A sequel to “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” is officially in the works at Netflix, the streaming platform announced Wednesday.
The sequel will reunite Lana Condor and Noah Centineo and will be produced by Matt Kaplan and Dougie Cash. Sofia Alvarez is writing the screenplay.
Awesomeness Films, Ace Entertainment and Overbrook Entertainment will produce the film that will be distributed by Netflix. Awesomeness previously partnered with Netflix on the first movie, as well as 2017’s “You Get Me.” Overbrook previously partnered with Netflix on 2017’s “Bright.”
Earlier this month at UBS’ media and communication conference, Viacom CEO Bob Bakish said that a sequel to Netflix’s teen-love hit “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” was in the works.
The project will be the first film as part of a multipicture deal that Viacom’s Paramount and Netflix signed in November, Bakish said via a livestream from the conference. Awesomeness TV was acquired by Viacom in July.
News of the sequel was not unexpected given the success of the original and the fact that there are three installments in Jenny Han’s book series on which “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” was based. That first book was followed by “P.S. I Still Love You,” and then “Always and Forever, Laura Jean.”
Han and the film’s star, Lana Condor, said during the Vulture Festival in Los Angeles last month that everyone involved would love to do a sequel.
Condor stars as Lara Jean Covey, a high school junior whose sister sends out the deliberately never-to-be-sent letters to boys on whom she had a crush — sparking much drama as well as a budding romance with cool-kid crush Peter (played by Centineo).
