It may not be totally surprising to learn that Dear White People has been picked up for a third season, it's still reason to celebrate - and in a world where we increasingly have few reasons to do so, this is pretty excellent news.
June 11, 2018
Overall, Dear White People Vol. 2 is like a Black American Twitter timeline made flesh.
May 30, 2018
With each episode of the season focusing on a different character, Dear White People's second season adds new depth to well-drawn characters that carry over from season one.
May 29, 2018
It brings the messy grey areas of the conversations people of color and white liberals are having in the real world to the screen - voicing the pain, the guilt, and the resentment all at once.
May 22, 2018
What differentiates Dear White People from [other shows]...is the sheer density of its TV trolling.
May 11, 2018
I can honestly say, it's GOOD!
May 11, 2018
Threaded into these personal stories are the ambitious, funny, strange little touches that make Dear White People more than just a position paper on how to talk about issues of race in 2018.
May 10, 2018
Dear White People has returned! Season two landed this week on Netflix, picking up just a few short weeks after the emotionally charged finale.
May 9, 2018
The complex themes conquered in the show's first two seasons have the ability to both educate and entertain, without feeling overly preachy.
May 8, 2018
This season, queerness is layered on top of race and gender politics, planting seeds for other important conversations about representation.
May 8, 2018
Dear White People has leveled up in quality during its second season - no small feat considering how consistently strong it was during its freshman outing.
May 8, 2018
Netflix has not only given viewers a show they will love to follow, but also one that looks to have some longevity potential, while still being relevant to our time.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

Logic and discourse may be out the window, but that doesn't mean people aren't trying to pull them back inside. Dear White People is an invigorating effort to do just that. Bring on next semester.

I can't think of any show that does better with the topics that DWP does right. It excels at fully immersing itself within queer black identity, but also can be so surface level that it is accessible to everyone.
May 7, 2018
But for the most part, it's as entertaining as it is pointed, deepening the topics of Season 1 by alluding to the reality outside the show.
May 4, 2018
If Dear White People season 1 was a commentary, then Dear White People season 2 is a dangerous, curious prediction.
May 4, 2018
More than anything, Dear White People marks itself as a show that more people (and more critics) should be talking about, because few shows on TV feel as eager to instigate as many meaningful conversations.
May 4, 2018
Overall, the second season isn't as cohesive as it could be. But even the show's messiness is endearing. It's an encouragement to listen to that narration, to watch it all again... this time to watch even closer.
May 4, 2018
Leaps and bounds better than Season One... this season is allowed to plot its own course.
May 4, 2018
The series offers a dim view of communication in an increasingly tribal world.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
