Will there be an Elite season 4 on Netflix? Here's everything you need to know.

Elite season 3 may have only just come out but fans are already begging Netflix to release season 4 of the teen thriller.

As soon as the hit Spanish series came out in 2018, people all around the world were instantly gripped by the murder of Marina and the drama that followed it. Since then, the show has given us many more scandals and season 3 appears to draw things neatly to a close as we find out who killed Polo.

Will there be an Elite season 4?

As it stands, Netflix haven't officially renewed Elite for a fourth season. However, fans can relax a little bit because, in January, popular Spanish news site Bluper reported that Elite season 4 and 5 are already in production at Netflix. In other words, it looks like we've got plenty more Elite to look forward to in the future.

We imagine that Netflix will confirm the Elite season 4 renewal within the next few weeks.

When is the Elite season 4 release date?

Again there's no official news regarding an Elite season 4 release date just yet. Season 1 was released on October 5 in 2018, season 2 came out on September 6 in 2019 and season 3 dropped on March 13 in 2020. Given how varied all of the release dates have been so far, there's no knowing for sure when season 4 will come out.

Nonetheless, seeing as it is reportedly already in production, our bet is that season 4 will be released in Autumn this year or Spring next year with eight episodes again just like the previous seasons and the fifth season could follow soon after.

That being said, due to the Coronavirus outbreak halting production on many series, there is a chance that filming on Elite season 4 could be delayed severely. With that in mind, it's unclear exactly when season 4 would be released.

Who will be in the Elite season 4 cast?

Prior to Elite season 3 coming out, the original actors and actresses revealed that season 4 will feature a brand new cast. In a video about season 3, Georgina Amorós (Cayetana) explained: "It's a season where the cycle is completed. Another one starts". Alvaró Rico (Polo) also confirmed: "It's the definitive ending to the evolution of the characters."

The news came after 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 similar to British teen drama Skins. As it stands, there is no information on who will appear in the new class of Elite and if it will still be set in Las Encinas but we'll update you as soon as we know.

For now though, 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).

Not to mention, season 3 newcomers Yeray (Sergio Momo) and Malick (Leïti Sène).

What will happen in Elite season 4?

Seeing as Elite season 4 will feature a brand new cast there's no knowing what the plot will be just yet. The current cast and crew are yet to say anything. If it's still set at Las Encinas though, we imagine that there will be a new set of students, new class struggles and a lot more scandal.

Given that season 3 ends with Guzmán, Samuel, Rebeca, Ander and Omar all still at Las Encinas, we imagine that the show may change schools for season 4, unless there will be cameos from the initial cast. We'll let you know as soon as theories, spoilers and news materialise.

Is there an Elite season 4 trailer yet?

Currently, there is no trailer for the fourth season of Elite but we shall update you as soon as there is.
