Netflix renews 'Elite' for season 5 even before season 4 premiers.
We might have already solved the mystery behind Marina's death in season 3, but fans should be glad to know that the 'Elite' wouldn't be resting in the shadows anytime soon.
A fourth season is already underway, and fans can expect more in the future.
'Elite' is a Spanish thriller teen drama created by Carlos Montero and Darío Madrona for Netflix.
It takes place in a fictional elite secondary school called Las Encinas and follows the drama between the super-rich and the three working-class students, who managed to get into the exclusive institution via scholarship. The drama brought by the clash in lifestyles, resentments, envy, and sexual attraction is even intensified after the death of Marina in season 1 and the disappearance of Samuel in season 2.
Let us find out what to expect from the show in the future. Here's everything we know about 'Elite' season 5.
The fourth season of 'Elite' has not even landed on Netflix yet, but Netflix has already renewed the show for season 5.
"Elite fans, get ready for more because the show has been renewed for a fifth season! (and before you ask... no, Season 4 has not premiered yet)," Netflix announced.

'Elite' is among the hottest and most popular titles on Netflix right now, and it's unsurprising if the streamer is banking on its popularity.
The first season had been streamed by over 20 million accounts on its first month on Netflix. The show continues to draw more viewers with each season.
There is no exact release date yet, but we likely have to wait until 2022 for season 5 since season 4 is coming out this year. 'Elite' season 4 will arrive on Netflix on 18 June 2021.
There is still no official cast list announced for 'Elite' season 5. It's worth noting that several characters said goodbye to the series after season 3 ended.
Carla (Ester Expósito), Polo (Álvaro Rico), Nadia (Mina El Hammani), Lucrecia (Danna Paola), Valerio (Jorge López), Yeray (Sergio Momo) and Leïti Sène (Malick) are no longer coming back for season 4.
Only Cayetana (Georgina Amorós), Rebeca (Claudia Salas), Guzmán (Miguel Bernadeu), Samuel (Itzan Escamilla), Ander (Arón Piper) and Omar (Omar Ayuso) are confirmed to proceed to the next season.
With the old characters leaving, Netflix introduced new characters who will make season 4 even more intense.
They are Patrick (Manu Ríos), Ari (Carla Díaz), Mencía (Martina Cariddi), and Phillippe (Pol Granch) .
We still don't know if Netflix will retain these characters until season 5, but that seems likely for now. We will update this space once the official casting details get announced.
The official synopsis for 'Elite' Season 5 is still not available as of this writing. That's understandable because season 4 has not even premiered on Netflix yet.
The show's main mystery regarding Marina's death has been resolved in Season 3. In season 4, new students are introduced, bringing all-new drama that will potentially be carried over into season 5.
We will wait for season 4 to drop so we could start analyzing how it will set up the events for season 5.
We will continue to update this article for further developments, so feel free to bookmark this article for future reference.
Expect the official trailer for season 5 to drop sometime next year. In the meantime, here is the season 4 official trailer for you to enjoy.
