Characters will walk the halls of Winchester University one last time in the 10-episode season, which sees Simien returning as writer, co-showrunner, and executive producer alongside Yvette Lee Bowser.
“I’m so grateful my little indie-that-could has made it to four seasons at Netflix,” Simien said in a statement. “This show, along with the many talented storytellers it has brought into my orbit, has changed my life and I can’t wait to create a celebratory final volume befitting such a transformative experience.”
The series, which follows students at the fictional Ivy League school as they navigate race, sexuality and everything in between, stars Logan Browning, Ashley Blaine Featherson, Antoinette Robertson, DeRon Horton, Marque Richardson, Brandon P. Bell, and John Patrick Amedori. They’ll all return for the final season.
Although a date for the final season premiere has not been announced yet, the cast is still celebrating. Watch their adorable reaction in the video below:
