Netflix Wants to Make More 'Master of None' with Aziz Ansari
Published Jul 30, 2018Netflix has shared support for Aziz Ansari and his show Master of None, despite accusations of sexual misconduct against the actor earlier this year.
A programming executive for the streaming service, Cindy Holland, said that a third season of Ansari's show is still on the table.
She spoke at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour yesterday (July 29) in Beverly Hills.
Holland said that Netflix would "certainly be happy" to make and release another season of the show, though no production schedule or release date has been confirmed.
The second season of Master of None became available on the streaming service last year.
It's not Netflix's only original show that has caused controversy as of late.
Jeffrey Tambor, star of Netflix's Arrested Development, was fired from Amazon's Transparent over sexual misconduct allegations, but appeared in the recent fifth season of Arrested Development. In the lead-up to the latest season's release, co-star Jessica Walter revealed that Tambor has verbally harassed her on set; the rest of the male cast didn't respond well.
Kevin Spacey was also notoriously axed from Netflix's House of Cards in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations. A shortened sixth season is expected out later this year, though an official release date has not yet been announced.
