Last year’s Master of None series on Netflix was an interesting little experiment. While most shows tend to be either character or plot-driven, Master of None was more driven by its theme and message than by anything else. In a strange way, each episode could be compared to an essay. Each episode tends to lay out their thesis in the cold open before delving into the evidence in analysis, which is the meat and potatoes of the show. Quite often, a scene may consist of characters literally discussing the thesis topic for minutes at a time.
In Season 1 of Master of None, Aziz Ansari’s Dev explored many topics such as the portrayal of Indians in movies, the different ways women are treated in life, and the importance of parents to their children. The style is as indie and millennial as it can get, and quite often, the acting style is stiff and stilted, but that’s almost by design. It was such a fresh breath of air that we couldn’t wait to see what the future held for the series.
Netflix has now released a brand new trailer of the upcoming season. Check it out below:
The synopsis for Season 2 of Master of None is below:
“After traveling abroad, Dev (Aziz Ansari) returns to New York to take on challenges in his personal and family life, a new career opportunity, and a complex, developing relationship with someone very meaningful to him.”
As you can see, the brand new footage is gorgeous, full of vibrant colors and unique experiences that Dev is set to have in this season. While it’s likely to to once again be set in New York, based on the footage and description, it looks like we'll be seeing some of Dev's time abroad as well, which is sure to expand his horizons and give them plenty of content to mine from. We can’t wait to see what Dev will learn later this year.
Master of None Season 2 hits Netflix on May 12, 2017.
