What will Never Have I Ever season 4 be about?

Though Netflix hasn't revealed the official synopsis for the upcoming season, the season 3 finale does give us a pretty good idea of what's to come. The season ends with Paxton (Darren Barnet) and the class of 2022 at graduation, but it's likely that season 4 could take place during that summer.

Following the cliffhanger of Ben (Jaren Lewison) and Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) finally getting together, it's likely that the new season will also explore the aftermath of their hookup and the possible rekindling of their relationship as they enter their senior year together.

During an interview with PEOPLE, Lewison teased that the final season will also show the characters mature and grow up in a lot of ways; "it's the best season we've ever made," he declared.

"Season 4 is the most hilarious, heartwarming, witty, beautiful creation that I've ever been a part of," he explained. "Because you get so connected to these characters and the journeys that they go on in season 4, you're watching them grow up before your eyes."

"It's so special seeing the people that they become and the maturity that they gain, and it's written so beautifully," he continued.. "I just know that it's going to mean so much to so many people to see what these characters go through and how they transition through those big life-changing moments."

Why is Never Have I Ever ending?

During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Kaling explained that she always envisioned the show having four seasons. "Four seasons for a high school show felt like it made sense," she said. "They can't be in high school forever. We've seen those shows. Like, you've been in high school for 12 years. What is going on here? Also, the actors get older and it starts looking insane that a 34-year-old is playing a 15-year-old."

She added that she also felt the show's storyline was at a natural stopping point: "The truth is, we got to know the characters. The great thing about doing it on Netflix is that we got to tell stories that you wouldn't necessarily be able to tell in traditional network shows and so we feel good. We really told the story of this 15-year-old girl and that felt like the perfect amount of time."
