This weekend at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, Netflix VP Cindy Holland was asked about one of of the shows on the company’s roster, and if it had considered the sensitivity with which it might handle its potential return. Holland was surprisingly direct in her reply:

“We certainly have given some thought to it. We would be happy to make another season of Master of None when Aziz is ready.”


The need for sensitivity results from a report that first appeared on Babe.net, alleging sexual misconduct on the Ansari’s part. He later responded in a statement that he believed the encounter to be completely consensual, adding: “It was true that everything did seem okay to me, so when I heard that it was not the case for her, I was surprised and concerned. I took her words to heart and responded privately after taking the time to process what she had said.”

The same reporter followed up with a question about an unscripted kiss on the set of Stranger Things, first mentioned in an episode of Beyond Stranger Things. Holland said that it’s the “first priority” of Netflix to ensure that every set “is safe and happy and healthy for everybody involved,” adding that heightened awareness around issues of harassment, assault, and misconduct have “created more heightened awareness around any potential issues that might happen on set.”
