Viewers can also enjoy a special sneak peek of episode one on BET linear immediately after the “BET AWARDS” 2022 airing at 8 p.m. on Sunday, June 26.
In the reimagined new season, celebrities live together and join the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Texas Southern University as students. Nene Leakes, Ray J, Lamar Odom, Big Freedia, Stacey Dash, DreamDoll, India Love, and Slim Thug head back to class to expand their educational horizons.
The eight-episode series explores college life through a celebrity lens while showcasing the unique cultural and academic experience of HBCUs. Despite their respective fame and notoriety, each cast member is committed to focusing on their higher education as a personal challenge to prove it’s never too late.
Enrolled alongside current Texas Southern University students, the cast will work towards completing a specialty certificate program to cross the graduation stage.
