The show's creator, Alex Pina, has opened up about why they decided to call it a day on the show, explaining: "We've made over 2,000 minutes of fiction with two heists. I think we've exhausted some of the characters' emotional arcs and their arcs of transformation. We've told a lot and I think it's a good time to stop. It's a very climatic season and I think it's always better to leave sooner rather than later."

The final series sees the gang shut in the Bank of Spain for over 100 hours after rescuing Lisbon, but losing one of their own in the process.

The synopsis reads: "The Professor has been captured by Sierra and, for the first time, doesn’t have an escape plan. Just when it seems like nothing else could go wrong, an enemy comes on the scene that is much more powerful than any they’ve faced: the army. The end of the greatest heist in history is approaching, and what began as a robbery will turn into a war."
