Netflix Just Dropped The Amazing Official Trailer For 'Dear White People'

“Trigger warning: The following program is meant for both white and black audiences. And every other color imaginable.”

Netflix released the first full trailer for its upcoming show “Dear White People” on Thursday, and it begins with a cheeky disclaimer.

“Trigger warning: the following program is meant for both white and black audiences,” a voiceover says. “And every other color imaginable.”

Adapted from director Justin Simien’s 2014 film of the same name, the show follows several black students navigating racial tension at a predominantly white Ivy League university. 

The show faced backlash in February after the release of a 30-second teaser trailer that prompted a Twitter campaign to “#BoycottNetflix” for apparently creating “anti-white” content

But a look at the new two-minute trailer, above, shows that “Dear White People” will tackle a whole host of complex issues, from interracial relationships, to being black and queer, to the pitfalls of assimilation. 

The 10-episode series will premiere on April 28.
