Since season 5 concluded, fans have been eager to know when Money Heist season 6 will be released. Since its inception, Money Heist, or La Casa de Papel in Spanish, has captivated audiences worldwide with its thrilling heists and complex characters. The series follows a group of individuals led by a mastermind known as the Professor as they execute audacious heists, adopting the code names of different cities worldwide.

As it stands, there are no plans for Money Heist season 6. The series was initially planned for five parts, which concluded in December 2021. So, any reports and speculated release dates are false. The final installment of season 5 brought a fitting conclusion to the story and was declared the series' endpoint.


Why are there no plans for Money Heist season 6?

There won't be a Money Heist season 6 is going the Yellowstone route of spin-offs. While there may not be a direct continuation in Money Heist season 6, Netflix has ventured into spin-off territory. In 2022, the streaming giant introduced Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area, which offers a unique spin on the original concept.
