When does Never Have I Ever come out, exactly? Devi and her crew have officially returned, much to fans' excitement. 

We were left with a bit of tension in Never Have I Ever season 2—as you might recall Devi was dating Paxton and Ben simultaneously—but now it seems the tension has eased for the debut of season 3...well, sort of. 

Devi and her dream beau are giving it another go, meanwhile Ben has found romance with new-girl Aneesa. But will the smooth sailing last? Will there be heartbreak, friendship breakups and, of course, Nalini's watchful eye? You better believe it.

The lovable and relatable Netflix sensation from Mindy Kaling is a coming-of-age series with heart, humor and plenty of pop culture references. ("My mom doesn't tell me how to live my life. Megan Thee Stallion does.") If you're not following along for Devi's junior year, you're sorely missing out on all of the fun at Sherman Oaks. 

But the show is about more than #TeamPaxton vs #TeamBen or #TeamDes, aka the new guy. Devi is left with memorable moments that shape who she is, and she'll even have a very big decision to make. As it turns out, there's more to worry about in high school than finding a boyfriend. 

When does 'Never Have I Ever' come out?

Never Have I Ever returned on August 12, and of course, now everyone is wondering "Who does Devi end up with?" (Some of us might have an inkling, but all of that could change come Never Have I Ever season 4. After all, Devi does change her mind rather frequently and quickly...) 

Watch the 'Never Have I Ever' season 3 trailer: 

'Never Have I Ever' season 3 cast: who's who?

All of your Never Have I Ever favorites are back: Maitreyi Ramakrishnan as Devi, Darren Barnet as Paxton, Jaren Lewison as Ben, Lee Rodriguez as Fabiola, Ramona Young as Eleanor, Megan Suri as Aneesa, Richa Moorjani as Kamala and Poorna Jagannathan as Dr. Nalini Vishwakumar.

Joining the cast for the third season are Anirudh Pisharody as Des, "an Indian American teen who's as smart as Devi but goes to an elite private school," and Deacon Phillippe (yes, Reese and Ryan's son) as Parker, a rival debate team member. 

Those who've been keeping a close eye on Kamala will be pleased to know she's taking charge of her love life this season. Since we don't want to give away too much, you'll have to tune in to see the certain Sherman Oaks teacher that she's set her sights on and how he's played a bigger role on the show. 

What will 'Never Have I Ever' season 3 be about?

The previous season left Devi with many a conundrum: jealousy of the new Indian girl in town, her simultaneous relationships with Ben and Paxton, a potential move back to India and her mother's new dating life. It's a lot—for Devi and her loyal following. 

This season, we'll see how #Daxton develops, but truthfully, who knows what high school romances have in store. (How about Eleanor and Trent?!) Though there were a few friendship ups and downs—like always—we assume the trio will become a quartet now that Devi realizes Aneesa isn't so bad after all. 

But what truly has our interest piqued is the newbie, Des, played by Anirudh Pisharody. Who is this hunk?! Where does he fit into the picture? Is Devi going to be able to resist him? (Probably not.) 

The main crux of the season focuses on romance, as any good YA would, but towards the end of the third installment, a curve ball is thrown in Devi's direction that made her potential move to India seem like a thing of the past. 

Devi is going to have to listen to her heart and decide what works best for her, but, fans aren't entirely sure which path Devi will follow. (We're treated to a few cliffhangers during the final episode!) Season 4 is definitely going to be interesting! 

Will there be a 'Never Have I Ever' season 4?

Even more exciting news?! Never Have I Ever season 4 will bless us with its quirky, cute teenage shenanigans in 2023. However, Kaling revealed that this will be Devi's final hoorah.

"We've just been renewed for a fourth and final season, which we're absolutely thrilled about," Kaling further revealed in her Instagram message. 

Although there is still no telling what is left of Devi's story, we have a feeling we'll see her graduate high school and likely gain acceptance to her dream school, Princeton. 

(Mindy, if you change your mind, we'll gladly follow Devi well into her college years and beyond!)

For the moment, we are focused on all-things season 3 and watching shows like Never Have I Ever to switch things up. 

See you this summer, #Bevi fans. #Daxton supporters, we guess we'll see you, too. (We're not saying we're #TeamBen, but we're not not saying it, either.)
