Netflix is not new to sensationalism, giving a heads up to projects that try to challenge cultural stereotypes and discrimination. One of the few shows deals with racial equality with equal honesty as it does with good twists. Dear white people are about a group of Black students speaking dominantly about racism and disrupting the all-white environment of prestigious Winchester University. They face several biases, selective outbursts, and petty politics. The series is one of those shows which traces back its origin to a movie. This show is based on the same name, which was released in 2014. And the writer and director of this series is Justin Simien.
What are the Expected Possibilities?
Season 3 ended with everybody finding out a top-secret group called Order of X. It was not a hoax; it was quite hard to find any info of this super classified group because bold guys like Sam and Troy also couldn’t hinge out any information. In the season finale, everybody’s favorite, Dr. Edwin Ruskin (Giancarlo Esposito), also informed the group that they exist and are very powerful and hold many powerful positions.
They are behind some very gnarly scandals that never came to light. Moreover, they shut every mouth that can disrupt their environment and harm their ability to hold on to their wealth and status. They have shut up some serious sexual assaults like the ones against Professor Moses Brown.
It is a possibility that Sam, with her friends, will try to unravel the mysteries behind the name and plan to destroy the order or maybe amplify. The possibilities are countless. As the show goes, I would bet that the show will address some more social and discrimination issues. As the Deadline reported, Simien said, “offering opportunities to Black people might seem like enough, but are just a temporary change that does little to affect a more complicated system. With that, he explained that writers were considering the question of “What happens to a Black life after it’s been declared that it mattered?” as they moved into the Season.
When Can We Expect the Release?
The fourth season will be the last of Dear white people. But Simien conveyed that maybe this will not be the end of Winchester as he loves the idea of new spin-offs. Dear white people was, unfortunately, one of the shows that had to start and shut the shootings many times due to the Pandemic. Show started filming again in the Fall and had to shut the shooting again due to Uprising in the Covid cases in LA. There was no sign that Season resumed shooting. Still, the Season will release in 2021, so guessing by the shooting left and done, the show will start streaming sometime in the Fall or late summer.
