Who will be in the Elite season 6 cast?
Many of the original Elite cast members have left the show after season 5. Itzan Escamilla (Samuel), Omar Ayuso (Omar), Claudia Salas (Rebeka) and Georgina Amorós (Cayetana) are all moving on. At the end of season 5, Benjamín attacks Samuel and he cracks his head open. It's since been revealed that Samuel dies.
Netflix confirmed that Itzan is leaving the show by sharing a selection of photos of Samuel on their Instagram account on May 10 with the caption: "how we met him, and how we said goodbye, samuel." Meanwhile, Itzan shared a photo of his uniform on Instagram with a heart and a lock emoji as a caption.
Elsewhere, season 4 and 5 faves Carla Díaz (Ari), Martina Cariddi (Mencía), Manu Rios (Patrick), Pol Granch (Phillipe), Valentina Zenere (Isadora) and André Lamoglia (Iván) will all be back for more Las Encinas antics.
In January 2022, Netflix also announced that six brand new stars would be joining season 6: Carmen Arrufat Blasco (Sara), Ana Bokesa (Rocío), Álvaro de Juana (Dídac), Alex Pastrana (Raul), Ander Puig (Nico) and Nadia Al Saidi (Sonia).

What will happen in Elite season 6?
Based on the Elite season 6 trailer, it looks as though the season that it will pick up in the aftermath of Benjamín going to jail and Samuel dying. With Samu, Omar, Rebe and Caye leaving, we think that Patrick, Mencía, Ari, Isadora, Iván and Phillipe will all take centre stage in season 6 with new drama involving the new characters.
Whether or not Patrick and Iván will successfully date after working through their issues (including Patrick having a thing with Iván's dad) remains to be seen. From the trailer, it looks as though Iván possibly cheats on Patrick.
Elsewhere, it looks as though Ari falls in love with Ander Puig's character Nico and Mencía falls in love with Carmen Arrufat's character Sonia. It also looks as though Isadora seeks justice after being raped in season 5.
On top of that, it seems likely that the students of Las Encincas will be caught up in another huge mystery.
