‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ Sequel

Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

We have some very exciting news to share with the world: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is officially getting a sequel! The Netflix flick released in 2018 stole the world’s heart with the super adorable characters and relatable plot line. It was such a hit movie that it was pushed through with a sequel. Here is what we know so far about the second film.

Release date? Netflix is the new Santa Claus. They will be delivering the TATBILB sequel around next Christmas sometime in December. And production is already under-way! Noah Centineo, who played heart-throb and love interest Peter Kavinsky, tweeted on March 18, “TATB2 here we come.” Lana Condor, who played the lead role as Lara Jean Convey, responded, “I can’t wait to see ya.”

For those who didn’t know, TALBILB is actually based off of a trilogy book series penned by Jenny Han. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, P.S. I Still Love You, and Always and Forever, Lara Jean. So if you just can’t wait for the sequel to be released next winter, you can visit the series any time. But, there is major spoilers (obviously) if you finish all three books in the series. So if you want to wait for the movie, then you’ll just have to be patient!

We also know for sure that all of our favorite characters are returning for the sequel. Netflix announced that the whole Covey family will be returning. Janel Parrish, Anna Cathcart, and John Corbett will be returning to their roles as Lara Jean’s sisters and dad. Also, hi, just look at how cute this picture is.

Now here’s for the drama: remember John Ambrose McClaren? No? That’s okay, not many do. He made an appearance in the first half of the end credits and he’s one of Lara Jean’s love letter recipients. Hilariously, author Jenny Han told Indiewire that she was interested in making a sequel because of John Ambrose’s character! Unfortunately, that might mean there’s some trouble in paradise for Lara Jena and Peter Kavinsky. Director Susan Johnson told ET, “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.”
