VOD News | On 17, Apr 2018
Cultural appropriation, sex and gender norms, racist bots, conspiracy theories, Jesus, weed, The Sunken Place, oppression. That’s what on the way in Dear White People Season 2 – and that’s just in the new trailer for the show’s return.
Based on the film by Justin Simien, the series exp;ores post-racial America with satirical wit, with Season 1 following Troy Fairbanks (Brandon P. Bell), the son of the dean of students, who is campaigning to become Winchester University’s first black student president. Navigating a predominantly white Ivy League college, where racial tensions are often swept under the rug, the series wove a universal story about forging one’s own unique path among a diverse group of students, all held together by Samantha White (Logan Browning), whose titular radio show gives her a post in the campus’ political movement.
Within a few months of that first season, Netflix announced that it had ordered sophomore run, with Browning, P. Bell, Antoinette Robertson, DeRon Horton, John Patrick Amedori, Ashley Blaine Featherson and Marque Richardson all returning to reprise their roles. Yvette Lee Bowser will also return as showrunner, with Stephanie Allain and Julia Lebedev again executive-producing.
Now, we have a release date, as well as a first glimpse of what’s in store. Dear White People Volume 2 will premiere on Friday 4th May. Here’s the video:
