Never Have I Ever was the surprise hit of 2020. Just when people wondered if Netflix needed another teen show, bam they hit it out of the park with a really great coming-of-age show filled with a lot of heart and a great soundtrack.
The show, created by Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher, centers on Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan), an Indian American teenager growing up in southern California, and is loosely based on some of Kaling’s own upbringing.
Devi is a layered and complex character who is dealing with her grief over the death of her father, figuring out how her Indian culture fits into her life, and going through all the things that come with being a teenager, like sex and friendships and fighting with the authority figures in your life.
As soon as we finished watching Never Have I Ever we knew we need a season 2 in our lives.
So, what is happening with Never Have I Ever? Here’s everything we know so far…
A second season is definitly happening
We weren’t the only ones who loved Never Have I Ever and Netflix moved quickly to annouce that a season 2 was definitly happening back in July 2020. Yay!
That’s the good news. The bad news is…
COVID might delay season 2 of Never Have I Ever...
Yep, just like a lot of other TV shows and movies, COVID-19 has delayed the production of season 2 of Never Have I Ever.
Speaking to Elle, Maitreyi Ramakrishnan said:
Honestly, I’m in the same boat as the fans. I don’t know what’s going to happen at all. I just know for me and of course the rest of the cast and the crew of Never Have I Ever, we all want to make sure that when we do start filming again for season 2, we’re doing it safely and responsibly rather than just rushing into it. We obviously want to make the best product that we can for season 2. But we also want to make sure that our actual crew and cast are all safe.
