Where is Aziz Ansari?

Even Netflix seems to be asking the same question. The streaming-TV giant wants to continue his series Master of None but they seem to have no idea whether he wants the same.

On Sunday evening, Netflix head of original content Cindy Holland was asked if they wanted to continue with his show.

"We certainly have given some thought to it it," she said adding: "We certainly would be happy to make another season of 'Master of None' with Aziz."

The critically-acclaimed show put Aziz Ansari on the global map when it debuted in 2015.

But earlier this year, after a woman wrote that he behaved very inappropriately towards her on a date, he responded by saying he was "surprised and concerned" by what he heard.

Then he went extremely quiet.

In May he did some standup comedy in New York, but other than that... nothing. Missing in action.

Clearly Netflix has decided the incident was not enough to warrant cutting ties with him.

But Aziz Ansari himself seems to have decided the right thing to do, for now, is to lay low. He hasn't posted anything to his Facebook page since August 2017.
