Netflix has released the trailer for the third season of Master of None, “Moments in Love” starring Lena Waithe and Naomi Ackie.
Waithe, who won an Emmy for writing a Season 2 episode based on her own coming out experience, takes over as the star of the new season from series co-creator Aziz Ansari, who anchored the first two seasons.
The End of the F***ing World star Naomi Ackie joins as Waithe’s on-screen partner.
The new season is described as “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.”
In 2018, Ansari was accused of sexual misconduct by a woman who had been on a date with the actor and described him as acting overly aggressive and said the experience left her feeling “violated” and “taken advantage” of.
Ansari defended himself in a statement, writing, “I met a woman at a party. We exchanged numbers. We texted back and forth and eventually went on a date. We went out to dinner, and afterwards we ended up engaging in sexual activity, which by all indications was completely consensual.”
Sunday May 23 on Netflix.
