By now, it feels like everyone you've ever met in your life has seen and is now obsessed with To All the Boys I've Loved Before. The Netflix rom-com has stolen hearts everywhere, thanks to Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky's ridiculously adorable love story – and the fact that the actors who play the beloved couple, Lana Condor and Noah Centineo, have the purest friendship ever IRL. No one can get enough of this movie and for good reason! And with that end credits scene that totally sets up a second film, we're left wondering...
Is a sequel to To All the Boys I've Loved Before happening?
Well, as of right now, it's unclear as Netflix hasn't formally announced if another movie has been greenlit. But there are three books in author Jenny Han's series the film is based on, so there's obviously plenty of source material to go off of. And the movie's director, Susan Johnson, explained to Entertainment Tonight that another film could really happen.
"We're all attached contractually if we want to do the movie again, which is super exciting, and if our schedules all key up. Netflix said that their general timeframe is 28 days; they watch how well the movie does over the period of a month and once that’s over, they can make a decision about a sequel. I love the fans being vocal about it, the more, the better," Susan said.
That's good to hear, isn't it? Fans of the movie have made it known on social media just how much they love this movie, and that passion is hopefully not going unnoticed. As for the cast, they're all down for another movie, too.
"All I know is that every single person involved in the making of that film wants a sequel," Noah said to Variety. "We've all talked about it in depth. I’ll do as many as they want me!" And Lana totally agrees with Noah, telling People, "I know I can speak for the whole cast, we all want a sequel very badly. I think it would be crazy to not have a sequel."
So knowing our Lara Jean and Peter are all about another movie is enough to get everyone excited, right?
What will the sequel be about?
Noah already has some possible plotlines in mind and prepare yourself, because he wants to see the beloved Peter go down a bit of a darker path.
"Maybe Peter can fall from the pedestal? Maybe he can change into not-so-good of a guy? Maybe we can show the dimensions to different people. How we can be heroes in one moment and villains in another?" Noah said to Metro about what he hopes happens in another movie. Ugh, we can't even imagine this! But Noah does make some solid points, and it would be interesting to see the many layers to Peter Kavinsky.
As we saw from the end of the first movie, there will be a character who's going to shake things up though. John Ambrose McClaren comes to the Covey family's door, flowers in hand, ready to talk to Lara Jean about the letter she sent him.
And according to Ms. Director herself Susan, this could mean trouble for LJ and Peter.
"The struggle of what that means and not having a contract and trust — all those issues that they talk about on the field at the very last scene," Susan said to Entertainment Tonight. "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. We're so invested in Peter and Lara Jean, that seeing them go through struggles is going to be hard but also something everybody can relate to."
Let's hope whatever happens in this next movie our ship makes it out OK because we couldn't survive the downfall of this relationship even though, you know, it's just between two fictional characters. We need a love story to work out for once! And we have a feeling it'll be Lara Jean and Peter. Now, who can we seriously talk to about making this sequel happen already...
