When it comes to continuing his Netflix comedy series “Master of None,” Aziz Ansari seems to be adopting the “Louie” approach of taking plenty of time between seasons.
The second season of the dramedy series hit the streaming service the other week, and this week Ansari says if a third season happens – it won’t be anytime soon. He tells Vulture:
“If we didn’t do a third season, yeah, I’d feel bad that we wouldn’t get to keep going, but I also wouldn’t want to do a third season if it wasn’t as inspired as what we did. And the reason we took a break between season one and season two was so we could make something that was really a step up. I wouldn’t want to have it be a step back and make it not as cool as exciting. I think we need some time to refill the notebook.
If I had my druthers – whatever druthers are – any time the notebook was filled up and me and [co-creator] Alan [Yang] felt like we had a few, we would call up Netflix, and say, ‘Okay, let’s do it,’ and make a season three a few years from now. Then maybe we would make another one when we were, like, 60 years old. We talk about that, about creating a new season of ‘Master of None’ when we’re 70 and all the things we think about when we are 70.
I need to live my life a little bit, maybe get in a serious relationship, have a kid, something, and then maybe figure it out.”
Both the first and second season of the show scored a 91/100 on Metacritic, making it the sixth most acclaimed season launch of the year so far behind only “The Leftovers,” “Planet Earth II,” “Catastrophe,” “The Americans” and “The Handmaid’s Tale”.
