Congrats to the cast of Netflix’s “Dear White People.” The series has been renewed for a second season and we are so excited! According to DEADLINE, the new season will feature 10-episodes and production will start later on this year.
Set against the backdrop of a predominantly white Ivy League university where racial tensions bubble just below the surface, “Dear White People” is a send-up of the now post “post-racial” America that weaves together a universal story of finding one’s own identity and forging a wholly unique path. The satirical series — which picks up where the acclaimed 2014 film by the same name left off – follows a group of Winchester University’s students of color as they navigate a diverse landscape of social injustice, cultural bias, political correctness (or lack thereof) and activism in the millennial age. Through an absurdist lens, “Dear White People” utilizes biting irony, self-deprecation and sometimes brutal honesty to hold up a mirror to the issues plaguing society today, all the while leading with laughter.
The series was created, written and executive produced by Justin Simien and stars Logan Browning, Brandon P. Bell, Ashley Blaine Featherson, Marque Richardson, Antoinette Robertson, DeRon Horton and John Patrick Amedori.
