July 1 (UPI) -- Netflix says it has ordered a second season of its satirical series Dear White People.

Production on Season 2 will begin later this year, with the 10 new episodes expected to debut in 2018.

Yvette Lee Bowser is returning as showrunner.

Season 1 premiered in April and picked up where the 2014 movie by the same name left off.

"Set against the backdrop of a predominantly white Ivy League university where racial tensions bubble just below the surface, Dear White People is a send-up of the now post 'post-racial' America that weaves together a universal story of finding one's own identity and forging a wholly unique path," a synopsis from the streaming service said.
