When Never Have I Ever premiered on Netflix in 2020 as a surprise pandemic hit, it was the latest in a lineup of teen coming-of-age stories. The series, which is (very loosely) based on the formative years of producer Mindy Kaling, was an instant fan-favorite, and Devi Vishwakumar’s (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) dilemma between potential love interests Paxton (Darren Barnet) and Ben (Jaren Lewison) became everyone’s new favorite love triangle. Season 2 managed to keep the triangle going, with Ben and Paxton both competing for her attention. With things still unresolved, Never Have I Ever Season 3 was practically a given. And on Aug. 19, Netflix confirmed the show will continue.
Warning: Spoilers for Never Have I Ever Seasons 1 and 2 follow. Never Have I Ever’s second season had a difficult thread to follow. How does one keep Devi from winding up with one boy while still keeping the other from moving on? The answer was having her date both guys at the start of Season 2. But when that blew, up Devi was left with no one, Paxton had to figure out what to do after a car crash (which Devi accidentally helped cause) derailed his swimming career, and Ben moved on with another girl, Devi’s friend and rival, Aneesa (Megan Suri).
But the end of the second season changed things up again. Having gone to the dance with Aneesa, Ben learned that Devi has had feelings for him the whole time and only recently decided to focus on Paxton, who showed up to the dance to go public with Devi.
So, it seems Ben, Paxton, and Devi will all be back to their same love triangle drama in Season 3. Here’s everything to know about the new season so far:
