The show’s actors have been posting about their final days on set on social media in recent weeks.
“Money Heist” is Netflix’s most successful Spanish series to date, and was its top non-English-language foray until French series “Lupin” debuted in December.
The show centers on a group of misfit con artists and robbers who convene under the guidance of “the Professor” to rob major banks in Spain. The series originated on Spanish network Antena 3 to lukewarm ratings before Netflix swooped in and breathed new life into the program, transforming it into the biggest show to ever emerge from the Spanish market.
Netflix revealed the show would come to an end with season 5 last summer.
“We’ve spent almost a year thinking about how to break up the band,” said creator and showrunner Alex Pina at the time. “How to put the Professor on the ropes. How to get into situations that are irreversible for many characters. The result is the fifth part of ‘La Casa de Papel.’ The war reaches its most extreme and savage levels, but it is also the most epic and exciting season.”
