The release date: This is a big unknown at the moment, but the series confirmed that filming had resumed in a November 23 video posted to Twitter.
The cast: No official announcements have been made, but since Darren Barnet (Paxton Hall-Yoshida), Jaren Lewison (Ben), Richa Moorjani (Kamala), Ramona Young (Eleanor), Lee Rodriguez (Fabiola), and Poorna Jagannathan (Devi’s mom, Nalini) all appear in the announcement video with Ramakrishnan…we’re hopeful for them all to return.
In November, Netflix announced Megan Suri will join the Never Have I Ever cast. She plays Aneesa, “a new student at Sherman Oaks High, whose confidence and radiance will pose an immediate threat to Devi,” the official Netflix account tweeted.
There are also three other characters who will be introduced in the second season.
Tyler Alvarez will take on the role of Malcom, a teen actor who returns to Sherman Oaks High. Deadline describes the character as a “Young Hollywood” type, who “went to elementary school with Devi and her friends but left when he was cast in a Disney Channel show.”
Then there’s Utkarsh Ambudkar who you might recognize since he played as Mindy’s little brother on The Mindy Project. He will take on the role of Mr. Kulkarni, who Deadline describes as “the coolest teacher on staff at Sherman Oaks High.”
Finally, actor P.J. Byrne also joined the cast of Never Have I Ever as Evan, the head research assistant in Kamala’s (Devi’s cousin) program at Caltech.
The plot: We don’t know much of anything on this front, but we’re sure Kaling and her team will come up with some amazing storylines for Devi, her friends, her family, and that brewing love triangle.
