Since the highly-publicized news of sexual misconduct allegations against Aziz Anzari spread, the actor and comedian has largely stayed away from the public eye.
The shocking story came in January of this year when an anonymous woman detailed a negative encounter she had with Anzari, where their relations were non-consensual. The comedian said he was “surprised and concerned” to hear of the allegations.
In May, Anzari returned to the stage to continue performing stand-up, however, he has remained absent from social media and public discourse regarding the accusations.
For the first time, Netflix is coming out to say working with Ansari in the future is a definite possibility.
At the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour in Beverly Hills, programming executive Cindy Holland was asked if the third season of Ansari's 'Master of None' will be in production. “We certainly have given some thought to it,” Holland said, according to NME. She continued to assert that, “We certainly would be happy to make another season of Master of None with Aziz.”
While audiences are still debating whether or not Ansari should be allowed back into the hearts of Netflix entertainment, it is clear that the streaming platform is ready to forgive and forget.
