Aziz Ansari‘s “Master of None” has been renewed by Netflix for a second season. The show will return to the streaming platform in 2017.
The ex-“Parks and Recreation” actor teased a sophomore run last month during the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, but nothing was made official until today.
“We’re figuring it out,” he said on Jan. 17. “I definitely need some time to refill my head. The first season was so personal. I just want to make sure that whatever we do for Season 2 lives up to what we made in the first season. I had such a great experience so we’d love to do it, we’re figuring it out.”
Here’s Aziz’s Thursday tweet announcing the good news, along with a little teaser:

Ansari was recently nominated for a Golden Globe in Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Comedy or Musical category. He lost to the only “Musical” option, Gael Garcia Bernal in “Mozart in the Jungle.”
“Master of None” won Best Comedy Series at the 2016 Critics Choice Television Awards.
