Netflix orders second season of Aziz Ansari’s ‘Master Of None’

Ten new episodes of the New York-set comedy-drama will launch in 2017

Netflix has renewed Master Of None for a second season.

Created by Aziz Ansari and former Parks And Recreation writer Alan Yang, the acclaimed comedy-drama stars Ansari as Dev, a 30-year-old actor trying to navigate life in New York City.

Season one launched on Netflix in November and Ansari announced on Twitter last night (February 11) that the streaming giant has ordered a second batch of episodes to air in 2017. He also shared a teaser clip featuring the titles of the 10 new episodes – check it out below.

Ansari’s co-stars in Master Of None include Noël Wells, Eric Wareham, Lena Waithe, Kelvin Yu and Colin Salmon, who plays a fictionalised version of himself. Guest stars in season one included Claire Danes and Noah Emmerich.

Discussing Master Of None last October, Ansari told NME: “The overall ideas are about seeing things from other people’s perspectives and empathy, being curious about the world and indecisive and not knowing what to do with your life.”

Ansari was nominated for this year’s Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy for his performance in Master Of None, but lost out to Mozart In The Jungle‘s Gael García Bernal.
