Netflix’s’Elite’ is a Spanish thriller play series chronicling the adversities faced by three working-class teens since they get admitted to Las Encinas, a private school that’s otherwise frequented by the wealthier group. Created by Carlos Montero and Dario Madrona, the compelling and gripping drama opens with the casual murder of Marina, a 16-year-old girl, leading to chaos. A new spin on the whodunit-style puzzle, it’s spawned 3 seasons thus far. While the show retains several adolescent show clichés, it also stays intelligent enough to tweak the tried and tested formula with an element of the puzzle.
Fuelled by vitality, stuffed with teenage drama tropes, and endorsed by an ensemble cast of promising young actors and actresses,’ Elite’ has been acclaimed by both critics and overall viewers alike, with a few of the critics referring to this series as a guilty pleasure. While the fans are anticipating the launch of the fourth season for quite a while, we are here in order to get you up to speed about the release date, cast, and the other details of elite period 4.
Elite Season 4 Release Date
‘Elite’ season 3 premiered on Netflix on March 13, 2020. The third season is composed of eight episodes using a normal runtime of 47-56 minutes per incident.

Even though there is no official announcement about the exact release date, we expect elite season 4 to premiere sometime in Summer 2021. Meanwhile, fans will be delighted to know that Netflix has greenlit the series for a fifth season on February 25, 2021, months before the premiere of season 4.
Elite Season 4 Cast: Who’s In It?
We had been expecting to find a complete change of the cast, but that is surely not the situation. Instead, year 4 will likely feature some brand new faces along with the old ones fans are knowledgeable about. Fans will be happy to know that a large part of their favorite characters makes a return in the upcoming season. In many different lead roles, we may expect to see Itzan Escamilla as Samuel, Claudia Salas as Rebeca, Aron Julio as Ander, Omar Ayuso as Omar, Georgina Amoros as Cayetana and Miguel Bernardeau as Guzman.
The celebrities that do not return on the screen comprise Danna Paola (Lucrecia), Alvaro Rico (Polo), Mina El Hammani (Nadia), Ester Exposito (Carla) and Jorge Lopez (Valerio). Back in July 2020, the show announced the addition of four new actors in the cast of season 4 Carla Diaz, Pol Grinch, Manu Rios, Diego Martín, Andrés Velencoso, and Martina Cariddi.
Elite Season 4 Plot: What’s It About?
Season 3 of’Elite’ is up to now the only season of this show that ends without a cliff-hanger, showing the story behind the murder of Polo. We come to understand Lucrecia is the inadvertent murderer of Polo, but she gets away scot-free as the other characters cover for her. The passing of Polo is reasoned for suicide. Lucrecia and Nadia depart for New York to pursue their university education. Carla decides to move to a boarding school and Valerio drops out of college.
The conclusion of the last episode takes a two-month jump and sees a couple of characters clubbed in Las Encinas after the summer break. Even though there’s absolutely no official storyline detail which we know about the upcoming season, it might be speculated that the dynamic of this series could be considerably changed with the introduction of new cast members in addition to the passing of some of the old ones.
