Netflix knows a gem when it has one!

The streaming service has handed out a second season renewal to its buzzy Spanish teen drama, Elite. 

Taking place at an exclusive private school named Las Encinas, it focuses on the school being forever changed after taking in three 16-year-olds from working-class backgrounds following the destruction of the public school they were enrolled in. 

Polo and Samuel - Elite

With the ultimate battle between the wealthy children and the not so well of children ensuing, it results in one person being murdered and the series filling in the blanks to give viewers all the answers throughout the initial eight-episode run. 

Elite Season 1 bowed on Netflix on October 5 and currently holds a 100 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

If you're a fan of Big Little Lies, Gossip Girl, and Revenge, then it may well be your type of TV show. 

It stars Maria Pedraza, Itzan Escamilla, Miguel Guzman Bernardeau, Miguel Herran,  Jaime Lorente, Alvaro Rico,  Arón Piper, The mine Hammani, Ester Expósito, Omar Omar Ayuso, and Danna Paola.

Samuel and Marina - Elite

Netflix has not given any details about what Elite Season 2 will be about, but the good thing is that it will be another eight-episode order. 

The series benefited from clever plotting with the first season, allowing for a breakneck pace.

The renewal was a no-brainer, especially when you consider the buzz the series has been garnering across the internet. 

It was surprising how quick the renewal was announced, but it's great to know there will be more episodes. 

Carla and Polo - Elite

Netflix has committed to making 30 percent of its European catalog in Europe, so that could be attributed to the early renewal.

Netflix Quotes

When I came to this country, I was a young man, but my heart was like yours. I was sad, angry, and scared. When I met Miriam, I didn't know we would fall in love. We started as friends, or she tried to be my friend, but I wasn't interested. We worked together at the World Relief Fund. I was so sad that we couldn't help all of the people. Miriam told stories from the Old Testament. About people who had so many troubles, slaves who wanted to leave the desert. They had no food nor water. But in all of this, God came to their rescue and helped them. I used to make fun of God. I was just like you. I didn't believe there was a God who can do wonders. Then, my life started to improve. The pain in my heart also started to fade away. I started to think about the slaves in the desert. I thought it was their will, their faith in each other, that made God possible in the desert. Maybe we make God. God does not make us. Kwesi, me and Miriam are not asking you to believe in what we believe in. Also, we are not asking you to think about us as your mother and father. We are telling you the important things so that you can follow and choose when you want.

Kwesi's Father

Jonathan: I notice a little bit of dryness on your cheek.
Tom: That’s my Lupus.
Jonathan: Okay, let’s talk about that a little. One thing I know about Lupus is that it’s all about SPF. Like, we have to protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays because sun actually can cause inflammation and flare ups for people with Lupus.
Tom: Right...
[Cut to Jonathan’s confessional]
Jonathan: How you take care of yourself is how the world sees you, and he’s not taking care of himself.
