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.
