Watch the trailer for “Master of None” Season 3 above.

Ansari, co-creator of the series with “Tigertail” director Alan Yang, co-wrote the new season with Waithe and directed all episodes.

The new season, set to premiere May 23, marks the first return of the series since Season 2 premiered on Netflix in 2017. Ansari warned at the time that there would be a lengthy break before future seasons, telling Vulture that he would have to “get married or have a kid or something” before diving back into the character of Dev. “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.”

Following the second season and its rapturous reception from critics and awards bodies, Ansari briefly dropped out of the spotlight after being accused of sexual misconduct in 2018. He returned a year later for a stand-up tour and Spike Jonze-directed Netflix special in which he addressed the allegations.

“I’ve felt so many things in the last year,” he said in the special. “There’s times I felt scared, there’s times I felt humiliated, there’s times I felt embarrassed, and ultimately, I just felt terrible that this person felt this way.”
