After eight seasons, Netflix’s hit Spanish teen drama Élite is coming to an end. Élite, which followed a select few working-class students entering the world of an elite high school in Spain and their relationships with each other and with wealthier students at their school, has been known for its depiction of queer teens, with fans quickly falling in love with Omar and Ander, two students who formed a relationship in the first three seasons.

While Ander has since left the show, Omar is making his return in the upcoming 7th season of the series and is still gay as ever. Élite has also featured several other queer characters and relationships throughout its five-year run.

Netflix’s “Élite” has just dropped the first teaser for its sixth season. Along with a release date, the trailer confirms new and returning cast members in addition to those who have left the show for good.

Despite being another teen series about pretty, privileged high schoolers, the Spanish drama became a hit with international queer audiences for its inclusion of LGBTQ+ characters (as well as their sex lives). Season 6 is carrying that torch by introducing its first trans character, played by Ander Puig. Other brand new cast members include Carmen Arrufat, Álvaro de Juana, Ana Bokesa, and Álex Pastrana.

The trailer teases that heartthrob Manu Ríos will reprise his role as Patrick, who set loins aflame in Season 4 when he formed a three-way relationship with established gay couple Omar and Ander (“Omander”). André Lamoglia will return as Iván, the son of a famous footballer who falls for Patrick in Season 5. The two are shown making out in the (literally) steamy Season 6 trailer.
