Why is Never Have I Ever Season 5 canceled?

Netflix renewed one of the best teen drama series Never Have I Ever for its fourth season in March 2022, the same time it confirmed that the upcoming season will be the fourth and final season. The creator of the series Minda Kailing justified her decision of wrapping up the series in one of the interviews with Entertainment Tonight, she told, “Four seasons for a high school show felt like it made sense. They can’t be in high school forever. We’ve seen those shows. Like you have been in high school for 10 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 further said, “Some things are built-in doing a high school show that felt like, Okay, this is time. But 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.” She concluded by saying, “We really told the story of a 15-year-old girl and that felt like the perfect amount of time.”

However, the fans are still trying to get over this sad news, but let us all draw our attention to what John McEnroe said towards the end of the final episode, “So, this is John McEnroe live, signing off. For now.” This leaves room for the show to be taken forward if ever, considered to return back in the future.

But for now, all we can do is hope. So why not let us talk about season 4?
