Never Have I Ever - Common

Never Have I Ever: Common teases what’s next for Dr Jackson and Nalini romance

The musician's hunky doctor character hit it off with Devi's mother

Common has shared his hopes of returning to Never Have I Ever as the smooth-talking Dr Jackson. 

The rapper and actor joined season two of the series as a potential new love interest for Nalini (Poorna Jagannathan), Devi’s mother who is still coming to terms with the death of her husband, Mohan (Sendhil Ramamurthy). 

While eventually it didn’t work out, Common is hopeful of Dr Jackson’s return. 

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, he said: “It would be really fun. I would love for Dr. Jackson to come back at some point because Nalini acknowledged that it wasn’t the right time.

“Timing is a lot. It’s gotta be the right time. From what Dr. Jackson provided in her life, he might be back. Who knows.” 

Dr Jackson proved to be a sore spot for Nalini and Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan), who ended up snooping on her mum to catch her out.

It’s something that Common understands, and adds that it’s harder because Mohan is so likeable. 

“There was something very endearing about him. In watching season 1, I loved seeing him on-screen so I could see where he would be that Hot Dad,” he said. “But I felt like, you know, I’m just going to be who I am, bring what Dr. Jackson would bring.
