Though this November will mark one full year since the debut of Aziz Ansari's Master of None on Netflix, the anniversary will not be marked with the hotly anticipated arrival of the award-winning show's second season. We can confirm that this is indeed a bummer. However, as our guy Aziz revealed in a new Emmys-centered chat with the Hollywood Reporter, the new batch of Master of None will be more than worth the wait.
"We're done writing, and we start shooting in a couple of weeks," Ansari told THR Tuesday during a discussion about the show's Emmy-nominated inaugural season. "Normally on these shows you have a pretty quick schedule, and you just go right back into writing. I was talking to Netflix, and I was like, 'Honestly, we're capped.' The show was so personalized, we dumped our heads into this, we just needed to be people and live our actual life."
Master of None, Ansari added, isn't the kind of show that would benefit from such a frantic turnaround time. "We covered so much stuff in season one and wanted to make sure the ideas we had in season two were equally interesting and the episodes were just as ambitious," Ansari said. "So we took a long break, and that's why season two hasn't come out yet. It won't come out until, like, April. I think the break helped us."
If Master of None's sophomore season is even remotely as brilliant as its first, then we all have absolutely nothing to worry about. Take your time Aziz!
