The Netflix original is a layered show that exudes emotional maturity while exposing race discriminations in America.

Dear White People Season 4 Cast: Who Can be in it?
Season 4 will see all our lead cast members making a return. We have Logan Browning as Samantha White (a college student at Winchester, trying to raise social awareness in the institute) and Brandon P. Bell as Troy Fairbanks. Joining them is DeRon Horton as Lionel Higgins (the intellectual school reporter), Antoinette Robertson as Colandrea “Coco” Conners (another black, young woman who is highly ambitious), John Patrick Amedori as Gabe Mitchell (Samantha’s lover), Ashley Blaine Featherson as Joelle Brooks, and Marque Richardson as Reggie Green.
Dear White People Season 4 Plot: What Can it be About?
In season 3, we had seen that things are not quite good at Winchester University. Sam and Lionel try to get to the bottom of the so-called existence of a secret society of elite black Winchester alumni, called The Order of X. The duo eventually discovers that professor Moses Brown is a part of The Order. When Brown ends up sexually assaulting Muffy, The Order covers up the whole incident. Season 4 is expected to pick up the story from here and expose the dirty truth about The Order. Sam, Troy, and Lionel will team up to uncover the hidden secrets of this cult organization. Again, as we had seen in the past three seasons, the final iteration is also expected to dive deeper into sensitive subjects like racism, sexuality, and the politics of academia.
