So, by now you’ve hopefully watched To All the Boys I’ve Loved on Netflix and have become totally enamored with Lara Jean and Peter Freaking Kavinsky. If you haven’t…I don’t want to encourage you to not read this article, but I also feel it is my duty to demand you do so for your own sake. I mean, this is what you’re missing:
Anyways, we have gathered here today to discuss something very important – a sequel for To All The Boys I’ve Loved – something we knew we needed at right about this moment in the film:
Thankfully, the movie is based on the best-selling TRILOGY (!!!) by Jenny Han, so there is definitely a lot more story left for Peter and Lara Jean (oh, and John Ambrose McClaren who is way more than just a mid-credit scene).
While speaking with Entertainment Tonight, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before director Susan Johnson spoke about what the chances of a sequel would be.
Judging by the fact that TATBILB has completely dominated social media since its premiere on the 17th, with people having watched it multiple times already, it would be completely shocking if the sequel wasn’t greenlit.
Johnson also explained that should the movie be given the sequel it would largely follow the events of the second book, P.S. I Still Love You, as well as parts of the third, Always and Forever, Lara Jean.
Of course, what would a teen rom-com sequel be without some relationship drama?
John Ambrose McClaren wasn’t introduced as some sort of fan service for movie-watchers who simply wanted to see Lara Jeans’s fifth letter get some closure. Peter and Lara may have gotten their happy ending, but they’ve got a long road ahead of them now that their relationship isn’t “fake” anymore.
I’m sorry, what?
Okay, fine. We will allow it just as long as we actually get the sequel AND some adorable Peter and Lara scenes. Deal?
