The Netflix series “Dear White People” is coming back for a fourth season, but it will also be the last season of the show. The characters are heading back to Winchester University with almost a dozen new episodes, and Netflix released a celebratory video with the cast to hype up the new episodes.
The fourth season, or Vol. 4 if you prefer, will have ten all-new episodes to binge. Creator Justin Simien is returning as co-showrunner, writer and executive producer, alongside co-showrunner and executive producer Yvette Lee Bowser for the fourth season.
Simien talked about the send-off season in Netflix’s announcement saying, “I’m so grateful my little indie-that-could has made it to four seasons at Netflix! This show, along with the many talented storytellers it has brought into my orbit, has changed my life and I can’t wait to create a celebratory final volume befitting such a transformative experience.”
The Season 4 cast includes Logan Browning, Brandon P. Bell, Antoinette Robertson, DeRon Horton, John Patrick Amedori, Ashley Blaine Featherson, and Marque Richardson. “Dear White People” is produced by Lionsgate Television for Netflix.
The show’s official description reads, “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.”
