Never Have I Ever, the hit Netflix series starring Maitreyi Ramakrishnan has been renewed for a fourth and final season ahead of its season 3 release later this year.
Never Have I Ever is a coming-of-age drama following the life of Devi Vishwakumar (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) an Indian-American student as she navigates the complexities of high school, culture, and men. Alongside Ramakrishnan, the show stars Poorna Jagannathan, Karen Lewison, Ramona Young and many more.
Shortly after news of the renewal broke, writers Kaling and Fisher explained: “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.”
Fans have since taken to Twitter to plead with the creators to extend the series beyond the recently announced fourth season. There is, after all, still a lot to be explored about Devi and her journey to adulthood.
Adding to Kalin and Fisher’s words, Erin Underhill, the President of Universal Television had this to say: “Four seasons of Never Have I Ever is truly exciting and a little bittersweet because, as a loyal fan, I’d love Devi’s journey to go on forever. But just like high school, all great things must come to an end“
The first two seasons of the show were a hit globally, and Netflix was quick to renew the series both after season 1 and season 2 aired. The success of Never Have I Ever centres around the representation of South Asian households, women and culture — a topic largely ignored by mainstream media.
The success of the series is quite clear, given Netflix have renewed the series prior to the launch of season 3, which has just finished filming in Malibu. Netflix anticipated that 40 million households watched season 1 during the first four weeks of its release.
Season 3 of the hit series will arrive on Netflix later this summer with the fourth and final season arriving in 2023.
