Filming for the second season of Mindy Kaling's hit Netflix show Never Have I Ever has begun.

The cast of the first season Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, Ramona Young, Lee Rodriguez, Darren Barnet, Jaren Lewison, Poorna Jagannathan and Richa Moorjani will all reprise their roles.

The coming-of-age drama centres on the complicated life of Devi (Ramakrishnan) a modern, first-generation Indian American teenage girl.

On Monday the streaming service announced that Megan Suri is joining the cast in a recurring guest role. The Atypical actor will play Aneesa, a new student at Sherman Oaks High whose confidence will pose a threat to Devi, reports Deadline.

In a post on Instagram, the cast, including Megan, shared their thoughts on getting back to work.


The show won Best Comedy Show at the People's Choice Awards earlier this month.
