Mindy Kaling’s ‘Never Have I Ever’ Renewed For Fourth & Final Season At Netflix

Never Have I Ever, the coming-of-age comedy following the life of an Indian-American teen, is returning for a fourth and final season.

The series from Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher stars Maitreyi Ramakrishnan as Devi, a teenage Indian-American Tamil girl from L.A.

Season 3, which just wrapped production, will launch this summer, and the streamer has handed the comedy an early renewal to end the story. Production on Season 4, which will launch in 2023, is expected to kick off in the coming months.

Season 2, which launched in July 2021, was focused on Devi’s boy troubles, teenage desperation and competition from a new Indian student. When choosing between Paxton (Darren Barnet) and Ben (Jaren Lewison) becomes too much of a conflict, she decides to take on both boys as significant others.

Poorna Jagannathan, Richa Moorjani, Lee Rodriguez and Ramona Young also star with The Goldbergs’ Anirudh Pisharody joining in a recurring role for Season 3. John McEnroe narrates.

The series is produced by Universal Television, in association with 3 Arts Entertainment, Original Langster and Kaling International.

Co-creator Fisher is showrunner and exec produces alongside Kaling and 3 Arts Entertainment’s Howard Klein and David Miner.

The first season performed well on the service, with 40M households tuning in during its first four weeks. It also made a star out of newcomer Ramakrishnan, who subsequently signed up to star in Netflix rom-com The Netherfield Girls, to voice the role of Priya in Pixar’s Turning Red and to voice Zipp Storm in a number of My Little Pony animated series.

Ramakrishnan told Deadline in 2020 that Never Have I Ever has helped “break” stereotypes but that there’s plenty of work left to do. “Devi is only one story,” she said. “Hopefully as much as this show inspires other minorities around the world, it will also inspire directors, producers, creators, writers to start bringing that natural inclusion into their shows.”

Said Kaling and Fisher. “We can’t wait to reveal all the steamy romance and hilarious adventures we have in store for you. Thanks to all our fans for your support.”

Bela Bajaria, Netflix Head of Global TV said” “We are thrilled to have two more seasons of Never Have I Ever. It’s everything we want in a Netflix comedy series: authentic, specific, funny, and full of heart. I love that a story I relate to so deeply – about a young, Indian-American girl – hits on so many universal truths that resonate with just about everyone. We’re eternally grateful to Mindy, Lang and the wildly talented cast. And we can’t wait for everyone to see the final two seasons.”

Added Erin Underhill, President of Universal Television. “Four seasons of Never Have I Ever is truly exciting and a little bittersweet because, as a loyal fan, I’d love Devi’s journey to go on forever. But just like high school, all great things must come to an end. A big shout out to our fearless Cricket Queens, Mindy and Lang, and our exceptional cast and crew, who have authentically captured the emotional rollercoaster ride that defines our teenage years. We can’t wait to experience all of the messiness, the LOLs and the tears that will surely unfold in Devi’s senior year.”

Lee Rodriguez, the Young Afro-Latina Actress Making Waves

Fabiola is a proudly gay teenager, captain of her high school robotics team, and one of the lead characters in Mindy Kaling’s Netflix series “Never Have I Ever.” The success of the series has put Afro-Latina actress Lee Rodriguez, who plays Fabiola, center stage.

“In high school, I was this shy, tall girl with a big afro. Playing Fabiola, that’s how she feels too,” Rodriguez told ET‘s Melicia Johnson about the similarities between herself and her character. “She’s an [Afro-Latina], tall, [with] dorky clothes. She’s figuring herself out and trying things; some things don’t work, and she learns more about herself. And that’s a perfect example of growing up.”

Lee Rodriguez was born in Fresno, California, and grew up in Hesperia. Her love for acting began in eighth grade while attending Encore Jr./Sr. High School, a school specializing in the arts.

After enrolling in a talent agency, Rodriguez soon landed her first break playing Bea in “Class of Lies” in 2018. In the same year, she portrayed Naomi in “Grown-ish” in 2018. In 2020, Rodriguez joined the cast of “Never Have I Ever” and set the tone with her performance and Fabiola‘s afro.

Lee Rodriguez claimed to be proud of her Latina and black culture and shared how she has “the best of both worlds.”

“I’m thankful to be close with both sides,” she says of her family, adding that while her paternal grandmother doesn’t speak English and she doesn’t speak Spanish, they’re always “finding a way to connect” amid the language barrier.

The young actress has used her platform to share her concern and activism for climate change, starting an Instagram Live series “Learning With Lee: The Climate Crisis,” where she addresses issues such as fast fashion.

Lee Rodriguez will continue to play Fabiola in the upcoming third season of “Never Have I Ever” and hopes to make the leap to her true passion: music.
