Get ready to return to Winchester University for one final ride.
Netflix has renewed “Dear White People” for a fourth and final season, with creator Justin Simien returning as co-showrunner for the 10-episode send-off. Yvette Lee Bowser will continue as co-showrunner and executive producer.
“I’m so grateful my little indie-that-could has made it to four seasons at Netflix,” said Simien of the renewal news. “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 renewal announcement was made via a video of a group Facetime initiated by series star Marque Richardson and involving all the other main cast members.
“I brought you all here to tell you ‘Dear White People’ will be back for a fourth and final season,” Richardson screams to whoops and celebration from everyone on the call.
“Dear White People” was created by Simien based on his 2014 movie of the same name. Produced by Lionsgate Television, the series stars Logan Browning, Richardson, DeRon Horton, Brandon P. Bell, Antoinette Robertson, Ashley Blaine Featherson and John Patrick Amedori, among others.
The shows joins a host of other Netflix shows ending after their next seasons, including “Glow,” “BoJack Horseman,” “Grace and Frankie,” and “The Ranch.”
