After a hiatus in 2017, Master of None is back for its third season.
First released in 2015, the comedy series is one of the earliest Netflix released in the space, and to many, it’s yet to be topped. Aziz Ansari, Alan Yang created the series. It has aired for 20 episodes over two seasons.
Back in April 2017, the show was put into hiatus with Ansari telling Vulture “I don’t know if we’re going to do a season three. I wouldn’t be surprised if I needed a looonng break before I could come back to it” adding “I’ve got to become a different guy before I write a third season, is my personal thought, I’ve got to get married or have a kid or something. I don’t have anything else to say about being a young guy being single in New York eating food around town all the time.”
Since season 2, Netflix is rumored to have been eager for the series to return. It should not be surprising. It won a number of awards, including two Emmys wins and a Golden Globe win.
Well, it looks like it’s time for that return as Chortle is reporting a third season is in development but will be taking place in London this time around (previous seasons have been set in Italy and New York).
The news comes from Chortle which is a UK-centric comedy news portal that’s been in operation since 2000. Although it’s definitely worth noting Netflix has yet to confirm the news officially.
Chortle also adds that Naomi Ackie, a British actress who featured in Star Wars: Episode 9 as Jannah and on Netflix’s The End of the F***ing World as Boonie will have a starring role. They don’t reveal her exact role but predicts it will be as a love interest with Lena Waithe from the previous two seasons returning
According to reports, production began last spring but was delayed due to COVID-19.
Aziz Ansari has now released his third Netflix stand-up special, Aziz Ansari Right Now. It covers the accusations that were made against him and continues to linger.
For now, we’ll wait for official confirmation but let us know in the comments if you’re looking forward to seeing Master of None return.
