What’s next for the Professor? Fans write about his fate on Money Heist season 5.
The Professor, the brain behind all the heists in Netflix’s Spanish crime drama Money Heist, might not survive in the final season. At least that’s what the teasers and posters imply. Even actor Álvaro Morte revealed that his old lonely life before Lisbon is his character’s true destiny. And there are only two ways of that happening, either he dies, or gets arrested.
- Will Professor survive Money Heist season 5?
- Professor hinted season 5 plot
- Even show creator Alex Pina is looking for ways to put The Professor to sleep
- When is season 5 coming?
However, fans speculate the latter scenario is impossible because he is too smart to let that happen. That leaves the first instance: The Professor dies. But who will kill him? Alicia Sierra (Najwa Nimri), or Colonel Tamayo (Fernando Cayo), or the woman he loves — ex-officer Raquel Murillo (Itziar Ituno)? If he dies, who will take over the band? Questions are endless.
Will Professor survive Money Heist season 5?
The last season of this Spanish drama left fans in a major cliff-hanger. Alicia somehow tracked the Professor during the heist. The season ends on a scene where she points the gun towards his head. Will he be able to outsmart Alicia? Or finally die? However, his death has been a long time coming since his first encounter with Raquel, where he got lucky and then he almost got caught in the season 3 finale. As smart as the professor is, it is weird to see that he gets caught so many times and he has to outsmart them to get out of the situation.
But what will happen this time? Will he survive? Some fans believe that there is still hope for him. Since Alicia is heavily pregnant, she might prioritize her baby over a lifetime in prison. Or the Professor might have some sinister twist planned for the expectant mum.
Professor hints season 5 plot
Reddit user jeffman980 pointed out The Professor has told the gang that “You cannot get out of there [The Bank of Spain] alive” if they are to escape the bank. This might be a clear indication that the team might fake their death as part of the final escape plan.
They also used Nairobi’s actual funeral as a test run to escape using coffins. Though that sounds far-fetched, knowing Professor’s love for plans, this potentially could happen.

In the Netflix statement, Alex Pina said,
“We have spent almost one year thinking about how to destroy the band, how to put the Professor on the ropes, how to get the band into situations that are irreversible for many characters.” Now that is what we call an indication of what Professor’s fate would be by the end of the season. Alex also hinted that this last season would see the most blood-shedding and it would be epic. “The war will reach its most extreme and savage level, but it will also be the most epic and exciting season.”
When Money Heist Season 5 will come out
Recently on July 31st Netflix confirmed season 5. However, it was also announced that this will be the last and final season of the series. Money Heist season 5 was originally planned to be released in January 2021. However, since the pandemic lockdown has put a halt on the entertainment business all over the world, we expect a delay of at least six months from the tentative date. Who do you think should lead the band if the professor dies in season 5? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
