Netflix can’t get enough Elite. The streamer announced Thursday that it has renewed the Spanish-language teen drama for Season 6, well ahead of the Season 5 premiere.
In addition, Netflix confirmed three new holiday-themed episodes of the short spin-off Elite: short stories: “Phillipe, Caye, & Felipe” (premiere Wednesday, December 15), “Samuel & Omar” (premiere Monday, December 20), and “Patrick” (premiere Thursday, December 23).
Located in an upper secondary school, Elite follows the relationships between three working-class scholarship students and their wealthy classmates. Season 4, which came out on June 18 and earned a TVLine reader rating “C+”, ended with the departure of two original cast members:
Guzman (played by Miguel Bernardeau) decided to join his friend Ander (Arón Piper) as the two left the city. travel around the world. (This was after Guzman accidentally killed Armando, who attacked Ari, and then, of course, Rebekah and Samuel helped Guzman cover up the crime.)
Season 5’s cast will include Argentine actress Valentina Zenere (cable girls) and Brazilian actor André Lamoglia (juacas). A premiere date has not yet been announced.
