'Master of None' Season 3: Air time, how to live stream, plot, cast, and what to expect from the Netflix show
Netflix put Season 3 of the show on the backburner after sexual misconduct allegations were leveled against Aziz Ansari. 'Master of None' is back after 4 years and here's what one should expect from it.
Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang's popular dramedy series 'Master of None' is finally back on Netflix this May. One of Netflix's most popular series first released in 2015 and came back for its sophomore run in 2017. In 2018, Aziz Ansari was hit with sexual misconduct allegations and at first, it was believed that Netflix held off the announcement of the third season to avoid repercussions.
But it all proved to be wrong when the streaming giant announced a stand-up special - Aziz Ansari's 'Right Now' and it was received well amongst audiences. But there was still no word about 'Master of None' until April 2021 and even though the show was still listed as TBD, fans were very excited that the long-awaited show was finally making a comeback. A few days later, the first look trailer of the show that was coming back with the new name 'Master of None Presents: Moments in Love' was released. Here's what you can expect from the show.
'Master of None' will release on Netflix on Sunday, May 23. Season 1 and Season 2 had 10 episodes each but Season 3 will only have 5 episodes all of which will be available to stream when the show drops.
Air time and how to live stream?

The first two seasons were focused on Aziz Ansari's character Dev Shah as he tried to "jump-start his acting career and elevate his dating game with help from his eclectic group of friends in this award-winning series." Season 3 will follow Dev's friend Denise (played by Emmy-winning actor Lena Waithe) and her partner Alicia (played by BAFTA winner Naomi Ackie) as they grapple with doubts and heartache when a rift emerges in their happy marriage.
"This new 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," Netflix's press release read.

She created history at the 2017 Emmy Awards after winning the award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series becoming the first Black woman to do so. The 'Thanksgiving' episode which she won an Emmy for was partially based on her personal experience of coming out to her mother. Waithe is rumored to be dating Cynthia Erivo.
