Elite Season 7 Speculated Release Date
The exact launch date has yet to be determined, as the series was recently renewed for another season by Netflix. However, it has been speculated that the forthcoming season would most likely have a release window suggested to be around mid-2023. On the other hand, this is merely speculation, and the network will reveal all of this information in a few months. Until then, the fans should be patient and follow all the social media platforms for the series to be updated with the latest information.
We also suggest that in the meantime, catch up with the prior season as all the prior seasons of Elite, along with the upcoming season, will be available exclusively on Netflix, with all previous seasons also accessible on the streaming platform with a range of membership options. You may stream movies and TV shows at no additional cost with any of their services, depending on the package you choose.
Elite Season 7 Plot
The new season is expected to continue the tale from the fifth season, which is yet to be released. Hence, we can’t speculate the plotlines on how the sixth season will conclude this early on, but it is expected to carry on the basic premise with the seventh season, which follows, “When three low-income students are offered scholarships to attend an exclusive high school after their original school collapses, their more affluent classmates react with distrust and hostility. The friction that ensues as a result of their enrollment at the school results in a murder, which irrevocably alters all of their lives. “
Elite Season 7 Cast Updates
As of October 26, 2022, the new cast members of the series who will feature in the upcoming season are reported to be Mirela Balic, Fernando Lindez, Nadia Al Saidi, Gleb Abrosimov, Alejandro Albarracín, Iván Mendes, and Maribel Verdú.

Elite Season 7 Episodes
Netflix is yet to confirm how many episodes there will be, but Elite Season 7 is expected to include 8 episodes with an average runtime of 41 to 59 minutes, just like the prior seasons. In addition to this, if we take most of the Netflix series into consideration with a bit of speculation, then the new season of Elite will have the same premiere time as other shows on the streaming service, which is 12:00 a.m. (PT) or 3:00 a.m. (ET).

Elite Season 6: What to expect from the upcoming season?
In October 2021, Netflix renewed the series for a sixth season, which will be released on 18 November 2022. Season 6 of the show 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.”
On the other hand, no official promo or teaser for Elite Season 7 has been released, as the show’s production has not begun yet. As a result, there isn’t a teaser or trailer that fans may watch and speculate about potential main plotlines for the series’ anticipated upcoming installment.
