E! Online-Fans of To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, listen up, because it sounds like a To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before sequel is officially in the works. That’s right—Laura Jean Covey (Lana Condor) and Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo) may be reuniting on our laptop screens sometime in the (hopefully) near future. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a sequel is “one of the first movies being discussed” as part of Paramount Pictures and Netflix’s newly minted multi-picture deal.
This is obviously a no brainer. Paramount and Netflix are combining forces, which is interesting in itself because most studios are trying to fight against the streaming services. But Paramount is teaming up with Netflix instead. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before was made by the production company Awesomeness, which was bought by Viacom in August…and Viacom is Paramount’s parent company.
Netflix told Variety that more than 80 million subscribers watched one of Netflix’s rom-com’s from this past summer AND that To All the Boys was, “one of its most viewed original films ever with strong repeat viewing.” I can definitely back up this stat. I’ve easily reached double digits for how many times I’ve watched this movie since it came out.
Lana Condor spoke at the Vulture Festival recently and said, “The whole cast would love to do it.” Jenny Han backed her up too.
The power of Netflix heartthrob Noah Centineo is STRONG.
We don’t have any details on the To All The Boys sequel quite yet, but we do know that Jenny Han wrote two other books about Peter Kavinsky and Lara Jean Covey so there is plenty to work with. The sequel will probably center around Lara Jean navigating her relationship with Peter, while also dealing with John Ambrose McClaren coming back into her life. The classic high school who will she pick dilemma.
Netflix/Paramount MUST get on this ASAP. Like production needs to start tomorrow. I don’t want, I need more Peter and Lara Jean in my life.
P.S. @Netflix I wouldn’t hate a sequel for The Kissing Booth as well. Just in case you wanted to throw that in there as a package deal.
