Never Have I Ever is back for its second season which drops later this week on July 15. The Netflix series proved to be popular as it follows the complicated life of a modern-day first-generation Indian American teenage girl. Express.co.uk has all the details on what happened in season one.

What happened in season one of Never Have I Ever?

Never Have I Ever was co-created by The Office US star Mindy Kaling, who used her own childhood as inspiration for the series.

Season one picks up with Devi Vishwakumar (played by Maitreyi Ramakrishnan), a teenage girl who is a first-generation Indian American.

Throughout season one, Devi struggles to juggle her high school life and friends with her traditional parents.

Devi and her friends try to rebrand themselves as popular kids now they are in sophomore year.

Together they work to reinvent themselves, with Devi striving to be with Ben Paxton hall-Yoshida (Darren Barnet) who she has a crush on.

Devi loses sight of her friends as she pursues Paxton, with Fab (Lee Rodriguez) and Eleanor (Ramona Young) taking a ‘friendship break’ from Devi after she failed to be there for them when they needed her most. 

Things look up for Devi when she and Paxton share a kiss, one of the reasons she pulls away from her friends.

After falling out with her family, Devi moves in with an unexpected ally – Ben (Jaren Lewison).

Devi and her family are not speaking when they reveal to her that they are considering moving back to India, meaning Devi would lose her life in America.

Ben provides Devi with all she needs to stay away from home, giving her a room and Kamala (Richa Moorjani) bringing her school supplies.

Desperate to stay in America, Devi starts to look for work, hoping she will be able to stay on her own merit.

She struggles, however, not even knowing how a credit card works, with Ben and Paxton now entering a love triangle to win her over.

Eventually, she picks Ben, realising that he cares more for her despite the fact she always had eyes for Paxton.

Devi’s mum Nalini (Poorna Jagannathan) then visits Dr Ryan (Niecy Nash) and admits to her that she is finding the situation with her daughter hard.

She breaks down in Dr Ryan’s office, admitting that she understands why Devi is upset.

The doctor then suggests she shows Devi this vulnerable side so she can understand what her mother is also going through.

Nalini wants to reconnect with her daughter and goes to Ben’s house to reach out to her.

At first, Devi doesn’t want to know, but Ben, with the help of Fab and Eleanor, convince her it is the right thing to do, which also heals the wounds between the group of friends.

Eventually, with the help of her friends, she reaches out to her mum in Malibu and the two apologise to one another.

The season ends with Devi kissing Ben while Paxton is trying to call her, showing that she has moved on and accepted who she is and who she wants to be with.

Netflix has dropped a trailer for season two ahead of its release later this week, with fans rushing to the comments to share their excitement for the new season.

One fan said: “I feel like the therapist could have her own spin-off where she just deals with various teen drama characters each week.”

Another fan added: “Can we talk about the pro cons list where Paxton pros are all about his body while Ben’s are about his personality? The choice is obvious.”

A third fan commented: “Devi’s Mum is the best character in this show, no argument.”

Never Have I Ever season two will be available to watch on Netflix from July 15.
