When will Never Have I Ever season 2 be released?
Previously, Netflix releases would be dependent on when the show got the go-ahead and the amount of post-production involved.
Most Netflix shows have a turnaround of about a year but due to the coronavirus pandemic and the ensuing lockdown, film and television productions across the world have been halted.
Never Have I Ever is going to be starting production in November but the process could be a slow one due to filming restrictions created by the coronavirus pandemic.
According to Variety, there’s no clear start date due to the pandemic but it is hoped the show will be getting underway soon.
Hopefully, this means the series could be out at some point in 2021.

What can we expect in terms of story for season 2?
There are so many unfinished stories in season 1 that are not solved yet.
Fear and confusion are what drive Devi, who spends the first season angry at the world after the shocking death of her father (Sendhil Ramamurthy).
Devi is a layered and complex character who is dealing with her grief over the death of her father, figuring out how her Indian culture fits into her life, and going through all the things that come with being a teenager, like sex and friendships and fighting with the authority figures in your life.
