Netflix Renews ‘Dear White People’ for Final Season

Ten Final Episodes Ordered

Netflix has greenlit drama “Dear White People” for a fourth — and final — season, with an order for 10 new episodes with creator Justin Simien returning as co-showrunner, writer and executive producer, alongside co-showrunner and executive producer Yvette Lee Bowser. 

Set against the backdrop of a predominantly white Ivy League university where racial tensions bubble just below the surface, “Dear White People” is a send-up of the now post “post-racial” America that weaves together a universal story of finding one’s own identity and forging a wholly unique path. The satirical series — which picked up where the acclaimed 2014 film by the same name 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. Through an absurdist lens, “Dear White People” utilizes biting irony, self-deprecation and sometimes brutal honesty to hold up a mirror to the issues plaguing society today, all the while leading with laughter.
