Elite – Season 4 (June 18)
The Spanish series Elite is one of the bravest and boldest youth series to date that tackles the sensitivities and complexities of gender fluidity. Now on its fourth season, almost half of the cast of Elite‘s original characters have graduated from high school and some are gone for good (we’re not saying who). With this, the Las Encinas high school will be ruled by the returning seniors and the usual notorious gang of Guzman, Samu, Aron, Omar, Rebeca, and Cayetana. The gang might have been halved, but expect that every departure will pair with newcomers — all eye candy, of course.
