Netflix's Elite announces season three air date – and we don't have long to wait!

Not long to wait…

Time to head back to Las Encinas… Netflix’s Elite is on its way back!

The hit Spanish-language series took to its Instagram page to reveal that it will be returning to screens with its third season a lot sooner than we thought it would.

Here’s what you need to know about the show’s newest season.

When will Elite season three air on Netflix?

Following its global success with its first two drama-packed seasons, the third instalment of the gripping and glamourous Spanish thriller will be back on screens on 13th March 2020.

Considering that we last caught up with the Las Encinas crew back in September, this comes as a surprise to many fans who are usually accustomed to waiting around a year to see the next instalment of their favourite programmes.

What is Netflix’s Elite about?

The school-based hit follows Samuel (Itzan Escamilla), Nadia (Mina El Hammani), and Christian (Miguel Herrán) as they are thrust into the world of an elite private school following the destruction of their humble state institution.

Among a web of murder, mystery and glamourous parties, the series subtly addresses more serious issues like class differences, homosexuality and injustice.

Netflix

Although Netflix has not yet released a trailer for the upcoming series, we expect more drama, mystery and murder, especially as the duplicitous Polo was finally revealed as Marina’s killer at the end of season two.

With no current evidence against the student in the absence of the murder weapon, we expect some scheming amongst his peers in order to see some sort of conviction.

Which cast members will be returning for Elite season three?

Netflix has confirmed the return of many of the popular cast members, including the three original protagonists Samuel, Nadia and Christian (who was absent for much of the previous series).

Other fan favourites such as Guzmán (Miguel Bernardeau), Ander (Arón Piper), Omar (Omar Ayuso), Carla (Ester Expósito), Nano (Jaime Lorente Lopez) and Lu (Danna Paola) will be returning, as well as conflicted antagonist Polo (Álvaro Rico).

The streaming service has also confirmed two new additions to the cast, relative newcomers Sergio Momo (as Yeray) and Leïti Sène (as Malick).

However, there has been not yet been any word on what part these new characters will play in the twisted antics of their predecessors.

Only three weeks to go until we find out!

Why Anne With an E Season 4 Needs to Happen

On November 25th, 2019, fans of CBC and Netflix’s Anne With an E were shocked to find out that their show was canceled. Just hours earlier Canadian fans got to enjoy the show’s amazing season 3 finale. While Anne Nation in the rest of the world still had to wait over a month to see the newest season.

However, fans of Anne With an E didn’t give up. On the contrary, actually. They got up and got ready to fight for their show. And so, the #RenewAnneWithanE movement was born.

Now, many billboards, a couple of hundreds of thousand signatures and an increasing number of high-profile celebrity tweets later, Anne fans are still fighting. Still tweeting, still trending. And still making a buzz. With no signs of stopping until their show gets renewed.

Which is why I figured I tag in once again and share my top five reasons why Anne With an E season 4 needs to happen!

So, without further ado, here are a few of the, let’s face it, many reasons why I think that Anne With an E is such a wonderful, wholesome show. And why, therefore, it deserves to be renewed!

Family bonds

The whole premise of Anne With an E is about found family. An orphan girl gets adopted by a brother and sister living on Prince Edward Island where she finally finds a real family both in Matthew and Marilla and her friends in Avonlea. And the show couldn’t be better at really highlighting all the ups and downs of finding your tribe.

From Anne’s uncertainty about if Marilla and Matthew will keep her. And her trying to fit in at school. To Anne finally becoming a real Cuthbert, settling in her life at Green Gables, finding love, daring to learn about her birth family and pursuing her dreams of going away to college. All three seasons of Anne With an E were a true rollercoaster.

However, the notion of family and finding the people that you can truly call yours never left the series. It was weaved throughout it. And done so beautifully, heartwarmingly and truthfully that you just can do nothing but marvel at the way Anne With an E tells its characters’ stories. As well as the way it portrays family. Because, at the end of the day, finding your family, no matter how early or late in your life it happens, is what truly matters.

Strong friendships

Whether it be the friendship between Anne and Diana, Marilla and Rachel or Gilbert and Bash, Anne With an E is also great at showing real friendships. Ones that are full of support and empathy. While also not shying away from showing the occasional disagreement between friends. That most of the time ends up making the friendships stronger than before.

Luckily, nowadays seeing a not so polished version of different types of relationships is becoming an increasingly more common occurrence. However, there still is something special in the way Anne With an E portrays the pure bond that can exist between friends. The bond that can withstand time and transcend generational or cultural differences. And that is something you don’t see on TV that often even now.

The Shirbert of it all

Ah, what would a TV show be without a little romance? And Anne With an E really had a love story for the ages in Anne and Gilbert’s relationship.

It grew over time and managed to survive despite some big misunderstandings and bad timing. And even though Gilbert and Anne’s love story only really, truly began at the end of season 3, it was a long time coming which only made it better.

Ever since season 1, Anne and Gilbert’s relationship seemed like it could evolve into one of those epic romances. And it finally did in season 3.

Which is why it was even more frustrating that the show got canceled. After all, all three seasons were building up to that epic Shirbert moment in the season 3 finale. And now we want to see more of that sweet Shirbert love.

Timely issues in a period packaging

Anne With an E also didn’t shy away from exploring many serious and universal issues that are topical even today.

From racism and feminism to bullying, homophobia, sexual assault and many more, the show dared to show many different stories that other period pieces probably wouldn’t even touch on. Which ultimately not only gave a modern twist to the tale of Anne of Green Gables but also made the show so relatable and loved.

Representation nowadays is everything on TV. And Anne With an E did it right!

They not only did it in a way that felt truthful to the series. But also, in a way that didn’t discriminate any viewer or feel forced. And that is really important for a wholesome series like Anne With an E that’s meant for all ages and audiences.

Activism isn’t gauche

And last but definitely least, Anne With an E showed how important activism is. And that you can always make a difference no matter how small or insignificant your contribution seems to you or those around you. You just have to be brave enough to do it.

From hopping a freight train to save Miss Stacy. To publishing the article about women’s rights in light of Josie’s assault and subsequently fighting the powers that be about freedom of speech. To trying to rescue Ka’kwet from the government’s misguided actions. Anne With an E is littered with big and small moments of bravery and true activism. Which makes me want to be better and do more. And I know that I’m not alone in this.

So, if a single show and 27 episodes can do that, what’s to say what it could accomplish it there was more of it?

Airdate: The Last Thing He Wanted

New Netflix film The Last Thing He Wanted drops on Friday.

Anne Hathaway stars as a journalist in a story of the Iran–Contra affair political scandal that occurred during the second term of the Reagan Administration.

The fourth film from director / writer Dee Rees (Pariah, Bessie, Mudbound) this also stars Willem Dafoe, Ben Affleck, Rosie Perez, Edi Gathegi, Mel Rodriguez, Onata Aprile and Toby Jones.

Marco Villalobos co-wrote the script, and Cassian Elwes produced with Rees.

Adapted from the Joan Didion novel of the same title, The Last Thing He Wanted is set against the nebulous milieu of the Iran-Contra scandal. Veteran D.C. journalist Elena McMahon (Academy Award® winner Anne Hathaway) abandons the 1984 campaign trail out of a misguided sense of duty to her father, Dick McMahon (Oscar® nominee Willem Dafoe).

Guilted into running a dangerous fool’s errand on his behalf, Elena leverages the moment to pursue her own investigation but instead gets tipped into the confounding center of the very intrigue she’s trying to expose. Answers turn into questions and wrong turns lead to dead ends in this stylish political thriller as Elena becomes increasingly lost on a map of someone else’s making and the possibility of return — to home and to herself — slowly narrows.

Friday February 21 on Netflix.

After Hours: A Village-Based British Comedy Starring Ardal O’Hanlon

After Hours

If you’re looking for a pleasant British comedy with great scenery, you need look no further than After Hours. Set in the fictional Lincolnshire village of Shankly, it’s a coming-of-age comedy with a warmth many modern comedies lack.

What’s After Hours About?

Ardal O’Hanlon appears as Willow’s father in After Hours

After Hours is a six-part comedy that focuses on a young man named Willow, his family, and his circle of friends. After his friends leave for university and his girlfriend dumps him, Willow is feeling pretty hopeless.

To make matters worse, his father (played by Ardal O’Hanlon) has recently lost his milk route because of the new local supermarket, and his mother is on both of their cases to find employment. Unfortunately, their small village has little to offer in the way of employment.

The only thing that really comforts Willow is a late night internet radio programme called After Hours. The show is made by a slightly older (but still quite young) man and woman who are everything he’s not – cool, confident, and well-liked. A chance meeting leads the two hosts, Ollie and Lauren, to take Willow under their wing as a sort of intern/assistant for the radio show. 

It doesn’t solve all his problems, but it certainly makes life more interesting. While Willow deals with his issues, we also see bits of his home life – including his father’s rather entertaining midlife crisis and the family’s failed boycott of the local supermarket.

Overall, it’s quirky, occasionally clever, and very easy to watch. It’s good, mostly clean fun – nothing too illicit or adult happens.

 

Who’s in the Cast of After Hours?

Willow and Lauren working on After Hours

Central character Willow Hannigan is played by relative unknown James Tarpey, and his parents, Anna and Peter are played by Susan Cookson (Emmerdale, Cold Feet) and Ardal O’Hanlon (Father Ted, Death in Paradise). 

Radio host Ollie is played by Rob Kendrick (The Syndicate), and his partner Lauren is played by Jaime Winstone (Love, Rosie). Georgina Campbell (The Pale Horse, Broadchurch) plays Willow’s girlfriend at the beginning of the series, Jasmine.

 

John Thomson in After Hours

One of the show’s more amusing performances comes from John Thomson best known as Pete Gifford on the long-running dramedy Cold Feet. He acts as a mid-life crisis buddy for Ardal O’Hanlon’s character, scheming along with him as they attempt to sort out their lives.

 

After Hours Filming Locations

After Hours features numerous scenes along the canal in Lymm

While the series is set in the fictional location of Shankly, Lincolnshire, it was actually filmed in Cheshire, not far from Warrington (where supermarket sitcom Trollied was set). The village is called Lymm, and it’s home to roughly 12,000 people.

After Hours is one of those shows worth watching for the scenery alone, given the pretty canalside village setting. The internet radio show at the center of the series is broadcast from a canal boat, and many other scenes take place in the local pub or along the canal and pretty stone streets. 

If the show leaves you curious and wanting more of the local scenery, you can click HERE to take a Google StreetView walk around the village. It should drop you right in front of their local, The Bull’s Head (a real pub). I’ll warn you in advance that it does work better on a desktop or laptop computer, as the mobile app controls can be a bit wonky.

Where Can I Watch After Hours?

Georgina Campbell plays Jasmine in After Hours

As of February 2020, After Hours is available HERE on Prime Video in the US. In the UK, it was originally aired on Sky One. Members in the UK and Ireland can watch it now via Now TV

After Hours does not appear to be available on Amazon in Canada, and we’re not aware of a DVD release for those outside the above viewing areas.

 

Will There Be a Season 2 of After Hours?

Given that Series 1 originally aired in 2015 and there’s been no word about a second series, it seems highly unlikely that a second set of episodes will be produced. Stranger things have certainly happened, but it doesn’t look good.

On My Block Season 3: Premiere Date Announced!

Netflix’s On My Block will return to the air this March. 

The popular comedy will return for its third season Wednesday, March 11, 2020. 

omb3

On My Block Season 3 includes eight episodes, and the streamer has offered up the following logline for the new installments:

They thought life was about to return to what passes for normal in Freeridge, but the stakes just got even higher.

While it doesn’t offer up much in the way of plot details, it does tease that things are about to get more complicated for the beloved characters at the wheel of the story. 

The cast includes Diego Tinoco as Cesar Diaz, Sierra Capri as Monse Finnie, Jason Genao as Ruby Martinez, Brett Gray as Jamal Turner, Jessica Marie Garcia as Jasmine, and Julio Macias as Oscar.

omb2

Co-created by Lauren Iungerich (Awkward) and Eddie Gonzalez & Jeremy Haft (All Eyez On Me), On My Block is a coming of age comedy about four bright and street-savvy friends navigating their way through the triumph, pain and the newness of high-school set in the rough inner city.

The series was a hit out of the gate for Netflix, being hailed as the most-binged show on the service in 2018, allowing the show to achieve great success. 

Ahead of Season 3, the cast negotiated new deals, with Capri, Genao, Gray, and Tinoco receiving raises on the back of the show’s success, according to THR

The salaries of the core stars will continue to rise for a potential fourth and fifth season should Netflix order it.

Netflix has been cutthroat with cancellations of late, so there’s really no way of knowing whether the show will continue beyond the third season. 

The series has been a hit with critics, averaging a 97% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Elite Season 3 Teaser Reveals Premiere Date

Elite Season 3 is coming very soon. 

Netflix announced Tuesday that the highly anticipated third chapter of the teen drama will launch globally Friday, March 13. 

Carla at the Ball - Elite

The streamer also dropped a teaser confirming the returning cast members Itzan Escamilla as Samuel García Domínguez, Miguel Bernardeau as Guzmán Nunier Osuna, Álvaro Rico as Polo Benavent, Arón Piper as Ander Muñoz, Mina El Hammani as Nadia Shanaa, Omar Ayuso as Omar Shanaa, Ester Expósito as Carla Rosón Caleruega, Danna Paola as Lucrecia “Lu” Montesinos Hendrich, Jorge López as Valerio Montesinos, Claudia Salas as Rebeka “Rebe” de Bormujo Ávalos, and Georgina Amorós as Cayetana Grajera Pando. 

Two new actors include Sergio Momo as Yeray Leïti Sène as Malick for the third season cast. Miguel Herrán is not expected back as Christian Varela Expósito. The same goes for Jaime Lorente, who played Fernando “Nano” García Domínguez. 

Nadia, Christian, and Samuel on Elite

Both Christian and Nano’s storylines naturally concluded during Elite Season 2, and there’s a good chance all of the current cast members will not be back for seasons 4 and 5. 

According to an unconfirmed report, Elite Season 4 will be a soft reboot that will focus on a brand new cast and mystery. It’s unclear whether that mystery will be set at the same school or if we’ll be moving to a new location. 

It makes sense to refresh the cast every few years, especially with a show set in high school. There are only so many mysteries you can make believable with the same bunch of characters. 

Skins UK famously swapped out the cast every two seasons, and given the success of Elite so far, it might be a good way to keep fans enthralled for longer. 

Carla and Polo - Elite

Elite Season 3 is a treat for fans of the series given that Netflix typically waits around 12 months between seasons of shows. However, this season is coming months after Season 2. 

Watch the Season 3 trailer below and hit the comments with your thoughts on the rumor about a whole new cast.
