master of none, netflix, season 1, season 2, aziz ansariMore Aziz Ansari is coming to Netflix: The streaming service has renewed the comedian's "Master of None" for a second season.

Ansari announced the news himself on Thursday, revealing the season two pickup on Twitter, and telling fans that the show would be back sometime in 2017. He also thanked his followers for supporting him and the series.

Season one of "Master of None" debuted to deafening critical praise back in November, and went on to secure a spot on many year-end best-of lists (including ours). Its popularity among both critics and fans made its renewal seem all but a certainty, though Netflix took its time making the news official.

According to Variety, Ansari had previously said that, regardless of a potential pickup timeline, he wanted to take a breather between seasons to "refill [his] head" with new story ideas. The first season of the show was largely inspired by the comedian's own life (his real-life parents even played his folks on the series), including his experiences as an Indian-American actor.

Stay tuned for a specific release date for "Master of None" season two. 2017 can't come soon enough.
