Netflix Wants Aziz Ansari Back
According to Netflix, Aziz Ansari is deeply missed by the streaming giant, which said it “would be happy” to make another season of the comedian’s award-winning show Master of None, if he’s willing.
Programming executive Cindy Holland confirmed they would during the Television Critics Association’s press tour this weekend.
The comedian was accused of sexual misconduct and has since been laying low for several months. As Page Six reports, an anonymous woman came forward in January and claimed that the actor had forced himself on her following a date they had in New York — dubbing it “the worst night of [her] life.” She said that Ansari got physical with her, despite numerous “cues” that she “wasn’t interested.”
Netflix execs supposedly tried to get Aziz to come back for a third season, but he reportedly wasn’t interested.
