Huge news: Maitreyi Ramakrishnan got bangs. Or, more importantly, her Netflix series Never Have I Ever has been officially renewed for a second season. The series’ co-creator Mindy Kaling shared the news on Instagram on July 1 with a clip of the cast dialing into a Zoom meeting. In the clip, Ramakrishnan — who plays lead character Devi in the coming-of-age series centered on an Indian-American teen — tries to share the news with Jaren Lewison (Ben), Darren Barnet (Paxton), Poorna Jagannathan (Nalini), Ramona Young (Eleanor), Lee Rodriguez (Fabiola), and Richa Shukla Moorjani (Kamala) — but her co-stars are too fixated on her new bangs.
“Thanks for hopping on the Zoom so quick,” Ramakrishnan says. “Once everybody’s on, I’ve got some awesome news to tell you guys.” Rodriguez then interjects, “You got bangs? They look really good.” Lewison then dials in and asks, “Maitreyi, what’d you do to your hair?” Later, Jagannathan, Ramakrishnan’s onscreen mom, questions, "New quarantine look? Did you cut it yourself?" Once Barnet and Moorjani dial in and similarly remark on Ramakrishnan’s new bangs, Lewison muses, “It seems crazy to get us together to talk about your bangs.” Finally, she cuts to the chase: “I just wanted to tell you guys that Never Have I Ever is being renewed for Season 2.”
Kaling celebrated the news on Instagram and wrote, "[Co-creator Lang Fisher] and I are incredibly grateful for our entire cast, crew, and the team at @netflix. Thank you for watching, sharing and connecting with this show.”
