[image-1]Columbia, S.C., native and perhaps Kayne West’s favorite comedian Aziz Ansari announced this week that the second season of his wildly successful Netflix series Master of None will soon be back for all your viewing pleasure.

The dapper comedian took to Twitter Wednesday to drop a brief — very brief — teaser for the new season, which will begin streaming on May 12. Created by Ansari and Alan Yang, Master of None was nominated for four Primetime Emmy Awards in its first season, taking home the honors for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series.

Premiering in the fall of 2015, Ansari explained the lengthy gap between the first and second seasons to The Hollywood Reporter, saying, “The show was so personalized, we dumped our heads into this, we just needed to be people and live our actual life. This show isn’t the type of show where we’re going to be able to just turn around and turn it in right away. We covered so much stuff in season one and wanted to make sure the ideas we had in season two were equally interesting and the episodes were just as ambitious.”

The short teaser for the new season gives away little in terms of what viewers can expect, but at least we can rest assured that there will be Vespas and vistas galore. While fans await the season premiere, let’s take a quick look back at one of the highlights of season 1.
