Never Have I Ever Season 5 Release Date – Is It Coming To Netflix?

Never Have I Ever Season 5 Release Date – Is It Coming To Netflix?

Never Have I Ever was a huge hit for Netflix when it was released in April 2020 with Netflix reporting that it was viewed by 40 million households globally.

A coming of age teen drama, it follows Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan), a typical first-generation Indian American teenager.

She is trying to find her place in the world and balance her traditional Indian culture with her modern American lifestyle.


A relatable and fun character for many young people who are trying to find their way in life, it was so successful that Netflix quickly renewed it for a second season. And a third. And a fourth!

Each season was worth the wait, especially as professional tennis player John McEnroe mostly narrates the show for Devi, with one of the episodes narrated by Andy Samberg for Ben and another by Gigi Hadid for Paxton. Fun twist that only adds to the delight of the show!

But even though the shows is technically over, the door is still open for Never Have I Ever season 5…

Never Have I Ever Season 5 Release Date

Now that season 4 of Never Have I Ever has dropped and Devi's high school story is over, it looks like we've said goodbye to Devi.

She's at Princeton, is dating Ben and all of our favourite characters have gone their separate ways.

Netflix confirmed that the show would end after the fourth season BUT two little words have given fans a glimmer of hope that we may yet see Devi back on our screens.

In the final scene, narrator John McEnroe says…

“This is John McEnroe live from Princeton, New Jersey signing off. For now…“.

FOR NOW!!! There's even a twinkle in his voice when he says it! Could that mean Devi's story isn't as over as we thought it was? Will there be a Princeton spin off??

Soooooo many questions but as as you can imagine, very few answers. Netflix have made no announcement about Never Have I Ever season 5, or any other shows related to it.

But we love Devi so our fingers and toes are all crossed that creators Lang Fisher and Mindy Kaling will get back to the drawing board and make it happen.

As always, if there's even a hint of more to come we will update you. For now, though, it's time to rewatch the evolution of Devi Vishwakumar as she makes her way through four rocky years at Sherman Oaks high school.

Never Have I Ever Season 1 Recap

Created by Mindy Kaling, Never Have I Ever is about a 15-year-old Indian-American girl from Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles. After her father, Mohan (Sendhil Ramamurthy) dies suddenly, Devi loses the sensation in her legs due to the psychological trauma of his death.

Finding herself unable to walk for three months, one day she miraculously recovers and stands on her legs in an attempt to see her crush Paxton Hall-Yoshida (Darren Barnet, Love Hard).

And so begins Devi's attempts to change her social status and lose her virginity, but friends, family, and feelings do not make it easy for her.

Over the course of season 1, Devi's life changes a lot when she discovers that she likes not just Paxton but also Ben (Jaren Lewison), despite the difficult start to their friendship.

However, Devi does not make things easy for herself and while trying to decide which boy she likes more, she almost loses the chance to be with either of them.

We left season 1 with Devi kissing Ben while Paxton leaves her a message while waiting at her front door.

Never Have I Ever Season 2 Recap

Picking up where the first season ended, Devi is faced with a choice between Paxton or Ben. But in true Devi style, she ends up dating both of them at the same time.

And the whole back and forth thing continues for much of the season with Paxton even getting hit by a car because of her.

When a new Indian girl, Aneesa, starts at the school, it really throws Devi who then becomes convinced that she will hook up with Ben. So what does Devi do? She starts an awful rumour that gets two other girls suspended and nearly ends up with Aneesa transferring.

Throw in an angry Paxton, who is failing school, her mother moving on after her father's death, issues with her friends and a whole load of other subplots and you end up with Devi and Paxton breaking up, then making up with a few emotional breakdowns in between.

Never Have I Ever Season 3 Recap

It was the day that Devi had been waiting for her whole life. She finally walked into school hand-in-hand with Paxton, officially dating him.

But this is Devi and with insecurity creeping in, especially when Paxton's ex makes a return, she soon finds herself unable to handle a mature relationship. And she's single again.

Not to worry, a new guy is quickly on the scene, with Nirdesh looking like a decent replacement. And her mother actually lets her date him!!

But Devi's path to true love doesn't ever run smooth and by the end of season 3, she has made her peace with Paxton as his friend and said goodbye to Nirdesh.

The cliffhanger?? Realising that it has been Ben all along, she arrives at his bedroom door…

Never Have I Ever Season 4 Recap

Devi has slept with Ben Gross. It didn't go well and after a bit of miscommunication Ben ends up dating Margot and Devi hooks up with Ethan Morales.

That ends when he robs the Princeton recruiter, nearly ending Devi's chances of getting into her dream college.

Princeton plays the central role in season 4, when Devi's early application is deferred, before she is put on the wait list.

So single and with no college, things aren't looking great for her senior year in high school.

Thankfully, everything comes good in the end and Devi heads off to Jersey to start her college life. Ben heads to Columbia, Paxton goes back to college to become a teacher, Fabiola goes to Howard University and Eleanor decides to become a director.

So it all works out in the end. But can college be as easy as Devi thinks? Maybe we'll find out if creators have a change of heart and give us Never Have I Ever season 5!

While we wait to find out, you could always check out these other amazing shows like Never Have I Ever to keep you entertained…
