It's officially official! Netflix is making the To All the Boys I've Loved Before sequel you've been asking for since approximately 30 seconds after the first film ended! And naturally, stars Lana Condor and Noah Centineo continued to be totally adorable together in Netflix's announcement for the sequel. In it, Condor is seen checking names off her Christmas list — she complains Centineo already has everything when she gets to his name, *swoon* — when who should call her up but Centineo himself!
Both those kids know how to leave us wanting more though, since the video ends with their little chat about the sequel getting interrupted by a call from an unseen third party. Whoever is on the other end of the phone has exciting news though: He's been cast in the sequel as John Ambrose! OK, way to (rudely) leave us hanging, Netflix!
For those of you unaware, John Ambrose McClaren is the boy that Lara Jean (Condor) knew from Model U.N. when she was younger. He was also the recipient of one of the Lara Jean's secret letters in the first film. P.S I Still Love You, the second installment of Jenny Han's book trilogy upon which the films are based, features his character heavily, and it turns out he was actually pretty good friends with both Lara Jean and Peter in middle school. Naturally, Lara Jean is forced to reexamine her feelings for John Ambrose, which could be bad news for poor Peter Kavinsky!
The news of who has been cast as John Ambrose is obviously being kept under wraps, but it sounds like we shouldn't expect him to be the same kid who showed up on Lara Jean's doorstep in the post-credits scene of To All the Boys I've Loved Before. No need to get so jazzed about the perfect John Ambrose casting if that previous casting was carrying over to the new film, right? Orrr, Netflix could be screwing with us. Who knows?
The To All the Boys I've Loved Before sequel does not yet have a premiere date.
