- The third installment of the coming-of-age series starring Maitreyi Ramakrishnan will launch this summer.
Mindy Kaling’s Netflix coming-of-age comedy-drama “Never Have I Ever” has been renewed for a fourth and final season. The series created by Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher centers on the complicated life of Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan), a modern-day first-generation Indian American teenage girl. She’s an overachieving high school sophomore with a short fuse that gets her into difficult situations.
Season 3, which just wrapped production, will launch this summer, “and the streamer has handed the comedy an early renewal to end the story,” reported Deadline. “Production on Season 4, which will launch in 2023, is expected to kick off in the coming months.”
The third season of the hit series will include Indian American actor and producer Anirudh “Andy” Pisharody along with the regulars Poorna Jagannathan, Richa Moorjani, Jaren Lewison, Darren Barnet, Lee Rodriguez and Ramona Young. Pisharody will play Des, “an Indian American teen who’s as smart as Devi but goes to an elite private school,” according to a Deadline report.
Season two of “Never Have I Ever,” which premiered on July 15, saw Devi continuing to deal with the everyday pressures of high school and drama at home, while also navigating new romantic relationships.
Joining the cast was actress Meghan Suri, who played Aneesa, a new Indian student at Sherman Oaks High. Also seen was Utkarsh Ambudkar in a recurring role as Mr. Kulkarni, “the coolest teacher on staff at Sherman Oaks High,” who teaches English and is buddies with Devi.
Entertainment Tonight has speculated that the third installment of the series will delve deeper into Devi and Paxton’s “blossoming teen romance.” Co-creator Lang Fisher told ET that the next season would discuss “sex and what do you do if you’re a nerd who’s done very little and you’re dating a much more experienced guy.”
