Netflix’s ‘Master of None’ and Aziz Ansari Get a Second Season

     February 11, 2016


Aziz Ansari has kept a busy schedule since Parks and Recreation ended last year. He released a second Netflix stand-up special, Live at Madison Garden, released his book “Modern Romance”, and debuted the Netflix original series Masters of None, in which he writes, produces, and even partially directs. Netflix seems very happy with this ongoing collaboration, as it was just announced that Masters of None will be returning for a second season.

Earlier today, Ansari tweeted out a short video to announce the news. It doesn’t have anything in the way of new footage, relying solely on flashing titles of the episodes to the first season, but it is a nice reminder of the subjects he has tackled and the trajectory of his character thus far. Check it out below:

The first season of the show was greeted with enthusiasm from critics, and apparently attracted a respectable audience if Netflix is doubling down on it. With the show, Ansari had a platform to offer his comedic take on the contemporary world, one that is witty, honest, and lighthearted while unafraid to confront the tricky subjects. The writing and direction is solid, and all in all the show is well worth a watch. It’s great to see a talent like Ansari get an opportunity like this to share his humor. Be sure to check out the second season, and catch up on the first, which is now on Netflix.
