The Netflix teen, drama, and thriller show “Elite” has officially renewed for season 5, before the season 4 premiere, which is likely to arrive in spring 2021. The series has also added Argentinan actress Valentina Zenere (Soy Luna) and Brazilian actor André Lamoglia (Juacas) to its cast for season 5.
Earlier, season 4 filming was completed in December 2020 with the cast finding it very challenging due to COVID restrictions on set.

The Spanish original was officially renewed by Netflix for season 4 around two months after the season 3 premiere. The cast, including Miguel Bernardeau and Claudia Salas, announced the pickup via a video from their homes in quarantine in May.
Elite season 4 has added four new faces to the cast - Manu Rios, Carla Díaz, Martina Cariddi & PolGranch.
“Elite,” which is Netflix’s second original series from Spain, is set at Las Encinas, the most exclusive high school in the country, where the Elite sends their children to study. In there, three working-class teens have just been admitted after an earthquake destroyed their school. The clash between those who have everything and those who have nothing to lose creates a perfect storm that ends in a murder. The class and culture gulf sparks an escalating series of confrontations, culminating in murder.
The series also stars Georgina Amoros, Itzan Escamilla, and Omar Ayuso, whose character Omar Shanaa finally became a Las Encinas student in season 3.
“Elite” is executive produced by Zeta Audiovisual (“Three Steps Above Heaven,” “I Want You”), and was created by Spanish writers Carlos Montero (“The Time in Between,” “Physical or Chemical”) and Darío Madrona (“La chica de Ayer,” “The Protected”), who are part of the same generation of the writer as Bambu Producciones’ Ramón Campos and “Money Heist’s” Alex Pina and Esther Martínez Lobato.
