The Netflix original web series “Elite” is all set to release its season 5 tomorrow which is on April 8, 2022. As evident from the previous 4 episodes that have been released, the storyline is based on the difficulties, challenges, and overall experience faced by the 3 teens- Samuel, Nadia, and Christian from a working-class background, who get admission into an elite school through a scholarship. The story is set in the fictional elite secondary school, namely Las Encinas, the school where all the elite class people send their children to study. The storyline is something that doesn’t bore someone easily and forces the typical binge-watch.
It was created by Carlos Montero and Dario Madrona and the first episode was premiered on October 5, 2018. Since then, the series has received a lot of appreciation and curiosity from the audience. The filming has been done in the Madrid region.
All the already released 4 seasons deal with the mystery of murder committed by the wealthy student, attempts to hide it, and setting then and there. The writing, portrayal, and acting of the show have been highly appreciated and people since the release of the 4th season have been demanding for the next season. Therefore, Netflix renewed the series for the fourth and fifth seasons in May 2020 and February 2021 and scheduled the fifth season to be released on April 8, 2022.
Cast of Elite Season 5
The main cast consists of Maria Pedraza playing the role of Marina Nuier, Itzan Escamilla in the role of Samuel Garcia, and Miguel Harren in the role of Christian Varela. These are the 3 main characters whose life in the wealthy elite class school has been depicted. The role of Fernando “Nano” Gracia who was accused of Marina’s murder has been played by Jamie Lorente. Lucrecia “Lu” Montesinos who accidentally stabs Polo in the graduation party has been played by Danna Paola and Leopoldo “Polo” Benavent by Alvaro Rico.
Glimpse from previous seasons
Season 4 turns altogether different from the previous 3 seasons in which a new principal has arrived in the school and Ari has been found close to death. The new director at the school urges to bring revolution in the school and bring it back on track which he considers not to be.
On January 17, 2019, Netflix announced that the first season has been streamed in 20 million accounts and that too within the first month of its release. It has also become the second most-followed Spanish TV show on TV Time’s most-followed shows and holds a rank of 25 globally. The series has also won the GLAAD media awards 2019 in the best drama series category and has also been nominated for several others.
With all kinds of mystery surrounding the television, it is being expected by the audience that season 5 is going to be a masterpiece and people are looking forward to it. Season 5 is expected to continue the foreplay that has been created in season 4. In October 2021, the series is even renewed for its sixth season.
