When is Elite Season 6 releasing on Netflix?

In October 2021, Netflix renewed the series for a sixth season. It has been an entire year since then, and the viewers need to wait just a couple of days more. Now, we know that the new season will be released on November 18, 2022, and not in the month of October. Moreover, the filming for the sixth season began in February 2022 and concluded on June 3 of the same year. 

For the first time in Elite history, we’re getting two Elite seasons in a year. The official Twitter handle of the show also confirmed the news by sharing a newly released teaser trailer, quoting, “Is it hot in here? Elite Season 6 premieres November 18.” Take  a look at the post below: 

Elite Season 6 Plot

Season 6 will pick up after the events of Season 5, revealing whether Samuel survives or dies. If the latter occurs, Benjamín may be arrested for the murder of his student. That should have serious consequences for his children, Ari, Mencia, and Patrick, and it’s possible that another new principal will be appointed at Las Encinas.

According to Netflix Tudum, “After Samuel’s death, Las Encinas faces a new school year trying to have a facelift by covering up disasters of the past,” reads the official synopsis. “However, the conflict in its classrooms is systemic: racism, sexism, domestic abuse, or LGTBI-phobia are just a few of the difficult issues that will run through the hallways of the prestigious institution this season. If those who run the system do not actively take action to address these issues, it will have to be the students themselves who do so.”

Elite Season 6 Cast Updates

After season 5, several of the original Elite cast members left the show, including Itzan Escamilla as Samuel, Omar Ayuso as Omar, Claudia Salas as Rebecca, and Georgina Amorós as Cayetana, who are reported to be moving on. In addition to that, Benjamín strikes Samuel and busts his head open at the end of Season 5. 

It’s currently uncertain if Samuel dies or survives. However, Netflix revealed Itzan’s departure on May 10 by posting a series of photographs of Samuel with the description “how we met him, and how we said goodbye, Samuel.” Take a look at the post below:
