one wrapped up after season two, but the show's creators and writers decided to keep the audience guessing for at least another season.
However, as season four departed on a cliffhanger, fans quickly reasoned that the show must be coming back for another spin, and when it was confirmed in July 2020 Netflix left fans even more excited to see what happens by using the tagline: "The heist will come to an end."
Now, we don't know whether the heist will come to an end in season five volume one or two, but it does suggest a certain finality to the whole thing.
After shooting the latest season at locations across Spain, Denmark, and Portugal - no easy feat given the pandemic that has been happening - it was confirmed that season five will feature 10 episodes.
That means - most likely - that each volume will contain five episodes.
Money Heist has quickly risen up through the popularity ranks at Netflix and was ranked their second most popular show in April last year.

People have become absolutely hooked onto the narrative, and the fate of the characters involved.
As Alvaro Morte, who plays The Professor, said: "It's pure rock'n'roll,
"Once you see the first chapter of the show, you are lost in it."
Season five volume one of Money Heist will be available on Netflix from September 3, with volume two following on December 3.
