Megan Suri has joined the Netflix comedy series Never Have I Ever as a fresh face in season 2. The young star who has previously appeared in ABC’s "Fresh Off the Boat" is set to play Aneesa, a new Indian student at Sherman Oaks High, whose confidence and radiance will pose an immediate threat to Devi.
This comes as filming continues for the second season of Never Have I Ever. The announcement comes through a video of the show's cast from the sets of season 2.
Suri played the daughter of Mina (Preity Zinta) in ABC’s "Fresh Off the Boat". Suri has also starred in the feature film Valentine’s Day, HBO’s The Brink, ABC's How to Get Away with Murder, and Netflix’s Atypical as well as booking her first title role in the feature The Miseducation of Bindu alongside Priyanka Bose and David Arquette.
When the filming began for season 2, the show's co-creator Mindy Kaling said filming on the second season was going well despite the pandemic. “There was no hesitation to get back to work, the cast were all so excited to get back to work, Covid is damned,” she said. “Our production has done a great job, I had to come in 20 minutes early to have my Covid test and it’s changed the face of craft services, but that’s pretty much it.”
Last week, “Never Have I Ever” won the best comedy show of the year 2020 at E Network People’s Choice Awards. Mindy Kaling and Maitreyi Ramakrishnan were present on the stage to collect the award.
“Never Have I Ever” premiered on April 27 on Netflix this year, and season 2 is currently in production. Netflix renewed the series for season two back in July, and it is one of the only few shows which premiered this year and have been renewed for an upcoming season by Netflix. Season 2 is likely to return on Netflix by late spring 2021.
Season 2 will see Maitreyi Ramakrishnan reprise her lead role as high school student Devi Vishwakumar alongside the returning cast including Poorna Jagannathan(who plays Devi’s mother Dr. Nalini Vishwakumar), Richa Moorjani (who plays her cousin Kamala), Jaren Lewison, Darren Barnet, Lee Rodriguez, and Ramona Young.
Lang Fisher serves as writer, executive producer, and showrunner with Kaling exec producing alongside 3 Arts Entertainment’s Howard Klein and David Miner. It is produced by Universal Television in association with 3 Arts Entertainment, Original Langster, and Kaling International.
