UNITED STATES: Never Have I Ever returns for a third instalment, allowing us to delve further into the fascinating characteristics of our cherished characters. Never Have I Ever follows the life of an Indian-American girl named Devi, is full of humour interwoven with a teen’s experience.

Mindy Kailing and Lang Fisher created Netflix’s coming-of-age comedy-drama series. The teen drama loosely reflects Kaling’s early experiences, which is an entertaining and engaging feature of the show. Maitreyi Ramakrishnan plays the lead role of Devi. Poorna Jagannathan, Darren Barnet, Richa Moorjani, Megan Suri, Lee Rodriguez, Ramona Young, John McEnroe and Jaren Lewison star in the prominent roles.

Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, as usual, becomes the Netflix drama’s highlight; her pleasant demeanour and great acting talents matter greatly, giving emotional layers to her character. Poorna Jagannathan’s character growth is aided by her solid performance, which keeps the show’s atmosphere intact.

Richa Moorjani retains her significance despite the large ensemble with her stellar performance; she also offers many facets to the show while adding lightening on the acting level. Lee Rodriguez’s charisma is combined with the premise that she emotes via her persona.

The character advances emotionally and personally while upholding the series’ marvellous themes without adding new concepts to the show. Furthermore, the ten episodes’ short runtime helps with the binge-watching criterion. The less time-consuming and more pleasant segments convey what it intends to express.

Never Have I Ever encompasses the evident troops of teenage showcases yet keeps its distinct and vibrant feelings, which feel somewhat repetitive but enjoyable to watch occurrence. This time, Devi’s role does not overpower her companions’ characters, who are given the screentime to evolve. Humour and comic punches have become cliches, but they still make us chuckle.

What could have been better?

However, the most endearing quality of the shows from season one continues to fade in subsequent seasons. The cultural representation in the first season made the Netflix show so popular and well-liked among viewers, but all of these traits risk eroding in the latest season. The program is gradually transforming into a dull teenage drama with a plot line that makes it feel redundant.

The show’s predictability is also off the charts, as we can simply picture the entire scene while presenting our favourite characters. We start to lose interest in the tale till the conclusion of the series.

The character also appears to get off topic at times, which appears to be the stretchy aspect of the narrative. It appears like the creators attempted to take a new version of the program from its predecessor, but they sacrificed the most endearing feature of the show.


Never Have I Ever season 3 retains the entertainment value but lacks the charm that made its predecessors the most beloved season.

Transcontinental Times rating: 3/5
