To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before was one of Netflix’s most popular movies in 2018. It was based on a novel by Jenny Han and focusses on a character called Lara Jean. Lara wrote letters to all the boys she had ever loved, and kept them, without the intention of ever sending them. But her life gets turned on its head when her letters get sent.
Fortunately, Jenny Han has already written two sequels to the original book, and the first of these is now being made into a film by Netflix. It is now set to drop on 12 February 2020, just in time for Valentines! Even though this film has not yet landed, based on the popularity of the original, Netflix has already wrapped filming on the third and final film, which will likely be called Always and Forever, Lara Jean.
For the second film, Lana Condor, who played our protagonist Lara, will be back, as will Noah Centineo, who plays Peter Kavinsky in the films. Pretty much all of the original cast will also be returning including Janel Parish as Gogo and Anna Cathcart as Kitty. Naturally Lara and Peter will have finally got together, following on from the end of the first film, but it will be far from smooth sailing thanks to the continued meddling of Genevieve, played by Emilija Baranac. A new character named Stormy, played by Holland Taylor, also promises to spice things up. Though she will be a slightly older character.
On top of this, Peter’s best friend, played by Ross Butler of Riverdale and 13 Reasons Why fame, may be getting involved as well. Plus, Lara will be tempted by a new love interested, in the form of John Ambrose McClaren, a Model UN Student that will be played by Jordan Fisher. But just because you know what happens in the books, don’t assume that you know exactly what will unfold between Lara, Peter, and now John Ambrose. Producers have been flexible with the material.
Very few details of the third film have been released, but they are likely to deal with the final days of high school and making decisions for the future, such as university, unless some of these films get pulled into the first sequel.
Either way, we will not have long to wait, with P.S. I Still Love You arriving in just over two months, and the third and final promising to land not long after.
