Aziz Ansari’s award-winning series Master of None is finally coming back after an unexpectedly long hiatus with Netflix confirming Master of None season 3 will release sometime in May 2021!
Earlier this year, rumors began swirling that a third season was on its way after production on the long-anticipated season was completed. In the time since, fans have been anxiously awaiting news from Netflix. While little is known about what the upcoming third season will hold there is one piece of information we can confirm: Master of None season 3 is coming to Netflix next month.
When announcing the slate of shows and movies coming in May 2021, Netflix surprised fans with its announcement that Master of None would return from its four-year hiatus with a new season coming in May 2021. It was a welcomed surprise for fans who have been waiting for new episodes ever since season 2 released on May 12, 2017!
Master of None season 3 release date
When announcing its May 2021 release slate, Netflix confirmed Master of None season 3 was among the handful of Netflix Originals set to drop during the month of May. Interestingly, though, Netflix did not confirm the season’s exact release date and instead simply teased that the season was coming soon:

It’s surprising to see Netflix tease the show’s return without any formal release date attached to the upcoming season, as fan buzz is already at an all-time high. So when exactly could the new season debut?
The “coming soon” teaser seems to indicate that Master of None season 3 won’t release in the first week of May, after all an early May release would likely require some promotion of the season by this point. Instead, it seems that season 3 will drop sometime around the middle of May at the earliest.
Master of None season 2 dropped on Friday, May 12 putting it roughly in the middle of the month so if Netflix takes a similar approach with season 3 it seems likely Master of None season 3 will drop Friday, May 14.
As soon as Netflix releases an official release date for Master of None season 3, we’ll be sure to let you know. In the meantime, we can at least get excited knowing season 3 finally(!) has a release date and will be coming sometime in May 2021!Next: 50 best Netflix shows to watch right now
