Later, she appeared in Judd Apatow's film Trainwreck, alongside Bill Hader and Amy Schumer, and on the television series Problems.

Will Netflix Release a Fifth Season of Never Have I Ever?
As Never Have I Ever co-creators Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher previously announced the series' renewal for a fourth and final season ahead of the Season 3 launch in March 2022. In response to the revelation, Erin Underhill, President of Universal Television, said to Deadline,
Four seasons of Never Have I Ever is truly exciting and a little bittersweet because, as a loyal fan, I’d love Devi’s journey to go on forever. But just like high school, all great things must come to an end. A big shout out to our fearless Cricket Queens, Mindy and Lang, and our exceptional cast and crew, who have authentically captured the emotional rollercoaster ride that defines our teenage years. We can’t wait to experience all of the messiness, the LOLs and the tears that will surely unfold in Devi’s senior year.
There will not be Never Have I Ever season 5.

While there will be no Never Have I Ever Season 5, the fact that Devi and her friends finish their senior year of high school in Season 4 after we've spent the series watching them navigate their formative teen years provides some closure, making saying goodbye feel more natural. Sherman Oaks will be missed, but Devi went out with a bang and a boink.
