The second season of Master of None, the acclaimed Netflix series from Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang, will premiere in April 2017, Ansari announced today on Twitter.

Ansari added that he and his cohorts are currently writing season 2. He announced in February that Netflix had renewed the series for a second season that would arrive in 2017.

Master of None's 10-episode first season debuted in November on Netflix to effusive praise. The series follows the life of Dev Shah (Ansari), a 30-year-old actor living in New York City, as he tries to grow his career while navigating the challenges of 21st-century dating. In our review of the full season, we said the series "serves as a brilliant argument in favor of making films and TV shows more diverse."

We've reached out to Netflix for more details, and will update this article with any information we receive.

Update (May 31): Ansari may have jumped the gun — a Netflix representative sent Polygon the following statement yesterday regarding his announcement of an April 2017 release window for Master of None's second season: "That timing is not confirmed at this time."
