- “House of Money” is one of the biggest hit series on Netflix.
- In the fifth season, the professor and his band of robbers stand with their backs to the wall in the Bank of Spain.
- The new episodes of the Spanish series from September 3rd will show whether the thieves with the Dalí masks will manage to escape again.
Viva España – true to this motto, Netflix has landed a few series hits in recent years. Before Spanish productions like “Elite”, “Sky Rojo” or “Who murdered Sara?” advanced to success, the foundation stone was laid with a Heist series, which is still a prestige project of the streaming service today: “House of Money”.
The meaning of the series by creator Álex Pina goes beyond the pure effect on the screen. Not only did the expressionless Dalí masks and the red overalls of the bank robbers become bestsellers all over the world, the partisan song “Bella Ciao” also experienced a remarkable revival thanks to “House of Money” and conquered the charts.
Accordingly, the fans of the successful series are looking forward to the fifth season. Before Netflix makes new episodes available for download on September 3, you will find everything you need to know about the start of the season in this overview.
Beware, spoilers! From this point on, do not read any further if you have not seen seasons 1 to 4 yet – or would like to be completely surprised by season 5.
What has happened in the “House of Money” so far?
Brilliantly planned robberies and charismatic characters – this combination made the “Oceans” series of films about lead actor George Clooney a box-office hit. “House of Money” also uses this recipe for success. In the first two seasons, the Netflix series told of the bold attack of a group of thieves on a banknote printing company.
As an ingenious mastermind behind the plan, the professor (Álvaro Morte) not only led his robbers into the print shop, but also saved them from being accessed by the police thanks to clever maneuvers. Tokyo (Úrsula Corberó), Rio (Miguel Herrán) and their comrades-in-arms managed to escape at the end of season two after a nerve-racking game of cat and mouse.
But the story was far from over. At the beginning of season three, the police discovered Rio. From then on, the old troop decided to free their colleague and to implement another plan of the professor: to plunder the national reserve of the Bank of Spain. But the ambitious undertaking soon claimed its first victims. Nairobi (Alba Flores) succumbed to serious injuries in season four.
What can fans expect in season 5?
The situation for the robbers in the Dalí masks has never been more hopeless: The professor lost control of his team after Alicia Sierra (Najwa Nimri) exposed him in his hiding place. In the meantime, the emergency services are doing everything in their power to end the attack – even if the army is needed …
Who is playing?
The actors of the Netflix production, who were initially only known in their Spanish homeland, became internationally sought-after stars. Miguel Herrán (Rio) and Jaime Lorente (Denver) were recommended for their roles in the Heist series for leading roles in the Spanish Netflix series “Elite”. Lorente also got his own series on Amazon Prime Video with the historical epic “El Cid”.
For Úrsula Corberó, who leads Tokyo through “House of Money” as the narrator, she got a leading role in the sci-fi hit “Snake Eyes – GI Joe Origins” (currently in theaters). Not to be forgotten: Professor actor Álvaro Morte, who got a top-class engagement with the lead role in the series “The Pier”.
How many episodes does a season have?
The size of the seasons varies. The 13 episodes in the opening season was the highest number of episodes so far. The attack on the banknote printing plant was told to the end in season two in nine more episodes.
The second coup in the national reserve of the Bank of Spain has so far comprised 16 episodes, divided into the three and four equally long seasons.
The final fifth season consists of ten episodes.
Can the series also be bought on DVD and Blu-ray?
Although viewers can purchase a DVD and Blu-ray box with all previous seasons, it is only available in the original Spanish sound. The German dubbed version is only available for streaming via Netflix.
When can I see the series?
New episodes of “House of Money” await fans from September 3rd on Netflix. Then the first five episodes of the final season will be available for download. Another five episodes will follow on December 3rd.
“House of Money” fans had to be patient for a year and a half, among other things, the production of the final season was delayed due to postponements in the wake of the corona pandemic. Analogous to the third and fourth seasons, the new episodes were created under the aegis of Netflix. The Spanish TV broadcaster Antena 3 produced the first two seasons.
