Netflix announces the sequel to their smash-hit To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, will release in 2020, and a third film, To All the Boys: Always and Forever Lara Jean, is already in production. Based on Jenny Han’s novel of the same name, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before premiered on Netflix roughly a year ago, in August 2018, and became a hit among critics and casual viewers alike. In fact, the reception and the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before reviews were so positive, Netflix quickly began working on greenlighting film adaptations of Han’s other two novels in her book series, P.S. I Still Love You and Always and Forever Lara Jean.
In December 2018, just four months after the first film released, the To All the Boys sequel was announced, and filming got underway in March. Writer Sofia Alvarez, who penned the script for To All the Boys, is back for the sequel, but director Susan Johnson had to depart, remaining on board as a producer. Instead, the original film’s cinematographer, Michael Fimognari, will direct P.S. I Still Love You. Further, the stars of To All the Boys, Lana Condor and Noah Centineo, are returning as Lara Jean Covey and Peter Kavinsky, respectively. Now, fans of the Netflix movie have an idea of when they’ll get to watch the sequel.
Netflix announced on Twitter and Instagram the To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You release date is set for Feb. 12, 2020, and the third movie in the series, To All the Boys: Always and Forever Lara Jean is already in production. See the announcements – featuring Condor, Centineo and a new face to the film series – below.
In addition to Condor and Centineo, P.S. I Still Love You will feature the return of fellow original cast members, including Janel Parrish and Anna Cathcart as Lara Jean’s sisters Margot and Kitty, Trezzo Mahoro and Madeleine Arthur as Lara Jean’s friends Lucas and Chris, Emilija Baranac as Peter’s ex Gen and John Corbett as the Lara Jean’s father Dr. Covey. Joining the cast in P.S. I Still Love You is Jordan Fisher as John Ambrose McClaren, another love interest of Lara Jean, as well as Holland Taylor as John Ambrose’s great-grandmother Stormy and Sarayu Blu as the Coveys’ neighbor Trina Rothschild.
To All the Boys has plenty of fans thanks to its accessibility on Netflix, which helped propel it to become such a word-of-mouth success. Thankfully, the streaming company saw the viability in continuing to adapt Han’s books, no doubt enticing new users to Netflix with the promise of future To All the Boys movies. However, with Johnson departing for P.S. I Still Love You, it remains to be seen whether the sequel will satisfy all the fans of the first movie – even with Alvarez still on board. Of course, with much of the creative team and cast back for the sequel, it’s likely Netflix will deliver compelling second and third installments in the teen movie series.
Now fans just have to wait a little longer for To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, but at least they can rest assured knowing a third film is already on the way in the form of To All the Boys: Always and Forever Lara Jean.
