Netflix announced today that Elite has been picked up for a fifth season. The renewal is an early one, as Season 4 of the drama has yet to set a premiere date.

Since its debut in 2018 the series has been one of the streaming service's top Spanish originals, with each new season garnering a sizeable audience in International markets.

Elite follows a group of working-class students who are given scholarships to an exclusive private school in Spain. But their arrival clashes with their new wealthy classmates, and the tension leads to a murder, leaving everybody a suspect. The events of Season 3 brought the ongoing story to a conclusion, so it has yet to be seen where things will go heading forward.

Season 4 of Elite should release sometime in 2021, with Season 5 likely following in 2022.
