Praised for its comedic elements, addictive storyline, innovative subversion of heist TV/movie tropes and feminist themes captured the hearts of millions across the world.
Joining a star-studded cast consisting of Úrsula Coberó (Tokyo), Álvaro Morte (The Professor), Itziar Ituño (Lisbon),Najwa Nimri (Inspector Sierra) among many other, is Miguel Ángel Silvestre of Sense 8 fame and Patrick Criado from La Gran Familia Española.
About the final season executive producer and showrunner Pina said, “We have spent almost a year thinking about how to destroy the band. How to put the Professor on the ropes? How to get into situations that are irreversible for many characters? The result is the fifth season of La Casa de Papel. The war reaches its most extreme and savage levels, but it is also the most epic and exciting season.”
