The end of Dear White People 3 had a lot of loose ends and unanswered questions which have prompted many to inquire about the release date of a fourth season. Interestingly, since most projects on Netflix are mainly renewed based on the number of views, as well as the profitability of the series, it is possible that Dear White People has been able to get clearance from the network. Here is everything you need to know.
Dear White People is one of those movies the whole family can enjoy together. Its blend of comedy and romance is what anyone can trust to bring back excitement and laughter in a place, irrespective of the gloomy mood. More so, the movie’s plot that surrounds the campus life of students from different cultural backgrounds makes it appealing to different types of people.
It is also known that this popular TV series was an adaptation of a 2014 movie bearing the same name. In the series, a school is shown which had more white people and a few blacks. There were also multiple cases of frictions between blacks and whites and this heightened when a provocative Halloween party is set.

Will Dear White People Have A 4th Season?
A recent trend noticed about Netflix is that most of its aired shows only last for three seasons, this has kept many wondering whether Dear White People which is aired on the network, would be renewed after its 3rd season. In view of that, it was obvious that the end of the 3rd season is definitely not the end of the show. There were many unanswered questions with regards to the Order of X and the state of the students in the campus, but notwithstanding, the onus of whether the show would be renewed lies on Netflix – they renew their contracts based on the number of views and the TV shows must be profitable to them before they go ahead with another installment.
Eventually, on October 2nd, 2019, the news everyone had been waiting for was announced. Dear White People will be having a fourth season and it is scheduled to premiere in 2020.
