Netflix has renewed the hit Spanish-language teen drama Élite for a fifth season.
The streamer confirmed that filming on season five is about to get underway in Spain and that there will be two additions to the main cast, with Argentinean actress Valentina Zenere (Soy Luna, Cable Girls) and the Brazilian actor André Lamoglia (Juacas) joining as series regulars.
Starring Miguel Bernardeau, Itzan Escamilla, Arón Piper, Omar Ayuso, Claudia Salas and Georgina Amorós, Élite is set at Las Encinas, an exclusive private school, home to the children of Spain’s elite, which is forced to take in three working-class kids after their academy is destroyed by an earthquake. The first three seasons deal with the murder of a student at the school and its aftermath.
Netflix previously announced that season four of the soapy drama will drop later this year and welcome new castmembers Andrés Velencoso, Manu Rios, Carla Díaz, Martina Cariddi, Pol Granch and Diego Martín.
The streamer has said the first season of Elite was viewed by more than 20 million member accounts worldwide.
Élite is produced by Spain’s Zeta Audiovisual and created and written by Carlos Montero and Darío Madrona.
