Will there be an Elite season 4?
Yes. In May 2020, Netflix took to Twitter to officially confirm that season 4 is coming with a video with the cast that are still in the show. Not only that but in February 2021, Netflix tweeted: "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)."
In other words, we've got plenty more Elite to look forward to in the future.

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 brand new cast members. 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 new cast similar to British teen drama Skins.
On May 19, Netflix tweeted: "Go behind the scenes of Elite Season 3 as Ester, Danna, Alvaro, Mina, and Jorge say goodbye" alongside an edit of Ester Expósito (Carla), Danna Paola (Lu), Álvaro Rico (Polo), Mina El Hammani (Nadia) and Jorge López (Valerio) all tearing up as they spend their final days on set.
However, Mina El Hammani (Nadia) still appears in season 4 just not as a main cast member.
