One of Netflix’s most successful comedies, Never Have I Ever is coming back for the third time around! The series—which follows Devi Vishwakumar, a first-generation Indian American teen girl as she navigates high school after a tragic loss—was renewed on August 19th, just one month after its sophomore season dropped on the streamer.
“We are so grateful to Netflix and Universal Television for letting us continue to tell this story, and to the fans around the world who clamored to see more of this badly behaved Indian teenager,” said the show's co-creators, Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher, in a joint statement.
Details have yet to be released about the potential plotlines for Never Have I Ever season 3, but if you already finished watching the latest season—spoilers ahead!—you know that season 2 ended with Devi going public with Paxton Hall-Yoshida, the hottest guy at school, at the winter dance. But then Eleanor told Ben that Devi actually was going to choose him earlier on in the season. Even more love-triangle drama will undoubtedly ensue.

Watch the Never Have I Ever season 2 trailer:
Released on Thursday, June 17th, the official trailer of Never Have I Ever season two sees Devi and gal pals Eleanor and Fabiola deciding whether she should be with Paxton or Ben. "When you're old and on your death bed, whose naked body do you want to be picturing?" Eleanor helpfully guides our teen heroine. She has a point!
But does Devi choose between Ben and Paxton or decide to just date them both before her mother moves her and the family to India? You'll have to watch season two to find out!
When did Never Have I Ever season 2 come out?

Who is in the cast of Never Have I Ever season 2?
Kaling's Instagram post also revealed that one high-profile actor was joining the cast in a recurring role: Actor-rapper Common. The Oscar winner portrays Dr. Chris Jackson, a smooth-talking dermatologist who works in the same building as Nalini (Poorna Jagannathan).
Of Nalini's potential new love interest, showrunner Lang Fisher tells Entertainment Weekly: "Similar to Devi and Ben's relationship, they sort of start out as competitors. He is a little flashier. He's a real L.A. dermatologist, with his own product line, he does a lot of cosmetic work, and his office looks like a spa, whereas Nalini thinks that's undignified for a medical office."
Joining Common as one of the show's new cast members, Megan Suri will be taking on the role of a new student at Sherman Oaks High, "whose confidence and radiance will pose an immediate threat to Devi." Her addition to the gang for season two was revealed on the official Never Have I Ever Twitter account.

Along with those newbies, Maitreyi Ramakrishnan will return to her role as Devi, along with Lee Rodriguez and Ramona Young as her besties Fabiola and Eleanor. Poorna Jagannathan will take back her role as Devi’s iconic mother, Nalini. Richa Moorjani will feature as Devi's stunning cousin Kamala, and as for Devi’s potential love interests, Darren Barnet and Jaren Lewison will both return as Paxton and Ben.
What is Never Have I Ever season two about?
The season one ending hinted at a possible love triangle for Devi when she eventually kissed Ben, and at the same time, Paxton revealed he had feelings for her and tried to call her.
In a recent interview with Radio Times, director Lena Khan teased what to expect from the sophomore season, saying: “There are ten episodes in the season so I’m doing about two-and-a-half of them. Because of COVID, we’re splitting one of them because of crazy scheduling madness.”
Before signing off the juicy tell-all, Khan added: “Devi kind of—I don’t think I can say much but in the first season, she was trying to figure out how to deal with her situation with her father and now she’s kind of calibrating a different level of cool in her school.”
When is the Never Have I Ever season 3 release date?
Since the renewal news just hit, unfortunately we don't have a set date yet for when Never Have I Ever season 3 will drop on Netflix. However, using our sleuthing skills, we can tell you to expect it sometime in spring/summer 2022, since season 1 debuted in April 2020 and its follow-up in July 2021. Stay tuned!
