This week marks the premiere of Money Heist Part 5: Volume 1. The final season of Money Heist premieres this Friday, September 3. But for Part 5, Netflix is doing things a bit differently. Instead of releasing all 10 episodes at once, there will be two volumes to this last installment. Volume 1 will be composed of five episodes and premiere in September. That will then be followed by the final five episodes in December.
Money Heist, also known as La Casa de Papel, first premiered as an Antena 3 show that seemed destined for cancelation. Then Netflix swooped in and saved the day. Since premiering in 2017, the world-spanning series has won Best Drama Series at the International Emmy Awards and has become the most-watched non-English-language show on Netflix. It’s so big the Italian anti-fascist song “Bella Ciao,” which plays throughout the series, became an actual summer hit in 2018. Money Heist is and remains a phenomenon.
