Elite season 5 premiered on April 8 this year and the fans are already excited to see what the next season has in store for them. Will our underdog leads survive yet another year at Las Encinas? Who will be returning to the show for its next season? Will any new characters be added to the mix?
Elite is a Spanish high school thriller revolving around the struggles of a bunch of middle-class students who get a chance to study at the most elite school in Spain. However, a seemingly exciting school life turns into a complicated mess when they find themselves surrounded by power politics, rich kids and their nuances, feelings and infatuations, and yes, murders too. The first season of the show premiered in 2018 on Netflix and the series has since become a global OTT phenomenon. While fans have just devoured the fifth season, the thriller is far from over.
Season 5 of the series, as expected, was full of drama and thrill as the investigation of Armando's murder and the events of the New Year party are revisited. A lot of confession, confusion, conflicting thoughts and trauma goes into the murder investigation. We are also introduced to two new students- Ivan Carvalho and Isadora Artinan who further complicate things at Las Encinas. The season features complicated relationships, hook-ups, patch-ups, break-ups and a lot more that keeps the drama going. Armando's murder case is far from being solved, however.
