The doors of Winchester University reopen this May, which means that the second season of Netflix’s hugely successful series Dear White People officially has a premiere date.
In fact, to make sure the fans of the series get their fix, the good folks over at the streaming service released the first teaser of the season, and it’s definitely made an impact.
The sharp satire’s second season picks up right where the first left off, with Sam (Logan Browning), Reggie (Marque Richardson), Troy (Brandon P. Bell) and the other students dealing with the repercussions of their failed protest.
The series’ creator, Justin Simien, revealed to Entertainment Weekly that while season one was structured around a racist blackface party that disturbed the Black students on the campus, the new season’s plot will be a bit of a mystery to viewers, at first.
“There’s a lot of secrets to uncover this season, in particular, who is coming after Sam,” he said. “Everyone’s got secrets this season — secrets from each other, secrets from themselves. There’s lots of things that the characters don’t know and have kind of repressed, and sort of going into those treasure troves is something a lot of the characters are doing.”
In addition to the regular cast, some new faces of #BlackExcellence will be joining the fun including the likes of Lena Waithe, Todrick Hall, Kid Fury and more.
