The students of Las Encinas are back to provoke unrest.
Netflix’s compelling Spanish-language teen soap opera, Elite, starts off its third season in just a matter of few days. A brand new catastrophe is about to seize everyone’s attention: Who is responsible for Polo’s (Alvaro Rico) death?
However, months before Polo’s brutal death at a fancy high school party, he returns to the halls of Las Encinas as public enemy No. 1. This happens after the revelation that he was ultimately the reason behind killing Guzman’s sister, Marina. In the forthcoming 8-episode season, his schoolmates and previous friends are finding it extremely difficult to keep things decent with Polo, who has attached himself to Cayetana (Georgina Amoros), as he tries to crawl his way back to their fondness.
Obviously, there is a lot more to the season than just the Polo issues keeping the boys and girls of halls occupied. They have to think about college, post-high school futures, etc as well as the constant forbidden romances, vengeance, and deception, which threaten to destroy lives that were really only just beginning.
In Economic Times exclusive preview from Season 3, it’s Valentine’s Day and love is surely not in the air as something or the other is definitely upsetting Ander (Aron Piper). Ander has been having relationship issues with his boyfriend, Omar (Omar Ayuso), for reasons we will not engage in here. “Do you know how lucky you are to have someone who’s always there for you?” Guzman (Miguel Bernardeau) tells his friend as Lu (Danna Paola) spy’s nearby. “Don’t blow it, dude.”
Once Ander takes Guzman’s guidance seriously, Lu advances and hunts for intel on whether Guzman is thinking of bringing a date to the Valentine’s Day assemble later that evening. When he informs her he is going as a single person and will not stay if certain people are there, his eyes fall on Polo and Cayetana (aka Bonnie and Clyde), who become conscious that they are being patrolled. Of course, Lu chooses a side in this continuing war against Polo.
“I’m not sure about redeemable, but we definitely want people to understand him. To put themselves in his shoes, “Madrona spoke to Economic Times after the second season. “He is someone who has done something awful and clearly has issues, but he also has a conscience and regrets, and most of the time is just a scared kid.”
“I’ve read tweets saying that maybe in the third season he will become a mega villain, but that is not how we operate. It is much more interesting for us to have all the characters inhabit this gray area where everybody is capable of the best and the worst,” he said. “We do not think of our show in terms of heroes and villains… And everybody is a hero in their own story — the one they tell themselves, anyway.”
