And the announcement also left fans with a teaser. Condor and Centineo’s conversation was interrupted by an incoming phone call from an actor, whose name has yet to be announced. “You’re gonna make the perfect John Ambrose!” she told the mystery caller.

John Ambrose McClaren, played by actor Jordan Burtchett in the first film, is Lara Jean’s childhood friend and a recipient of one of her love letters. At the end of the first movie, Lara Jean and Peter reconcile their relationship on a football field, but in the closing credits, John Ambrose McClaren arrives at Lara Jean’s door with her letter… and flowers.

Fans of P.S. I Still Love You, the second book in author Jenny Han’s To All the Boys trilogy, already know that John becomes a recurring character and a potential love interest amid Lara Jean and Peter’s rocky relationship.

The forthcoming sequel will be produced by Matt Kaplan and Dougie Cash with the screenplay created by Sofia Alvarez.
