What’s it about? After their school collapses, three friends — Samuel (Itzan Escamilla), Christian (Miguel Herran), and Nadia (Mina El Hammani) — find themselves gifted scholarships to the most exclusive private school in Spain. This particular school, Las Encinas, is where the “best of the best” attend, only for the children of the most elite members of society.
Of course, when the trio enroll in the academy, they’re not exactly welcomed with open arms. But as they start forging their own friendships at school, they learn more about the seedy underbelly of its student body.
Christian discovers the poly lifestyle, Nadia’s brother Omar begins selling drugs, and there’s even a murder at the center of it all. It’s hard to tell where things take the darkest turn in the middle of this shadowy web of interactions, but one thing’s for sure: Elite is all about keeping you intrigued.
Where to watch: Elite is currently available to binge on Netflix.
