Netflix has confirmed that Dear White People will return for their second seasons on 4 May.
The show, which has gained a cult following thanks to its controversial name and its satirical content – follows the story of a group of students of colour as they go through life in the predominantly white college of Winchester University.
At the end of last season, a protest on the school campus resulted in the arrest of Troy, who was nearly shot by the over-zealous security guards of the school.
The after-effects of the protest will have ongoing effects through the upcoming season two, and the trailer teasing what to expect reveals all the other issues the show is set to address.
With racial tensions continuing to simmer throughout the student body, the teaser trailer will continue its digs on the modern day world.
This includes but isn’t limited to: Cultural appropriation, sex and gender norms, online trolls, fake news and… Katy Perry & Jonathan Siennicki’s fictional latest single.
YouTube star and musician Todrick Hall is among the guest stars in this year’s series, and tweeted out the trailer to announce his appearance.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly about the upcoming series, the show’s creator Justin Simien revealed there was trouble in store for Sam – who becomes the target of hate online.
Simien continued: ‘There’s a lot of secrets to uncover this season, in particular, who is coming after Sam.
‘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,’ he added.
The show was born from the hit 2014 film of the same name, and was later turned into a show by Netflix as the story continued.
Dear White People Volume 2 will return to Netflix on 4 May.
