It only took 12 days after the first season of Élite dropped online for Netflix to renew the Spanish drama for a second season. Following the lives of three working class friends who move to a posh private school after their own place of study is destroyed by an earthquake, we see the pals get absorbed into the scandalous lives of Spain’s most elite teenagers, with everything the students know being thrown in the air when one of their classmates is murdered.
Deliciously addictive, Élite is a perfect for a post-night out, hungover binge; but if you’ve already devoured the eight episodes, don’t worry as Netflix is bringing back the show for a second run. Here’s what we know so far.
Will there be a second season of Élite on Netflix?

Do we know when it’ll drop?
We’ve just been told it’ll be back in 2019, sadly no date more specific than that.
Any trailers for Élite season two yet?
Not yet, but we’ll keep you updated as soon as they’re released.
What about the cast, who’s set to return? Any new characters?
In a statement Netflix have said: “Returning and new characters are to be confirmed,” so we don’t have any official confirmation of who’s going to be back, but it looks like we can expect some new additions to the cast.
We can expect most of the core characters to return, so it’s likely we’ll see Nano (Jaime Lorente), Polo (Álvaro Rico), Samuel (Itzan Escamilla), Nadia (Mina El Hammani), Guzmán (Miguel Bernardeau), Omar (Omar Ayuso), Carla (Ester Expósito), Lucrecia (Danna Paolo) and Christian (Miguel Herrán) again.
It’s uncertain whether Maria Pedraza will return as Marina, as the character was murdered in season one; however if the show continues to have flashbacks, we could see her in these.
What’s going to happen in season two of Élite?
No details have been revealed yet, but we can expect it to pick up where season one left off. In the finale we saw Nano (Jaime Lorente) being charged for Marina’s murder, whilst the real killer was Polo (Álvaro Rico). Season two could follow Nano’s brother Samuel (Itzan Escamilla) as he attempts to find out who the real killer of Marina (María Pedraza) is.
Meanwhile we also know that Christian (Miguel Herrán) is aware of who the real murderer is, so the second series will also need to explore whether he comes clean.
We can also expect to see more of the relationship between Nadia (Mina El Hammani) and Guzmán (Miguel Bernardeau). Speaking to Spanish magazine Fashion Hola, El Hammani said: “Nadia suddenly finds in Guzmán the desire, the sexual attraction, and everything she thought she did not have to do, she feels it. “They are unanswered questions that Nadia needs to answer, find her own answer.”
