Netflix has revealed they’re making Elite Season 4, but will they make Elite Season 5? And if so, when will it be released on the streaming platform?
Elite has proven to be one of Netflix’s most popular TV shows made in the last few years.
To be honest, we really shouldn’t be surprised by its worldwide success.
The show is about teenagers at school. It’s full of drama, mystery and sex.
It’s basically Riverdale in the Spanish language.
The fact that it’s in Spanish probably helps as well because it helps Netflix access the Spanish-speaking market.
That’s actually a far bigger market than the English-speaking one.
When will Elite Season 4 be released on Netflix?
There’s also the fact that it’s actually a really well-made show full of interesting characters and brilliant twists.
It also stars a number of actors from Money Heist (La Casa De Papel in Spanish), which is one of Netflix’s other widely popular Spanish shows.
That helped bring new viewers into the show who were subsequently hooked.
It was announced recently that Netflix is making Elite Season 4, which means that there will be four seasons made in just three years.
That’s a ridiculous turnaround, but they seem to be able to make new seasons of this show very quickly.
However, they do have to make these seasons very quickly anyway to ensure that all the actors are the right age (even though a few of them are bit older than the characters they play).
It’s pretty safe to assume, given the show’s huge popularity, that Netflix will greenlight Elite Season 5.
Is Netflix making Elite Season 5?
We still don’t know yet whether they will make Elite Season 5 officially.
However, if Elite Season 4 does even half as well as Season 3, then it’s pretty much a done deal.
There’s also the fact that Netflix is ramping up the number of ‘foreign language’ films and TV shows.
This means that they would like to ensure they still have their big-hitters such as Elite and Money Heist going.
Think of these two shows as Netflix’s ‘tentpole shows’.
Without these high performing shows, then Netflix won’t be able to make smaller Spanish and other foreign-language TV shows, such as Ragnarok.
Who will star in Elite Season 5?
As for who will star in Elite Season 5, I’m pretty sure the same cast will stay on.
The show’s main cast will still be involved.
We will most likely have Mina el Hammani as Nadia Shanaa, Ester Exposito as Carla Rosón Caleruega, Danna Paola as Lucrecia “Lu” Montesinos Hendrich, Jorge López as Valerio Montesinos Rojas and Álvaro Rico as Leopoldo “Polo” Benavent Villada all returning in Elite Season 5.
It was also announced that Itzan Escamilla will be starring in Season 4 as Samuel García Domínguez along with Miguel Bernardeau as Guzmán Nunier Osuna, Arón Piper as Ander Muñoz, Omar Ayuso as Omar Shanaa, Claudia Salas as Rebeka “Rebe” de Bormujo Ávalos and Georgina Amorós as Cayetana Grajera Pando.
Therefore, most of these actors should be back for Season 5 should Netflix give it the all-clear.
