“Master of None,” Netflix’s slice-of-life, Emmy Award-winning comedy starring Aziz Ansari, is getting ready to come back for season two.
Ansari, who co-created the show and serves as one of its executive producers, announced on his Instagram and Twitter that it’ll be coming back to the streaming service on Friday, May 12.
At the end of season one, Ansari’s character, Dev, decides to travel abroad to Italy to learn how to cook pasta after failing as an actor. The new episodes pick up as Dev returns to New York after the experience.
In the teaser, released by Netflix on Wednesday, Dev is seen riding on vespas with his friend Arnold (Eric Wareheim) through what we can assume is the Italian countryside.
Dev will experience a number of challenges in his return, including a new career opportunity and a “complex, developing relationship with someone very meaningful to him,” according to a Netflix press release.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter last July, co-showrunner Alan Yang teased that at least part of the second season would take place in Italy. Yang also said that Ansari’s on and offscreen parents, Shoukath Ansari and Fatima Ansari, will return.
In January, Ansari told press that the writers wanted to go through more life experiences before cracking into season two, since the first season was so personal.
Watch the teaser above.
