Here's our first look at Netflix's serialised remake of Dear White People. Like the 2014 word-of-mouth hit, the series follows a group of black students at a predominantly white Ivy League college as they attempt to navigate a world their peers believe is "post-racial."

Logan Browning, who played Sasha in Bratz: The Movie (your favourite film of 2007, if you're being honest) will lead the series as biracial radio host Sam -- the same role that won Tessa Thompson acclaim in the original film. The ten 30-minutes episodes will follow the same plot as the crowd funded indie success, although with much more screen time to fill we expect some new faces will pop up too. In fact, Netflix's Dear White People is a full three-and-half hours longer than the original, so we're sure there will be fresh conflicts, and much deeper explorations of the relationships we saw a couple years ago.

Dear White People premieres on Netflix  April 28th, 2017
