Netflix Renews “Dear White People,” “F is for Family”

Netflix has renewed two comedies with the animated series “F is for Family” getting a third season, and the recent series adaptation of Justin Simien’s acclaimed film “Dear White People” getting a second season.

‘Family’ co-creator Bill Burr tweeted the news on Wednesday saying “Really happy to announce there will be a season 3 of FIFF. Thanks to everyone for watching”.

The series – whose voice cast includes the likes of Laura Dern, Justin Long and Sam Rockwell – follows an Irish-American clan living in the 1970’s, a time when political correctness was the last thing on people’s minds.

Simien created the series version of ‘Dear’ in addition to executive producing. The story follows a group of students of color at a predominantly white Ivy League university where racial tensions bubble just below the surface.
