Season three arrived on Netflix on 13th March 2020, and in May the cast revealed that they’d just received the scripts for season four – telling fans “they look so good” and “I wish I could see your faces when you watch it”.
When is Elite season 4 going to be released?
If the show follows the release pattern of seasons two and three, we’d expect season four to debut around March 2021.
However, with Spain still heavily impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, it remains to be seen exactly when filming can begin on the new season.
In the season four announcement video, Arón Piper says: “We’re looking forward to getting back to work,” while Claudia Salas adds: “We are looking forward to seeing you all soon.”
