Here’s Everything We Know About 'To All The Boys I've Loved Before' Sequels
We brought you the news this morning that the second installment of To All The Boys I've Loved Before will be returning to our screens on 12th February 2020 and not just that, but there's going to be a third movie and it's already in the works.
Oh my Lara Jean!
Speaking in an exciting announcement video, Noah Centineo (who plays Peter Kavinsky), Lana Condor (Lara Jean) and Jordan Fisher (John Ambrose McClaren) held up cards to tease the news, which read: "Hey, it's me, Lana, Noah [and] Jordan. You guys have been so supportive and loving and patient."
"So let's just say, our movie is coming soon! What, you want more? To All The Boys P.S I Still Love You premieres February 12!"

To All The Boys I've Loved Before is based on a novel trilogy by Jenny Han and after the success of the first movie, it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise that a second and third are happening.
But that doesn't stop us from getting super excited. And while producers and cast have remained tight-lipped as to what we can expect, but we do have some details we can share with you.
For starters, as we said the first sequel will hit Netflix on February 12th 2020 (right before Valentine's Day), and will be called To All The Boys P.S I Still Love You.
And while fans might have felt the first movie's ending tied everything up in a little bow - Lara Jean and Peter looked as though they were going to live happily ever after - that doesn't actually happen in the books.
Instead, Lara writes Peter a letter that's actually delivered in the second novel before they eventually hook up. Didn't expect that, did you?
While Susan Johnson, director of the original, posted about the sequel on Insta, don't just assume she will be leading on the next movie.
She actually told The Hollywood Reporter that she won't be directing the second movie due to scheduling conflicts, but will stay on as an executive producer. Instead, the first film's Director of Photography Michael Fimognari will take over.
We know that both Noah and Lara are back because they're the ones that brought us the news, duh.
And we also know that Jordan has been cast as Lara Jean's childhood friend and new love interest John Ambrose McClaren, so it sounds like there's going to be a little love triangle on the cards.
When it comes to the plot, Susan has previously said that a sequel would likely follow the next book, and John Ambrose would fit into that theory perfectly.
P.S. I'm John Ambrose McClaren! Look out, LJ.@alltheboysfilm @NetflixFilm @lanacondor pic.twitter.com/8mj0cko8qw

Lara Jean's family will also return, as actors Anna Cathcart, Janel Parish and John Corbett have all officially signed on to reprise their roles as Lara Jean's sisters and father respectively. Madeleine Arthur will also return as her best friend Christine.
As for the third movie, all we know so far is that it's going to be called To All the Boys I've Loved Before: Always and Forever, Lara Jean and all though no casting details have been announced yet, its safe to assume Lana and Noah will be back for that one too, which is based on the third novel in the series.
If that's the case, we can expect it to explore the titular protagonist's end of high school and her struggles with her relationship with Peter, as well as the pressures of going to higher education.
With just six months to wait until the release of the second movie, watch this space for more details!
