There’s a reason so many Netflix binge-watchers around the world are completely obsessed with Elite. The teen thriller series has all of the best qualities of shows like Gossip Girl and Riverdale with its own flair for mystery and melodrama that we still can’t get enough of going into the fourth and fifth seasons. Your watch list will thank you for adding Elite.

The basis for the series begins at Las Encinas, an elite secondary school in Spain where wealthy privileged students are suddenly rubbing elbows with working-class kids enrolling on scholarships. Elite follows the usual ups and downs of adolescent angst while peppering in some darker and more dramatic twists and representing diverse sexualities.

Elite has been a fan-favorite since premiering on Netflix in 2018 and has also garnered overwhelmingly positive reception from critics. The GLAAD Media Award winner earned a two-season pickup following its third season, a rare show of support from the streaming giant. While it remains to be seen whether those seasons will wrap up the series, there’s no better time to catch up on all the mysteries of Elite ahead of seasons 4 and 5.
