Today, Netflix released the official Elite Season 5 trailer. The new season will arrive on the streaming service on April 8, 2022. You can watch the trailer below!
Netflix describes Elite Season 5 as follows: “This season is about breaking free. No more judgment, no more rules. Will you dare? Elite season 5 begins on April 8, only on Netflix.”
In season 4, a new school year begins at Las Encinas, and with it comes a new director (Diego Martín, Velvet Collection, Familia): one of the most powerful businessmen in Europe, ready to bring the Las Encinas institution, which, according to him, has been running amok in the past few years, back on track.
He brings his three children with him (Carla Díaz, El Príncipe; Martina Cariddi, While at War; Manu Rios, Pepe’s Beach Bar): three teenagers too used to always getting their own way and to have what they want when they want no matter who falls, and who will jeopardize the union and strong friendship of the students who have stayed at the school.
Once again, a battle between the old (the long-standing students) and the new world (the new management and the new classmates, including Pol Granch) takes place. A clash of sides where the value of friendship, love, loyalty, the discovery of one’s own sexuality, the invincible power of the privileged, and the culture of silence will be tested more than ever.
A confrontation that will end up exploding and causing a tragedy, a victim, and a perpetrator whose identity must be unveiled.
Andrés Velencoso (Velvet Collection, Edha) also joined the cast of Season 4, where we also met the most veteran students from Las Encinas: Samuel (Itzan Escamilla), Guzmán (Miguel Bernardeau), Ander (Arón Piper), Omar (Omar Ayuso), Rebeca (Claudia Salas) and Cayetana (Georgina Amorós).
Eduardo Chapero Jackson and Ginesta Guindal were the directors of Season 4, which also featured Jaime Vaca, David Lorenzo, Almudena Ocaña, and Esther Morales as screenwriters. Carlos Montero, Diego Betancor, and Jaime Vaca are the executive producers.
In the show’s first season, when three working-class teens enroll in an exclusive private school in Spain, the clash between them and the wealthy students leads to murder.
During the second season, in the wake of a classmate’s death, a student vanishes, allegiances shift, new friends join the drama, and dark secrets become too difficult to contain.
And in Season 3, when another classmate is killed, a new investigation ensues. The students look toward their future while the consequences of the past haunt them.
Elite is a Netflix Original series and is written by Carlos Montero (The Time in Between and creator of Physical or Chemical) and Darío Madrona (Génesis, La chica de ayer, The Protected). The Netflix show is executive produced by Zeta Audiovisual (Ahora o Nunca, Three Steps Above Heaven, I Want You).
Las Encinas, the best and most exclusive school in Spain where the elite send their children to study, is also where three working class kids have just been admitted after their academy was destroyed by an earthquake and the local council divided up the students between the different schools in the area.
The clash between those who have everything and those who have nothing to lose creates the perfect storm that ultimately ends in a murder. Who is behind the crime?
