Never Have I Ever has become the rare Netflix series to have an announced and planned ending ahead of its series finale. The beloved teen series stars Maitreyi Ramakrishnan as Devi Vishwakumar, an awkward and thirsty teenager whose initial goal was to date Sherman Oaks High School’s resident hunk, Paxton Hall-Yoshida (Darren Barnet). The comedy deftly combines Devi’s romantic entanglements with her identity as one of the few South Asian American students at her school and her working through her grief over her father’s death.
Never Have I Ever has seen Devi through a lot of ups and downs so far. Season 3 began with Devi and Paxton finally in a relationship, though the former couldn’t escape from her insecurities no matter how hard she tried. The latest season ended with Paxton graduating and Devi moving forward with Ben, who she dated briefly in season 2 before he realized she was cheating on him. Ahead of Never Have I Ever’s season 3, it was confirmed the comedy series was renewed for season 4.
The Latest Never Have I Ever Season 4 News
There hasn’t been much official information from Netflix for Never Have I Ever season 4. What is known about the new season is that production wrapped in August 2022 as the show’s stars took to social media to say goodbye to their time on the series. Netflix also cast a few new faces for season 4, potentially creating a few new love triangles (or squares) for the show. In fact, one of the few for the new season comes courtesy of Never Have I Ever’s spot in the Netflix TUDUM event in 2022: there will be a wedding at some point in Never Have I Ever season 4.
Never Have I Ever Season 4 Cast
The main cast of characters is returning in Never Have I Ever season 4. Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, Lee Rodriguez, and Ramona Young will still play the main trio of best friends. Poorna Jagannathan, Richa Moorjani, and Ranjita Chakravarty will all return as Devi’s family members. Jaren Lewison is back as Devi’s academic rival and love interest Ben, and even Daren Barnett is back as Paxton, despite his character graduating from high school in season 3.
In other Never Have I Ever season 4 news, there will be a pair of new actors joining the season in Michael Cimino (previously of Love, Victor) and Jeff Garlin (The Goldbergs). Both characters are entering the series as potential love interests, Cimino for Devi and Garlin for Nirmala. John McEnroe is expected to be back to narrate with Benjamin Norris (Trent), Utkarsh Ambudkar (Manish), Niecy Nash (Dr. Ryan), and Sendhil Ramamurthy (Mohan) all expected to reprise their supporting roles in the show. Not returning are season 3 newcomers Anirudh Pisharody (Des) and Rhyah (Sarayu Blue).
Never Have I Ever Season 4 Release Date Prediction
Never Have I Ever has historically been released on Netflix in the spring and summer, and season 4 will most likely follow the same path to a streaming date. It’s been confirmed that season 4 will begin streaming on Netflix in 2023, but the exact date is yet to be determined. With that in mind, it’s possible Never Have I Ever season 4 will premiere in April/May or July/August 2023. Netflix shows typically have at least one year between each season, so the latter release window seems more likely.
Never Have I Ever Season 4 Story
Season 3 ended with Devi concluding her junior year of high school, so Never Have I Ever season 4 is expected to follow the teen as she embarks on her senior year, likely culminating with her graduation. Devi made a few big decisions in the season 3 finale, declining her acceptance to Shrubland to spend more time with her mom before she leaves for college. In the romance department, Devi decided to go for it with Ben after realizing it was with him that she feels butterflies. Devi found she and Paxton could genuinely be friends despite everything.
It’s possible Never Have I Ever will finally explore Devi and Ben’s romantic relationship in season 4. Devi and Ben are finally on the same page and season 4 will likely focus a lot on them as they navigate this new, more mature version of their relationship. Meanwhile, Kamala and Manish are going strong, which suggests Manish could propose to Kamala before the end of season 4. And of course, Never Have I Ever won’t end without fans getting to see Devi at her graduation ceremony, hopefully having got into her dream school of Princeton.
Never Have I Ever Season 4 Trailer
Netflix isn’t consistent with when it releases trailers for its content. While some movies might release trailers months in advance, TV shows might have trailers released only a few weeks ahead of time. Outer Banks season 3, for example, saw a trailer released only the month before its premiere date. Fans can likely expect a trailer to release once Netflix sets a release date or has more Never Have I Ever season 4 news to share.
Never Have I Ever Season 4 Is The Final Season
In March 2022, it was announced that Netflix had renewed Never Have I Ever for season 4, but that it would be the show’s final season. As with the previous three seasons of the show, season 4 will likely consist of ten 30-minute episodes. Season 4 being the last makes sense considering the show has been all about Devi’s high school experience, which is coming to a close soon. As she enters her senior year at Sherman Oaks High, fans will be saying goodbye to the comedy series just as Devi prepares to leave high school behind for good.
