Season 3 of Never Have I Ever is underway. Netflix announced on Thursday that it has revamped Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher’s comedy drama series for a third season, just over a month since season two premiered. All of Never Have I Ever’s main cast members – Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, Poorna Jagannathan, Richa Moorjani, Jaren Lewison, Darren Barnet, Lee Rodriguez and Ramona Young – will return, alongside tennis legend and series narrator John McEnroe. Fisher served as showrunner in season 2, though it’s not immediately clear whether she will continue in that role in season 3.
“We are so grateful to Netflix and Universal Television for allowing us to continue to tell this story, and to fans around the world clamoring to see more of this misbehaving Indian teenager,” said the creators of Never Have I Ever, Kaling and Fisher, in a joint statement prepared on Thursday. Kaling and Fisher are also executive producers alongside Howard Klein and David Miner of 3 Arts Entertainment, Tristram Shapeero and Abdullahi Yakasai. Never Have I Ever is a production by Universal Television, 3 Arts Entertainment, Original Langster and Kaling International.
Season two of Never Have I Ever followed Tamil-American teenager Devi Vishwakumar (Ramakrishnan) as she struggled to choose between two love interests Paxton (Darren Barnet) and Ben (Jaren Lewison) – and ended up deciding to date them both. The challenges and problems associated with this, in addition to competing with fellow Indian Aneesa (Megan Suri) in Sherman Oaks, were the cornerstone of the season. Season 2 of Never Have I Ever was widely received by critics; it has 93 percent “recent” rating and 80 “generally favorable” rating, respectively, on the Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic rating aggregators.
The first two seasons of Never Have I Ever are available on Netflix. Season three will likely air in 2022.
