Here's everything we know about the To All The Boys I've Loved Before sequel in the works

Ready for a second dose of Lara and Peter?

Spoilers ahead if you haven’t read To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before or watched the series of the same name on Netflix …

IF YOU FOUND yourself falling in love with Lara Jean and Peter over the summer, good news – a sequel to To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is imminent.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a sequel is “one of the first movies being discussed” as part of Paramount Pictures and Netflix’s newly minted multi-picture deal. It’s an interesting one, given most studios usually opt to keep their movies off Netflix in favour of developing a streaming service of their own.

But enough about that – this is what we know so far about the second movie.

The cast are very much on board with starring in the sequel, but they haven’t officially signed on to anything yet.

A couple of days ago, Lana Condor spoke on the topic of a sequel at the Vulture Festival and said, “The whole cast would love to do it.”

So, at least you won’t have to worry about any dodgy recasting.

Will the sequel follow the canon books? That’s unclear as of right now.

The literary sequel to TATB, entitled P.S. I Still Love You, follows Lara Jean and Peter attempting to navigate their very new, very real relationship. 

To make things even more complicated, she receives a letter from a boy from her past. As he returns to her life, Lara Jean’s feelings for him do too. 

Loads of drama, basically. How exciting. TATB stuck largely to the book for the first two thirds of the movie. However, the ending with the hot tub incident is actually borrowed from the second book.

And if you were paying attention during the credits, you might have seen another borrowed scene from the second book. John Ambrose McClaren – the boy Lara Jean attended Model U.N. with – shows up on the Coveys’ doorstep with a bouquet of flowers and the letter Lara Jean wrote to him.

Juicy, right? In fairness though, director Susan Johnson’s heavily hinted about this potential upscuttle in the sequel back in august. 

“Relationships are hard to navigate and they’ll find themselves in one. And they’ll discover what the next person might bring in John Ambrose McClaren,” she told ET.

Ok, so when are we getting this sequel?

Details are still fairly scarce on the ground, but don’t expect it before the end of 2019. DailyEdge.ie will keep you posted in the mean time.
