AceShowbiz - "To All the Boys I've Loved Before" is officially getting a sequel. After numerous speculations, Netflix officially confirms the news in a video featuring lead stars Noah Centineo and Lana Condor, who play the main couple Peter Kavinsky and Lara Jean Covey, respectively.
Condor is writing down the list of Christmas gifts to buy for her co-stars when Centineo calls her. When Condor tells Centineo that she's going to tell fans their secret, he gives her his signature "Woah, woah, woah!" line, before sharing the news about the sequel.
She later picks up a call from another person and says to the person on the other side of the phone, "You're going to make a perfect John Ambrose," hinting that the sequel will feature a new cast member as John Ambrose.
Sharing the video on her own Instagram page, Condor wrote, "It's happening! So excited to announce #ToAllTheBoysSequel is coming soon.... let's do this." She tagged Centineo and the book's author Jenny Han.
Netflix also announced the news in a form of love letter to fans. "To All the Fans I've Loved Before... I miss you," it read. "I know it's only been a few months and I swear I wasn't trying to avoid you; I just didn't know how to answer your question without lying to you."
It continued, "The truth isn't always simple or straightforward - and as we all know too well, dating contracts have a way of quickly getting complicated. But, the letters are out...it's true. A 'To All the Boys I've Loved Before' sequel is coming to Netflix."
Confirming the return of Condor and Centineo, Netflix promised "the next chapter will be worth the wait!"
Susan Johnson, who directed the first movie, previously let slip the news about the sequel. "Well, the cat's out of the bag! Thanks for the support, everyone!!! It's all you!" she wrote on Instagram, before quickly deleting it. A representative for Netflix, however, said at the time, "The sequel is not confirmed, we are purely in discussions."
Johnson previously hinted that John Ambrose McClaren, the final recipient of Lara Jean's letters, might lead to where the story will go in the sequel. "Relationships are hard to navigate and they'll find themselves in one. And they'll discover what the next person might bring in John Ambrose McClaren," she told Entertainment Tonight back in August.
"We're so invested in Peter and Lara Jean, that seeing them go through struggles is going to be hard but also something everybody can relate to," she added. "The next shiny face comes in and you're like, 'Oh shoot, this guy's really nice too. What do I do?' "
"To All the Boys I've Loved Before 2" doesn't have a release date just yet.
