Never Have I Ever is a teen comedy on Netflix starring Maitreyi Ramakrishnan. It is a huge hit amongst the audience of the streaming giant and has been Top Trending on Netflix in various regions.

The immense popularity and the fans flooding the show’s official Instagram account with comments which say “GIVE US A SEASON 2” and “I binge-watched the entire series in one night” is an ode to the creators to renew it ASAP!!

Renewal Status

Official Twitter account is showing that season 2 is coming.

Why did Devi Kiss, Ben?

Devi engages in a special moment with Ben, and sparks were flying! But how did that happen? We know that Ben and Devi were academic rivals for years.

Despite their close relationship in the first few episodes of Never Have I Ever, things get better between them in the latter half, with the two discovering more about each other. Skip to the finale, and we catch Devi and Ben kiss in Ben’s car.

Ben reunited Devi with her best friends and made sure she reached the beach on time to immerse her father’s ashes. He even stayed with her to make sure she was okay. Devi was caught in her emotions, resulting in the pair’s kiss.

The bigger question arises: will Ben dump his Insta-obsessed girlfriend, Shira, for Devi in Never Have I Ever season 2? And if he does, will Devi even be interested in dating him? Now that Devi and Ben have shared a kiss, things may not be the same again with Devi and Paxton either. So, will she choose Ben over Paxton? Or will she choose to stay single?

Only time will tell.

Now a little about Season 2:

Who can return in Season 2?

NHIE is Devi’s story so we will see Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) back in the future episodes. The heartthrobs Darren Barnet (as Paxton) and Jaren Lewison (as Ben) will also be returning to confuse us about whose side we are on.

The show will not be the same without Richa Moorjani (as Kamala), Poorna Jagannathan (as Nalini), Ramona Young (as Eleanor), Lee Rodriguez (as Fabiola) and Adam Shapiro (as Mr. Shapiro). So, they are also expected to reprise their roles.

Never Have I Ever

Will McEnroe continues to narrate Devi’s emotions, or will a new voice be chosen? That’s a secret for now.


There were many unfinished plot lines in Season 1. If the next season is happening (and we really hope it is), it is expected to give a conclusion to those:

  • At the end of the first season of Never Have I Ever, Devi found herself in a three-way situation. It is plausible for Season 2 to explore the Devi-Paxton-Ben love triangle.
  • Devi’s mum dropped a bomb that she was planning to leave California and head back to India. But, we have gotten an impression that Nalini herself is not too enthusiastic about this idea. So, will the mother-daughter duo go back to India or will they stay put in California? Or is it just Nalini leaving while Devi stays back and lives with Ben?
  • Kamala is due to enter a marriage arranged by her parents with Prashant. Little do they know about Steve, Kamala’s boyfriend. She seems reluctant to marry a man she barely even knows until she meets her potential husband, Prashant for the first time. So, will she leave Steve for Prashant? Or will her parents find out about Steve?

Never Have I Ever

There are many questions regarding Never Have I Ever Season 2. Is the main setting for the next season India? Will Ben and Paxton fight for Devi? Or will they become friends during the course of Devi’s decision-making time?

There are numerous possibilities and we are losing sleep over making up scenarios. So, dear Mindy Kailing, please give us a green flag and announce Season 2 already.
