Never Have I Ever Season 3: Meet the New Cast Members and Characters
The story centers around Devi Vishwakumar, a 15-year-old Indian-American Tamil girl from Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles. After her father, Mohan, dies suddenly, Devi loses sensation in her legs due to psychological trauma, making her unable to walk for three months. One day, in an attempt to see her crush Paxton Hall-Yoshida, she miraculously recovers and stands on her legs. After having a socially horrible freshman year, she wishes to change her social status, but friends, family, and feelings do not make it easy for her. Meanwhile, Devi's friend Eleanor deals with learning her absentee mother has been back in town for months with no contact, while Devi's other friend Fabiola struggles to come out as gay. Devi's live-in cousin Kamala tries to hide her college boyfriend from her family, as her family expects her to wed Prashant, an Indian man she's never met, in an arranged marriage.
In an interview with The New York Times, Kaling said that Netflix was open to have a show "set in the '80s or the '90s, but I'd seen that done so well with shows like Fresh Off the Boat and Everybody Hates Chris. I really wanted to speak to kids now". The show's name, Never Have I Ever, was created by co-creator Lang Fisher, and Kaling said it was chosen because "[Devi's] ego is so caught up in the things she hasn't done yet, hasn't been exposed to yet. And that felt really kind of natural to her personality". Speaking to The Hindu, Kaling said the show was "definitely not based on my childhood but it is in the spirit of my childhood", adding "I was a shy nerd, but did not have the confidence Devi has".

The website's critical consensus for the first season reads, "Never Have I Ever's fresh take on the coming-of-age comedy is hilariously honest, sweetly smart, and likely to have viewers falling head over heels for charming newcomer Maitreyi Ramakrishnan". The website's critical consensus for the second season reads, "Though Never Have I Ever's sophomore season at times suffers from tonal commitment issues, nuanced writing and an utterly charming cast make it easy to forgive and enjoy," while the website's critical consensus for the third season reads, "Never has this charming coming of age series ever let down its fans, and this third season continues the winning streak by approaching the angst of teenage romance with frankness and charm." On Metacritic, it has a weighted average score of 80 out of 100 based on 37 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".
Reviewing the third season, Meera Navlakha from Mashable criticized it for the "sheer number of relationships examined", stating that it meant some were "given less brevity and depth" and that plotlines were "often discarded too quickly". However, Navlakha also praised the season for "the idea of "being Indian" [being] explored in a nuanced storyline" and for "some fantastic one-liners and scenarios that blend culture in a way that's rarely seen on screen", along with noting a "thematic shift in the series, focusing more on identity, self-esteem, and change". Sonikka Loganathan from The Hindu praised Devi's character development, while adding that there were "arguably too many subplots afoot".

Devi Vishmakumar is getting ready to graduate. Seven months after Netflix announced that Never Have I Ever had been renewed for season 3, creator Mindy Kaling revealed in March 2022 that the show had also gotten the green light for its fourth and final installment.
Paxton and Ben may have another potential love interest to compete with in season 3. "Meet Des: he's the whole frickin' package," the show's official Instagram account announced in January 2022, alongside a photo of actor Anirudh Pisharody. Per Deadline, Des goes to an elite private school, but is just as smart as Devi, which will likely bring out her competitive side.
Devi and Paxton may be in a new relationship, but that doesn't mean everything will be a fairy tale for them going forward. "It'll be really cool to see Devi in a proper relationship because we technically never really have," Ramakrishnan told ET in July 2021. "But I think Paxton realizing what Devi means to him is really nice because he realizes, 'This is the person that believes in me and doesn't think I'm stupid.'"
Season 3 is the third season of Netflix's series Never Have I Ever. On August 19, 2021, it was announced that the series was renewed for a third season. Production began in November 2021 and wrapped on February 28, 2022. It was released on August 12, 2022.
Devi struts into Junior year with her arm linked with the boy she has been obsessing over the whole series, dream-boy Paxton (Darren Barnet). However, after overhearing the snide remarks of slut-shaming mean girls, our anxious protagonist neglects to practice the art of restraint and blindly retaliates. After realizing she's not ready to take the next step in her relationship and that their comments are inconsequential to both them and her, Devi's fears quickly subside. But after watching two seasons of Devi's character development and relapses, we're not surprised when she engages with an online troll despite Paxton's reassurances. Turns out the anonymous whistleblower was Hailey (Alex Felix) from orchestra, a girl Paxton had shared an intimate moment with and then ghosted. This leads us to a heartfelt scene where Paxton apologizes to all the girls he had wronged in his past.
Narrator Andy Samberg returns in another Ben-centric episode where we gain further insight into his home life. Ben's taking too many classes. So many that he doesn't have time to eat properly or go to the bathroom. Suffering from a severe stomach ache, Ben is taken to hospital by Paxton and learns that he is literally "full of shit" since he hasn't defecated in weeks. This leads to a much-needed bro-bonding moment with Paxton and another father-son "I'm proud of you" moment that encourages Ben to drop two classes and slow down. In turn, Ben helps Paxton write his college essay and is embraced by his school friends, leaving Ben with an entirely necessary shift of perspective on maintaining a work-life balance.
With Junior year coming to an end, Devi has to decide whether she wants to go to a prestigious boarding school in Colorado that would practically guarantee her a spot in Princeton (and a place where being a nerd is cool), or remain at Sherman Oaks where her friends and family were. A poignant scene between Devi and her mother reveals her decision to stay as she realizes she wanted one more year with the people she loved. We can only hope that Devi might be a bit more mature and a little bit wiser in her final year. There are also several romances to look forward to in the new season. With Trent being held back a year, we get to see more of his and Elenor's passionate and unpredictable relationship.
Never Have I Ever started its journey on Netflix as a unique perspective on the trials and tribulations of teenage life told from a South Asian perspective. Mindy Kaling and her team have found all the right notes through the last three seasons to capture the experience of growing up as a first generation Indian-American. Romance has always been at the heart of the story, but the third season takes the relationships to an entirely different prevalence.
On the other end of the spectrum, Paxton was able to show Devi that she should never feel less than her partner. She is a beautiful person who will find love, no matter whether that looks unlikely during her bouts of moodiness or anxiety.
It's almost time to say goodbye to our favorite messy teen Devi Vishwakumar (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan). Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher's teen dramedy Never Have I Ever returned for season 3 last summer, following the boy-crazy brainiac through her junior year as she entered and left two (!) relationships and continued her journey of self-confidence. The show's creative team has confirmed that Devi's story will end with her senior year, and that the fourth and final season has already on the way. Here's what we know about our final year at Sherman Oaks High.
Yes! Netflix released the official look at season 4 on May 9, which opens in the aftermath of Devi's hookup with Ben! But just because Devi has finally crossed her personal milestone, doesn't mean she has everything figured out. The now-senior has to balance her new dynamic with Ben, her feelings for newly-hot peer Ethan (Michael Cimino), and Paxton's surprising return to Sherman Oaks High, all while working toward entering her dream school, Princeton.
The final season of Never Have I Ever was announced way before season 4 even dropped, with Kaling and Fisher making the announcement via a letter to fans last March. Production on the final season started soon after, with Kaling sharing a pic from the writer's room in April. Per Elle, season 4 finished filming in early August, with the cast hosting a send-off carnival where Fisher and Ramakrishnan both gave goodbye speeches.
So far, the show has followed a regular schedule, with season 1 hitting Netflix in April 2020, season 2 in July 2021, and season 3 this August. However, since season 4 got an early renewal and head start, we could see the final season hitting Netflix in late spring or early summer next year.
The season 3 finale was also a big moment for Paxton (Darren Barnet), as he decided to enroll in Arizona State University for college. Though his graduation speech and conversation with Devi could seem like a goodbye for the character, Never Have I Ever really wouldn't be the same without that corner of Devi's love triangle. Luckily, Fisher agrees, as the co-creator confirmed to Deadline that Paxton will appear in season 4.
