This is the beginning of the end for La Casa de Papel. The first part of the fifth and final season of the series is available from this Friday on Netflix – the very last episodes will be delivered on December 3.
The end of the robbery is therefore near and we will soon know what will happen to Tokyo and its acolytes. “In my opinion, they will end badly. Anti-heroes rarely have a happy ending, ”predicts Florent, who responded to the call for testimonies from 20 minutes.

“I can’t wait for it to end, it’s become rubbish,” Dante Reader engages. I liked the first break and the second, at the beginning, it was nice, but it went too far, ”he says. Paradoxically, he did not let go of the series and even claims to be “anxious to see how it ends. »And if that was the tour-de-force of La Casa de Papel ?
