Netflix today set a premiere date for Season 7 of Elite. Announced during the streamer's Tudum fan event, the Spanish drama will return on October 20 to follow another epic journey for the new and returning students at Las Encinas.

Since its debut in 2018, the series has been steadily churning out a new season each year - even releasing two seasons in 2022. Now coming up to seven seasons, it ranks as one of Netflix's longest-running scripted dramas.

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. Subsequent seasons have followed new arrivals at the school, and the secrets and crimes that come along with them.
