Here's a breakdown of all the cast and characters to look out for in this trending Netflix comedy.

The second season of Master of None dropped on Friday (May 12), and as expected, the Netflix comedy about Dev's (Aziz Ansari) millennial experience of living in New York City, has caught fire.

This season is all about love and personal discovery in context of identity, religion and race. This season also stars a handful of Black women who shined in their own unique way, pushing the message of inclusion through storytelling.

For those of you who haven't watched, no worries, we don't give away spoilers here. But check out these phenomenal women and the roles they play, below:

Lena Waithe

Not only is this 32-year-old a producer on Dear White People, she stars as one of Dev's best friends on Master of None. This season dedicates one episode (No. 8) —directed by Melina Matsoukas— to her coming-out story that was beautifully written by Waithe and Ansari. The insane bonus: Angela Bassett as her loving mother and Kym Whitley as her round-the-way auntie.

Condola Rashad

This Broadway star was on the first season of Master of None as one of Dev's actor friends, and she's back again, in a different capacity. Without giving away too much away, the daughter of icon Phylicia Rashad accurately shows the struggle on phone-app dating.

Ilfenesh Hadera

You should get used to Hadera's gorgeous face, as the actress is in Baywatch and She's Gotta Have It (Netflix series) both dropping this year. She plays a makeup artist on the set of Dev's show, but makes an impact by highlighting an important issue in Hollywood. 

Clare-Hope Ashitey

There's something about a British accent... and this beauty draws us in with her role in the comedy. The 30-year-old can also be found in Shots Fired playing Tristan Mack Wild's wife. 

Danielle Brooks

We had a 'hey-girl-hey' moment when Brooks hit the screen, because of her fellow Netflix original series Orange is the New Black. In Master of None she plays Dev's fiery agent. Per usual, Brooks is hilarious and a class act at the same time.

Treshelle Edmond

One of the most talked about episodes in season two stars Edmond who steals the show. Her performance shows a different side of the Big Apple that is home to so many different stories.
