BWW News: P.S. I STILL LOVE YOU by Jenny Han streetdated for Netflix; third film in production!
Last year, the Netflix movie To All the Boys I've Loved Before, based on the book by Jenny Han, premiered to such high ratings that a sequel was instantly greenlit. Netflix has stated that over half of all viewers have re-watched the movie at least once and considers the film an enormous success. The book was the first in a three-part series centered around Lara Jean and the boys she's loved over the years -- and the one boy she can't get out of her head right now as she enters a seemingly-fake relationship with Peter Kavinsky that becomes realer than she ever could have imagined.
The cast announced news about the sequel on Instagram and Han posted the news on her Twitter page:
The second movie, To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, will premiere on Netflix February 12, 2020, just in time for Valentine's Day viewings. The third film, To All the Boys: Always and Forever, Lara Jean, is currently in production.
Yesterday, filming of the final movie came to a close and actor Noah Centineo, who stars as Peter Kavinsky, posted a sweet message on Twitter to commemorate the moment:
Tonight was my last night as Peter Kavinsky.I hope you all love these last installments as much as we do. Forever grateful for the opportunity to be yours Thank you Lana, thank you Michael, Thank you Matt, Thank you Netflix, grateful to every person who told this story with us

Leading lady Lana Condor, who stars as Lara Jean, responded with,
You'll always be my Peter K. & I'll always be your Lara Jean, that I can promise you. https://t.co/1phx9hFU2Z

Fans of the series burst at the communication between the two and got even more excited for the film.
The film stars Candor (X-Men Apocalypse, Alita: Battle Angel) and Centineo (The Perfect Date, The Fosters), and is rounded out with Lara Jean's sisters, played by Janel Parrish (Pretty Little Liars, Triple Dog) and Anna Cathcart (Descendants 3, Odd Squad). Their father is played by John Corbett (My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Northern Exposure).
