The oversexed students of Las Encinas are back for more moneyed, murderous mayhem.

With its heady mix of money, sex and murder, Netflix’s Élite proved to be one of 2018’s biggest TV surprises – so you’ll be pleased to know the wait for round two is almost over.

The moody first trailer for the Spanish high school drama’s second season dropped on Tuesday (6 August), similtaneously confirming that it’s set to premiere in just a month’s time, on 6 September.

The clip sees the show’s cast of impossibly hot young things drenched in blood-red light as they prepare to deal with the deadly fallout of season one, and offers fresh glimpses of your fave couple Ander (Arón Piper) and Omar (Omar Shana), aka ‘Omander’, as well as ice-cold rich b**ches Lucrecia (Danna Paola) and Carla (Ester Expósito).

Élite drew praise upon its debut last year for its progressive portrayal of topics like sexual fluidity, open relationships, class, faith and living with HIV: issues which were coupled with a level of glossy, ridiculous rich kid drama not seen since the golden days of Gossip Girl.

The fact it stars some of Spain’s hottest young actors certainly didn’t hurt either – more on that here.

Élite season two arrives on Netflix on 6 September. Check out the first teaser trailer below:
