MUMBAI: Netflix’s Elite, one of the most popularly watched shows, is getting an Indian remake as Class. The announcement came at the recently-held Netflix Global Fan Event, TUDUM.
The original series based in Spain follows the story of three working-class teens who are enrolled in an exclusive private school in the country.
They clash with the wealthy students of the lavish school which ultimately leads to a murder. Directed by Carlos Montero and Dario Madrona, Elite is slated to have its Season 6 release in 2023.
