Dear White People Video Announces Vol. 3 Premiere Date

-

Salty grits or sweet grits? That is the debate in a new video from the cast of Dear White People, which was posted on the Netflix YouTube channel today. You can check out the video in the player below. It also announces the date for the premiere of the third season of the show, which is August 2.

Dear White People is based on Justin Simien’s 2014 film of the same name. The series comes to us from Roadside Attractions and stars Logan Browning, Brandon P. Bell, DeRon Horton, Antoinette Robertson, John Patrick Amedori, Ashley Blaine Featherson, and Marque Richardson, with narration by Giancarlo Esposito.

The announcement video aired on Juneteenth, a holiday commemorating the abolition of slavery in Texas on June 19, 1865. The tagline for the new season is, “New characters, new relationships, new secrets.”

Set against the backdrop of a predominantly white Ivy League university where racial tensions bubble just below the surface, Dear White People is a send-up of the now post “post-racial” America that weaves together a universal story of finding one’s own identity and forging a wholly unique path. The satirical series — which picked up where the acclaimed 2014 film by the same name left off – follows a group of Winchester University’s students of color as they navigate a diverse landscape of social injustice, cultural bias, political correctness (or lack thereof) and activism in the millennial age. Through an absurdist lens, Dear White People utilizes biting irony, self-deprecation and sometimes brutal honesty to hold up a mirror to the issues plaguing society today, all the while leading with laughter.

In the video, cast members discuss which is better; salty grits with cheese and butter, or sweet grits with sugar and cinnamon. We’d love to hear your thoughts on the debate. Are you guys excited for the return of the series? Let us know in the comments or tweet us @vitalthrills.com.
