If you're like us, you've already seen To All the Boys I've Loved Before
multiple times and are hoping for a sequel so we could see more of Lara Jean Song Covey and Peter Kavinsky. Netflix might be making our dreams come true, thanks to the big success from the first movie. While not officially confirmed yet, we're not losing hope and there seems to be some clues that may suggest a sequel.
Here's everything we know about the movie so far...
Noah Centineo is very excited for one specific reason.
Now that the To All the Boys I've Loved Before sequel is officially happening, we no longer have to dream about the Lana Condor/Noah Centineo reunion we've been waiting for. They'll be back to filming in no time and Noah is just as excited about it as we are.
He explained to People that there are multiple reasons why he wants to do the sequel. "One, just because it’s such a great story and it needs to be finished," he said. "The story has to be told. And two, because I miss Lana. I miss the f*ck out of Lana and Israel [Broussard], Trezzo [Mahoro] and everyone. I can’t wait to see everybody and hang out again. That was such a treasure, being in Vancouver with them."
Yes! We can't wait to be bombarded with Instagram stories and vids of the cast all hanging out together again!
Is P.S. I Still Love You officially happening?
P.S. I Still Love You is officially happening! Deadline has reported that the To All the Boys I've Loved Before sequel will be the first film that Netflix/Paramount will make together in their new deal.
Bob Bakish said that the sequel "might have a sexier title over time," but we don't doubt it will still follow the same plot as the original novel.
Unlike the previous film, Paramount and Netflix will be working together to create the film (Paramount owns Viacom who owns Awesomeness Films, the original producers of the film).
Writer Jenny Han previously opened up about how much the cast would love to reunite for a sequel.
"The whole cast would love to do it. I think we all would love for that to happen," she said at Vulture Festival, according to Deadline. "Everyone has said that."
TATBILB's director, Susan Johnson told Entertainment Tonight that the whole team is "attached contractually if [they] want to do the movie again, which is super exciting." She also explained that usually Netflix likes to wait a month to see how the movie does before they decide whether or not to do a sequel. "Netflix said that their general timeframe is 28 days; they watch how well the movie does over the period of a month and once that’s over, they can make a decision about a sequel." Considering the fact that the movie has blown up since its release, we can probably see a sequel in our future. "I love the fans being vocal about it, the more, the better."
Even better, Jenny Han, who wrote the book the movie is based on, is in for a sequel. "I would love it," she told ET. "If people want more, then I want to be able to give them more."
What has Noah Centineo said about it?
"Yeah! F*ck yeah! I would love to. That would be such a gift. I would absolutely love to," he told Seventeen. "That would be a gift to be able to go back to Vancouver and hang out with Lana, Israel, and Trezzo, and everyone. That would be a gift."
As for where we would see Peter Kavinsky, he reassured fans of the book series that it'll likely be the same.
"Well, you know, it’s already written, so I don’t really have a say in it."
Here's hoping they make it happen!
The Cast May Not Have Time
Before you freak out, remember that the To All the Boys cast and crew want a sequel just as much as the rest of us and they think it will happen. "I’ve heard stuff, but I think there’s a very high chance we’ll get a sequel," Lana Condor told Entertainment Tonight. But, if it's really going to come to fruition, everyone needs to get it together and book Noah and Lana because their schedules are getting busy!
Noah just got another movie, on top of Charlie's Angels, which he's currently shooting. And Lana's new show Deadly Class is coming out in January. If things go well and the show gets renewed, she's going to be busy for awhile. "It comes down to availability," she explained. "And I hope they lock us in soon."
Netflix! What are you waiting for? Give the people what they want and lock these actors down already!
There's a Petition for a Sequel
While there hasn't been any word on whether there will be a sequel for our new favorite film, fans are taking matters into their own hands to try and make it happen. Rebecca G. created a petition asking Netflix to order a sequel and over 8,000 people have signed it so far.
While the petition praises the film for being important for Asian-American representation in media, Rebecca is also asking them to recast Israel Broussard as Josh after his controversial tweet resurfaced. While Broussard has since apologized for the tweets, Rebecca writes, "The "To All the Boys I've Loved Before" sequels don't need Broussard as Josh - but we need more Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky."
Fans Want The Rock to Make an Appearance
There's no doubt that Netflix will try to make P.S. I Still Love You even bigger than To All the Boys I've Loved Before, and fans already have some ideas they hope to see put in place.
Lana Condor tweeted out to The Rock, calling him fitness goals as she worked out.
The Rock replied back to her, giving her some encouragement during her workout. Lana then replied with the most relatable Moana reference ever.

I just had a vision of you singing me Moana as I bench press and me crying tears of absolute bliss #TheRockforpresident- Lana Condor (@lanacondor) August 27, 2018
Fans were quick to see the adorable exchange between them and even said that this could be a way to get The Rock into the sequel.
imagine: the rock makes a cameo in to all the boys I’ve loved before sequel...don’t know where why or how he’d fit but make it happen- autumn ala (@dyspphoria) August 27, 2018
They had different ideas for who he could play, including Peter's dad.

Come on, Netflix. Please make this happen.
What would the sequel be about?
Well, in case you missed it, there was a special mid-credits scene that might have hinted as to what we can expect. In it, John Ambrose McClaren (YES, MODEL UN GUY) shows up at Lara Jean's door with flowers and the love letter that she wrote to him. Kitty is the one who answers the door and she lets Lara Jean know that there's somewhere there to see her. It's likely that the movie will start from John's surprise return and how it'll affect her relationship with Peter.
The script for the movie isn't written yet, but Susan has some ideas about what the movie will dive into. It seems like John Ambrose McClaren's arrival may make things between Lara Jean and Peter pretty complicated.
"Relationships are hard to navigate and they’ll find themselves in one," said Susan. "And they’ll discover what the next person might bring in John Ambrose McClaren...The next shiny face comes in and you’re like, Oh shoot, this guy’s really nice too. What do I do?."
On top of that, Josh Sanderson will probably play a larger role in the sequel. Originally, To All the Boys dove into the love triangle between Lara Jean, Peter, and Josh more, but they cut a lot of those scenes out. "It wasn’t avoided but it was certainly cut down in post," she said. "We had shot a little bit more than was there and we shot a resolution to that storyline, but at the end of the day, if we wanted to keep the momentum going for the chemistry that was taking over the film between Peter and Lara Jean, other things had to get cut down a little bit."
So, Susan has plans for Josh in the next movie, though he's not really in the second book too much. This is especially important to her because she loves Israel Broussard, the actor who plays Josh, apparently despite his homophobic and racist tweets that recently resurfaced.
Does the cast want a sequel?
Lana Condor and Noah Centineo might be this movie's biggest fans and we honestly can't blame them. According to Susan Johnson, the cast is already on board for a sequel, if it happens.
"We were having dinner, Lana, Israel and I, and I was like, 'What do we think? Are we going to do the next one? Is it going to happen?,'" she told Metro. "They responded, 'Yes! Make it happen. Before we get too old. We don’t want to be 30 doing these roles.' Everybody involved is excited about it. We would love to keep the band together, so lets cross our fingers."
She also revealed that if the sequels do get picked up, it's likely they will film it back-to-back to make sure they are done in time.
"We thought about it while we were casting the movie. And we knew we would only get a few more years of teenage years out of these guys anyway. So we sort of were prepared for it."
Lana and Noah seem to be all for it, even spearheading the movement for a possible sequel with a certain scene from the first movie.
Is there anything I can do until the sequel comes out?
Luckily for us, Jenny Han wrote two more books in the series that follows our favorite couple as they face new challenges together.
