Aziz Ansari might be making a return to Netflix for a third season of “Master of None.” There were doubts about the continuation of the project following the comedian’s sexual assault scandal. When the head of original content, Cindy Holland, was asked if it were possible for Netflix to have the show back on deck, she responded in the affirmative.
The sentiment she expressed during the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour can be summarized with the following quote.
“We certainly have given some thought to it. We certainly would be happy to make another season of Master of None with Aziz.”
This news comes after the precedent of modifying or cancelling shows due to how particular moral scandals could compromise the integrity of productions. For example, House Of Cards, which is another Netflix Originals series, released their lead actor, Kevin Spacey, after many allegations were made against him concerning sexual misconduct and racist behaviour.
Aziz Ansari was met with a similar situation when a piece was published online detailing a woman’s claims of being sexually mistreated by him during a date they had planned. Ansari responded to the allegations by saying he was “surprised and concerned” by the 23-year-old’s testimony.
