Never Have I Ever Season 2 Doubles Down on the Romance and Valuable Life Lessons

Written by lucks

This is a spoiler free review of Season 2 of Never Have I Ever. You can read on even if you haven’t watched the new episodes yet.

The second season of the hit teen show was heartfelt, hilarious, and incredibly binge-able (I finished all 10 episodes in just one day!)

Season 2 picks up right where season 1 left off, with Devi trying to decide who to date: Paxton or Ben. Without giving anything away, I will say that the writers did a good job of making it a difficult choice for Devi, and I could feel myself vacillating between the two options with her, changing sides sometimes multiple times in the same episode.

The second season was just as funny as season 1 with clever one-liners and relatable mishaps, but this batch of episodes also did a great job of showcasing the show’s more serious side and dealt with issues such as anorexia, Japanese interment camps, gaslighting/manipulative relationships, and more.

The show excels at showing how to deal with issues and overcome common teenage problems without being too overbearing or heavy-handed in its messaging. Even though the subject matter and life lessons tend to be geared towards teens, Never Have I Ever is still very enjoyable for adults and has something for everyone.

I was also impressed by the fact that they filmed season 2 during the pandemic under COVID restrictions because you couldn’t tell any difference at all on screen. There were still crowds of teens in the hallways, parties and large gatherings, and plenty of kissing in season 2. This is reassuring for other movies and TV shows that filmed during 2020 because the last thing we want while watching our preferred form of escapism is a reminder of COVID and how awful the last year and a half have been because of it.

Never Have I Ever manages to stay fresh and exciting throughout the 10-episode season and keeps you pressing ‘next episode’ again and again. I would highly recommend this show to anyone who is looking for a fun, witty, heartwarming TV show that you can easily binge in a weekend.

Season 1 and 2 of Never Have I Ever are now streaming on Netflix.
