[This story contains spoilers from Season 2 of Never Have I Ever. Read at your own risk, lovelies!]
If you too are on the tail end of bingeing Never Have I Ever Season 2, BOY, do we have a lot to talk about! Before we start, though, let's get one thing straight: Who knew Devi Vishwakumar (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) could get herself into more trouble than she already did at the end of Season 1? Not only does she "Devi it up" once again (using a term coined by her very own BFFs), but this time, she's truly in a world of drama.
Where will this take her? Well, that's the question on everyone's mind, isn't it? While Netflix has kept details of Never Have I Ever Season 3 under wraps, there are a few things to know about what's in store for Devi, so let's get into it.
Is Never Have I Ever Season 3 even confirmed yet?
Netflix just made our biggest wishes come true. At the 2021 Television Critics Association press tour, the screening giant announced that Never Have I Ever is officially coming back for season three.
"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," co-creators Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher announced in a press release.
Wait, what happened in Season 2 again? Remind me!
Let's gift ourselves a tiny recap of what’s going on with our dear Devi. She's essentially got Ben (Jaren Lewison) and Paxton (Darren Barnet) vying for her romantic affections, and she has no clue who to choose…and tries to date them both at the same time.
Obviously, this does not pan out and she has to watch Ben make out with new student Aneesa (Megan Suri) while she's blackmailed into helping Paxton pull his grades back up. And let's not forget how her mom, Nalini (Poorna Jagannathan), is being somewhat ~romanced~ by fellow dermatologist Chris Jackson (Common), while Kamala (Richa Moorjani) is just trying to balance her work in the lab with a possibly failing relationship.
Cool-cool-cool. Who from the cast is coming back?
Well, obvs Maitreyi Ramakrishnan because we can't have a show about Devi without the leading lady herself. And coupled with the fact that Devi is now officially Paxton's GF, it's obvious that Darren Barnet is coming back for Season 3 as well. After all…don't we all deserve a chance to see Paxton shirtless once more?
You're welcome, by the way.
Aside from Daxton coming back (yeah, totally made up this 'ship name), it's confirmed that Jaren Lewison (Ben), Lee Rodriguez (Fabiola), Ramona Young (Eleanor), Richa Moorjani (Kamala), Poorna Jagannathan (Nalini), and, yes, even John McEnroe will reappear. As the millennials would say, it's lit.
Do we know what Season 3 will be about?
That's a hard no for now. But making an educated guess tells us we can expect Devi and Paxton to navigate the meaning of a real relationship. Will Devi blow something way out of proportion? Probably. And will Paxton find out if he got into college? Um…we'll have to wait on that one.
Season 2 left a lot of the characters in odd situations that would almost certainly be explored in a renewed Season 3. Ben is clearly jealous over Devi and Paxton becoming an official thing. Fabiola seems to still be head over heels for her GF, Eve. Eleanor is finally accepting herself and the role her dad plays in her life. Nalini seems like she's finally ready to move forward from the death of her husband. And…uh, is Kamala getting married or? Given how she showed up to the dance looking all googly-eyed at Devi's teacher, who knows!!!!
