We have good news, and we have bad news.
The bad news is that FXX has officially canceled the comedy series Man Seeking Woman after three seasons after the ratings just weren’t strong enough to support another season of the series.

Last year Netflix doubled the amount of original programming that they put out in 2015, and it seems like this year they’re going to have even more as they move towards having a library where 50% of their content is original. That includes a slew of new shows and movies, but it also means the return of some Netflix favorites, and one of them has just announced a return date.
Master of None marked comedian Aziz Ansari‘s first solo outing in the world of comedy serials, and his work as a creator, writer, director, executive producer and star resulted in four Emmy nominations (including Outstanding Comedy Series) and one win for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series. Therefore it should come as no surprise that the show is coming back for a second season, and Netflix has just announced when we’ll get new episodes, along with a tease of what’s to come.
Watch the Master of None season 2 release date teaser below, but beware that we’ll dive into spoilers from the first season below the video. Read More »

That’s part of the fun, right? But while we’re at it, it’s worth pointing out a few things they got right, too, even if — as in the case of The Americans — it took ’em a while. Below, let’s look over some of 2016 Emmy snubs and surprises. Read More »

Netflix has the habit of renewing their shows as fast as possible, announcing new seasons the Monday after a new batch of episodes has dropped. In the case of House of Cards, they renewed their flagship series for a fifth season weeks before season four dropped. Since Netflix is in the business of you watching their original content as fast as possible, they have developed the habit of letting everyone know as soon as possible that yes, there will soon be new episodes for you to binge.
So it’s a little weird that it took this long Master of None season 2 to officially get put in the pipeline, which makes you wonder if series star, co-creator, and occasional writer/director Aziz Ansari deliberately pushed pause to recharge his batteries. In any case, Ansari has revealed that a new season will arrive in 2017, which is excellent news for anyone who likes good things.

Aziz Ansari has a new comedy series coming to Netflix and it looks like a great, hilarious look at life in the year 2015. And, perhaps more importantly, Master of None is giving the always funny Parks and Recreation veteran a new platform from which he can brutally honest about the topics that he’s obviously passionate about. Like the state of race and Hollywood and that time he turned down a role in Transformers because of some general racial ickiness associated with the part.
You can read the Aziz Ansari Transformers story (as well as some of his other insightful, sad comments) after the jump.
