Peter Kavinsky lovers, rejoice: Netflix just confirmed it's making a sequel to To All the Boys I've Loved Before with a very adorable Instagram that features both Lara Jean (Lana Condor) and Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo). This shouldn't come as too much of a surprise. To All the Boys is based on a novel trilogy by Jenny Han, after all, and the success of the first movie almost guarantees a second one could happen.
But here's the question: What would happen in this second film? The first movie took creative liberties and tied everything up in a neat bow, presumably in case a second one wasn't in the cards. By the end of the movie, Lara Jean and Peter are happily together. That doesn't happen in the books, though. Instead, Lara writes Peter a letter that's delivered in the second novel, P.S.: I Still Love You. It's after this that Lara and Peter share a steamy hot tub kiss that goes viral—but, as you know, this all happened in the first movie. So where would things pick up for chapter two?
That's still a mystery, but here's what we know about the To All the Boys I've Loved Before sequel so far:
The title: If Netflix stays true to the books, it will be called P.S.: I Still Love You. But the Instagram post announcing the news teases the film as To All the Boys Sequel, so TBD.
The director: Susan Johnson, who helmed the first one, would presumably lead the ship for the second installment because she posted about it on Instagram.
The cast: Condor and Centineo both confirm they'll be in the sequel in the film's Instagram announcement. Centineo told Variety that "every single person involved in the making of [the first] film wants a sequel." So I'd expect to see some more familiar faces. As for who will play John Ambrose McClaren, a new rival for Lara Jean's heart, that is yet to be announced.
The plot: Johnson told Entertainment Tonight that a sequel would likely follow what happens in the novel version of P.S. I Still Love You (minus those creative liberties, of course). If they're casting John Ambrose, though, that means a love triangle is all but guaranteed.
Get excited, people!
