‘Never Have I Ever’ Season 2 Is Bringing You Juicy New Love Triangles
The first season of Never Have I Ever had Devi torn between Paxton and Ben. But according to series’ star Lee Rodriguez, season 2 of Mindy Kaling’s Netflix comedy is bringing fans juicy new love triangles.
Season 1 teased a few budding romances
Determined to find a boyfriend, Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) asks Paxton Hall Yoshida (Darren Barnet) to sleep with her in season 1 of Never Have I Ever. Their attempted tryst doesn’t work out. But Paxton, who is highly aloof at first, seems to develop feelings for Devi over time.
Meanwhile, Devi finally gets over the feud with her childhood nemesis Ben Gross (Ben Lewison). The two become friends. And after fighting with her mom, Devi temporarily moves in with him.
By the end of the season, Ben and Devi are pretty close. And in the finale, after Devi spreads her dad’s ashes, she realizes Ben has been there for her the whole time, and the two end up sharing an epic kiss.
‘Never Have I Ever’ season 2 will feature new love triangles
Season 2 of Never Have I Ever will likely highlight Devi’s relationships with both Paxton and Ben. And as teased by Rodriguez, who plays Fabiola on the series, the upcoming installment will also feature a few new love triangles.
“Everyone’s just evolving,” the actor revealed in a recent interview with Insider. “There’s new love interests, new love triangles. And it’s so juicy. We have a group chat and we were all messaging each other after reading the first script, we were just like, ‘This is so freaking good.'”
Devi is also getting a new nemesis
Season 2 will also introduce a host of new characters, including Dr. Chris Jackson (Common), a dermatologist who challenges Nalini professionally. Devi will also find a new nemesis in Aneesa (Megan Suri) — a popular new girl at her school.
“Aneesa’s very athletic, she is charming, she’s easy-going,” co-creator Lang Fisher told EW. “Everyone loves her. She also happens to be Muslim. She has the confidence and lack of awkward jealousy that drives Devi to be a maniac.”
What is the ‘Never Have I Ever’ season 2 release date?
The first season premiered in April 2020. After the series earned a viewership of over 40 million households, Netflix renewed it for a second season in July 2020.
Season 2 of Never Have I Ever premieres on Netflix on Thursday, July 15.
