Netflix Renews ‘Dear White People’ For Season 3
Netflix has renewed comedy-drama ‘Dear White People‘ for a 3rd Season the streaming service announced last night.
Based on Justin Simien’s acclaimed indie film, the show is set against the backdrop of a predominantly white Ivy League university where racial tensions bubble just below the surface, ‘Dear White People’ satirises “post-racial” America and weaves together the universal story of finding one’s own identity and forging a wholly unique path.
Season 1 of the show picked up where the 2014 film left off, and followed a group of Winchester University’s students of colour as they navigate a diverse landscape of social injustice, cultural bias, political correctness (or lack thereof) and sometimes misguided activism in the millennial age. Season 2 continued their journey as it looked at cultural appropriation, sex and gender norms, racist bots, conspiracy theories, Jesus, weed, The Sunken Place and way more.
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 stars Logan Browning, Brandon P. Bell, Antoinette Robertson, DeRon Horton, John Patrick Amedori, Ashley Blaine Featherson and Marque Richardson.
Seasons 1 and 2 of ‘Dear White People‘ can be streamed on Netflix UK and around the world right now. Season 3 is expected to land in 2019.
