The American coming of age comedy ‘Never Have I Ever’ will start filming its second season from next month. On 1st July, 2020 Netflix renewed the show for a second season. Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher are excited and said that they want to release it by July 2021. The production is going to take care of all the necessary safety precautions during the filming process. Netflix released the first season on 21st May, 2020 and it received a lot of positive reviews. The season has 10 episodes with a runtime of around 30 minutes. The season has received a rating of 7.8/10 on Rotten Tomatoes and had a viewership of around 40 million when it was released. When the project was announced, 15,000 people had auditioned for the lead role of Mindy Kaling.
“Never Have I Ever” on Netflix is a truly delightful show. It’s a great reminder that good things happen when writers stop protecting their characters so much and let them be flawed and broken and even occasionally *gasp* unlikeable.

What is the show ‘Never Have I Ever’ about?
The show is based on a girl whose roots are from India and is trying to break the South Asian stereotype in the western countries. The plot revolves around a young teenager, Devi Vishwakumar who struggles to fit into society and its ideologies. Devi enters high school and tries to adapt to everyone around her. Very competitive by nature, she tries to achieve her goals but unfortunately, her father dies. Due to the trauma, her legs lose their functioning for around three months. Her mother comes out as conservative trying to keep Devi safe and their relationship does not function smoothly. Her cousin sister Kamala starts living with them after which she starts comparing herself to Kamala. There are numerous scenes to which Indians can relate and how Western people have stereotyped them.
