You may already know that Netflix base their renewals on how many subscribers tune in to view an Original Series. It is important to consider the following factors when renewing a series:
Never Have I Ever is a popular series on Netflix. It is currently among the top three most-watched TV series on Netflix worldwide, both in April 2020 and May 2020.
Current Production Status: Post-production. (Last Updated: 20/04/2021).
In October 2020, we were informed that season 2 filming would take place in Los Angeles from November 10th to November 24th 2020. That’s a relatively short production time but could be delayed further if there are problems with COVID-19 on set. Variety later confirmed this.
There were only a handful of indications that November 2020 was filming, including some BTS Stories on Instagram.
Thanks to the release of the second season’s trailer it has not been confirmed that Never Have I Ever returns on Thursday, July 15th, 2021.
The finale of Never Have I Ever left us wondering what will happen in season two and we’ll get onto our predictions in a second but first, let’s cover what we know.
We’re able to reveal that the production is recruiting two new co-star roles, one guest star role, and a recurring guest star too.
We were informed of the arrival of one of the new cast members on December 10, 2020. Tyler Alvarez has been confirmed as a part of Never Have I Ever season 2 in a regular role. Tyler will play the role of Malcom described as a “young Hollywood type”. He’s featured in two previous Netflix series, American Vandal and Orange is the New Black.
Season two will also feature PJ Byrne, who previously appeared in The Boys Big Little Lies and Black Lightning. Megan Suri and Dr. Elgin Peters will be played by John Mawson, who are also part of season 2.
Although there were hints throughout Season 1, it wasn't long before Devi and Ben started to get together.
The young couple will be faced with many problems as Ben and Devi are currently together in a relationship. Devi was previously interested in Paxton but, thanks to his sister's encouragement, appears to have a genuine interest in Devi.
A potential second season would be filled with awkward moments between Devi and Ben, as the two try to figure out their love for one another.
Devi could reject Paxton, which would cause one of several things. It only encourages Paxton to get the girl he wants, while other boys may be interested in Devi. Finally, Sherman High girls who love Paxton might become hostile towards Devi.
There’s still the matter of whether or not Devi’s mum still wants the family to move to India.
Devi and Nalini were able to settle their differences to spread Mohan’s ashes, but there are still plenty of underlying issues that the pair need to work out together.
Devi desires the approval and love of her mother and to make her proud. Nalini, on the other hand, has had a difficult time raising Devi to become the ideal daughter.
Each have had to deal with Mohan's passing. But hopefully the spread of his ashes will be the catalyst they need to heal their relationship.
Kamala and Prashant hit it off when they met for the first time, despite the awkward scenario involving Kamala’s ex-boyfriend Steve.
Kamala and Prashant will likely talk more and maybe start dating like an American couple before getting engaged.
Fabiola finally came out to her mother and friends, but also unexpectedly, her classmates, and now she has a date for Eve. Eve was her crush on the first season.
Next season will explore Fabiola’s love life with Eve, and we’re likely to see some awkward teenage hilarity as Fabiola is likely to ask dating advice from Elanor and Devi.
