Netflix have announced the premiere date for Season 2 of Aziz Ansari’s brilliant comedy Master of None: the next 10 episodes will debut on May 12.
Based on the comedic viewpoints of Aziz Ansari, the show follows the personal and professional lives of Dev (Ansari), a 30-year-old actor in New York who has trouble deciding what he wants to eat, much less the pathway for the rest of his life. Ambitious, funny, cinematic, and both sweeping in scope and intensely personal, Dev’s story takes him through subjects as diverse as the plight of the elderly, the immigrant experience, and how to find the most delicious pasta for dinner.
Ansari stars in and created the series with Alan Yang (Parks and Recreation); both serve as executive producers alongside Mike Schur (Parks and Recreation), Dave Becky (Louie) and David Miner (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt).
Master of None season one also stars H. Jon Benjamin (Archer, Bob’s Burgers), Eric Wareheim (Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, The Comedy), Lena Waithe (The Comeback), Noel Wells (Saturday Night Live) and Kelvin Yu (Milk, Star Trek) and is produced by Universal TV and 3 Arts for Netflix.
May will be an insanely busy month for television we love: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and House of Cards return to Netflix in the weeks following Master of None, while Twin Peaks begins on Showtime and Starz launch American Gods. Fargo, The Leftovers and Better Call Saul will be continuing their runs on FX, HBO and AMC, respectively.
