Why has season 3 of Master of None taken so long?
For years, a third season wasn’t in the air as the show went on an extended hiatus after season 2 released in May 2017.
In an extended interview with Vulture back in 2017, the topic of a third season was discussed although Aziz pretty much stated that it’ll be a while before he decides whether to go ahead with the third season.
In the interview, Aziz states: “I don’t know if we’re going to do a season three. I wouldn’t be surprised if I needed a looonng break before I could come back to it.” adding “I’ve got to become a different guy before I write a third season, is my personal thought,” and “I’ve got to get married or have a kid or something. I don’t have anything else to say about being a young guy being single in New York eating food around town all the time.”
Since the second season released, Aziz Ansari has faced personal hardship with a sexual misconduct allegation. His last project with Netflix was in 2019 with the stand-up special, Aziz Ansari: Right Now.
Now, four years later we’re finally getting a chance to check back in with Dev. If you need a quick catchup, the end of season 2 saw Dev and Francesca on the verge of breaking up after a row and her discarding her engagement ring.
