‘Master of None’ Season 3 Won’t Happen Until Aziz Ansari Gets Older
The intensely personal nature of Aziz Ansari’s Master of None left it uncertain if a second season would happen, at least at first. Eighteen months since have finally brought us to Season 2’s premiere, but should we expect the same of Season 3? If more Master of None happens at all, we’re going to need to give Aziz some space.
A lengthy Vulture profile of the former Parks and Recreation star inevitably turned to the possibility of Master of None Season 3, though – like Season 2 – the prospect is dependent on Ansari having the life experience to actually populate his stories. The comedian noted that Season 2 returns to the well of being young and single in New York, but a third season would likely wait for a new phase of his life:
‘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.’ He only wants to take on another season if he feels like he can beat the one before it. Plus, it’s a show based on his life, and that means he has to take time to live a life, because he’s feeling a little tapped for experiences. ‘I’ve got to become a different guy before I write a third season, is my personal thought,’ he says. ‘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.’
In the meantime, Season 2 will premiere all episodes on May 12, and continue the first year’s diverse approach to filmmaking and storytelling. There’s an episode shot primarily in black and white (and Italian); another showing Dev and Denise (Lena Waithe)’s friendship over the years, and one almost devoid of Ansari entirely, jumping between different perspectives of a variety of New Yorkers.
Watch the trailer for Season 2 below, and stay tuned for more on the May 12 premiere.
