Netflix has released the trailer for the seventh season of Elite, and Brazilian star Anitta takes centerstage as fictional elite high school Las Encinas’ new self-defense teacher. The nearly two-minute clip showcases new drama brewing in the already tumultuous lives of the school’s students.

Anitta appears early on in the trailer, training her students. “One, two, if you know how to deal with it, the pain you are about to receive becomes your strength,” she declares sternly.

According to the press release, Élite’s new season — available Friday, Oct. 20 — will tackle mental health and “how most of us neglect it out of fear or ignorance.” The seventh season is created by Carlos Montero and Jaime Vaca, and stars Omar Ayuso, André Lamoglia, Valentina Zenere, Ana Bokesa, Álvaro de Juana, Ander Puig and Anitta, among others.


Anitta’s participation in season seven was announced earlier this year via a collaborative Instagram post between the “Envolver” singer and Élite Netflix. “A girl from Rio you may already know… is about to make an entrance at Las Encinas. @Anitta is joining the #Élite7 cast,” read the post. 

In September, Anitta performed “Used to Be” at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards along with “Funk Rave,” both of which are featured on her summer release, Funk Generation: A Favela Love Story. Now signed to Republic Records, she’s set to release her new song, “Mil Veces,” on Thursday (Oct. 19).
