Justin Simien’s ‘Dear White People Vol. 2’ Returns To Netflix May 4
May the Fourth be with you as Sam, Troy, Coco, and Lionel explore racial tensions and the now post “post-racial” America on Dear White People Vol. 2.
No spoilers from us, but if you haven’t seen Dear White People on Netflix, yet, please do so immediately. It was explosive, revelatory, and full of threads that were left open and unconnected for a reason. That reason being that Justin Simien’s popular dramedy is back for another season, as Netflix dropped a new announcement trailer which you can watch below.
Set against the backdrop of a predominantly white Ivy League university known as Winchester University, Dear White People examines the racial nuances, tensions and threads that weave together a universal story of finding one’s own identity, forging a wholly unique path, and defying the odds.
Dear White People Vol. 2 continues to follow the characters we met in the film version and fell deeper in love with on Netflix. Logan Browning (Sam), Marque Richardson (Reggie), Brandon P. Bell (Troy), Antoinette Robertson (Coco), Ashley Blaine Featherson (Joelle) and DeRon Horton (Lionel) all reprise their roles from season one, while new character are surely to be introduced throughout the 10-episode arc.
Through Justin Simien and Yvette Lee Bowser (A Different World, Living Single) absurdist, satirical lens and words — Dear White People Vol. 2 promises biting irony, self-deprecation, real AF talk and reflections that hold up a mirror to the issues plaguing us as a human race, all the while never losing its sense of humor.
Dear White People will return to binge-watchers’ Netflix screens on May 4.
