Netflix has greenlit Spanish-language drama “Elite” for season 3, with an unconfirmed number of new episodes for 2020. Debuting on October 5, 2018, the series focuses on three working class friends — Samuel (Itzan Escamilla), Nadia (Mina El Hammani) and Christian (Miguel Herran) — who are given scholarships to Las Encinas, the most exclusive private school in Spain. As the school year progresses, their lives intertwine in a clash of lifestyles, resentments, envy, and sexual attraction. Through a series of flash-forward scenes of police interrogations, the audience is shown stories of the character’s relationships that somehow lead to a murder.
The news of the pick-up comes just one month after Netflix began streaming the second season of “Elite.” The number of new episodes ordered have not been confirmed.
