Netflix's 'Never Have I Ever' Was Filmed On Wisteria Lane
If you're missing the candy-coloured, picket-fence, window box-adorned homes from Wisteria Lane, the fictional street that provided the setting for all the drama in noughties hit series Desperate Housewives, then look no further than Netflix's latest offering.
Eagled-eyed fans who have been watching the streamer's brand new coming-of-age comedy Never Have I Ever have spotted some of it is actually filmed on Wisteria Lane! Well, kind of...
Mindy Kaling's new drama is set in the fictional neighbourhood of Sherman Oaks, California, while the make-believe Wisteria Lane is set in the fictional town of Fairview, Eagle State. However both were *actually* filmed at Universal Studios backlot in Los Angeles.
Fans have spotted that protagonist Devi's huge yellow home is actually the OG home of Susan Mayer in Desperate Housewives, which we all so desperately dreamed of living in back in the day (and still do tbh). Cool, eh?!
It's a welcome hit of nostalgia for fans who poured over the TV series, which centred on the complex lives and relationships of a close-knit group of housewives living on the same street, when it aired between 2004 and 2012.
But while the luxe All-American homes we see in the background might be the same, that's where the similarities end.

Never Have I Ever focuses on the complicated life of a modern-day first-generation Indian American teenage girl, Devi Vishwakumar, played by newcomer Maitreyi Ramakrishnan.
Devi is an overachieving high school student, and despite having the best intentions, she 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 Eleanor (Ramona Young) and Fabiola (Lee Rodruigez) from uncool to popular, all while trying to navigate and process the usual trials and tribulations of teenage life, including a huge crush on her classmate, Paxton.
Devi's plan to get popular includes heightening their status in school, undergoing glow-ups and, crucially, losing their virginities.
The series, which landed on Netflix earlier this month, is already getting rave reviews, with fans saying they watch all 10 episodes in one sitting, while others are already demanding a season 2.
Yep, we can't wait to binge this.
