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 'Elite' wouldn't be resting in the shadows anytime soon.
A fourth season was recently released, 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.
Even before the fourth season of 'Elite' has landed on Netflix, the streaming giant 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 came out this year. 'Elite' season 4 arrived on Netflix on 18 June 2021.
We are expecting series regulars Samuel (Itzan Escamilla), Rebeka (Claudia Salas), Omar (Ayuso), Ari (Carla Díaz), Patrick (Manu Rios), Cayetana (Georgina Amorós), Diego Martín as Benjamín and Mencía (Martina Cariddi) to return for the fifth season.
Several original 'Elite' cast members said goodbye at the end of season 3. Only Cayetana (Georgina Amorós), Rebeca (Claudia Salas), Guzmán (Miguel Bernadeu), Samuel (Itzan Escamilla), Ander (Arón Piper) and Omar (Omar Ayuso) proceed to season 4.
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) .
Recently, Netflix announced that Argentinian actress Valentina Zenere and Brazilian actor André Lamoglia will be joining the cast list for season 5.

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 be carried over into season 5. In season 4, we witnessed a pivotal moment after Guzmán (Miguel Bernardeau) kill Armando (Andrés Velencoso), who had previously attacked Ari. Guzmán and his friends discarded Armando's body, before leaving town. We are likely going to find out in season 5 what happens to Guzmán after committing the crime. We do not know a lot about Armando, except that he was a student of Las Encinas two decades ago with immense wealth and power. His death will undoubtedly cause trouble to Guzman, while Rebe and Samu will be forced to keep their mouths shut.
Just like the previous seasons, we are anticipating plenty of drama and steamy scenes in 'Elite' season 5.
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.
