netflix renews hit comedy ‘dear white people’ for season 2

July 3, 2017

Get ready for another semester at Winchester University! On Friday, Netflix––which has been more cancellation-prone this year than it has been in the past––announced that the critically-acclaimed series “Dear White People” has been renewed for Season 2. Based on Justin Simien’s 2014 film of the same name, the show follows a group of students of color at a predominantly white Ivy League where racial tensions are simmering.

The film originally began as a concept trailer that Simien, who also created and executive produces the show, funded with his tax refund. It then went on to win the grand jury selection at Sundance, and we’ve been happily riding along this inspiring, hilarious journey ever since. Can’t wait to see where Sam and crew end up next!
