Noah Centineo Talks About the Possibility of a ‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ Sequel
Fans of Netflix’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before have been very vocal online — not just about their crushes on stars Noah Centineo and Lana Condor, but also about their desire for a sequel. One person even started a petition for another movie. But viewers aren’t the only ones clamoring for a follow-up: Centineo, who played Peter Kavinsky, says that there’s strong interest from the cast and crew, too.
“All I know is that every single person involved in the making of that film wants a sequel,” the actor told Variety at the premiere of his other Netflix rom-com, Sierra Burgess Is a Loser. “We’ve all talked about it in depth. I’ll do as many as they want me [to do]!”
Condor is also open to the idea of a sequel, telling Teen Vogue, “I would love to. I haven’t heard of anything official, but I’ve heard some very positive things.”
“I think it all comes down to if people watch the movie and if they’re vocal about it in a positive way,” she added. “So, we’ll see. I would love to do a second and a third one. And I know when we were shooting it — Noah, Israel [Broussard], Janel [Parrish], everyone — we all talked about wanting to start the second one immediately after. So, we’re definitely on board.”
Director Susan Johnson, meanwhile, recently told ET that they’re “all attached contractually” for a second movie. “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. I love the fans being vocal about it, the more, the better,” she said.
The first movie actually already laid the groundwork for a sequel. When Lara Jean’s letters made their way out into the world, she had to face every guy who received one of her confessional messages — except Kenny from camp, who apparently never got his letter because it was returned to sender, and John Ambrose McClaren from Model UN. During a mid-credits scene, though, we saw John Ambrose waiting at Lara Jean’s door with flowers.
Fans of the book on which the movie was based already know that there are two more novels after the events of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. And John Ambrose plays a big role in the second one, P.S. I Still Love You.
Johnson told ET a sequel would likely align with that book and focus on Peter and Lara Jean’s growing pains as a couple. “The struggle of what that means and not having a contract and trust — all those issues that they talk about on the field at the very last scene,” she said. “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.”
