'Master Of None' Season 3 Trailer Puts Lena Waithe And Naomi Ackie In The Spotlight

After revealing that the new season would drop in May, Netflix has dropped the trailer for the third season of Master of None. 

The season’s official description: The Emmy Award-winning MASTER OF NONE returns with a new season that chronicles the relationship of Denise (Emmy Award winner Lena Waithe) and her partner Alicia (BAFTA winner Naomi Ackie). Directed by series co-creator and Emmy winner Aziz Ansari, and scripted by Ansari and Waithe, this new season is a modern love story that intimately illustrates the ups and downs of marriage, struggles with fertility, and personal growth both together and apart. Fleeting romantic highs meet crushing personal losses while existential questions of love and living are raised.

The five episodes, directed by Ansari, were shot on film. The season was co-written by Aziz Ansari & Lena Waithe. Executive producers for the season are Aziz Ansari, Alan Yang, Lena Waithe, Naomi Ackie, Michael Schur, Dave Becky, David Miner, Igor Srubshchik and Aniz Ansari. It was co-executive produced by Cord Jefferson and Eric Wareheim.

The first season of the show premiered in 2015 and the second one dropped in 2017. However, no word about season 3 came after a sexual misconduct accusation levied against Ansari. The show has been off the air for four years. As IndieWire reports, “A woman with the pseudonym Grace accused the comedian of being overly aggressive with her on a date, telling The Atlantic that she felt Ansari ‘violated’ her, adding, ‘That that whole experience was actually horrible.’ Ansari defended himself against the accusations, releasing a statement that read: “In September of last year, I met a woman at a party. We exchanged numbers. We texted back and forth and eventually went on a date. We went out to dinner, and afterwards we ended up engaging in sexual activity, which by all indications was completely consensual.”

Waithe became the first black woman to win the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series in 2017 for writing the “Thanksgiving” episode of the show.

Master of None is a Universal Television production.
