It stars Maitreyi Ramakrishnan as an Indian American high school student dealing with the death of her father.

Former professional tennis player John McEnroe is the main narrator and the second season arrived last month, featuring Ramakrishnan’s Devi in a love triangle.

Announcing a third instalment, The Office star Kaling said: “HI-FIVES ALL AROUND!! We are coming back for season 3 of @neverhaveiever! We love you guys for watching the show and can’t wait to make some more for you!”
