A new promo has been released for the fifth and final season of the hit Spanish-crime series Money Heist – and there’s more to come.

Netflix revealed the teaser on Twitter on Monday, which shows the Professor chained up by ex-inspector Alicia Sierra, who was holding the criminal mastermind at gunpoint in the shocking season four finale.

Sierra – who is played by Najwa Nimri – will now hold all the cards moving into the final season, with the fate of El Professor – who is depicted by Álvaro Morte – looking bleak at best.

Season four ended with the Professor’s team preparing for a bloody war with the Spanish police inside the Bank of Spain, but what will they do without their leader?

The description for the final season reads: “The gang has been shut in the Bank of Spain for over 100 hours.

“They have managed to rescue Lisbon, but their darkest moment is upon them after losing one of their own.”

“The Professor has been captured by Sierra and, for the first time, doesn’t have an escape plan.

“Just when it seems like nothing else could go wrong, an enemy comes on the scene that is much more powerful than any they’ve faced: the army.

“The end of the greatest heist in history is approaching, and what began as a robbery will turn into a war.”

A caption at the end of the clip confirms that an official trailer will be released on August 2 – and we can’t wait.

Úrsula Corberó will return as Tokio and Itziar Ituño will return as Raquel Murillo (or Lisbon) in the fifth season of the hit show.

The cast will also include Pedro Alonso as Berlin, Miguel Herrán as Rio and Jamie Lorente as Denver.

The hugely popular series will come to a close in two parts, with Part 5: Volume 1 will hit screens on September 3 while Volume 2 arrives on December 3.

And fans are preparing themselves for more death after the much-loved Nairobi – played by Alba Flores – met her demise at the end of season four.

Filming for the final season finished on May 14, and fans have been eagerly awaiting its arrival.

Netflix struck gold with the Spanish show, with the last season watched by 65 million individual accounts within the first month of its release – making Money Heist, or La Casa de Papel, one of the most popular non-English series in the streaming giant’s history.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly about the final season, Álex Pina, the show’s creator, said: “The war reaches its most extreme and savage levels, but it is also the most epic and exciting season,

“We are moving from a chess game – a mere intellectual strategy – to a war strategy: attack and contention.”

Are you looking forward to the final season?
