The first season of Parks and Recreation alum Aziz Ansari’s Master of None, which scored him and his writing partner an Emmy win, is very good. Hence why Netflix ordered a second season that’s due to hit everybody’s queues Friday, May 12th. And judging by what we’ve seen so far, it looks like Aziz and company pulled off yet another fantastic season of original programming for the streaming giant. So of course Netflix will order a third season from the Master of None crew, right?
Taking a page from Louie creator Louis C.K.’s playbook, Ansari told New York magazine he’s not sure he can do a third season of Master of None anytime soon. Or at all, for that matter, as the stand-up comedian and actor wants a “looonng break” before he considers getting “back to it” for another go-round:
“I’ve got to become a different guy before I write a third season, is my personal thought. 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.”
Considering the show’s central plot line, which follows Dev’s (Ansari) attempts to navigate the single life in New York and abroad, this makes sense. After all, Ansari and co-creator Alan Yang based much of the show’s material on their own lives (much like C.K.’s semi-autobiographical Louie). As far as the public is concerned, Ansari has been single since he and professional chef Courtney McBroom ended their relationship last year. And when New York asked him about the Italy trip on which Master of None‘s second season is based, he said he “was really just hanging out with grandmas.”
