On the sad occasion of the final season, Netflix shared a photo on their Twitter account featuring the cast members.

The photo perfectly captures the actors in a candid moment as they're clad in their trademark red jumpsuits.

Netflix thanked the fans around the world for their immense support.

"We can't wait to show you how this story ends (sic)," the post read.

Fact: 'Started as a heist, ended as a family'

Season five will see the return of our favorite characters - Professor (Alvaro Morte), Tokyo (Ursula Cobero), Helsinki (Darko Peric), Denver (Jaime Lorente), Rio (Miguel Herrán), Stockholm (Esther Acebo), and Lisbon (Itziar Ituno).

Alba Flores, who played Nairobi, doesn't feature in the photograph, hinting that her character is done for good.

Cliffhanger: Will the Professor survive after being held at guponit?

Season 4 of Money Heist ended on a huge cliffhanger as Sierra holds the Professor at gunpoint.

Surprisingly, she sings the resistance song Bella Ciao as the credit rolls in the season 4 finale.

With no release date announced for the fifth season, fans have to wait a bit longer to find out what happens next.

Will the Professor survive? Only time will tell.

Farewell: Berlin and Professor bid farewell to the show

The actors who portray the roles of Professor and Berlin already said goodbye to the show via social media.

Morte thanked the fans in his post and said that he would miss having such a good time playing Professor.

Pedro Alonso (Berlin) also thanked Morte and said, "One of those that really deserve to be kept in a treasure chest after the odyssey."

Origin: Netflix breathed new life into the Spanish crime drama

Money Heist originally started off as La Casa de Papel on a Spanish channel called Antena 3 in 2017.

The show didn't get many eyeballs there but was later acquired by Netflix.

Thanks to its worldwide reach and dubbing in multiple languages, Money Heist became one of the most-watched non-English shows on the streaming platform and one of the most-watched shows overall as well.

Adaptation: 'Money Heist' to become a K-drama soon

The series has been such a worldwide phenomenon that Netflix is now developing a Korean adaptation of the show.

The 12-episode first season will be made in collaboration with BH Entertainment and Contents Zium.

Netflix has even announced the cast of the show including Yoo Ji-Tae as the Professor, Park Hae-Soo as Berlin, Jun Jung-Seo as Tokyo, among others.
