The young adult show is set to debut globally on October 5 offering a first glimpse at character introductions where we see Las Encinas for the first time and plot tease: in the trailer, the thriller element is unveiled for the very first time.
The shows marks the reunion of La Casa de Papel’s María Pedraza, Miguel Herrán & Jaime Lorente who star amongst fresh new faces: Itzan Escamilla (Cable Girls,The Ministry of Time), Miguel Bernardeau (Ola de Crímenes), Arón Piper (15 Years and One Day), Ester Expósito (Estoy Vivo), Mina El Hammani (El Príncipe), Álvaro Rico (Velvet Collection) & Omar Ayuso (debuts with ELITE).

ELITE is Netflix’s second Spanish Original series and is directed by Ramón Salazar (Sunday’s Illness, Three Steps Above Heaven) and Dani de la Orden (El Mejor Verano de mi vida, Party Town), written by Carlos Montero (The Time in Between and creator of Physical or Chemical) and Darío Madrona (Génesis, La chica de ayerand co-creator of the very successful The Protected).
Las Encinas is the best and most exclusive school in Spain, where the elite send their children to study. It’s also where three working class kids have just been admitted after their academy was collapsed and the local council divvied up the students between other schools in the area. They thought that they’d lucked out…but maybe they weren’t so lucky after all.
The clash between those who have everything and those who have nothing to lose creates a perfect storm that ultimately ends in a murder. Who is behind the crime? Is it one of these recent arrivals from a different world? Or is there something deeper hiding beneath the surface?
The show is executive produced by Zeta Audiovisual (Ahora o Nunca, Three Steps Above Heaven, I Want You) with the first season consisting of 8 episodes and entirely shot in 4K.
