The official trailer
In addition, Netflix has posted the season’s official trailer for volume 1, a premiere fans have been anxiously expecting in order to see the famous gang robbers in action again.
This new volume will dispel many of the doubts left at the end of season 4, from what will finally happen to the Professor, to the Banco de España robbery resolution.

How many episodes will there be in season 5?
“When we started writing part 5 during the pandemic, we felt we needed to change what fans where expecting of a current 10-episode season and we tried to find the best way for the first volume to feel like an end of season, an end to the story," Money Heist's Producer Alex Pina said.
"We decided to work with an extreme warlike gender that places the gang in tough positions for the first part, on the other hand, volume 2 will be more focused on the emotional angle of our characters."
The number of episodes for both volumes was a mystery until Friday, when Volume 1 was released, revealing five episodes. Therefore, following what Alex Pina said, volume 2 is expected to have another five, however, it will be disclosed by Netflix on the release's set date, just in the same way as the first part of the season.
Time of premier for both volumes
The first five episodes of the last season will be released Friday at 9:00 a.m. in Spain, which is when all new Netflix shows premiere in Spain.
In other countries the time will vary according to the time zone:
