(SPOT.ph) After taking over everyone's timelines (in the form of memes), phones (in the form of screensavers), and Netflix accounts (just because we kept watching it over and over again), To All the Boys I've Loved Before is on the road to getting a sequel. According to The Hollywood Reporter, movie studio Paramount has made a deal to produce multiple movies that will be available for streaming on Netflix—and that includes a sequel to the popular and swoonworthy rom-com.
In case you didn't know, To All the Boys I've Loved Before (TATBILB) isn't actually produced by Netflix. It's from a production company called Awesomeness, which was bought by Viacom, the parent company of Paramount. It was then distributed by Netflix and eventually became one of the “most viewed original films ever with strong repeat viewing.” (Admit it: You don't even know how many times you've watched it.)
With how successful TATBILB is, it isn't that surprising that it's getting a sequel. After all, there are three books in the Jenny Han series that it's based on, with the second and third being P.S. I Still Love You and Always and Forever, Lara Jean, respectively. This sequel will most probably pick up from where TATBILB left off, that is, with John Ambrose knocking on Lara Jean's door (well, technically, ringing her doorbell.)
In a previous interview with SPOT.ph, TATBILB's director Susan Johnson shared her hopes about a sequel. "We shall see! Depends on how well this one does on Netflix. We’re off to a great start, so fingers crossed," she says. There's no word yet if Lana Condor is returning as the feisty but sweet Lara Jean or if the Internet's boyfriend Noah Centineo will be reprising his role as Peter K. Let's just hope they'll be coming back—and that the movie gets released soon!
