Maitreyi Ramakrishnan is opening up about a possible season two for her breakout Netflix show, Never Have I Ever.
Speaking with Variety, the 18-year-old actress has some ideas of what she’d like to see in the potential new season.
“Three main things — understanding that she needs to be more appreciative of her family and her friends because her friends do a lot for her. Her friends really are her day ones,” Maitreyi shared. “And also understanding where her mother’s coming from.”
She continues, “That is something that we’ll be able to have a lot of audiences relate to, understanding where our parents are coming from even though they might not go about doing certain things the best way possible.”
Another thing that Maitreyi would like to see the show tackle is “the idea of approaching that grief — confronting it, having that battle, even though it’s something uncomfortable to think about, [but] actually just running toward it and facing it, dealing with it head on.”
The third thing is Devi “embracing her culture because that is so important in a world where identity is everything. It’s how you portray yourself. It’s how you show yourself to the world and how everybody will view you, but also how you accept yourself. And I think if Devi does those magic three, she might be a little bit more at peace with herself.”
If you missed it, the show was #1 in a ton of countries on Netflix. See co-creator Mindy Kaling‘s reaction here!
