Two months after it launched on Netflix, news has come that the series co-created by Mindy Kaling, "Never Have I Ever", will be returning to the small screen.

A new season comprising ten episodes will follow on from the series' first salvo, which has met with success all over the world.

The announcement of the eagerly awaited second season has come just two months after the launch of the show on Netflix.

The innovative and politically committed story about the life of a girl from an Indian family in the US was warmly welcomed by subscribers to the streaming platform, who propelled it to top of the Netflix series ranking during the lockdown. The show mocks Indian community stereotypes and offers a relevant portrayal of the life of a high-school student, while also exploring the question of social inclusion.

Speaking to Deadline in June, Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, who plays the show's heroine, high-school student Devi Vishwakumar, remarked: “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, but we can't forget that we still have so much work to do.”

The 18-year-old, who overcame competition from 15,000 aspiring actresses to win her role, also shared her hope that the series would pave the way for other shows dealing with issues of social inclusion.
