In the announcement video, Marquee Richardson revealed that Dear White People would return for a fourth season but that it would be the show's last. We also see the cast reacting to the news and they're pretty excited over the news.

Dear White People follows a group of students at the fictional Winchester University as they tackle everything from social issues to complicated personal relationships.

Season 3 of the Netflix show was met with mixed reviews but the performances from the talented cast definitely hold up, nonetheless.

Antoinette Robertson, who plays Coco on the show, expressed her excitement over the upcoming fourth season and the squad heading into senior year.

Dear White People season 4 does not have a release date just yet. However, it will definitely be on your screens in 2020. If the production schedule remains the same, we could be joining our favourite Winchester University students for their senior year next summer.

What do you guys think? Are you sad to hear that Dear White People will end after season 4?
