The series, which debuted in 2018, started with an interesting premise. In Elite, after a problem at the school they attend, three public school students are transferred to Las Encinas, the best and most exclusive school in Spain, where the elite’s children study.
The clash between the less fortunate and those who have everything culminates in murder. Now it remains to know: who is behind the crime?
But while she is already confirmed to return with the fourth season, the story will apply a kind of “reset”, introducing new dramas and characters.
What happened at the end of the 3rd Elite season?
By the time the end of season three took place, she effectively ended a three-season arc for the series. Polo was accidentally killed by Lu and the students came together to cover up and protect her. All this to end all the suffering that happened after Marina’s death.
In this way, several main characters will not return after season 3. Nadia and Lu left to study at Columbia University in New York. Malick was also going to New York to study. Omar was initially going with him but stayed behind to stay with Ander, who was unable to graduate from Las Encinas due to his illness.
Carla also left to study abroad and Yeray probably went somewhere to manage one of her businesses.
Also, Carla left the wineries she managed in the hands of Valerio. But it seems that Valerio will not be in the series in the fourth season.
Then, the characters that will return are Samuel, Guzmán, Ander, and Rebeca, to finish the last year, together with Omar, who is now at Las Encinas.
Cayetana will also be back, despite graduating. It was offered to her by Polo’s parents to go to any school she wanted, but she decided not to. At the end of the season, while the characters are going back to school and going to class, she was seen mopping the floor. This means that she probably did not have enough money to go to college and got a job as a mother.
The new cast members will add a lot to the news stories
Initial rumors made it appear that the series would have a full reboot, but those rumors were debunked when it was found that Las Encinas students would return for the fourth season. However, we have a lot of news. A completely new plot, which will give the audience new mysteries.
Thus, the stars Manu Rios, Carla Díaz, Martina Cariddi, as well as Pol Granch will play new students from Las Encinas. His characters have not yet been revealed. Diego Martin will also be part of the cast as a new teacher.
The new and returning cast members gathered for a promotional photo to introduce the newbies. It looks like the new characters are likely to have a lot of stories revolving around them. This is also the last year of school for returning characters, so their stories may have fewer highlights. Anyway, it is expected that the new story will develop between seasons 4, 5, and 6. So, we will still have enough Elite to enjoy.
According to the platform, filming for the fourth season has been completed. Without a doubt, this is great information. This in the face of a year as challenging as 2020. Having numerous series facing stoppages in recording, with Elite was no different. The attraction paused filming twice during the year but returned in full force in September.
The premiere is still for the first half of 2021. As soon as Netflix confirms a date, we will bring it to you!
