The tweet read, “Its official., We’ll back for season 4.” We are here to give you all about Elite Season 4 from its release date, cast, and plot.
Elite Season 4: Expected Plot
The show focuses on the lives of teenage kids studying in Las Encinas with their life entangled in drugs, secrets, sex, love, and revenge. In season 1, the plot depicted the rivalry of rich and poor classmates and unfortunately, Marina (Maria Pedraza) dies.
Season 2 revolves around teenage lives and related problems and finding the murderer of Marina. However, the characters found out that the actual murderer is Polo (Alvaro Rico) and his friends start despising him which was saddening for Polo as well. In season 3, life for characters becomes more miserable when Lucrecia (Danna Paola) accidentally kills Polo and a new character was seen named Malick (Leiti Sene).
However, Season 3 ends up as all friends trying to save Lucrecia from the police. Guzman (Miguel Bernareau), Samuel (Itzan Escamilla), Rebeka (Claudia Salas), Ander (Aron Piper), and Omar (Omar Ayuso) are still in that school while everyone moves out for higher studies. So, we could expect season 4 to begin from that point and unraveling some quarrels with new characters as well.
The third season ended on a major cliffhanger with a lot of unanswered questions. The fourth season is expected to answer them. Season 3 is expected to have big changes with a rotating cast.
Season 3 ending was quite intriguing. Here is a video by Nerd Round explaining it:
