‘Never Have I Ever’ Season Two and the Beauty of Tearing Up the “Immigrant Mom” Trope

When Never Have I Ever debuted on Netflix last spring, I wasn’t alone as an Asian American woman who found the premise thrillingly relatable: A 15-year-old girl pursues the swim team’s mixed-race abs god while navigating her identity as the daughter of immigrants, and wholesome chaos ensues.
