FIRST LOOK: Netflix releases teaser for ‘Dear White People’ season 2

Netflix just announced the release date for Volume 2 of their hit series, Dear White People.

The show will return to the streaming service for a second season on May 4 and we’ve got the first look at what’s to come. Expect to see some of your favorite characters battling out with alt-right trolls throughout the new season that is heavily-inspired by the Trump era.

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 — based on the acclaimed 2014 film by the same name – continues to follow a group of Winchester University 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.

From creator, executive producer, director, writer and co-showrunner Justin Simien, Dear White People stars Logan Browning (Sam), Brandon P. Bell (Troy), Antoinette Robertson (Coco), DeRon Horton (Lionel), John Patrick Amedori (Gabe), Ashley Blaine Featherson (Joelle) and Marque Richardson (Reggie).

Dear White People is produced by Lionsgate for Netflix.

Check out the teaser:

We can’t decide whether or not to take the day off to binge-watch this unmissable series in its entirety or if we should try to control our excitement and space it out over a few days. Either way, we’ve got a whole new reason to put “Netflix and chill” on the agenda next month.
