In Elite season 7, we first find Omar far away from Las Encinas at university, but he's "unable to move on" following Samuel's death, which prompts him to seek out therapy – and return to his old school, where he hopes to confront the ghosts from his past.


But he isn’t the only one having a tough time, with the rest of the students also "silently battling their own hells".

Alongside a number of familiar faces, there are several newcomers in Elite season 7 – recently confirmed to be the penultimate chapter in the drama, which is now set to conclude after season 8.
