Dear White People started out as a movie starring Tessa Thompson, but was scooped up by Netflix as an original series in 2017. If you haven’t watched the show, I highly suggest checking it out. The name is f-putting to some who believe the blatant mention race is just a sensationalized title meant to stoke the fires racial tension in America. Dear White People is actually the opposite. Logan Browning stars as Samantha White, a student at a predominantly white college. A mirror is held up to Black culture and White culture alike, and the strengths and weaknesses each race are put on full display in this edgy drama. Not only does the show tackle race, it also shines a light on homosexuality, toxic masculinity, and feminism, all without coming f as preachy or trite.
The second season Dear White People ended with a cliffhanger, so it was expected that the show would return for a third season. On Thursday, Netflix released a clip Giancarlo Esposito, who plays both the narrator Dear White People and also a member the show’s fictional secret society The Order X. In the short clip, Esposito steps into his on-screen roll and delivers a message to fans the series. “Now that I have your attention, this message is being delivered to you on behalf The Order X,” Esposito states. “I come with a message truth. To clarify the false information that’s being disseminated around the world today. ‘Dear White People’ will be returning to Netflix for a season 3. We’ll meet you there.” The third season the critically acclaimed Netflix series is set to debut next year.
