Master of None Season 3 and Special Season 2 Revealed

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 five-episode 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.
Co-created by Ansari and Emmy Award winner Alan Yang, Master of None Season 3 delivers an evolution of the series that remains tethered to previous seasons while breaking new storytelling ground of its own.

The executive producers are Aziz Ansari, Alan Yang, Lena Waithe, Naomi Ackie, Michael Schur, Dave Becky, David Miner, and Igor Srubshchik. The co-executive producers are Cord Jefferson and Eric Wareheim.

Special Season 2 comes from the heart and mind of Ryan O’Connell. In the second season, Ryan really needs to get his sh*t together. It’s been two months and he still hasn’t spoken to Karen since their fight and he has a gnarly case of writer’s block that’s getting him in hot water with Olivia.

Enter Tanner, a fun, flirty dance instructor who charms Ryan despite not being totally available. When his writer’s block eventually lifts, he’s inspired to write a longform piece about disability.

From there, he begins a journey of self-discovery that creates unexpected complications in his relationship with Tanner. Meanwhile, Kim lets her guard down when she meets Harrison, a sensitive tech mogul with a humble background – but her insecurities and jealous tendencies continue to hamper her personal life and threaten to push Harrison away.

With her spiraling credit card debt driving Kim even further towards rock bottom, she makes a hard choice to regain control of her finances and personal life. Since taking care of Ryan was her life’s purpose until their fight, Karen realizes that she needs to take an active approach to create a fulfilling life for herself – beyond just taking care of her ailing mother.

Will she be content with continuing to clean up everyone else’s messes, or will Karen be able to lean into her newfound independence and create a life that centers around her own desires for once? This season is about our primary characters — Ryan, Karen and Kim — coming into their power and realizing they all deserve big gorgeous lives – whether society agrees or not, bitch!

Ryan O’Connell is the creator, executive Producer and writer. Ryan O’Connell, Jessica Hecht, Punam Patel return as series regulars. Jim Parsons, Eric Norsoph and Todd Spiewak serve as executive producers for That’s Wonderful Productions, while Anna Dokoza is also an executive producer.
