The Netflix series Dear White People will return for its fourth and final season.
Netflix’s critically-acclaimed series Dear White People has been renewed for a fourth and final season as the characters head back to Winchester University one last time. Vol. 4 will consist of ten all-new episodes, with creator Justin Simien returning as co-showrunner, writer and executive producer, alongside co-showrunner and executive producer Yvette Lee Bowser.
According to a Netflix press release, here’s what Justin Simien says of the series’ send-off season: “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.”
Dear White People dropped its second season of shows on May 4, 2018, with more intimate stories about the characters. We get to Sam (Logan Browning) who deals with life off-campus and a troll harassing her online. The second season also brought some important storylines for the supporting characters. Joelle (Ashley Blaine Featherson) finds love in the wrong places, while Troy (Brandon P. Bell) has an existential crisis. Cocoa (Antoinette Robertson), a fan-favorite, has a compelling story and fans received a momentary glimpse of her (almost) future.
Set to return for the comedy’s final season are series stars Logan Browning, Brandon P. Bell, Antoinette Robertson, DeRon Horton, John Patrick Amedori, Ashley Blaine Featherson and Marque Richardson, among others.
Dear White People is produced by Lionsgate Television for Netflix.
