Dear White People Season 2 Trailer Sees Racial Tensions Reach New Heights

Welcome to Winchester, remixed. 

Netflix dropped the first trailer for Dear White People season 2, giving fans a peek into what the series' sophomore turn will entail. Spoiler alert: Racial tensions will rise, the student of Winchester University will face even more complicated situations, and the show's clever satire and razor-sharp humor will hit an all-time high. 

While Sam White (Logan Browning) hops back into the audio booth to host her divisive radio show, her ex-boyfriend Gabe Mitchell (John Patrick Amedori) has stepped behind the camera to film a documentary entitled Am I Racist? Winchester's white student population continues to lash out against the university's black student unions, with one outspoken student dubbed "Kirkland Signature Ann Coulter" proclaiming, "I am not a white nationalist."

Elsewhere, Sam faces backlash after bringing more attention to her movement: a racist troll has begun spewing hatred her way online and tormenting her in person. (Dear White People creator Justin Simien previously explained that the identity of the vicious person is one of the second season's biggest mysteries.) Sadly, it appears that Sam can't turn to law enforcement for help, as Winchester University's firearm-equipped campus police are still a threat to students of color; the season 2 trailer shows Reggie (Marque Richardson) encountering one such officer, who's seen drawing his gun.

Take a look above.

Here's the official plot synopsis for Dear White People: "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 — based on the acclaimed 2014 film by the same name — continues to follow a group of Winchester University 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."

Dear White People also stars Brandon P. Bell as Troy Fairbanks, DeRon Horton as Lionel Higgins, Antoinette Robertson as Colandrea "Coco" Conners, Marque Richardson as Reggie Green, Ashley Blaine Featherson as Joelle Brooks, Obba Babatundé as Dean Fairbanks, Ally Maki as Ikumi, Caitlin Carver as Muffy Tuttle, Wyatt Nash as Kurt Fletcher, John Rubinstein as President Fletcher, Brant Daugherty as Thane Lockwood, Nia Long as Neika Hobbs, Nia Jervier as Kelsey Phillips, Jeremy Tardy as Rashid Bakr, Jemar Michael as Al, Francia Raisa as Vanessa, Alex Alcheh as Milo, and DJ Blickenstaff as Silvio.
