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.
