Will there be an Elite season 5 on Netflix? Here's everything you need to know about the future of the Spanish show.

Elite season 4 is finally here and Netflix have already announced that there will be a fifth season of the iconic Spanish series.

Each season of Elite has a different, gripping mystery. Elite season 1 was all about who killed Marina, Elite season 2 focused on the disappearance of Samu and Elite season 3 told the story of the murder of Polo. It's unclear exactly what Elite season 4 and Elite season 5 have in store for us but, with multiple, major cast changes, one thing is for sure: more chaos awaits.

When is the Elite season 5 release date?

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)." As it stands there's no official release date for Elite season 5 just yet, however, season 3 came out in March 2020, and season 4 came out on June 18, 2021.

Given that Netflix are releasing a second batch of Elite Short Stories throughout December, season 5 could drop as soon as January 2022.

Who will be in the Elite season 5 cast?

Again there's no official confirmation on who will be in the Elite season 5 cast just yet. Ester Expósito (Carla), Danna Paola (Lu), Álvaro Rico (Polo), Mina El Hammani (Nadia) and Jorge López (Valerio) all left the show at the end of season 3, with their characters finishing school and moving on to new ventures. Although, Mina appears as a guest in season 4.

Elite season 4 sees Itzan Escamilla (Samuel), Miguel Bernardeau (Guzmán), Arón Piper (Ander), Omar Shana (Omar) and Claudia Salas (Rebeka) all retake their final year and Manu Rios (Patrick), Pol Granch (Phillipe), Carla Díaz (Ari) and Martina Cariddi (Mencía) join as new characters.

It looks like almost everyone will be back because the season ends halfway through the school year. However, Arón and Miguel probably won't return because Guzmán and Ander both go off travelling at the end of the season, unless they have to come back to Madrid. It's also unclear if Pol Granch will return as Phillipe or not.

Elsewhere, Netflix have revealed that Argentinian actress Valentina Zenere and Brazilian actor André Lamoglia will join the franchise in season 5 as students called Sofia and Gonzalo respectively. It has since been announced that French actor Adam Nourou will also be joining the cast as a student called Eric.

It's currently unclear if Sofia, Gonzalo and Eric will be in the same school year as the rest of the cast or not. As it stands, Netflix are yet to release character descriptions for them. We shall let you know as soon as we know more.

What will happen in Elite season 5?

With Armando now dead and Mencía no longer in danger, Elite season 5 could focus on a brand new mystery. However, if Armando's dead body is found, all the characters could be questioned by the police and Guzmán and Ander could even be brought back, particularly seeing as Guzmán killed Armando.

Elsewhere, Samuel and Ari could finally start dating now that Guzmán is out of the picture. We also expect there will be a lot more Mencía and Rebeka scenes, and Omar, Cayetana and Patrick could all find new love interests.

Is there an Elite season 5 trailer yet?

There isn't an Elite season 5 trailer at the moment but we shall update you as soon as there is one.
