Your favourite faces are returning! Mindy Kaling's Netflix series Never Have I Ever has officially been renewed for season two. The adventures of Devi and her pals continue as she navigates the ups and downs of high school.
The cast got together for a Zoom call posted by the show's official Twitter account where lead star Maitreyi Ramakrishnan announced the joyous news.
The Mississauga born actress was joined by co-stars Darren Barnet (who plays Paxton), Jaren Lewison (Ben), Poorna Jagannathan (Nalini), Richa Moorjani (Kamala), Ramona Young (Eleanor), and Lee Rodriguez (Fabiola).
"Hey guys, thanks for hopping on the Zoom so quick," she said to Rodriguez and Young. "Once everybody's on, I've got some awesome news to tell you guys."
In the hilarious one-minute-long clip, the actress behind Devi pops up sporting some new bangs that her castmates immediately notice.
Each star got so distracted by Ramakrishnan's hair with her on-screen mom asking, "New quarantine look? Did you cut it yourself?"
Lewison added, "It seems crazy to get us together to talk about your bangs?"
However, Ramakrishnan proclaimed, "It's not about the bangs! I just wanted to tell you guys that Never Have I Ever is being renewed for a season two."
The cast immediately broke out into applause and celebration.
