There’s officially more Loved in Noah Centineo’s future…
Netflix has confirmed that Lana Condor and the 22-year-old part-Latino actor,, the stars behind its hit Young Adult film To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, are officially returning for the sequel.
The new film, which will be based on the book trilogy by Jenny Han, is now in development.
The casting news comes after Viacom CEO Bob Bakishconfirmed earlier this month that the sequel would be the first title in Paramount Pictures’ multi-picture deal with Netflix.
Awesomeness Films, acquired by Viacom earlier this year, produced the original and will produce the sequel, which returns with screenwriter Sofia Alvarez.
The book series centers on Lara Jean (Condor), who writes love letters to the five boys she’s ever loved and keeps them locked away in a hatbox until the day her letters are mailed, upending her real-life love life.
The first film was one of the streaming service’s highlights; in a rare peek behind the scenes at the streaming service, Netflix said half of all viewers who watched To All the Boys and fellow YAhit Kissing Booth re-watched them at least once.
