Several clues can give hope to fans of La Casa de Papel for a season 5.

Especially since the actor Alvaro Morte, who plays The Professor in La Casa de Papel, expressed some reservations on the subject in the columns of Télé-Loisirs: “I don’t know [s’il y aura une saison 5, ndlr]. But I don’t think it is necessary to shoot a thousand seasons. You have to know how to say goodbye to the characters when the series work. I am one of those who prefer to stay on a good impression “. The Spanish actor definitely does not close the door to a season 5. Will the brains of the band of La Casa de Papel be back if a sequel is ordered It will take a little more time to find out.
