Without a doubt one of the biggest successes for Netflix in terms of original production, Elite was once again a winning bet for the platform in its second season.
Netflix’s third Spanish original premiered its new episodes on September 6, registering results that were more than positive both in and outside Spain.
Surprisingly, Elite had its best debut in the US, country which leads Parrot Analytics’ ranking for the series’ demand.
In this market, the new season was demanded 14% more per capita than in Spain, which ranked second on the list.
The podium is completed by Italy, with France and Brazil rounding out the Top 5.
And while the demand came mostly from Latin America and Europe, the series grew notably in Northern Africa, with countries like Morocco and Tunisia making the cut.
Elite season two also managed to surpass the first season, an accomplishment that’s pretty major, given the first episodes’ notable results.
In its original prmiere in October od 2018, the series was watched by 20 million people in its first four weeks and became the most-binged series interationally during that month, according to TV Time.
It also made repeated appearences on TV Time’s rankings of most-binged Spanish-language series between January and March, and in July, it became the third most-binged Spanish series in the world.
And its second season was even better, registering 6.4 times more demand in its debut day in the US and 6.1 times more in Spain.
The success didn’t end there, as in the following five days, the second season was demanded 12.5 times more than the first in the US and 3.85 times more in Spain.
With these results, it’s no surprise that Netflix already renewed it for a third season, which will begin production this year.
Elite is produced by Zeta Audiovisual for Netflix, written by Carlos Montero (El tiempo entre costuras, Física o Química) and Darío Madrona (Génesis, La chica de ayer, Los Protegidos).
The second season stars Miguel Bernadeau (Guzmán), Danna Paola (Lu), Itzán Escamilla (Samuel), Jaime Lorente (Nano), Miguel Herran (Christian), Aron Piper (Ander), Omar Ayuso (Omar), Ester Exposito (Carla), Mina El Hammani (Nadia), Álvaro Rico (Polo).
