Over a year ago, the battle cry "For Nairobi! For Nairobi! For Nairobi!" One of Our Favorite Thieves marked the end of the fourth season of Money Heist. After a long wait, the first part of season 5 of the successful Spanish series is about to premiere on Netflix. With it, new characters arrive that will undoubtedly add drama and excitement to the great heist of the Bank of Spain.
Next September 3, 2021, will be the beginning of the end for our beloved band of red jumpsuits and Dalí masks. Volume one of the fifth season will immerse us in a situation never seen before: Tokyo and company are cornered in the Bank of Spain without the help of the Professor, who for the first time does not have an ace up his sleeve to get rid of the wrath of the Inspector Sierra.
Not having the mastermind who has saved them time and time again will be a complex journey and more because now they will have to face a new enemy with a great thirst for justice and revenge: the army.
Actor José Manuel Seda plays Sagasta, Commander of the Special Forces of the Spanish Army, who has an extremely loyal team determined to do whatever it takes, no matter how ruthless the actions, to fulfil his mission.
The introduction of the army certainly explains why Álex Pina, the creator of the series, warned that this season would show us the most extreme and savage levels of the war between our favorite robbers and the law.
Best of all, Sagasta and his military team aren't the only ones bringing drama and excitement to this latest installment. The past of Tokyo and Berlin will also haunt our protagonists.
You may not remember it, but when we met Tokyo, the impulsive young woman confessed that she had abandoned the love of her life, with whom she began her life of crime and robbery, in a pool of blood. Just this man is René, who will be played by Miguel Ángel Silvestre, an actor that we have seen in other Netflix productions such as Sky Rojo and Sense8.
Finally, the new member of the fifth season of Money Heist cast is Rafael (Patrick Criado), the son of Berlin. Although the Professor's brother died in the first season, in each new part, we discover more of his life, and in this last part, we will have the opportunity to meet his intelligent son who, in Berlin's words," is a nuclear warhead that devastates everything."
Rafael is no longer a child, but a 31-year-old man who studied computer engineering at MIT. Your computer skills could be of great help to Tokyo and the company. However, Rafael is convinced that he is not like his father.
These three new main characters join our old acquaintances: Tokio (Úrsula Corberó), The Professor (Álvaro Morte), Berlin (Pedro Alonso), Denver (Jaime Lorente), Lisbon (Itziar Ituño), Helsinki (Darko Peric), Rio (Miguel Hernán), Stockholm (Esther Acebo), Palermo (Rodrigo de la Serna), Manila (Belén Cuesta), Bogotá (Hovik Keuchkerian) and Marseille (Luka Peros).
All of them return to the small screen on September 3, 2021, with the premiere of season 5 of Money Heist. However, once you finish all the chapters of the first half of this fifth installment, you will have a few months to prepare for the last goodbye. Finally, on December 2, 2021, volume two and the end point of Money Heist will be released. Are you ready?
