Never Have I Ever Season 2: Plot
The first season of Never Have I Ever left behind many storylines open-ended with a lot of many questions. It will be about whether Devi would embark on the romance with Ben, the former school nemesis, after this pair had a lip-locking moment. While Devi was kissing Ben, she receives a message from Paxton, who has finally decided that he want to try things with her even though she is a dorky exterior. In addition to this, there are questions about the romance of Ben with Shira after it seems unclear whether they both have split up or still in the same position.
Season 2 is likely to have more than this love triangle. It will go deeper into Devi’s grief after she lost her father. Fans might expect Devi to fall into embarrassing moments, some of which will be created by her own. Else, there can be more culture clashes. Devi’s mother, Nalini, will also be struggling after losing her husband to cope with her immense grief. Also, she is worried about upbringing her daughter, who is a teen. Kamala’s love life is more likely to get enough time on the screen, and Prashant made a decision that says that they will keep seeing each other on the low without the knowledge of their parents.
Scope for New Characters in Season 2
We are expecting much scope for the new characters as well as Fabiola in the series. She might explore her lesbian identity and the relationship with Eve, while Eleanor will continue to struggle with her mother as they are sharing a complex relationship. This new upcoming season will surely open the door for the new characters depending upon its direction. On the other side, Ramakrishnan said that she is rooting for her character and is hoping that she could deal with her grief.
