Netflix has renewed two shows that viewers have been binge-watching: Dear White People and F is for family.
Dear White People, the Netflix original series, boasts an impressive cast starring Logan Browning, Brandon P. Bell, Antoinette Robertson, DeRon Horton, John Patrick Amedori, Ashley Blaine Featherson, and Marque Richardson. Yvette Lee Bowser will also return as showrunner, with Stephanie Allain and Julia Lebedev returning as executive producers.
Production on the 10-episode second season is slated to begin later this year. The show has been receiving positive reviews, as it reflects the reality of racial tensions. According to a report by The Verge, the series picked up where the 2014 movie by the same name left off. It follows a group of Winchester University’s students of color as they navigate a diverse landscape of social injustice, cultural bias, political correctness, and activism in the millennial age. Dear White People uses biting irony and self-deprecation, the series attempts to reflect the issues plaguing society today. However, there is a lot of fun while depicting all these oddities.
Dear White People premiered globally on Netflix on April 28. Yvette Lee Bowser will also return as showrunner, with Stephanie Allain and Julia Lebedev as executive producers. It is produced by Lionsgate for Netflix.
Netflix has also renewed the animated comedy series F is for Family for a third season.
