The hit Spanish drama series is back with a Season 6. 

Yes, you read that correctly. Elite Season 6 is back on track, and the series is ready to explore more of the series’ good characters and story arcs in the upcoming season.

Much to the delight of fans, the series has not been canceled by Netflix, as it has been observed that the streaming platform does not continue with some series for more than 4-5 seasons, despite high viewership and critical acclaim. 

Season 5 was recently released, but the fans’ overwhelming response has made this possible to get another season. To say the least, the show appears to be safe from the so-called Netflix curse of getting canceled, according to fans.
