'Never Have I Ever' Drops On Netflix On Monday And 'Sex Education' Fans Will Love It

'Never Have I Ever' Drops On Netflix On Monday And 'Sex Education' Fans Will Love It

Netflix knows how to make a great high school teen drama - and the streamer is continuing its successful run with its latest series, Never Have I Ever.

Landing on the streamer on Monday, Mindy Kaling's brand new coming-of-age comedy is said to be about the complicated life of a modern-day first-generation Indian American teenage girl.

Inspired by creator Kaling's own childhood, the series follows Devi Vishwakumar, played by newcomer Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, an overachieving high school student who has a short fuse that gets her into all sorts of difficult situations.

Following a traumatic year, Devi masterminds a plan to take her and her friends from uncool to popular. "Sophomore year is going to be our year, I can feel it," Devi tells her friends Eleanor (Ramona Young) and Fabiola (Lee Rodruigez) in a trailer.

"We're rebranding. I've chosen attainable yet status-enhancing people for each of us to date," she tells them.

Devi's plan to get popular includes heightening their status in school and, crucially, losing their virginities. We're even teased with a Cady Heron-style glow up; "you look like an Indian Kardashian!" her friend tells her.

Going off the trailer, Never Have I Ever looks set to be a hit with fans of Netflix's super successful teen drama Sex Education, while we're even sensing some major Mean Girls vibes. What's not to love?

Mindy Kaling (The Mindy Project, The Office) acts as executive producer, while Lang Fisher serves as co-executive producer, showrunner and writer.

Having only acted in stage productions, the 17-year-old beat 15,000 other hopefuls for the part of Devi after having two auditions for the role. How cool?

Never Have I Ever lands on Monday and we are 100 per cent game.

Another one to get excited about is Netflix's brand new teen rom-com The Half Of It. Landing on the streamer on 1st May, it follows introverted by misunderstood student Ellie Chu, who lives in the small town of Squahamish with her father.

Ellie (played by Leah Lewis) is often teased by her classmates, but runs a side hustle writing their essays for them.

However, the guitar-playing wallflower's life takes an unexpected turn when a popular jock asks her to take on a different writing task: love letter writing.

Ellie, at first reluctantly, agrees to write love letters for Paul (Daniel Diemer), who is madly in love with school beauty Aster Flores (Alexxis Lemire). But things get complicated when Ellie discovers she, too, has feelings for the person she's been ghosting writing letters for.

Netflix, keep the teen flicks comin'.
