Devi Vishmakumar is preparing for her graduation. Seven months after Netflix announced that I have never has been renewed for season 3, creators Mindy Kaling announced in March 2022 that the show had also been given the green light for its fourth and final episode.
The raunchy teen comedy revolves around Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan), a 15-year-old Indian-American girl who is grieving the recent death of her father, on top of the usual high school stress: trying to seduce Paxton (Darren Barnet), the hottest boy in school, defeats her academic nemesis Ben (Jaren Lewisson) and navigating tensions with her best friends. In addition, Devi and her mother Nalini (Poorna Jagannathan), are constantly at odds and her beautiful, perfect cousin Kamala (Richa Moorjani) just moved in.
At the beginning of the first season, Devi begins her sophomore year of high school and Kaling saw fit to wrap things up around the time that she would graduate.
“Four seasons for a high school show felt like it made sense,” he said office alum tells entertainment tonight in April 2022 about the decision to end the series. “There are some things built into a high school show that felt like ‘OK, now it’s time.'”
She continued, “But the truth is, we got to know the characters. The great thing about doing it on Netflix is that we have to tell stories that traditional network shows couldn’t necessarily tell, and that makes us feel good. We really told the story of this 15-year-old girl and it felt like the perfect amount of time.”
Kaling and the rest of the writers will likely be able to squeeze plenty of drama and romance into these remaining seasons. Season 2 ended on a cliffhanger when Paxton agreed to officially be Devi’s boyfriend – just as Ben learns she had feelings for him – putting the teenager in a position she’s never been in before.
“What will Devi be like as a real girlfriend in a real relationship with someone much more experienced than her?” showrunner long fisherman wondered ET in July 2021. “That was her dream for the entire series. … And now she has one, and he’s the most popular boy in school.”
She continued, “It’s like, ‘How’s that going to be?’ Will it be the dream she always imagined, or will it get more complicated? And probably it will be more complicated. There are still those things you want to explore about sex, and what do you do when you’re a nerd who’s done very little and is dating a much more experienced guy?
I’ve never seen Ever’s central love triangle will also play a role in Season 3, with Lewison keen to find out how Ben will react to this new information.
“I know I really love it for me and for Ben when he’s vulnerable, but I still love some of that Ben rudeness when he’s dropping names and being loud and bold. I never want that to go away,” said the University of Southern California graduate ET. “If we get that chance in season 3, a lot would be about that inner conflict between Devi, between Aneesa and that growth and maturity. I have no idea what he is thinking and feeling. And I would be really excited about that.”
