We also hope to uncover more about the secret society Order of X. “Virtue signaling” and “meritocracy” are big themes—like how caring about an issue for a moment or offer opportunities to Black people might seem like enough, but are just a temporary change that does little to affect a more complicated system,” Simien told Deadline. He explained that the focus this season is “What happens to a Black life after it’s been declared that it mattered?”
