Netflix has renewed animated adult comedy Bojack Horseman for Season 3 and set premiere dates for several series, including Longmire and Aziz Ansari’s comedy, which now has a title, Master Of None.

Aziz Ansari’s Master Of None premieres Friday, November 6 in all territories where Netflix is available. Based on the comedic viewpoints of Ansari, the show follows the personal and professional lives of Dev (Ansari), a 30-year-old actor in New York who has trouble deciding what he wants to eat, much less the pathway for the rest of his life.
