'Elite' season 4 adds Manu Rios and singer Pol Granch to cast

It's all change at Las Encinas this year.

2020-07-21

Netflix's Elite has won plaudits for its sexually-progressive storylines and glossy mix of murder and intrigue since it debuted in 2018, and after season three wrapped a fair few lose ends and saw a few characters graduate high school the cast is underdoing a mini-overhaul for season four. 

The Spanish language high school drama has unveiled the fresh batch of faces who'll be stalking the drama-filled corridors of Las Encinas next season following the exits of Ester Expósito (Carla), Danna Paola (Lu), Mina El Hammani (Nadia) and Jorge López (Valerio).

 

Joining Elite season four will be Manu Rios, Carla Díaz, Martina Cariddi and Pol Granch - and while details of their respective characters are being kept under wraps for now, it's fair to say that on this particular show, they're unlikely to be the shy and retiring types.

With a fifth season already confirmed, you'll have plenty of time to get acquainted with the new arrivals, but here's a catch-up.

Manu Rios is a 21-year-old former child star and YouTuber who boasts more than one million subscribers on the video sharing platform, where he shares personal vlogs and musical covers.

He also boats more than five million followers on Instagram. We can't think why.

The 22-year-old went on to win the competition, and released his self-titled EP last year.
