Classes will be back in session at Winchester University one last time.

Netflix recently announced Dear White People has been renewed for a fourth and final season. The comedy centers on racial tensions at a predominantly white Ivy League university, and life in “post-racial” America as students of color navigate social injustice, cultural bias, and political correctness.

The satirical series is based on a 2014 film by the same name from Justin Simien.

“I’m so grateful my little indie-that-could has made it to four seasons at Netflix!” Simien said in a statement about the renewal. “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 cast includes Logan Browning, Antoinette Robertson, DeRon Horton, John Patrick Amedori, Ashley Blaine Featherson, Brandon P. Bell and Marque Richardson.

Dear White People is produced by Lionsgate Television for Netflix. Season 4 will consist of ten episodes, with Simien returning as co-showrunner, writer and executive producer, alongside co-showrunner and executive producer Yvette Lee Bowser.

The premiere date will be announced later. Watch the renewal announcement below.
