been almost a year since To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You dropped on Netflix, and naturally, I’m now suffering from severe TATBILB withdrawal. Like, is this truly the end of Lara Jean and John Ambrose? What’s gonna happen when everyone goes to college? And how long do we have to wait for the third (and final!) To All the Boys movie in the series? Basically, I HAVE QUESTIONS and I NEED ANSWERS. So as a form of therapy, I’m putting together a comprehensive and not-at-all-nerdy guide to exactly what we can expect from To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before: Part 3.
ALERT the media. We have the first glimpse at the third movie, and there is a LOT to unpack here.
And we know it’s coming out February 12. GIRD YOUR LOINS
Assuming the movie is faithful to Jenny Han’s book, we’ll pick up with Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky in their final year of high school. Things are looking good with their ’ship, but the ~problem~? They don’t get into the same college, which means they’ll have to be long-distance until after freshman year, when Lara Jean plans to transfer to Peter’s school. Hard pass to planning your life around a dude, but we’ve all seen Peter Kavinsky’s face, so, fine. The thing is, Lara Jean then gets accepted at a school super far from where Peter will be, which puts *more* strain on their relationship.
Peter is obviously bummed and starts talking about transferring to Lara Jean’s school after freshman year—which his mom isn’t thrilled about. In fact, she straight-up asks Lara Jean to break up with him (RUDE), and to make matters more tense, Lara Jean and Peter’s plans to have sex for the first time don’t pan out. Things clearly aren’t great, and Lara Jean ends up breaking up with Peter…while she’s drunk. It’s basically a mess, but because this is a cute romantic comedy, the book—and maybe movie?—ends with Lara telling Peter she loves him at her dad’s wedding and they get back together. Obviously, there are a lot more deets (read the book!), but that’s the general vibe.
