Netflix renews Dear White People for a second season
Netflix has confirmed Dear White People will return for a second season.
The show’s provocative title initially caused controversy, but Dear White People‘s forward-thinking content – tackling the various forms of racial discrimination black students experience at a predominantly white college – earned the series critical success, as well as a hard-to-obtain 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Season two will land on the streaming service in 2018 for another 10 episodes and Logan Browning (Samantha), Brandon P. Bell (Troy) Antoinette Robertson (Coco), DeRon Horton (Lionel), John Patrick Amedori (Gabe), Ashley Blaine Featherson (Joelle) and Marque Richardson (Reggie) are all expected to return for the next chapter.
“It’s a system in place. When this country was founded, black people were slaves, so we’ve chiseled away at the foundation but it’s still there. We’re still carving out an area for us. I thought it was an interesting perspective for anyone willing to hear it from a black point of view. What is the difference? Why is white racism not real?”
Dear White People season one is available to watch on Netflix.
