Show creator Carlos Montero spoke of the reasons behind the series coming to a close at a press conference earlier this year.

He said: “We are shooting the eighth season, which will be the last season of Elite.

“We ended on a high note. Jaime [Vaca, co-showrunner for season seven], Netflix and I thought it was time to end it.

“I say this with great regret because it’s been several incredible years in which I’ve met wonderful actors, we’ve worked with all the directors we wanted to work with and we’ve had the luxury of having Maribel these last two seasons.”
