It’s been over a month since the release of Elite season 5 on Netflix, and people are still reeling over everything that happened in the fifth season of the teen series. The fifth season ended on a major cliffhanger, so fans are anxious to see how everything will turn out in the new season. Unfortunately, fans won’t get to see the new season as early as June because Elite season 6 will not be making its way to the streamer this month.
We aren’t surprised that Elite season 6 isn’t coming in June because the cast and crew are still hard at work filming the sixth season. But the good news is that it looks like production is expected to wrap up very soon. How soon? As soon as this month.
If you’ve been following our Elite season 6 release updates posts, you’d know that we’ve been saying that the sixth season could possibly wrap in June. We were basing the sixth season’s production schedule on seasons 4 and 5, where production only lasted four months. Production for season 6 started sometime in February, so four months later would be June. However, this was our wrap date prediction. Nothing was confirmed.
Now there’s a rumor swirling around that Elite season 6 is set to wrap production in early June. According to an Elite fan page on Instagram, the cast and crew are in their last week of production. It looks like there’s some truth to this rumor because Valentina Zenere, who plays Isadora in Elite, posted a photo to her Instagram story of herself in her dressing room with a text saying, “Last week, en mi segunda casa, el camarín.” The English translation is “Last week, in my second home, the dressing room.” It’s unclear what the exact day was when Valentina posted the photo, but it was somewhere between May 30 to June 1.
So if this rumor is true, when can we expect Elite season 6 to arrive on Netflix? We shared our release date predictions below.
Elite season 6 release updates
If principal photography wraps in June, the show will immediately enter post-production right afterward. Post-production typically takes up to six months. So if the sixth season spends the full six months in post-production, we could be looking at a December 2022 release. But this would mean that two seasons of Elite came out in 2022. We’ve only seen one season of Elite released each year, and we doubt Netflix will switch things up for season 6. So Netflix would most likely hold the sixth season until next year and release a bunch of new Elite: Short Stories at the end of 2022. For now, our best release date prediction for Elite season 6 is early 2023.
