Netflix’s “Dear White People” Will End With Final Season In 2020 - The Shade Room

Netflix’s “Dear White People” Will End With Final Season In 2020

Welp, another one bites the dust. Hours after it was announced that TNT’s popular series “Claws” will end with a final season in 2020, another fan-favorite show has now suffered the same fate. The Netflix hit “Dear White People” is set to end its run next year.

Netflix has a history of giving its shows 3-4 seasons, so it really shouldn’t come as that big of a surprise that “Dear White People” is officially coming to an end. As reported by @shadow_act, Netflix announced the news earlier this week and also revealed that like previous seasons, the final season will consist of 10 episodes to tie-up storylines and give a proper conclusion.

The news comes after the third season of the series just dropped on the streaming giant in early August. “Dear White People” centers on the students at the fictional, predominantly white Ivy League college Winchester University, most notably characters Sam, Joelle, Reggie, Lionel, Troy and Coco.

In response to news of the final season, series creator Justin Simien had this to say:

“I’m so grateful my little indie-that-could has made it to four seasons at Netflix! This show, along with the many talented storytellers it has brought into my orbit, has changed my life and I can’t wait to create a celebratory final volume befitting such a transformative experience.”

“Dear White People” was a television adaptation of the 2013 indie film of the same name that starred actress Tess Thompson is the lead role. Both the film and the series explored themes of social injustice, cultural bias, political correctness (or lack thereof) and activism in the millennial age.

No date is set yet for when the final season drops on Netflix.
