Dear White People Vol. 2 teaser and launch date released
Netflix‘s critically-acclaimed comedy Dear White People returns this spring to break down cultural appropriation, sex and gender norms, fake news, The Sunken Place, salty grits, and much more when Dear White People Vol. 2 launches Friday, May 4th on Netflix. Check out the teaser trailer for the upcoming second season as well as the new key art in the gallery below!
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 — which picks up where the acclaimed 2014 film by the same name left off – follows a group of Winchester University’s 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 and executive producer Justin Simien, Dear White People premiered globally on Netflix April 28, 2017. Yvette Lee Bowser will also return as showrunner, with Stephanie Allain and Julia Lebedev again executive-producing. The series stars Logan Browning, Brandon P. Bell, Antoinette Robertson, DeRon Horton, John Patrick Amedori, Ashley Blaine Featherson and Marque Richardson.
Dear White People is produced by Lionsgate for Netflix.
