Netflix rom-com To All the Boys I've Loved Before is getting a sequel. Some members of the cast have already confirmed they're filming it, and the movie reportedly revolves heavily around a character who didn't get his chance to shine in the original. 

Jordan Fisher has been cast as the highly anticipated love interest John Ambrose. The character barely appeared in the first movie (and was played by a totally different actor), but he could be a big factor in Lara Jean's relationship with Peter Kavinsky. The film will also introduce another new character, but most of the characters whom fans already love will be mostly returning for the sequel.

A To All the Boys I've Loved Before sequel is in the works, and we can't wait. 

So it's official: To All the Boys I've Loved Before is getting a sequel. Just like the first movie was based on the book of the same name by Jenny Han, the second movie is all about Han's second book, P.S. I Still Love You. You'll still be following Lara Jean's love life and all the drama that comes with it. But there's one big plot twist that makes this sequel a whole new experience. 

The sequel might be here sooner than we thought.

Netflix is already teasing the sequel. It released a trailer for it at the end of last year. On March 18, TATB2 star Noah Centineo tweeted "TATB2 here we come," so it's safe to say that production has started. No word on when the sequel is coming just yet, though. We'd expect a fall 2019 release, given how quick Netflix turns projects around.

All your favorite characters are most likely returning.

Lana Condor and Noah Centineo have both confirmed that they will be coming back as Lara Jean and Peter. And most likely, the rest of Lara's family will be returning as well. Her best friend, Chris, and his cousin may also make a return, but it hasn't been confirmed yet. Expect the cast to be pretty much the same this time around, just with a couple new additions.

An entirely new character is getting added to the mix.

Someone new will be joining the cast. A woman named Stormy is mentioned in the first book, but never makes an appearance. She'll finally appear in the second movie. Indiewire describes the character as "a nursing home resident who has led a rich and exciting life and teaches Lara Jean a thing or two about seizing the day, especially when it comes to romance." 

When it comes to Lara's love life, having someone to guide her and help her figure things out can't hurt. 

And Jordan Fisher is playing John Ambrose! SQUEAL.

At the end of the first movie, we see Jordan Burtchett playing John Ambrose, one of the boys who received a love letter from Lara Jean. But in the sequel, Jordan Fisher is taking over that role. He recently stole hearts as Mark in Rent: Live and as Doody in Grease: Live

Producer Matt Kaplan told Entertainment Weekly that Fisher is the ideal pick for the role. "Jordan’s charisma practically leaps off the screen with anything he does, whether it’s acting, singing, or dancing," he said. "There isn’t a more perfect guy who could believably shake things up in Lara Jean and Peter’s world."

Han's second book is mostly about John Ambrose, if that tells you anything about how the film counterpart might pan out.

Expect to see a lot of Jordan Fisher in the second movie because he's basically the only reason there is a second book. Back in August of last year, Han told Indiewire that she basically wrote the book for John Ambrose. 

“There’s so many things in the second book that I would love to see in a sequel,” she said. “The whole reason why I wrote a second book was for the character of John Ambrose McClaren, who is a fan favorite, and he’s a favorite of mine, too. I would love to see that explored, and also there’s a character called Stormy that I love to write. I would love to see that.”

In fact, John has already given fans a major clue about the sequel's plot.

John is a big plot point in the first movie, and he pretty much confirms the need for a sequel. There's a post-movie scene in the credits of the original movie in which Lara opens her door and sees John standing on the other side with flowers and the love letter Lara unknowingly sent to him.

And we hate to break it to Peter Kavinsky stans, but John is probably about to really mess things up for him.

As mentioned, John shows up in the credits scene with flowers for Lara Jean, so that certainly sets up the plot line for John to be someone she's interested in romantically. This certainly is going to cause some real drama in her existing relationship with Peter. 

If you read the first book, then you know that Lara Jean finds her way to a Model UN event where she meets John but runs away before they can have an actual conversation. Looks like he hasn't forgotten about her though, and she hasn't forgotten him either.

The castmembers certainly have their own ideas as to what might happen in TATBILB2.

Lana Condor told Indiewire that she read the second book before filming the movie because she really wanted to know what was going to happen. But she wasn't too happy with what she read. "I did read the second book because I was desperate to know what was going on, and it wrecked my world. It wrecked my world,” she said. “I was so pissed. I texted Jenny. I was like, ‘How could you do this to me?’”

Janel Parrish (who plays Lara Jean's older sister, Margot) said that she hasn't read the books but wants to stay true to the story. She does hope that Margot and her ex Josh get back together. 

There are three books in this series — maybe this sequel won't be the last.

This sequel is happening mostly due to the fact that it's the first in a trilogy. The second book is titled P.S. I Still Love You, and the third is Always And Forever Lara Jean. With the popularity of the first movie, it makes complete sense a second one is in the works. And with the third book, fans of the movie have a lot to look forward to. So if you can't wait for the sequel, the book is an option.
