While the story technically revolves around Devi, the Vishwakumars are equally entertaining to watch. 

Never Have I Ever Season 3 Review

This season is better than the previous one, with a lot more emotions and a lot less bland comedy. Devi’s character growth is finally visible in this season. She discovers an emotional side in her, even if she messes up a lot of the time. The many love interests that the makers have provided for Devi are not at all a disappointment, but rather a surprise because it helps her character grow as a person. And not only is the love interest special this season, but the mother-daughter duo also bickers a lot less this time. This is the most growth that the viewers will witness. 

The desi elements are not to be forgotten as the makers do not forget to infuse this modern American show with Indian lead characters.

With a little backstory to Ben and Paxton, they too emerge as individuals and not just Devi’s love interest. They each present some strong stories of their own, which helps the viewers in engaging with the characters.  

The season concludes on a delightful note yet the audience yearns for more. This is a great way to conclude the season and leave the anticipation for the fourth and final season of Never Have I Ever
