Is Elite Season 6 coming to Netflix in 2022?
As of July 26, 2022, we can assure readers that Elite Season 6 won’t be available on Netflix in August. Back in October 2021, Netflix renewed the series for a sixth season. Since then, there has been a significant curiosity among viewers because neither Netflix nor the show’s official social media accounts have formally announced the series premiere date.
Thus, it’s anticipated that Elite Season 6 won’t be available on Netflix until 2023. However, if we had to estimate, we’d say the sixth season will debut sometime in around early to mid-2023. But since these are mere speculations, we advise fans to wait a while since the streaming services make these announcements on a schedule and take their time.
Elite Season 6 Filming Status
Filming for the sixth season began in February 2022 and concluded on June 3 of the same year. Now the series is in its post-production stage, which might take some time to perfectly edit the contents for the episodes to make the plotline of the next season much more compelling for the fans to watch.
Additionally, a lot of viewers noticed that Elite’s sixth season would be the series’ final installment, as verified by Netflix France in an Instagram post. After a couple of days, Netflix France changed the description and removed the line stating that Season 6 was the final installment of the show. The fanbase has become hopeful that the show might get a few more seasons, which Netflix will confirm in the near future.
Elite Season 6 Plot
The basic premise of Elite explores concepts and themes associated with teen dramas but also features more progressive issues and other sides to its clichés. These include many diverse sexual themes. Structurally, the series employs a flash-forward plot that involves a mystery element, with each season taking place in two timelines. The upcoming season is expected to pick up from the final episode, Your Side of the World and Mine, of Elite Season 5, which was released on 8 April 2022. The episode is directed by Eduardo Chapero-Jackson and written by Jessica Pires and Jaime Vaca.
In the episode, the viewers got to see that Ari begs Samu to keep the SIM card but assures him that she will accept whatever decision he makes. Iván and Phillipe attempt to describe what transpired in Ibiza back at school. Patrick Iván’s voice memo is played by Ari, but Patrick doesn’t think Iván really meant to utter his name. Cayetana tries to comfort Isadora before returning to Fillipe after being sacked for breaking into Benjamin’s office.
Before going to the police, Samu consents to speak with Benjamin. From the three students’ film, Iván and Phillipe learn that they attempted to halt Isadora’s assault, but both passed out. Later, Phillipe persuades Isadora to call the police and report her assault. Samu slips near the pool and breaks open when Benjamin tries to remove the card from him.
Iván and Cruz reconcile, and Iván intends to profess his love to Patrick, but he discovers that Patrick has already left the restaurant. When Patrick gets home, Benjamin prevents him from dialing 911. He calls for Menca, Rebe, Omar, and Ari instead, all of whom turn against Benjamin. While Iván consoles Patrick, Rebe and Omar watch in terror as the police arrive and take Benjamin into custody.
