Netflix has released the first trailer and posters for Master of None Season 2, which teases the overseas travels of Aziz Ansari's Dev, and his return home to New York City. The posters feature Dev in various European locales, and if you look closely at the trailer, you'll see a brief cameo by Oscar and Grammy-winning musical artist John Legend, who is seen playing the piano during a brief scene.
The Emmy award-winning comedy is back! After traveling abroad, Dev (Aziz Ansari) returns to New York to take on challenges in his personal and family life, a new career opportunity, and a complex, developing relationship with someone very meaningful to him. Ambitious, funny, cinematic, and both sweeping in scope and intensely personal, Master of None dives into subjects as diverse as the plight of dating in a digital world, religion, coming out to your family and how to find the most delicious pasta for dinner. The new season will debut in its entirety on Friday, May 12 on the Netflix streaming service.
Best known for his role on the award-winning series Parks and Recreation, comedian Aziz Ansari stars, writes, and directs Master of None, a new original comedy series loosely based on his own life experiences. Master of None follows the personal and professional lives of Dev, a 30-year-old actor in New York who has trouble deciding what he wants to eat, much less the pathway for the rest of his life. The new trailer also features glimpses of series stars such as Eric Wareheim, Bobby Cannavale, Kym Whitley, Angela Bassett and Aziz Ansari's real-life parents, Shoukath Ansari and Fatima Ansari, who play Dev's parents, Ramesh and Nisha.
Master of None was created by Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang who also serve as executive producers along with Michael Schur, Dave Becky, David Miner and Igor Srubshchik. Master of None is a Universal Television production for Netflix. The original comedy series won an Emmy Award last year for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series (Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang), and Aziz Ansari also picked up nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Directing in a Comedy Series, along with Outstanding Comedy Series.
During the first season of this comedy series, Aziz Ansari wrote eight of the 10 episodes, and directed two, although it's unclear how many episodes he will write and direct in the new season. Series co-star Eric Wareheim also directed four episodes last season, with filmmakers James Ponsoldt (The Spectacular Now) and Lynne Shelton (Laggies) also directing episodes in the inaugural season.
