In addition, this Netflix film was nominated for 12 other awards.
Ever since Lara Jean had been introduced to the big screen, fans have been anxiously waiting for a sequel. On Dec. 19, many cast members released a little clip announcing that the sequel of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before was in the works. Fans were excited to find out that a new addition to the cast will play one of Lara Jean’s former crushes from Model UN, John Ambrose.
Ever since the announcement, many fans of the franchise have speculated who will be playing John Ambrose. On March 28, Condor posted a video on Instagram officially presenting Jordan Fisher as John Ambrose. Many may recognize Fisher from Teen Beach Movie, Grease: Live, and even Dancing with the Stars. Viewers can also expect a new cast member to play Peter Kavinsky’s new friend, who will be played by Riverdale and13 Reasons Why star Ross Butler.
Not only can fans expect more additions to the cast, but a juicy storyline as well. With John Ambrose returning and Peter’s ongoing friendship with his ex, a love triangle is definitely expected.
Condor told Cosmopolitan, “There’s going to be a major new love interest.” Condor explained, “The first one was with John and Peter, but in the second movie it’s going to be a major new character that’s going to challenge Peter quite a bit and fight over me, which is not a bad thing.”
In addition, Condor has expressed that the sequel will borrow the third book’s plotline. Similar to the upcoming sequel, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before had a few scenes that actually occurred in the second book. Some of the scenes were the aftermath of the scandalous video released of Lara Jean and Peter, as well as Lara Jean’s last love letter to Peter Kavinsky. Regardless, many fans are extremely pumped for the sequel and ready for more of Peter K’s “Woah, Woah, Woah” moments.
On Aug.15, Condor, Centineo and Fisher announced on Instagram that the sequel, To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You will premiere on Feb. 12 on Netflix. Many fans are patiently awaiting the trailer and are expecting tons of surprises.
