Attention Elitists! School will be back in session!

When? Keep reading to find out. 

And we are back with the snobbish Spanish elites of Las Encinas as they continue marinating in various spicy mysteries, scandalous romantic rendevous, and a scourge of raw teenage tantrums for a seventh season. Amidst bleak and unfortunate circumstances that have gripped the Hollywood entertainment industry and with some of our most-awaited series being held at hiatus point, a release date for Elite Season 7 is a welcome benediction.

Premiering on Netflix in 2018, the series was met with critical acclaim. At the time, Variety‘s Caroline Framke hailed the series as “tantalizing and whipsmart,” writing: “’Élite’ does indeed include countless teen show clichés, but it also relishes the opportunity to dig a bit deeper and twist them into more interesting shapes. It interrogates the very tropes it indulges by finding new gears in old plot engines. And with the addition of a smart flashback structure keeping its central murder mystery afloat, Darío Madrona and Carlos Montero’s drama quickly proves addictive enough that it’s hard to stop watching before the end of its eight-episode conclusion.” Looks like greenlighting the series for progressive seasons has not been in vain for the streamer giant.

So now, the main query lingers: When will Elite Season 7 finally arrive on Netflix?

We have gathered all important updates related to the release date, new entries to the cast, and what Season 7 of the teen dramedy will feature. So continue reading!

Elite Season 7 Plot: What To Expect?

Elite Season 7

Like every other Season since its inception in 2018, the hit Spanish series has honey-trapped us into its riveting mystery plotlines, twists, and turns that we never see coming and keep us at the edge of our seats throughout the entire seasons. Season 7 will not prove to be any different, especially because of the massive cliffhanger Season 6 finale left us with, so buckle up.

For those unversed, Elite revolves around the lives of the students who are a part of one of the most exclusive private schools in Spain, Las Encinas. Sticking true to the adage, ‘Money does not buy happiness’, the students’ lives, despite the abundance of wealth and power, abound murder, lies, and betrayal discovered by the arrival of new students.

Elite Season 7 is expected to let loose the focus on Ari, Menica, and Patrick since they have left Madrid. Season 7’s main premise from the inception of its first episode is likely to focus on the drive-by shooting incident, where it was not revealed who survived and who didn’t. Also, the story will continue from the aftermath of Ivan’s hit-and-run case, along with a premeditated focus on Isadora and Didac’s new relationship.

Another common theme Season 7 might pick up on is mental health, partly due to the events that unfolded in Season 6 and mostly due to the current global spotlight on the cause of mental health for teenagers and dealing with the consequences of neglecting it.

From what we could decipher from Balić, Abrosimov, and Bokesa — in between all the [Tudum] bleeps — is that a lot of new people come in this season [like Abrosimov and Balić]. But as for who they hook up with? “That’s [Tudum].” Balić does suggest that “my character should go to therapy.” And Abrosimov’s, too. “We could go together,” she says. And Bokesa reminds us that, “We also go to class. Sometimes.” Easy to forget on Élite.
