The topic of race in America has become rather touchy in the past few years. Racial tension is nothing new in the United States given the country’s dark history, however this has been further catalyzed by events such as the countless examples of police brutality against African-Americans and the Black Lives Matter movement. Regardless of how messy things may be however, it is crucial to continue to educate people about these matters in order to enact progress and change. The Netflix show Dear White People has been doing that since it first debuted in 2017, and with great success. While the series is coming to an end this year, fans will still get one last season of Dear White People and now, they have the trailer and release date for it as well.
Dear White People follows a group of African-American students as they attend an Ivy League college, navigating the world of college while also dealing with subjects regarding race, sexuality and everything in between. The series has been wildly successful in its three season run, however the upcoming fourth season is set to be its final. The trailer is interesting because it is rather succinct and highlights a musical element, something the show isn’t known for, potentially alluding to something interesting for fans. Despite how succinct it is however, it still provides possibly the most important piece of information regarding the final season: season four of Dear White People will debut on Netflix September 22nd.
Despite how successful Dear White People has been over the past few years, racial tensions certainly haven’t subsided. Maybe its end can be considered a sign of progress though, that the series did its job and educated others about important topics such as race. If nothing else, it at least provided humor and joy to those who could relate with the show’s themes and tropes and that alone makes it a success regardless. Dedicated fans can tune in to Netflix September 22nd for the final season of Dear White People.
