Aziz Ansari’s Master of None returning to Netflix for Season 3 this May


Fans who follow the Netflix Queue Twitter account were given quite the surprise on Wednesday, when it was confirmed that Master of None is returning in May.

The show, created by Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang, debuted in 2015 to acclaim from fans and critics alike, following Ansari’s character Dev, a stand-up comedian from New York City.

The second season didn’t arrive on Netflix until 2017, though the third season is said to focus on Lena Waithe’s character Denise, according to Variety

Netflix has yet to confirm any story details at this time, or if the new season does focus more on Denise, rather than Dev.

However, it was reported in early January by Chortle that the third season will feature Ansari, and it will be filmed in London, where Ansari now lives.

That report also claimed that British actress Naomi Ackie (The End of the F***ing World, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker) has signed on for an unspecified role.  

Production had actually started in London last year, though it was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, though it’s unclear when filming started back up again.

When asked about a third season in May, Ansari coyly suggested a new season was happening, stating, ‘‘If I’m not writing something now [during lockdown], it’s pretty lazy right?’

Back in 2017, Ansari suggested he would need a long break after Season 2, if he ever wanted to do a third season.

‘I don’t know if we’re going to do a season three. I wouldn’t be surprised if I needed a looonng break before I could come back to it,’ he told Vulture.

‘I’ve got to become a different guy before I write a third season, is my personal thought, I’ve got to get married or have a kid or something. I don’t have anything else to say about being a young guy being single in New York eating food around town all the time,’ he joked.

Ansari made headlines in 2018, a year after Season 2 debuted, when a woman shared an account from a date with Ansari, claiming he was aggressive and he pressured her into sex.

The story went viral and set off a controversy of its own, with some claiming it was just a bad date and others criticizing the comedian for his behavior.

Ansari ultimately moved to London in 2018 and briefly addressed the sexual misconduct controversy in his 2019 Netflix special Right Now.

‘There’s times I felt scared. There’s times I felt humiliated. There’s times I felt embarrassed. And ultimately, I just felt terrible that this person felt this way,’ he said.
