Justin Simien’s Dear White People film dazzled audiences as it traveled on the independent film circuit back in 2014. It has since been spun off into a Netflix series, which was just renewed for an upcoming third season.
The renewal was just announced in the form of a social asset by narrator Giancarlo Esposito (finally seen for the first time in the Season 2 finale) on behalf of the Order of X (see clip below).
Based on Justin Simien’s acclaimed debut indie feature and produced by Lionsgate, Dear White People is set against the backdrop of a predominantly white Ivy League university where racial tensions bubble just below the surface. The satirical series — which picks up where the 2014 Sundance hit 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.
A release date for Dear White People‘s third season has not been announced.
