Netflix officially announced today that Elite has been renewed for a third season. Coming a month after the release of its sophomore run, the good news makes official what many had already known, given that the Spanish-language series has actually already finished filming Season 3.

The pickup was a no-brainer for the streaming service considering the drama's continued popularity. After a buzzworthy debut in 2018 that had both fans and critics lauding its juicy storylines and compelling cast, the show avoided a sophomore slump in Season 2 and served up an even-better-received second run.

Elite follows three working-class students who are given scholarships to the exclusive Las Encinas private school in Spain. But their arrival clashes with their new wealthy classmates, and the tension leads to a murder, leaving everybody a suspect.

Season 3 of Elite will premiere in 2020.
