Never Have I Ever Season 3 is a go. Netflix announced Thursday that it had renewed Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher’s coming-of-age comedy-drama series for a third season, a little over a month since the second season premiered. All of the leading characters in Never Have I Ever – Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, Poorna Jagannathan, Richa Moorjani, Jaren Lewison, Darren Barnet, Lee Rodriguez and Ramona Young – will return along with tennis legend and series narrator John McEnroe. Fisher served as the showrunner in season 2, although it is not immediately clear whether she will continue that role in season 3.
“We’re so grateful to Netflix and Universal Television for letting us keep this story telling us, and to fans around the world who were loudly eager to see more of this ill-behaved Indian teenager,” said the creators of Never Have I Ever, Kaling and Fisher in a joint prepared statement Thursday. Kaling and Fisher are 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.
The second season of Never Have I Ever followed Indian-American Tamil teen Devi Vishwakumar (Ramakrishnan) when she found it difficult to choose between two love interests, Paxton (Darren Barnet) and Ben (Jaren Lewison) – and finally decided to going out with both of them. The associated challenges and problems as well as the competition with the Indian fellow student Aneesa (Megan Suri) in Sherman Oaks were the foundation of the season. Never Have I Ever Season 2 was largely well received by critics; it has a rating of 93 percent “fresh” or 80 “generally cheap” from the review aggregators Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic.
The first two seasons of Never Have I Ever are available on Netflix. Season 3 is expected to air in 2022.
