Earlier this year (Jan 20), Bluper reported that Elite season 4 and 5 are already in production at Netflix. However, the exciting news was followed up by claims that there would be a complete cast overhaul. Spanish news site Fuera de Series reported that Elite season 3 would be the final season with the main cast and season 4 will have a whole new cast like Skins.

And now the cast have confirmed that it's true. In a video about Elite season 3, Cayetana actress Georgina Amorós teases: "It's a season where the cycle is completed. Another one starts. Get your tissues ready because you will need them. It's a very complete season". Alvaró Rico (Polo) adds: "It's the definitive ending to the evolution of the characters."

In other words, it's time to say goodbye to Samu (Itzan Escamilla), Guzmán (Miguel Bernardeau), Lu (Danna Paola), Polo (Álvaro Rico), Carla (Ester Expósito), Nadia (Mina El Hammani), Ander (Arón Piper), Omar (Omar Shana), Nano (Jaime Lorente), Rebeca (Claudia Salas), Valerio (Jorge López) and Cayetana (Georgina Amorós).

It's currently unclear if Elite seasons 4 and 5 will still be set at Las Encinas or at a completely different school.

BRB - pretending that this news doesn't exist until season 4 drops.
