Aziz Ansari's 'Master Of None' Is Getting A Second Season!
Tiny human/lol factory Aziz Ansari proved he's got what it takes to make great TV with Netflix Originals' Master of None. Thank gawd that the powers that be are blessing us with a second season — slated for release on Netflix in 2017 — meaning we'll get to see all our friends back on the small screen real soon. ("Not soon enough, though" we protest in Tom Haverford's whiney voice).

Despite heaps of "millennial" references/dramas, including the politics of texting and having too many taco options on offer, the show has a timelesness that puts it in the ranks of other premo NYC-centric shows like Seinfeld and Louie. It's topical, funny and heart-warming. And we are hooked.
Here are just some of the reasons we'll definitely be tuning in to the second season of a show that has already made us laugh, cry and spend unreasonably long amounts of time on the couch cradling various snacks.
Aziz cast his real mum and dad as his parents on the show. And, as if that wasn't cute enough, he then quoted his dad on Facebook as saying, "This is all fun and I liked acting in the show, but I really just did it so I could spend more time with you." Making us a) tear up a little, and b) swear to call our own parents more often.
His excellent casting choices didn't stop there. He called up his big bud, for some v memorable times.
And Lena Waithe, who is legit so bomb.
Together they lived out all our street vigilante dreams.
Busta Rhymes' cameo. Legit brilliant.
Aziz just gets desserts. And therefore, gets us too.
The show continually put Hollywood racism on absolute blast.
And perfectly, and hilariously, captured the immigrant narrative.
