In Master of None, Ansari stars as Dev Shah, a 30-year-old Indian-American actor who became famous for a Go-Gurt commercial. In season two, he heads back to New York after visiting Italy to take culinary classes. The show is loosely based on Ansari’s own life experiences and was created with Alan Yang.
The rest of the main cast features former Saturday Night Live castmember Noel Wells as Rachel, Dev’s love interest, but she hasn’t been seen in any trailers for season two. Eric Wareheim plays Arnold, Dev’s best friend. Kelvin Yu plays Brian Cheng, another one of Dev’s friends who is the son of Taiwanese immigrants. Lena Waithe stars as Denise, another friend Dev bounces ideas off of. Singer John Legend also has a role in Season Two.
“Season one is about not knowing what you want. Season two is about wanting what you can’t have,” Ansari told Vogue in a recent interview. “We’ve always thought the show can be like real life: Sometimes certain people are in your life, and sometimes they’re not.”
The first season of Master of Noneearned near unanimous acclaim, especially the episode “Parents,” in which Dev and Brian meet their parents to talk about the sacrifices they made to live in America. Ansari’s real-life parents Shoukath and Fatima appear in the episode. “Parents” won the Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series. Ansari was also nominated for Lead Actor and the series was nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series. Ansari also earned a Golden Globe nomination.
