Aziz Ansari’s first foray into scripted comedy, Master of None, really seemed to strike a chord with a lot of people in its first season, so it’s unsurprising that Netflix has renewed it for a second.
The bad news is you’ll have to wait a little while for it, as Aziz confirmed on Twitter today the new episodes won’t be arriving until 2017.
“Master of None Season 2 coming 2017,” he tweeted. “Thanks for all the support everyone!!"
Aziz and co-creator Alan Yang last month explained why the second season would take a little longer.
"We're figuring it out; I need some time to refill my head," Ansari said. "We have a bunch of ideas bouncing around in our heads - it's a little early to say anything."
Yang added: “We really put a lot of aspects of our life into this show, and that's part of the reason we don't want to rush into season two."
A lot of the themes in the first season were anecdotes from Ansari’s stand-up shows exploded into plot kernels, so it will be interesting to see whether he draws on these again or comes up with new set-ups.
You can expect a hell of a lot of original content from Netflix this year, with the streaming service ploughing $6 billion into it.
