Season 3 just dropped, but if you’re like us, you’re already wondering when Never Have I Ever season 4 will arrive.
NHIE Season 4 was first announced back in March 2022, as the show was granted an early double renewal by Netflix. Unfortunately, it was also revealed that Season 4 would be the show’s final season.
Co-created by Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher, the hit coming-of-age comedy series follows the complex life of first-gen Indian American teenager Devi (played by Maitreyi Ramakrishnan), an ambitious high schooler who struggles with identity, young love and sex, and the journey of healing from grief. The series was partly inspired by Kaling’s own life growing up, and has made incredible strides for diverse, authentic South Asian representation on television.
“My philosophy is, if you are so proud of your identity, whoever that may be, whether it’s related to your culture, orientation, or anything in between — if you are so proud in that, that means it’s a story that deserves to have screen time, because it’s worth it,” Maitreyi told Teen Vogue back in 2021, speaking about her show’s impact. “Clearly there’s an audience, and that audience is you.”
In April, co-creator Mindy Kaling spoke to Entertainment Tonight about the show being capped off with four seasons, divulging that four seasons was always her vision for the series. “Four seasons for a high school show felt like it made sense,” said Mindy. “They can’t be in high school forever. We’ve seen those shows. Like, you’ve been in high school for 12 years. What is going on here? Also, the actors get older and it starts looking insane that a 34-year-old is playing a 15-year-old.”

We really told the story of this 15-year-old girl and that felt like the perfect amount of time.”
Over the course of three seasons so far, Devi has grown through grief, has learned valuable self-awareness, and confronted her own insecurities. She has moved beyond her season 1 quest of attaining love — by season 3, she’s focused on making sure she loves herself. Season 4 promises the culmination of all of Devi’s internal exploration, growth, and ambition with a firecracker delivery similar to Devi’s own personality. Plus… who will she end up with? Will Devi choose one of the two boys who have dominated her love triangle for three seasons straight, or will she choose herself? There’s so much to look forward to, that it’s a bit hard to keep track of — so we’ve collected everything we know so far about Never Have I Ever Season 4, including release date, cast information, plot details, a trailer, and more.
