Netflix announced this morning that Dear White People has been renewed for a second season. The freshman comedy, which is based on Justin Simien's acclaimed indie film of the same name, premiered in April with 10 episodes that have received high praise by both audiences and critics.

Picking up where the 2014 film left off, the series offers a satirized take on "post-racial" America, following a diverse group of students of color as they navigate a predominantly-white Ivy League college that tends to brush off racial tension.

The streaming service has ordered another 10 episodes for Season 2 of Dear White People, with production due to start later this year for a likely return in 2018.
