Pina will act as executive producer and showrunner with Jesús Colmenar, Koldo Serra and Álex Rodrigo directing.

Pina said, “We’ve spent almost a year thinking about how to break up the band. How to put the Professor on the ropes. How to get into situations that are irreversible for many characters. The result is the fifth part of La Casa de Papel. The war reaches its most extreme and savage levels, but it is also the most epic and exciting season.”
