Rooted in the singular comedic viewpoints of Aziz Ansari, Netflix’s critically acclaimed, Emmy Award-winning original series “Master of None” returns for its anticipated second season with a wide, ambitious scope and a renewed focus on heartfelt and hilarious storytelling.
Ansari reprises his role as Dev, an actor in his early thirties who’s struggling to make his way through everyday life with the support of a close-knit group of friends. As the new season opens, Dev’s temporarily moved from New York to small-town Italy to pursue his passion for pasta-making. His experiences there set the stage for the next chapter in his journey—Dev’s dealing with challenges in his personal and family relationships, pursuing a new career opportunity, and embarking on a developing, if complicated, romance with someone very meaningful to him.
Created and executive produced by Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang, “Master of None” premiered in late 2015 to rapturous reviews praising its insightful comedy and its unique, cinematic style. The show collected dozens of accolades, with Ansari and Yang winning a 2016 Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series for their groundbreaking episode, “Parents.” The series was the recipient of four Emmy Award nominations, a Peabody Award, an AFI Award, and the Critics' Choice Award for Best Comedy.
All 10 episodes of the second season of “Master of None” will stream exclusively to Netflix viewers beginning May 12.
The series was created by Aziz Ansari ("Parks and Recreation") and Alan Yang ("Parks and Recreation"), who serve as executive producers with Mike Schur (Brooklyn Nine-Nine"), Dave Miner ("30 Rock," "Brooklyn Nine-Nine"), Dave Becky ("Louie," "Broad City") and Igor Srubshchik (“Crashing,” “Girls”).
