To All of the Boys: At all times and Ceaselessly is that this yr’s greatest Valentine’s Day film, nevertheless it’s additionally a bit bittersweet. So far as we all know, there will not be a fourth film within the hit Netflix film sequence, so this yr may very well be the final time we see Lara Jean and Peter and all their associates. The sequence is not ending as a result of it isn’t a success, although — there’s really a quite simple rationalization.
The entire To All of the Boys sequence relies on a sequence of YA books by Jenny Han. There are three books in complete within the sequence: To All of the Boys I’ve Cherished Earlier than, P.S. I Nonetheless Love You, and At all times and Ceaselessly, Lara Jean. As you may discover, every of the books corresponds precisely to one of many motion pictures, so at this level, as soon as the third film is out, there is no extra materials to drag from for making film diversifications. For essentially the most half, this tends to be the way it goes with motion pictures and TV exhibits based mostly on books: when the supply materials runs out, so does the display model.
There are, in fact, a number of exceptions to the rule. As an illustration, Netflix’s different present YA romance film sequence, The Kissing Sales space, will launch its third installment later this yr, although the guide sequence solely consists of two books. In that case, although, the films aren’t fairly as tightly tied to following the books completely; they mix unique concepts with the plot factors from the books. Because the To All of the Boys sequence sticks to a “one guide equals one film” format, a continuation appears unlikely.
There have been no indications, from the forged and crew or from Netflix, that anybody has any intentions of continuous the sequence past this trilogy. Whereas we’ll miss this lovable film universe and these characters we have grown to like, we will not wait to see what the gifted forged do subsequent — and, in fact, how their tales finish when To All of the Boys: At all times and Ceaselessly arrives on Netflix on Feb. 12!
