Never Have I Ever Season 2 Announced, Plus New Cursed & Fatal Affair Videos

-

Netflix is keeping the announcements coming with the news that the critically-acclaimed comedy series Never Have I Ever has been renewed for a second season. Maitreyi Ramakrishnan will reprise her lead role as high school student Devi Vishwakumar.

Never Have I Ever is a new coming-of-age comedy about the complicated life of a modern-day first-generation Indian American teenage girl. The series stars newcomer, Maitreyi Ramakrishnan as Devi, an overachieving high school sophomore who has a short fuse that gets her into difficult situations.

The series is co-created by Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher. Fisher serves as writer, executive producer, and showrunner. The Universal Television project is also executive produced by 3 Arts Entertainment’s Howard Klein and David Miner.

The returning cast members include Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, Poorna Jagannathan, Richa Moorjani, Jaren Lewison, Darren Barnet, Lee Rodriguez and Ramona Young. Never Have I Ever is produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, in association with 3 Arts Entertainment, Original Langster, and Kaling International.

Switching gears, the streaming service is also taking us behind the scenes of Cursed, the 10-episode series lalunching on the streaming service on July 17. Cursed is based on the New York Times bestselling book (check price at Amazon) by Tom Wheeler and Frank Miller.

Cursed is a re-imagination of the Arthurian legend, told through the eyes of Nimue, a young woman with a mysterious gift who is destined to become the powerful (and tragic) Lady of the Lake. After her mother’s death, she finds an unexpected partner in Arthur, a humble mercenary, in a quest to find Merlin and deliver an ancient sword.

Over the course of her journey, Nimue will become a symbol of courage and rebellion against the terrifying Red Paladins, and their complicit King Uther. Cursed is a coming-of-age story whose themes are familiar to our own time: the obliteration of the natural world, religious terror, senseless war, and finding the courage to lead in the face of the impossible.

Starring in the series are Katherine Langford (13 Reasons Why, Love, Simon), Devon Terrell (Barry), Gustaf Skarsgård (Westworld, Vikings), Daniel Sharman (Fear the Walking Dead, Medici), Peter Mullan (Ozark), Lily Newmark (Pin Cushion), Shalom Brune-Franklin (The State, Our Girl), Sebastian Armesto (Poldark, Broadchurch), Emily Coates (Flack), Catherine Walker (Versailles, The Delinquent Season) and Billy Jenkins (The Crown, Holmes & Watson, Humans).

And Netflix has released the trailer and key art for Fatal Affair, the dramatic thriller releasing on July 16. Directed by Peter Sullivan from a script by Sullivan and Rasheeda Garner, the film stars Nia Long, Omar Epps and Stephen Bishop.

In the movie, Ellie (Nia Long) tries to mend her marriage with her husband Marcus (Stephen Bishop) after a brief encounter with an old friend, David (Omar Epps), only to find that David is more dangerous and unstable than she’d realized.
