Netflix had a teen show monopoly a few years ago, but it wasn’t until 2020 that “Never Have I Ever,” which was both amusing and emotionally poignant, came close to nailing the genre. In the coming-of-age series produced by Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher, Maitreyi Ramakrishnan stars as Devi Vishwakumar, a first-generation Indian-American high school student growing up in Sherman Oaks, California.
Devi’s first season follows her as she deals with the death of her father (Sendhil Ramamurthy) while also trying to find a boyfriend. Netflix will broadcast the highly anticipated 10-episode second season of “Never Have I Ever,” which will contain more family drama and puzzling high school romances, on July 15, a little more than a year after its launch. Devi will be split between two young men, smart and studious Ben (Jaren Lewison) and athletic and popular Paxton, as she tries to come to terms with her mother (Darren Barnet).
We’ve started gathering information on what to expect from a potential third season of the Netflix series “Never Have I Ever.” Fans of the Netflix series “Never Have I Ever” are already eager to find out what happens next. So far, Season 3 of “Never Have I Ever” has provided a wealth of knowledge.
When is the third season of Never Have I Ever coming out?
While Netflix has yet to renew “Never Have I Ever” for the third season, Devi, her family, and friends appear to be returning for more high school drama and perplexing family dynamics. When will the news be made public, as well as new episodes?
Netflix makes its decisions about a month before the premiere of a show. Season 1 premiered on April 27, 2020, yet the show wasn’t publicly renewed until July 1, 2020, therefore it took a few months for Netflix to announce the renewal of “Never Have I Ever.” So, based on what we know so far, we should expect to learn something about Season 3’s destiny in one to two months, possibly as early as mid-September. It’s possible it’ll happen sooner, but we’ll know more by October.
Season 3 will most likely premiere in a year or so if the show is officially renewed. New episodes of “Never Have I Ever” could debut as soon as next fall, depending on the sequencing of events. However, we wouldn’t be surprised if Netflix rushes things to get a second summer release out the door.
In Season 3 of Never Have I Ever, who will make an appearance?
If “Never Have I Ever” is picked up by Netflix, all of the characters from Season 2 will almost certainly return for Season 3. Maitreyi Ramakrishnan will reprise her role as Devi Vishwakumar, a high school student, while tennis legend John McEnroe will return as the series narrator. Poorna Jagannathan, who portrays Devi’s mother Nalini, and Richa Moorjani, who plays Devi’s cousin Kamala, are set to reprise their roles. It’s only logical that Ranjita Chakravarty, who was initially featured on the show as Devi’s grandmother in Season 2, would return.
Devi’s best friends Eleanor Wong and Fabiola Torres, played by Ramona Young and Lee Rodriguez in high school, should reprise their roles. Darren Barnet will portray Paxton Hall-Yoshida, and Jaren Lewison will portray Ben Gross.
Never Have I Ever’s the third season follows the same plot as the first two.
Because the second season of “Never Have I Ever” has yet to premiere on Netflix, predicting what will happen in a potential third season is difficult.
At the end of Season 1, Devi’s heart was torn between Paxton, the boy she thought was the one, and Ben, an old nemesis with whom she shared a kiss in the season’s last moments.
Devi is likely to continue navigating the muddy seas of high school relationships during Season 2 and, depending on how the events of those episodes play out, become more confident (or possibly more perplexed) about her dating choices in a probable Season 3.
Devi’s circle of friends and family members must also be taken into account. Devi and her mother had a rough relationship in Season 1, especially after her father died, but by the end of the season, Devi had grown to respect and accept her mother’s opinions and perspective. Season 2 will undoubtedly explore Devi’s relationships with her mother, cousin Kamala, and best friends Eleanor and Fabiola. The trio had many ups and downs in Season 1, but they should remain as close as ever in Season 2 and beyond.
After Season 2 of “Never Have I Ever” is released on Netflix, we’ll know a lot more about the third portion.
