What Aziz Ansari said after completing Season 2
New Yorker Dev Aziz Ansari may be over 30, but he still has trouble deciding what he wants to eat, much less the pathway for the rest of his life. A condom mishap and a kid's birthday party prompt Dev to consider the reality of having children. First-generationers Dev and Brian try to show their appreciation for their immigrant parents at a joint family dinner.
I have something to say. But still, here goes. What a relief to finally say it out loud. Since series two debuted on Netflix, Master of None has enjoyed near-blanket acclaim. It has been praised for its ambition, its pursuit of non-traditional storytelling, its ability to surf the zeitgeist, or swegway the zeitgeist, or however it is young people manoeuvre around on zeitgeists these days. When Master of None takes a gamble and it pays off — when it devotes 10 minutes of screen time to a silent argument between two deaf people, or when an episode consists of multiple first dates stitched together in a disorientating jumble — it can be terrific. It shows that Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang are in possession of restless minds, eager to stretch the boundaries of what television can be capable of. Far from it.
The critically acclaimed and Emmy-winning series went on to have a second season that took place in Italy, where the main character Dev, played by Ansari, met a new love interest. Aziz Ansari has not completely dropped out of the Hollywood spotlight since the allegations, however. This past July, he released a new stand-up special called Right Now on Netflix. But fans of Ansari are still wondering if there will be a season 3 of Master of None. Season 2 inizia adesso!
