The second season of "Never Have I Ever," Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher's coming-of-age dramedy, premiered on Thursday. The Netflix Original tells the story of Devi Vishwakumar (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan), a Desi teenager growing up in an affluent Los Angeles neighborhood.

Ramakrishnan tweeted out to all the viewers (AKA her besties), celebrating the release.

In the first season, Devi navigates high school life: social status, friendship, cultural identity, romance and sex. All while dealing with the grief over the loss of her beloved father. John McEnroe narrated Devi's innermost thoughts, - for reasons revealed in the season finale - while Andy Samberg narrated an episode focusing on Devi's academic rival turned romantic interest, Ben (Jaren Lewison).

The show cleverly explored the trials and tribulations of an Indian-American teenage girl through a cast of quirky, relatable, sometimes selfish characters, which caught the attention - and hearts - of viewers.

This time around, Devi becomes part of her first love triangle between her, Ben, and her longtime crush, Paxton (Darren Barnet). Staying true to the show's narrative style, the third episode of the season centered on Paxton, is narrated by none other than supermodel Gigi Hadid.

"Believe it or not, I relate to this kid," she says, addressing the question about why she would be narrating the story of a popular guy and high school heartthrob. "We're both constantly underestimated because people only see us as sex symbols."

This season also explores Devi's feelings of jealousy towards a new classmate and possible frenemy, Aneesa (Megan Suri), another Desi girl that her classmates refer to as "Devi 2.0." We also get to see Fabiola (Lee Rodriguez), one of Devi's best friends, struggle with coming out to her family and finding her place within the lesbian community.

Devi's mother, Nalini (Poorna Jagnnathan), gets a romantic interest of her own, too, forcing her to reflect on her readiness to move on from her deceased husband.

Heavy topics, for sure, but this show knows how to bring a sense of lightness and whimsy to the profound and sometimes heart-wrenching. Kaling infuses her own humorous spirit into Devi, and the rest of the characters, bringing them to life in a way only she can.

To celebrate the premiere, members of the cast, including Ramakrishnan, Suri, Rodriguez and Ramona Young, who plays Devi's other best friend, Eleanor, will be holding two events this weekend in New York City.

The second season of "Never Have I Ever" has 10 episodes, just like the first, all of which are available to stream on Netflix today.
