Awesome News for Fans of 'Élite': Season 5 Is Already On Its Way

Season 4 of Élite literally just hit Netflix, and already I'm in need of more episodes because let's be honest, this show about students at a fancy prep school in Spain is way juicier than you'd expect. (Truly the perfect mix of Riverdale meets Gossip Girl, don't you think?) Needless to say, I'm knee-deep into season 4's heart-gripping mystery. But now that new episodes are on Netflix, you might be wondering exactly when season 5 is expected to make its debut.

Thankfully, we have the scoop on what you can expect for Élite season 5, which, FWIW, is already confirmed. Onward!

First things first: Is season 5 officially a go??

For those waiting on the edge of your seats, let me tell you one word: Yes! Élite is not only expected to make a grand return for its fifth season, but it was renewed before season 4 even aired. Back in February 2021, the cast took to the show's official social media accounts for the announcement with a surprise:

That's right—season 5 is already in production! What does this even mean? Well, it'll probably be a while before we know much more about season 5, so it means it's a good time to rewatch the whole show rn.

AMAZING! Is there a season 5 trailer out yet?

Good Q! Unfortunately the show hasn't released any trailers for season 5. Maybe that's because we need to get through season 4 first? IDK, it's just a guess. But hopefully we'll get something soon!

Okay, cool. Now who from the Élite cast can we expect to return for season 5?

We can't exactly confirm anything, because we don't necessarily live in the Élite writers room, but we do know some things about the cast. For one thing? Two new actors are joining the show: Argentinian actress Valentina Zenere and Brazilian actor André Lamoglia. Obviously they're pretty hot, just like the rest of the Élite cast, so they'll fit right in:

As far as original Élite cast members, we potentially could see some of the original cast from season 4 back on our screens, but nothing is 100 percent confirmed just yet: Itzan Escamilla (Samuel), Miguel Bernardeau (Guzmán), Arón Piper (Ander), Omar Shana (Omar) and Claudia Salas (Rebeca).

Now, if you remember from season 4, the aforementioned names were all retaking their final year at Las Encinas so it's possible they could exit once graduation comes.

Makes sense. But what do we know about season 5's plot?

Um, I hate to tell you this, but not much. After all, Élite just loves to switch up characters on its fans every season, so honestly it's pretty hard to pin down what to expect. BUT here's what we do know: It will be a new school year, with more thrills, romance, and maybe a squashed friendship or two. Sounds pretty good TBH!
