Spanish drama Élite is back for a sixth season, with a teaser trailer confirming the upcoming release date and fate of the characters.

Netflix made the announcement with a racy trailer on 26 September.

The clip confirmed which characters would be returning to Las Encinas for another season.

Manu Ríos (Patrick) André Lamoglia (Iván), Carla Díaz (Ari), Valentina Zenere (Isadora), Martina Cariddi (Mencía) and Adam Nourou (Bilal) all appeared in the fast-paced video.

There are also a handful of new faces joining the ensemble drama, including Ander Puig, Carmen Arrufat, Álvaro de Juana, Ana Bokesa, and Álex Pastrana.

Fans have had to say goodbye to a number of original and early-season characters, such as Samuel, played by Itzan Escamilla.

The season six official synopsis stated: “After Samuel’s death, Las Encinas faces a new school year trying to have a facelift by covering up disasters of the past.”

“However, the conflict in its classrooms is systemic: racism, sexism, domestic abuse or LGTBI-phobia are just a few of the difficult issues that will run through the hallways of the prestigious institution this season.”

“If those who run the system do not actively take action to address these issues, it will have to be the students themselves who do so.”

Élite is known for its diverse portrayals of queer relationships throughout the seasons.

Puig, who was confirmed to have joined the cast in January, is the first trans actor to appear on the show.

At the end of the trailer, the streaming giant confirmed that Élite will return on 18 November.
