It’s been a long time coming, but Netflix finally renewed Mindy Kaling’s Never Have I Ever! Netflix confirmed today that one of the top high school shows on the platform will be returning for its second season!
We are so excited for a second season of #NeverHaveIEver! It’s all because you guys turned up to watch it and told your friends – it’s that simple! Thank you so much. And THANK YOU to our partners at @Netflix! ❤️🙌🏾❤️

As Kaling and Lang Fisher helm the fort for the series, they’re happy to know that they’ve been given a chance at another 10-episode banger––which will be dropping sooner or later on the platform. To let us, and her co-stars, know of the good news, Netflix took it to Twitter to release a cute clip of the series’ star Maitreyi Ramakrishnan calling her co-stars on video chat. As everyone jokes around and thinks she’s just flaunting her new hairstyle, she drops the news of the second season’s renewal.
Never Have I Ever has been renewed for Season 2!

When Never Have I Ever dropped on the streaming giant last April, it caught fire (in a good way) real quick––gaining traction from every side of the world. In fact, it even made it to the streamer’s Top 10 list of most popular shows and movies. That’s how good it was. This is its Netflix synopsis:
After a traumatic year, an Indian-American teen just wants to spruce up her social status — but friends, family, and feelings won’t make it easy on her.
“I think it’s great that we have a story like Never Have I Ever but it’s depressing that this is happening in 2020 and even though we can applaud breaking stereotypes, we can’t forget that we still have so much work to do,” Ramakrishnan told Deadline in June. “Devi is only one story. Hopefully as much as this show inspires other minorities around the world, it will also inspire directors, producers, creators, writers to start bringing that natural inclusion into their shows.”
Alongside Ramakrishnan, the series will be including stars such as Poorna Jagannathan, Richa Moorjani, Jaren Lewison, Darren Barnet, Lee Rodriguez and Ramona Young.
Since there’s no sign of a season two trailer yet, here’s season one’s to relive what was one of the top series on the platform.
