Master of None: Season 3 in the midst of sexual harassment allegations?

Master of None

The comedy series, Master of None, streaming on Netflix, features Aziz Ansari as Dev in the lead role. He is a 30 years old blasé fellow who works as a commercial actor in New York City. Most of his time is spent as he is chilling with his friends, and in that, during that time many funny and consequential events happen. The idea for this series was based on Aziz Ansari’s own life story and moments and he scripted and directed the show as well. The previous seasons of the show were able to clinch awards at the Emmys and Golden Globes, yet its standing as a renewal is not decided yet.

The opening season of the show came out in 2015. The show was critically commended and won an Emmy as well, it had a second season that was shot in Italy, in which the lead of the series Dev, came across a new love interest.

Allegations on the set of Master of None

Following the feat of the second season, Ansari was met with #MeToo accusations from a woman who said that the actor “pressured” her into an uncomfortable circumstance. Even though he talked about the accusations and expressed regret to her in person, some people don’t think it’s adequate.

Aziz Ansari has remained in the Hollywood spotlight after the allegations were made. In January 2018, a website Babe.net published an article where a woman elaborated on an uncomfortable and perhaps sexually-scheming circumstance she underwent with Ansari while being on a date with the latter.

Ansari responded to the allegations, “I took her words to heart and responded privately after taking the time to process what she had said. I continue to support the movement that is happening in our culture. It is necessary and long overdue.”

After the response, Ansari didn’t partake in any interviews or come out in the public for many months, making many fans think about the uncertain allegations and what would it signify for the upcoming season of Master of None.

Netflix’s plans for Master of None Season 3

Netflix’s in charge of unique content Cindy Holland stated that the streaming service wouldn’t mind doing another season. Holland stated that she hasn’t discussed this with Ansari as to whether he’d in interested in doing a third season, but she corroborated Netflix’s viewpoint on the same.

“We certainly would be happy to make another season of Master of None with Aziz,” she said to the press.
