Netflix, in its first-quarter financial results, confirmed the release of several shows, including Money Heist 5, The Witcher 2, You 3, Cobra Kai 4 and others in the second half of 2021.
Netflix Life has confirmed the return of its hit show Money Heist, along with several other popular titles, in the second half of 2021. The announcement came as fans across the world were awaiting news about Money Heist 5, which was previously expected to arrive in May 2021, but got delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
In the Letter to Shareholders in the Q1 earnings report, Netflix confirmed that Money Heist will premiere its fifth and final season in the later half of 2021. Ted Sarandos, co-CEO and Chief Content Officer revealed the same on the company’s investor video for its first-quarter financial results.
According to Deadline, Ted Sarandos said in the meeting, “What happened in the first part of this year was that a lot of the projects that we’d hoped to come out earlier did get pushed because of the post-production delays and Covid delays and we think we’ll get back to a much steadier state in the back half of the year, certainly in Q4 where we have the returning seasons of some of our most popular shows like The Witcher and You and Cobra Kai as well as some big tentpole movies that came to market a little slower than we’d hoped like Red Notice and Escape From Spiderhead.”
La Casa De Papel or Money Heist, which was renewed by Netflix for its fifth season in July last year, went on floors in August. And since its fourth season arrived in April 2020, the fifth one was touted for the same time this year. But seems like its production work got delayed, and the show has now been pushed to the later months of 2021.
