We’ve waited nearly a year (actually 51 weeks, but who’s counting) for the return of Netflix’s hit series Dear White People. Thankfully, our wait is almost up! Netflix has announced that the instant classic show will return for its second season on the streaming service this May. And this time, they’re bringing with them a whole host of issues.
In a short teaser that Netflix released on Monday, the series reveals exactly what on the minds of the students at the fictional Winchester University. Series star Logan Browning reprises her role as campus firebrand Sam, but the whole crew is back and talking about all the issues that happen to be on their minds like cultural appropriation, gender and social norms, sexuality and oppression. But though those sound so very serious, the show handles it with its usual satirical, tongue-in-cheek approach. Not to mention, there are new faces on the quad, including guest stars Lena Waithe, Todrick Hall and Kid Fury. Also coming back is music supervisor Morgan Rhodes, who curated one of the best soundtracks of 2017 for the shows for first season, and musician Kris Bowers, who provided some of the series’ original compositions.
We don’t know where you guys will be on May 4th, but we’ll be at home binging Dear White People‘s second season when it drops on Netflix. Check out the teaser trailer for the second season below.
