Mindy Kaling Explains Why 'Never Have I Ever' Has To Come to an End After Season 4

Season 3 recently premiered on Netflix.

If you’re a fan of the Netflix‘s Never Have I Ever, prepare to say goodbye to Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) and the rest of the gang after the Season 4 finale. According to co-creator Mindy Kaling, the coming-of-age series will only be four seasons long to properly commemorate Devi’s teen years.

“Unfortunately, young people grow up and you can’t be 17 forever,” Kaling told E! News. “I’m really happy with where we ended with the stories and with the characters’ growth. It was a very emotional finale. I truly love this world and what the actors brought to these characters. It made it one of the best creative experiences of my life.”

While Kaling would love to continue doing the show past Devi’s senior year, it just wouldn’t fit the plot. “When you launch a show, it’s really hard to figure everybody out. Once you have them, you’re like, ‘40 episodes? That’s it?,’” she explained. “I love the character Devi, I love her family, I love her friends. I love this actress so much. I would do the show until she was a grandma.”

Kaling and her co-creator, Lang Fisher, have discussed the possibility of bringing back Never Have I Ever in the future, but they don’t see it working. “We did talk about it, but that’s a hard jump to make,” Lang added. “With the teen shows that have done it in the past, it’s always a little hard. It’s hard to introduce a whole new world. It’s hard to get people to care about them as much as you cared in the first iteration. It just felt like if we ever wanted to come back to these characters again, we would just have to start with a whole new show. It just felt a little tricky to make that leap.”

Season 1 to 3 of Never Have I Ever are currently streaming on Netflix.
