Good news for fans of Aziz Ansari. The long wait for the return of his Emmy-winning comedy series “Master of None” is almost over. News came Wednesday that it is set to return for a second season on May 12. And because it streams on Netflix, that means all 10 episodes will be available that day for binge-watching.
Ansari created this showcase in which he stars as Dev, a struggling actor in New York who faces many obstacles in both his personal and professional life. The freshman season debuted in November, 2015 and won the Critic’s Choice Award as Best Comedy Series in January 2016. Ansari also received a Golden Globe nomination and reaped a staggering four Emmy bids for writing, directing, starring and producing the show. He prevailed with Samuel Valle and Alan Yang for scripting the instant classic “Parents.”
Season end ended with Dev and his sometime girlfriend Rachel (Noel Wells) on a break. After she heads off to Tokyo, he decides to go to Italy with his best friend Arnold (Eric Wareheim) and enroll in a culinary course. The teaser trailer for season two (watch below) includes shots of Ansari and Wareheim travelling the byways of Italy on scooters.
