Mindy’s teen comedy ‘Never Have I Ever’ gets season 2 on Netflix

New York: Indian American actress-producer Mindy Kaling’s teen comedy ‘Never Have I Ever’ featuring a breakout performance from Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, is coming back for a second season.

The series, which was co-created by Kaling and Lang Fisher, has been handed a second, 10-part run by Netflix.

Ramakrishnan will reprise her lead role as high school student Devi Vishwakumar alongside returning cast including Poorna Jagannathan, Richa Moorjani, Jaren Lewison, Darren Barnet, Lee Rodriguez and Ramona Young.

The show follows the complicated life of a modern-day first-generation Indian American teenage girl, dealing with issues of family, sexuality and high school. Ramakrishnan’s Vishwakumar is a 15-year old from Sherman Oaks, CA, who wants to change her social status after a horrible year that included losing her father and being confined to a wheelchair for three months.

The show, which launched in April, has been applauded for its accurate depiction of high school as well as its inclusivity and breaking South Asian stereotypes.
