The fourth season of Netflix's Elite was announced by the cast and crew on May 22, 2020, when they revealed via Twitter that they had received their scripts. This reveal was against rumours that there would be a completely new cast for season four. It was released worldwide on June 18, 2021.


Season 4 picks up with a new school year at Las Encinas, as well as a new director (Diego Martin): one of the most powerful businessmen in Europe, ready to bring the Las Encinas institution, which, according to him, has been running amok in the past few years, back on track. He brings his three children with him (Carla Díaz, Martina Cariddi, Manu Rios): three teenagers too used to always get their own way, and to have what they want when they want, no matter who falls, and who will jeopardize the union and strong friendship of the students who have stayed at the school.[2]
