Elite: Season 1 (2018)




Critic Consensus: Elite is highly digestible, technically strong trash TV for anyone with a guilty pleasure palate.


Tv Season Info

Las Encinas, the best and most exclusive school in Spain where the elite send their children to study, is also where three working class kids have just been admitted after their academy was destroyed by an earthquake and the local council divided up the students between the different schools in the area. The clash between those who have everything and those who have nothing to lose creates the perfect storm that ultimately ends in a murder. Who is behind the crime?


Critic Reviews for Elite: Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

Elite, full of nuance in its discussions about class, privilege, and sexuality, doesn't have to be relegated to yet another guilty pleasure. Just, please: Watch it with subtitles.

Unlike most high school dramas, the series tempers its over-the-top plot twists with real human emotion by focusing on the kids and how growing up too fast can have devastating consequences. Elite may be the best high school drama on TV.

Sex, drugs, and murder in racy, compelling Spanish import.

If the British version of Skins left a gaping hole in your life, or if you've ever wondered what Mean Girls would be like if someone had actually killed Regina George, look no further: Elite is the hedonistic, bloody romp you've been waiting for.

This tantalizing and whipsmart entry to the teen show pantheon proves itself worthy of the spotlight.

With Euro-cool style and compelling characters, Elite is trashy, diverting fun.
