To All the Boys I Loved Before, aka the movie that stole the Internet's collective heart, is officially getting a sequel! THIS IS NOT A DRILL.

The Netflix flick is absolutely irresistible—from the dream pairing of super relatable Lara Jean Song Covey and Peter "the teenage dream" Kavinski, to all the '80s and '90s rom-com references. So it's no surprise Netflix was convinced to push through with a sequel. Here's everything we know about the second film.

1. It's coming (hopefully) soon.

At long last, the second installment to the TATBILB series is in the works. According to The Hollywood Reporter, P.S. I Still Love You is "one of the first movies being discussed" as part of Paramount Pictures and Netflix's new deal. So maybe we'll get a chance to stare at Noah Centineo's gorgeous face on the big screen this time? Whoa whoa whoa!

2. There are two more books!

Jenny Han wrote a trilogy. To All the Boys I Loved Before is followed by P.S. I Still Love You and Always and Forever, Lara Jean. So if you're looking for major spoilers or can't wait for Netflix to produce another movie, find out what happens to Lara Jean and Pete the old-fashioned way: Read!

3. John Ambrose—from Model UN—will most likely be there.

If you made sure to patiently watch through the first half of the end credits, you probably already guessed that a sequel would be in the works because another one of Lara Jean's letter recipients comes to the Coveys' door: John Ambrose McClaren from model UN.

Author Jenny Han has expressed her interest in making a second movie particularly because of John Ambrose, who enters Lara Jean's life once again and rekindles their friendship by exchanging letters with her in P.S. I Still Love You. "There’s so many things in the second book that I would love to see in a sequel," she told Indiewire. "The whole reason why I wrote a second book was for the character of John Ambrose McClaren, who is a fan favorite, and he’s a favorite of mine too."

John Ambrose will probably still be played by actor Jordan Burtchett.

4. It's not going to be all milkshakes and jean pocket spins.

Because John Ambrose is in the picture, you already know there's going to be trouble in paradise. And for loyal LJ+Pete shippers, it's going to be painful to watch. "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," director Susan Johnson told ET back in August. "The next shiny face comes in and you're like, 'Oh shoot, this guy's really nice too. What do I do?'"

5. The cast was totally supportive, and wanted to do a second movie.

In an interview with Teen Vogue, Lana Condor said that she and the rest of the cast are definitely on board for a sequel. "I would love to. I haven't heard of anything official, but I've heard some very positive things," she said. "I think it all comes down to if people watch the movie and if they're vocal about it in a positive way. So, we'll see. I would love to do a second and a third one. And I know when we were shooting it — Noah, Israel, Janel, everyone — we all talked about wanting to start the second one immediately after. So, we're definitely on board."

Lana even rallied her fans online to help make the next movie happen! And it's definitely paid off.

6. There was a petition to green light two more TATB movies!

To All the Boys I Loved Before fan Rebecca G. has posted a Care2 petition addressed to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, asking him for two more sequels to the film. "If you want MORE Lara Jean — and definitely MORE Peter Kavinsky, please sign my petition calling on Netflix to hurry up and make more sequels to 'To All the Boys I've Loved Before,'" she says in the post. The goal is to reach a total of 4,000 signatures. But there's a catch: the petition is also calling for the recasting of Josh's actor, Israel Broussard. 

The statement reads, "Although we love the movie, please recast actor Israel Broussard, who played Lara Jean's boy-next-door crush, Josh. Recently, Broussard's racist, homophobic, and offensive past tweets have been widely shared online — and this type of hate has NO PLACE in the wonderful 'To All the Boys I've Loved Before' universe."
