Is there anything Mindy Kaling can’t do? Writing, acting, comedy, drama, books, movies, shows, Instagram Stories… She can do it all, and make us double over in laughter along the way. After debuting Four Weddings and a Funeral on Hulu last year, Kaling returns with her newest television project on Netflix. Never Have I Ever leans semi-autobiographical for Kaling, but still has a universal relatability that will have us devouring the series in one sitting this April.

Maitreyi Ramakrishnan stars in Never Have I Ever as high school sophomore Devi, a first-generation Indian American attempting to come of age amid a complicated life. The over-achieving teenager also has something of a short fuse, which has a tendency to get her stuck in tricky situations with her family, friends, and, of course, boys. The hilarious comedy stars a newcomer and features the perspective of Kaling’s experience growing up, making for essential viewing for all those who can relate to Devi as well as fans of Kaling’s smart and sharp comedy.

Never Have I Ever comes from creator Mindy Kaling, who first gained stardom as a writer and performer on The Office before creating and starring in The Mindy Project. Since then, Kaling has written and/or starred in a number of projects, but her latest comes to Netflix with frequent collaborator Lang Fisher acting as executive producer and showrunner. Without question, Never Have I Ever should rank at the top of your watch list when its 10-episode first season begins streaming on April 27.
