The team will continue their fight against Arturo Román (Enrique Arce), who was left fighting for his life, and Colonel Tamayo (Fernando Cayo).

We are also likely to see Pedro Alonso and Patrick Criado reprise their roles as  Berlin and Rafael respectively.

Will there be a Money Heist season 6?

The trailer for season 5 part 2 states that the ‘world’s greatest heist will come to an end,’ meaning that the final five episodes will be the squad’s last outing under the Money Heist banner.

However, series creator Alex Pina recently revealed that there could be spin-offs of the show.

“We do have many possibilities for some spin-offs, yes, and I think that’s thanks to the strong and powerful identities of the characters,” the producer told OprahMag in 2020.

“We’ve always looked for characters to have a very complex, layered design. So I think almost every character of Money Heist has a duality that we would like to see in a spinoff. We could watch any of them in other contexts.

“I think Arturito could have a black comedy. Berlin’s case for his own show is very clear – he’s a misogynist, a psychopath, egocentric, a narcissist, a delinquent, a rapist… but still there are lots of people who adore him, because he values friendship, loyalty or fraternity,” he continued.

“From Nairobi to El Profesor… Denver is yet another character with his own charm. I would love to write all of them as spinoffs.”
