It's time to "grow by any means necessary," Dear White People's third season emphasizes.

The Netflix comedy about students of color at Winchester University — an Ivy League school — navigating a diverse landscape of social injustice, cultural bias and more is set to return with a whole new set of stories on August 2. And as the tagline above indicates, change is on the horizon as our main cast continues to grow with the people around them.

As the newly released trailer picks up, it's clear that things are taking a shift in Season 3. And there's no shortage of poking fun either. "If everyone stayed exactly the same, life would be tedious and predictable... like a third season of a Netflix show," one character notes in a voice over.

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.

Preparing for new challenges and new faces, Joelle (Ashley Blaine Featherson) states it best when she says over the airwaves, "you're listening to Dear White People with Joelle Brooks — same title, new spin."
