Since To All The Boys I've Loved Before premiered on Netflix in August, it has become a streaming sensation. It was the film that inspired a thousand memes and countless viral tweets, and was even labelled 'the best teen rom-com of the decade.'
Now, we have confirmation that a sequel is officially in the works! In other news, I'm hyperventilating.
Netflix has announced the sequel to To All the Boys I've Loved Before is currently in development and will be reuniting stars Lana Condor (Lara Jean Covey) and Noah Centineo (Peter Kavinsky). The sequel will be based on Jenny Han's popular trilogy of novels, with a screenplay by Sofia Alvarez.
Netflix confirmed the news earlier today, releasing an announcement video on social media with the help of Lana, Noah and a ~mystery~ special guest.
Jenny Han's To All The Boys I've Loved Before novel is followed by a sequel, P.S. I Still Love You, and a third book, Always and Forever, Lara Jean.
Parts of P.S. I still Love You - such as the "sex-tape" leak and Peter and Lara Jean's reconciliation - have already been covered in the first film. However, a key story-line from the second book is still yet to be explored.
In the second book, another recipient of Lara Jean's letters arrives on the scene: John Ambrose McClaren from model U.N. Those who watched TATBILB on Netflix will recall it ended with a surprise twist, when Lara Jean's younger sister, Kitty, opened the front door to greet John.
It seems we've been set up for a sequel all along!
News of the sequel first broke in November, when The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Paramount Pictures CEO Jim Gianopulos has unveiled a new deal with Netflix.
According to the publication, the To All The Boys I've Loved Before sequel will be one of the first projects to begin production under the new Paramount-Netflix deal.
TATBILB director Susan Johnson confirmed the reports on Instagram, writing "Well, the cat's out of the bag! Thanks for the support, everyone!!! It's all you!"
Don't mind us, we're just over here counting down the seconds until Peter Kavinsky is back in our lives.
To All The Boys I've Loved Before is currently streaming on Netflix.
