Lara Jean and Peter’s Relationship Will Face Hardships in TATBILB Sequel
Okay… we know that To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before just came out, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t already looking forward to a possible sequel. Obviously, if Netflix does decide to do a sequel (which, why wouldn’t they?), spoilers will hit the web in the months leading up to its release. But, who are we kidding? There are already some spoilers out now about the sequel, and it hasn’t even been confirmed yet! Say whaaat?!
That’s right, TATBILB stans! The director of the movie, Susan Johnson, sat down with ET to answer some burning questions about what would happen in the sequel if and when it does happen.
Susan said, “We’ll borrow from the third book too like we did for the first movie. It’s pretty fluid. The script isn’t written, but I’m anxious to have them say yes so we can get going on it really quickly because you don’t want to rush it.”
Unfortunately, if you ship Lara Jean and Peter, you’ll probably be disappointed because Susan says their relationship will get rocky due to the arrival of John Ambrose McClaren at the very end of the flick.
“We’re so invested in Peter and Lara Jean, that seeing them go through struggles is going to be hard but also something everybody can relate to. The next shiny face comes in and you’re like, Oh shoot, this guy’s really nice too. What do I do?”
At this point, we can’t imagine loving another character more than we love Peter Kavinsky, but crazier things have happened, right? Before we speculate too much about the alleged sequel, though, we should probably wait for Netflix to give it the green light, which according to Susan, will take about a month.
“Netflix said that their general timeframe is 28 days,” she said. “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.”
You heard her, ladies and gents! Keep tweeting Netflix and tell ’em how much you loved the movie. We need this sequel to happen! Unless, of course, you want Lara Jean and Peter to remain blissfully happy together forever. In which case, you should probably rally against a sequel. Let’s face it, fam… hard times are coming.
