From the subject dialogue of cyberbullying to dealing with differences from political lines and relationship goals, Dear White People had moments this season that will make the viewing audience self-reflective towards either their actions or to the stories of those around them.
Regarding the overall flow of the storyline this season, I was pleasantly surprised to see the versatility of Logan Browning’s character Samantha’s personality and Lionel’s development, which is portrayed by DeRon Horton. I even enjoyed the storyline that incorporated the historical reference between the campus’ past students and the racial tensions they faced while in the end showcasing an actor, in my opinion, that represents classic college days Giancarlo Esposito, also known as Julian from School Daze, a 1988 Spike Lee film. But I felt the other characters’ storylines were mildly advanced.
I guess to remain light-hearted while still showcasing serious and often triggering subject matter, the show’s creator decided to take the break out experiences of the previous season to carefully highlight and craft his character development and advancement around this season. Perhaps we will see the other characters that were mildly advanced this season be showcased in Season 3.
As mentioned, Dear White People currently airs on Netflix, where you can catch up on Season 1 and 2 before the third season begins. On June 21st, actor Giancarlo Esposito, who was aforementioned above, mysteriously announced that Dear White People had been renewed for Season 3. So, I advise you to catch up on Season 1 and 2 and be prepared for what new adventures the show will take us on in Season 3. Check the video and the article in regards to the Season 3 teaser here.
