Fall is approaching, so that can only mean one thing. Class is in session at Winchester University. Samantha White, Coco Conners, Troy Fairbanks and the crew are getting ready to enter their senior year of college, but there are still so many questions that need to be answered before their collegiate journey comes to a close. After a two-year layoff due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it appears that Netflix is preparing a few answers. With season four on the horizon, here's everything we know about the final season four of Dear White People.
What Happened In Season Three?
At the end of season two, Lionel and Sam find themselves on the outside of this secret society called the "Order of X," The duo spends most of the season hunting this secret society down before Dr. Edward Ruskin, played by Giancarlo Esposito, explains that it is a group of powerful alumni that have devised schemes to cover up cases of sexual assault and other scandals. Along the way, Troy gets roped into the chase to uncover the order by putting together stories for his new magazine, Fried Chicanery. Through his own investigation, he learns that his Dad, Dean Fairbanks, has been a part of the secret society for some time and is actively helping his friend, Moses Brown, cover up a scandal. Towards the end, he joins Lionel and Sam in their efforts to bring down the Order of X.

Plot (Spoilers Ahead): If there's one thing that is true about Dear White People, it is that every season is different from the previous season. However, season four may be the most unique. Following the Sam and Lionel's chase for the Order of X in season three, it appears that the show's creator wants to take a more musical approach to season four. The first clip of the new season features Sam back in the radio station and members of the cast across campus doing their own rendition of "This Is How We Do It" by Montell Jordan. Also, Netflix has described the new season as "musical." Will it be an all-out musical? Will only certain episodes be musical? Who knows?
What Is The Cast Saying About Season Four?
The cast has been fairly tight-lipped about season four, so far. In the coming weeks, more will be revealed about the direction for the final season.
