Money Heist Season 5 cast: New faces to get featured

There wouldn’t be much of a shift in the cast of Money Heist season 5. One will get to see Úrsula Corberó as Tokyo, Álvaro Morte as The Professor, Itziar Ituño as Lisbon, Esther Acebo as Stockholm, Jaime Lorente as Denver, Rodrigo De Los Angeles Serna as Palermo, Darko Peric as Helsinki, Herrán as Rio, and Pedro Alonso as Berlin of course. There is a high possibility of Alba Flores not being there in the next part, considering her character ‘Nairobi’ was shot dead in the fourth season.

Apart from the existing cast, three more characters are reported to be seen: Miguel Ángel Silvestre, whose character is most certainly thought to be of a new villain; the second cast member announced is Patrick Criado; and lastly, José Manuel Seda. Fans can expect these new additions in the next part of Money Heist.

Rumors are that the production of the next season has already begun. If that is the case, we can very well expect the new season to launch in 2021, but at the same time we shouldn’t forget that the present global pandemic situation might take a toll on the filming schedules.
