On Februrary 25, 2021, Valentina Zenere and André Lamoglia were introduced as new main characters for the season. On March 25, 2021, Adam Nourou's casting as another main character was revealed on the Elite instagram page.

- According to some sources, Ester Expósito was rumoured to reprise the role of Carla for this season. However, during an interview, the actress denied the rumours and firmly stated that she will not return for the series.
- Valentina Zenere had previously participated in another Netflix series, Cable Girls, being cast as a regular for its fifth and final season.
- Just like her former co-star Jorge López, Zenere also gained worldwide recognition in the Disney Channel series Soy Luna, in which she played Ámbar Smith, the show's main antagonist. Had Jorge López remained in the series, this would've been their second collaboration together in a series after Soy Luna.
- This is André Lamoglia's first Netflix series, having mostly featured in Disney series/TV specials such as Juacas, BIA and Bia: Un mundo al revés.
- Valentina Zenere is also friends with André Lamoglia, since she appeared in the second season of Juacas reprising the role of Ámbar Smith. Her appearance took place in the middle of the third season of Soy Luna, still retaining her dark clothes and personality.
