Netflix's Master Of None Returning In May
No specific release date has yet been announced, but is expected soon.
Netflix has announced that its dramedy series Master of None, co-created by Aziz Ansari (Parks and Recreation) and Alan Yang (The Good Place), will finally be coming back for Season 3 sometime in May. After a series of delays since Season 2 in 2017, the announcement was surprisingly quietly tucked under a "coming soon" column in a tweet from the streaming service sharing what's ahead in May.
According to Variety, the season will consist of five episodes--although it's unclear as of this writing if the series may adopt a model similar to other series, rolling out half of a season's episode on one date, then the rest later. The first five episodes are under a banner titled "Master of None Presents: Moments in Love," and these are expected to focus on Lena Waithe's character, Denise. These episodes have reportedly been co-written with Ansari and Waithe.

That Master of None is coming back at all is somewhat of a surprise, and likely a divisive one. In January 2018, in the wake of #MeToo, Ansari was accused of sexual misconduct by a woman using the pseudonym "Grace." Although public opinion was split on whether Ansari's actions constituted sexual misconduct and whether these accusations trivialized the #MeToo movement, Ansari publicly apologized, and has largely stayed out of the spotlight. In 2019, he spoke about the controversy in a special titled Aziz Ansari: Right Now.
