Expanding on the 2014 film, Netflix's series version of 'Dear White People' balances satirical irony and deep-seated rage to tell a funny yet deadly serious story of identity politics on a college campus.

Production on Season 2 will begin later this year, with the 10 new episodes expected to debut in 2018.

Yvette Lee Bowser is returning as showrunner.

Season 1 premiered in April and picked up where the 2014 movie by the same name left off.

"Set against the backdrop of a predominantly white Ivy League university where racial tensions bubble just below the surface, Dear White People is a send-up of the now post 'post-racial' America that weaves together a universal story of finding one's own identity and forging a wholly unique path," a synopsis from the streaming service said.
