Aziz Ansari will continue being the “Master” of his Netflix domain.

Ansari announced via Twitter on Thursday that his series “Master of None,” which he stars in and co-created with “Parks and Recreation” writer Alan Yang, has been picked up for a second season.

The second season will air in 2017, he writes.

The 10-episode first season of “Master of None” drew almost universally positive reviews. Netflix doesn’t release viewing data, but it obviously did well enough to earn more episodes.

The show also stars Noel Wells, Lena Waithe, Eric Wareheim (who also directed several episodes) and Ansari’s real-life parents, Shoukath and Fatima.

“Master of None” joins these shows that have been renewed for 2016-17 and beyond.
