The second season spent almost all of its episodes for following the search for a secret society on the campus of Winchester called The Order of X.

The order is more powerful than you’ll ever know. You must kill the narrator,” in the voice of the Narrator, Giancarlo Esposito in the trailer.
“The only voice you need in your head is your own,” Esposito tells Samantha White.
“Kill the narrator,” White replies.
The clip also reveals that Samantha has quit her position as the host of the popular radio broadcast “Dear White People.” She has been replaced by Joelle Brookes (Ashley Blaine Featherson).
“Same title, new spin,” says Brookes in the trailer while promising a reboot of the hit show that will be ‘Moonlight’ meets ‘Sex and the City.’ She also adds that it will be “boiling all over with the tea.”
