Devi is back, and a new Never Have I Ever cast narrator is joining our beloved high school misfit along for the ride. 

Never Have I Ever season 2 just launched on Netflix, and we're anxious to see and hear what's new. The first season of Mindy Kaling's YA success featured the voice of John McEnroe as Devi's inner voice and Andy Samberg as Ben's. Though it might be difficult to top, Kaling has selected the perfect fit for Paxton's conscience: Gigi Hadid. 

The supermodel fittingly mulls over Paxton's woes: heartbreak, the struggle of having a perfectly symmetrical face, and so on. Just business as usual for Devi's heartthrob.

Originally, Chrissy Teigen was expected to do the honors of voicing Paxton's subconscious but backed away from the role as social media drama unfolded for her earlier this year. 

"Chrissy Teigen has decided to step away from a guest voiceover role in one episode of the upcoming second season of Never Have I Ever," a show spokesperson revealed, according to Entertainment Weekly. "The role is expected to be recast."

The replacement was kept under wraps until the second season premiered on July 15th. Now that Paxton has become an even more significant character—and one of Devi's two boyfriends—it's only right that he, too, gets a little time in the voiceover spotlight. (For the record we're #TeamBen, but fair is fair.)

There's plenty of fun to look forward to now that Devi's returned to screens: She's weighing the pros and cons of both fellas, Paxton and Ben, to decide which one is relationship material. She's expected to move to India with her mom, as promised in season one, but while still in California, she's thrown for a loop when another Indian girl surfaces at school and moves in on her territory both academically and personally.

Who's ready to indulge in this feel-good teen drama?!
