*WARNING: Spoilers ahead for Money Heist season 5*

The characters of Money Heist (aka. La Casa De Papel) live their lives in constant danger and that’s hardly surprising given the high-stakes heists they take part in.

At the end of season 4, the fate of the gang’s leader, the Professor, was left up in the air as he was captured and held at gunpoint by the rogue Alicia Sierra of the Spanish police.

Fans were left fearing for the character but just what happens to the Professor in Money Heist season 5, does Sergio die?

The Professor captured in season 4 finale

Since Money Heist first began in 2017, Sergio Marquina (aka. The Professor) has been a key component of the show’s gang of criminals as he’s their leader and masterminds their daring heists.

However, the season 4 finale proved that even the Professor’s best-laid plans don’t always succeed as the rogue and pregnant police officer, Alicia Sierra, managed to track the Professor to his secret storm drain hideout.

Fans were left in shock as season 4 ended with the Professor being held at gunpoint by Sierra just as the credits rolled and viewers were forced to wait more than a year to find out what happened next.


Does the Professor die in Money Heist season 5?

  • No, the Professor does not die in part 1 of Money Heist season 5.

It certainly doesn’t look good for the Professor in the early episodes of season 5 as Sierra attempts to extract information from him about his plans for the ongoing heist.

The Professor reveals nothing, however, even when Sierra shoots him in the foot.

Eventually, the pair are joined by Benjamin and Marseille but despite their greater numbers, Sierra manages to subdue them all and holds them all prisoner. That is until her water breaks and she goes into labour.

In excruciating pain, she gets the Professor and co to help deliver her baby, which she names Victoria, but when she has a moment alone in the bathroom, she readies herself for a potential fight and escape, possibly to come in season 5, part 2 as the Professor turns his attention back to the chaotic heist in progress.


When is season 5, part 2 released?

  • Part 2 of Money Heist season 5 is released on December 3rd, 2021.

Following the release of the first five episodes on September 3rd, the remaining five episodes in the season will be released in three months’ time.

When Money Heist was renewed for season 5 back in July 2020, it was confirmed that the fifth instalment would also serve as the final season.

That means there are only five more episodes until we find out if the Professor’s heist crew can succeed in pulling off their daring heist of the Bank of Spain.


Part 1 of Money Heist season 5 is available to stream now on Netflix after releasing on September 3rd, 2021.
