Netflix’s hottest and most popular Spanish thriller, Elite, is hands down the best international hit among fans. Fans of the dark teen drama have been waiting for some pretty big questions to be answered since season four premiered on Netflix in June 2021. Created by Carlos Montero and Darío Madrona, the Spanish thriller teen drama follows the lives of students studying at Las Encinas, an elite secondary school in Spain.
Netflix announced Elite Season 5 far ahead of the fourth season’s premiere. Netflix has also revealed that Elite has been renewed for a sixth season. Elite Short Stories, a holiday-themed spinoff with three episodes, was also released in December.
Here’s everything you should know about Season 5 of Elite:
When will Elite Season 5 release?
Elite Season 5 is yet to get a confirmed release date. Given that Elite Season 5 began filming in late February 2021, it’s safe to predict that we’ll get a new season sooner rather than later in 2022. However, one thing for sure is that it isn’t releasing in February, at least.
Plot of Elite Season 5: What will happen in Season 5 of Elite? Will Carla return in Season 5?
Elite Season 4 was the first season without the show’s lead characters such as Carla, Lucrecia, and Nadia. The entire season revolved around who almost killed Ari, the new student, and the final shot of Season 4 ended with Armando’s corpse weighted down in the lake. Guzman is now on the run for Armando’s murder, so it is a question for Season 5.
This means Samuel has an opportunity to work on his relationship with Ari. As of now, it looks like Guzman, Ander and other senior students have officially left the show for good. Season 4 of Elite didn’t exactly leave many loose threads to follow up on. Elsewhere, four new students have enrolled in Las Encinas this summer. Season 5 will continue the pattern of the show’s taking up a new mystery for a season.

Ander Puig will be the show’s first trans actor, and while we don’t know if they’ll be portraying a trans character, we’re glad to see Élite and Netflix’s commitment to increased LGBTQ+ inclusivity both on and off-screen.
