Rejoice, for Elite has officially been renewed for season 2. Netflix confirmed the very buzzy, very deadly teen soap will return for round two less than two weeks after the Spanish-language series debuted at the beginning of October. Elite’s eight-episode second season will arrive in 2019.
With the new year now in full swing, Netflix has also confirmed the original teen cast — save for the ill-fated Marina (María Pedraza) — is set to return for season 2 and they'll be joined by some new faces. Young actors Jorge Lopez, Georgina Amorós, and Claudia Salas will all be joining the deadly proceedings for round two as well.

Of course fans are wondering how Elite will pick up after solving its biggest mystery — who killed Marina?! — and leaving hero Samuel (Itzan Escamilla) pondering all of his life choices on that dock in the season 1 finale.
But, those are obvious conundrums. With all the machinations and antics of Elite, there are some much weirder and gnarlier plot threads to return to in the Las Encinas world next year. To know what we’re talking about, keep reading for all the biggest questions Elite season 2 needs to answer.
