Netflix have renewed their hit comedy series Dear White People for a third season
Dear White People which deals with issues of race, class and sexuality in a college campus setting (the fictional Winchester University), will return for 10 more episodes on the streamer next year.
The show, based on Justin Simien’s indie feature of the same name, follows a group of students of colour as they navigate life at a mostly white Ivy League school. Stars of the series include Logan Browning, Brandon P. Bell, Antoinette Robertson, DeRon Horton, John Patrick Amedori, Ashley Blaine Featherson and Marque Richardson, with Giancarlo Esposito narrating.
The renewal announcement came in the form of a social asset from the show’s narrator Giancarlo Esposito, who was also revealed to be an important member of the Order of X, the university’s secret society, in the second season finale.
“Now that I have your attention,” he said, “…I come with a message of truth. To clarify the false information that’s being disseminated around the world today: ‘Dear White People’ will be returning to Netflix for Season 3. We’ll meet you there.”
“Dear White People,” which was created by Simien based on his 2014 movie of the same name, also comes from executive producer and showrunner Yvette Lee Bowser. Produced by Lionsgate Television, the series stars Logan Browning, DeRon Horton, Brandon P. Bell, Marque Richardson, Antoinette Robertson, Ashley Blaine Featherson and John Patrick Amedori. The second season, entitled “Dear White People Volume 2,” launched on Netflix May 4 and is available to stream now.
