‘To All the Boys 4’: The Cast Teases the Possibility of Another Netflix Film After ‘Always and Forever’
On Feb. 12, Netflix released the latest film of the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before franchise, Always and Forever. But is the third movie the end of an era or does the streaming platform have plans for another round? Recently, the cast and author Jenny Han opened up about the possibility of To All the Boys 4 and where a fourth installment would take Lara Jean Covey (Lana Condor) and Peter Kavinsky’s (Noah Centineo) story next.
Will Netflix release a fourth ‘To All the Boys’ movie?
As of this write-up, it’s unlikely Netflix has plans to release To All the Boys 4. The trilogy is based on Han’s books, which only features To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, P.S. I Still Love You, and Always and Forever, Lara Jean. So, unless there’s a fourth book coming soon, Netflix is out of source material.
Meanwhile, the cast has made it clear that To All the Boys: Always and Forever was planned as the franchise’s last film.
“Like in life, all things must come to an end,” Centineo told E! News of To All the Boys: Always and Forever. “I feel like of all the ways to tie something up and to end, I mean, I think this is a really beautiful way to say goodbye.”
Condor also revealed that the end of To All the Boys felt “overwhelming.”
“Let me tell you right now, I am fully in denial,” she said. “I have not processed, not a single thing.”
Jenny Han opens up about the possibility of ‘To All the Boys 4’
Now, what are the chances Han will write another To All the Boys book? In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the author revealed she would be up to write a fourth novel if she had an “amazing idea” that she was “excited” about. So, for the time being, fans will just have to wait and see what happens. But, Han still believes there’s more stories to tell when it comes to Lara Jean.
“I think it’s about being excited to tell the story and there are so many stories that I want to tell,” Han said. “It’s never really goodbye because the characters live on.”
She continued, “You can turn on Netflix and see them again. You can pick up a book and spend time with them. For me, even as a creator of it, they live on, they keep doing their thing.”
The ‘To All the Boys’ cast would ‘never say never’ to another film after ‘Always and Forever’
While To All the Boys 4 is still up to Han and Netflix, it definitely seems like the cast is willing to reprise their roles.
“If Jenny Han writes a fourth book, sign me up!” Centineo told Variety in February 2020.
Meanwhile, in an interview with The New York Times, Condor said that she would “never say never” to coming back. She also hoped to revisit To All the Boys after a time jump.
“I think never say never,” Condor said of returning for To All the Boys 4. “The third is all I know. To me, that’s the ending. But I would really like to see Lara Jean and Peter in their mid- to late 20s. Like they’ve gone through college, and I want to see what they’re like in the work space.”
Condor also revealed her dreams for Lara Jean, speculating that her character will end up in New York with a career in writing. She also predicted that Lara Jean and Peter will stay together long after To All the Boys ends.
“I personally have this feeling that they’re going to try to make it work in college, but they’re going to have to grow separately to be fully ready to come together,” Condor said of Lara Jean and Peter. “But I know for a fact that they’re going to get married; they’re going to live happily ever after.”
She continued, “I just think they might need to grow as individuals first. And then I’d love to see them meeting each other again — she’s like at a cafe writing an article for a newspaper she’s working for, and he happens to be there, and they meet again in a new way where they’re older and developed. That would be so cool.”
To All the Boys: Always and Forever is now streaming on Netflix.
