Netflix is just days away from rolling out its next original series, Dear White People, and the cast and crew have a message for viewers: stay woke.

The show is based on the award-winning film by Justin Simien and takes place at Winchester University, a fictional college campus, and forces each character to answer the question, “Who ARE you?”

Peep the official synopsis:

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. The satirical series — which picks up where the acclaimed 2014 film by the same name left off – follows a group of Winchester University’s students of color as they navigate a diverse landscape of social injustice, cultural bias, political correctness (or lack thereof) and activism in the millennial age. Through an absurdist lens, Dear White People utilizes biting irony, self-deprecation and sometimes brutal honesty to hold up a mirror to the issues plaguing society today, all the while leading with laughter.

The show stars Logan Browning, who recently spoke with EBONY about her role, Brandon P. Bell, Antoinette Robertson, DeRon Horton, John Patrick Amedori, Ashley Blaine Featherson and Marque Richardson.

Check out a behind-the-scenes video of the cast below.

Dear White People hits Netflix on April 28th. Will you be watching?
