Contains spoilers for the “Elite” Season 4 finale
Five seasons is a long time for a show to be around on Netflix, and seeing as how most of the main cast from Season 1 have left or will soon move on, the next season could very well be the last. Season 4 also mixed things up significantly by having Guzmán (Miguel Bernardeau) kill Armando (Andrés Velencoso), who had previously attacked Ari. Guzmán then dumped the body with some help from old friends before leaving town. It’s possible Season 5 could pick up this plot thread and check in with what Guzmán is up to these days.
Outside of that, “Elite” tends to follow drastically different plot threads from one season to the next. There will likely be another crime at the center of the overarching plot that requires solving. No matter what happens, Season 5 of “Elite” will inevitably offer a scandalous time.
