First teaser for Dear White People Season 2 is here — and surprise, both Lena Waithe and Todrick Hall stop by Winchester

Calling all Dear White People fans! Ready to go back to Winchester University? You better be, because the teaser to the hotly-anticipated second season is here!

Season 2 of the satirical series picks up where the first season finale left off, with Sam (Logan Browning), Reggie (Marque Richardson), Troy (Brandon P. Bell), and other students deal with the aftermath of their failed protest. And unlike Season 1 which primarily dealt with a racist blackface party, the upcoming season will be largely focusing on secrets, show creator Justin Simien tells Entertainment Weekly.

"There’s a lot of secrets to uncover this season, in particular, who is coming after Sam," he divulged, referring to the mysterious online troll who has been attacking Sam during the protest. "Everyone’s got secrets this season — secrets from each other, secrets from themselves. There’s lots of things that the characters don’t know and have kind of repressed, and sort of going into those treasure troves is something a lot of the characters are doing."

Meanwhile, Nia Jervier and Marque Richardson previously told that the second season would be “explosive.

"There's a bunch of explosions, there's car chases, bombs going off. It's crazy," Richardson dished. "But the writers, they really wrote their asses off, and if Netflix allows what is on the paper to translate to the screen, minds are going to explode all over the place."

"It's almost on steroids," Jervier added. "Everytime we read the new script, a new script for the next episode, we were all freaking out. There's even an episode so crazy that all of the writers and producers in the room put their cell phones on to videotape us."

Without further ado, watch the teaser below:

An entire season diving into subjects like cultural appropriation, sex and gender norms, nepotism, racist bots, conspiracy theories, cocoa butter, The Sunken Place, fake news, and oppression (aka the new Katy Perry single feat. Migos)? Sign us up!

Dear White People Season 2 hits Netflix on May 4th.
