Deadline reports that Elite Season 4 was confirmed by the series in an official Twitter announcement on May 22, with the cast teasing the new dramatic and juicy chapter in a video message. “You better be prepared, because it’s intense,” Arón Piper says in the clip, per the screen’s subtitles. “I wish I could see your faces when you watch it, because you’re going to flip out” Georgina Amorós teases, adding: “There are many new things going on [that] you could never think of.”
As noted by Entertainment Weekly, the exciting news comes just a few days after Elite announced the departure of several cast members. In a video, the Netflix series said goodbye to five cast members as they bid a final farewell to Las Encinas: Mina El Hammani, Danna Paola, Ester Expósito, Álvaro Rico, and Jorge López. The minute-and-a-half clip shows several behind the scenes moments, showcasing the cast’s strong bond and how much each actor enjoyed playing their roles.
Elite first premiered in October 2018, and follows the ever-present drama amid the halls of Las Encinas prep school. With Season 3 ending on a pretty big cliffhanger — not to mention so many unanswered questions — it’s safe to say that the anticipation for the show’s fourth installment is high. While it’s hard to say what direction the show will go in, we can count on learning more about our favorite characters as we watch them navigate life — and death. “Growing up means a lot of things,” Elite co-creator Darío Madrona previously told Entertainment Tonight following the release of the series' third season. “You can become wiser, learn how to better deal with pain and sorrow, mature as a person. But you'll also have to make painful choices, start to worry about your future, even become more aware of your own mortality.”
