So what comes after Always and Forever?
While there’s no shortage of love-centric titles this month, we’re extra excited for one movie in particular. To All the Boys: Always and Forever is easily our choice for Valentine’s Day flick of the year. And we can’t believe it’s finally here! The third and final installment of the To All the Boys movies is now available for streaming on Netflix.
Is this really the final chapter of Lara Jean and Peter’s love story? Word on the street is that writer Jenny Han, whose books were adapted into the hit rom-com, has hinted at the possibility of a fourth book. Whether that becomes a reality, we’ll just have to wait and see.
Still, there’s no getting over the fact that To All the Boys I've Loved Before put a wonderful cast of actors on our radars; and we can’t wait to see what’s next for Lana Condor, Noah Centineo and company.
So, what comes after Always and Forever? Ahead, the series and movies to watch out for featuring To All the Boys cast members.
Lana Condor, “Lara Jean”
To All the Boys: Always and Forever may have just premiered, but Lana Condor’s keeping her plate full. She already has two movies in the works. In Girls Night, a comedy written by Cristina Kinon and directed by Marianna Palka, Condor will star alongside Deadpool actress Brianna Hildebrand in a fun best friends flick that covers their night out in New York City. Condor is also set to play Sophie in the Christopher Winterbauer-directed Moonshot, a movie in which “a woman goes after her boyfriend who has moved to Mars.”
Condor isn’t about to let go of Netflix, though. Swipe through the Instagram post below for a plot preview of the Netflix original comedy series Boo, Bitch:
Noah Centineo, “Peter”
Up next: get ready to see new sides to Noah Centineo.
Venturing outside the-boy-next-door roles, Centineo’s upcoming projects include The Diary, a Chinese period drama written and directed by Jackie Chan, and Black Adam, a sci-fi action movie where he assumes the role of DC superhero Albert Rothstein. Still in its early stages, another superhero flick Centineo has in the works is Masters of the Universe. Yup, you’re looking at the next He-Man!
Anna Cathcart, “Kitty”
With Anna Cathcart, we just can’t imagine anyone else playing Kitty. Frankly, we similarly can’t wait to see what else the up-and-coming actress has up her sleeve. What we know so far is that she’ll be appearing in the Disney Channel original movie Spin later this year, which follows the story of Rhea: “an Indian American teen who discovers her artistic side through the unique world of DJ culture.”
Cathcart falls in line here as part of Rhea’s eclectic group of friends. Judging by the behind-the-scenes snaps below, we already know to expect a ton of fun, adventure and maybe a little mayhem.
Madeleine Arthur, “Chris”
Lara Jean’s partner in crime is another actress we can’t wait to see more of.
A lot of the details are still under wraps, but we know Madeleine Arthur is slated to take on a darker, more serious role in the indie film Tell Me Why I Don’t Like Mondays. The plot is loosely based on the 1979 Cleveland Elementary School shooting carried out by 16-year-old Brenda Spencer, who famously said she did so because, “I don’t like Mondays.”
Ross Butler, “Trevor”
It’s not the Riverdale and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina crossover that fans have been aching for. But in some ways, this upcoming casting team-up sort of satisfies the craving. Ross Butler (To All the Boys’ Trevor and Riverdale’s OG Reggie Mantle) is joining Kiernan Shipka in the drama series Swimming With Sharks. According to reports, the Lionsgate production is also enlisting industry heavyweights Donald Sutherland and Diane Kruger for the “contemporary update of George Huang’s 1994 film that both celebrates and skewers the Hollywood studio system.”
We’re keeping our eyes peeled for the Swimming With Sharks release date. Meanwhile, we know of one Ross Butler project coming to screens very soon: Raya and the Last Dragon premieres March 5th.
Emilija Baranac, “Gen”
She was the character viewers loved to hate at first...then, came to love. Serbian-Canadian actress Emilija Baranac is exploring other genres post-To All the Boys, beginning with the 2021 short film Dead End. Written and directed by buddies Kiarra Goldberg and Sydney Scotia, Dead End makes Baranac’s sixth short film to date.
Just as well, Baranac is dipping her toes in the horror-thriller genre this year. She’ll be starring in There’s Someone Inside Your House with Sarah Dugdale (Virgin River), Sydney Park (Santa Clarita Diet) and Théodore Pellerin (On Becoming a God in Central Florida). The film is based on the 2017 Stephanie Perkins novel with the same title.
We can’t wait for everything, but also can’t move on from To All the Boys just yet.
