Elite Renewed For a 2nd Season By Netflix

The news was first revealed over a month ago by The Spanish Newspaper El Confidencial and now Netflix have confirmed the news; Elite Season 2 is officially a go!

Season 1 of the teen mystery drama centered on a group of students at Las Encinas, the most exclusive high school in Spain, whose students belong to swankily wealthy families, apart from three working class kids who have just been admitted after their tin pot school collapses. The class and culture gulf sparks an escalating series of confrontations, culminating in murder.

Since its premiere on Netflix the show has garnered positive reviews from across the world and quickly built up a fandom. There's no word yet from Netflix on which characters will be returning, which characters will be introduced or when exactly the 2nd season will be dropping but it will be at some point next year.

Whilst the streaming giant has International license to a number of Spanish Television Series including La Casa De Papel, which was another break-out hit, Elite is the second Spanish original series from Netflix with Bambu Producciones Cable Girls being the first. That launched back in April of last year and was renewed for a 4th season. Bambú is also producing for the streamer original TV drama “Alta Mar” and documentary series “El crímen de Alcasser.”

Spanish Television has proven to be extremely popular for Netflix, who are aiming to produce 9-12 shows a year from the Country. To meet the demand, Netflix launched its first European Production Hub in Tres Cantos, near Madrid, the Spanish capital city where it aims to open a fully staffed bureau.
