The next best thing on Netflix aka Mindy Kaling’s Never Have I Ever Is arriving on Netflix at midnight.

To help you take a chill pill and relax this quarantine, the latest coming of age show Never Have I Ever is coming to Netflix on Monday, April 27 at 3 a.m. ET.

Created and written by Mindy Kaling, Never Have I Ever is a classic coming of age series aiming for an audience consisting of teens and young adults but with a twist. The show even though not autobiographical, is inspired by Mindy’s own childhood story and this fact alone is enough to get her fans hyped up for the upcoming show.

Starring newcomer Maitreyi Ramakrishnan as Devi Vishwakumar as the lead, the show will follow the “complicated life of a modern-day first-generation Indian-American teenage girl.” The trailers released by Netflix don’t seem like anything we have NOT seen before but since it’s Kaling’s work, we believe it is worth giving it a shot. And, just to put it here, an open audition was held to pick the lead actress and Maitreyi was chosen out of 15,000 people! That’s some dedication right there.

In the trailer, Devi can be seen sitting in front of Hindu idols and praying to them on her first day of school. She puts forward three wishes – 1. She wants an invite to a party with alcohol and drugs 2. She would love to have thinner body hair (don’t we all?) and lastly, 3. A non-nerdy boyfriend.

Devi and her friends want to turn their sophomore year into “their year” and in order to do that, their plan is to date “attainable yet status-enhancing” people and “pop the cherries.” If teen romcoms are your thing, Never Have I Ever will surely keep you entertained with its 10 episodes.

It also stars Poorna Jagannathan as Nalini Vishwakumar, John McEnroe as Narrator, Richa Shukla as Kamala, Ramona Young as Eleanor, Sendhil Ramamurthy as Mohan Venkatesan, Lee Rodriguez as Fabiola, Darren Barnet as Paxton Hall-Yoshida, and Jaren Lewison as Ben Gross. Buckle up for some steamy teen romance at midnight tonight, only on Netflix.
