While Stacey Dash gets a crash course in Black history, Big Freedia and Slim Thug tackle homophobia. A teaser hints at a homework-related blowup between Nene and Ray J, but they aren’t the only ones who have a hard time finding common ground in Season 1.
We have reason to believe that Lamar is at odds with not one, but seemingly all of his classmates. And we can't say that we're surprised.
Series creator Tracey Edmonds expressed her excitement about the series' return in a statement published by Deadline. Her statement read, “I am so elated to partner with Texas Southern University and be able to bring back this cherished franchise with an exciting new twist that I am sure will entertain and inspire new and old fans across the board."
“We intend to provide a fun but sometimes challenging journey that will show viewers it’s never too late to go back to school,” she added.
College Hill isn’t creator Tracey’s only claim to fame. Along with being married to the Babyface Edmonds, she executive produced series like Soul Food and Games People Play. Her producer credits also include Good Luck Chuck, Jumping the Broom, and Light It Up.
Following College Hill’s debut on television, the series was wildly successful. Season 4 — which was filmed at the University of The Virgin Islands — brought in a record number of viewers. At the time, the series was crowned the number one series among Black households.
Sadly, College Hill ultimately came to an end after six seasons.
