'Money Heist' Season 5 Part 2: 5 things to know about Netflix show's final five episodes
The Spanish phenomenon will be returning for the final set of episodes on December 3
Netflix has given a platform to many foreign directors to showcase their talent in front of the world by collaborating with the streaming service. There have been several shows that garnered roaring success as soon as they dropped on Netflix and turned into a phenomenon.
Shows like ‘Who Killed Sara?’ and ‘Narcos’ are prime examples of how good writing can make the show a worldwide success. However, there’s one show that put Netflix on the global map and made it one of the biggest streaming platforms across the globe. Yes, you are right. We are talking about the blockbuster Spanish series ‘Money Heist’. The series, which started in 2017 on a local Spanish TV channel, was picked up by Netflix in late 2017 and what happened next was something that no one ever expected.
The series blew up and began trending in various parts of the world, transcending the language barrier and entertaining tens of millions of non-Spanish speakers from around the world. Season after season, the Spanish show exceeded all the expectations and made viewership records for Netflix. However, every good thing must come to an end and it seems this is where we bid adieu to our Heist gang.
The show is set to enthrall viewers with the final 5 episodes that will reveal the fate of our heist team. So, let’s get to know more about Volume 2 of ‘Money Heist’ Part 5.
When does ‘Money Heist’ Part 5 Vol 2’ release and where can you watch it

What is ‘Money Heist’ all about?
The primary focus of the show is on a group of robbers trying to accomplish a heist that has never been done. However, they all have a valid reason for joining this heist and they are adamant that if they go out, they will go out by successfully completing their missing. The heist team has lost some of its members during its altercation with security forces, but they continue to do what they have intended to. However, Volume 2 of ‘Money Heist’ Part 5 will see every story getting concluded.
There are a lot of things that viewers will be looking forward to. Some of the burning questions that the show might address are:
Will Officer Alicia (Najwa Nimri) take Professor (Alvaro Morte) to the police? This might be the highlight of the show if Alicia takes the mastermind out of the equation by taking him to the police.
Will Berlin’s son Rafael join the team? During Volume 1 of ‘Money Heist’ Part 5, we saw Berlin (Pedro Alonso) meeting his son Rafael (Albero Amarilla) after a long time and making him learn how he accomplishes a heist. Now, Rafael has also joined his father in the heist business.
Will every member of the heist team die? Now, that’s the biggest question that would be getting addressed in the final set of episodes. With The Professor joining the team in their final endeavor, we might see some big names breathing their last.
