To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You on Netflix: When can you tune in?
The sequel to beloved teen rom-com To All the Boys I've Loved Before is coming to Netflix this February.
Netflix is bringing rom-coms back, big time. In an age when traditional film studios seem to have lost interest in the once lucrative niche, the streaming giant is consistently filling the gap, to great success. Titles like Always Be My Maybe, Set It Up and Someone Great enjoyed tremendous hype with both fans and critics, relying on established tropes to deliver touching, feel-good stories and breathing new life into the genre.
That being said, none of Netflix's rom-coms so far has been more successful than To All the Boys I've Loved Before, which came out in 2018. Based on Jenny Han's popular YA novel of the same name, the movie was a massive hit for the streamer. It currently has a 97% score on Rotten Tomatoes, with plenty of users on social media admitting to indulging in repeat viewings.
Given the buzz, Netflix committed to adapting the other two other novels in the series as well. The first sequel, To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, is coming out this February. Here's everything you need to know to tune in for To All the Boys 2.

What is To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You about?
Need a refresher? In the first movie, high school junior Lara Jean's secret love letters get mailed to each of her five crushes, so she quickly finds her quiet existence turned upside down. Since one of her crushes is her sister's ex-boyfriend, she decides to pretend to date Peter Kavinsky, another former crush, to avoid any suspicions. Since Peter wants to make his ex-girlfriend jealous, he agrees. Needless to say, their fake dating leads to something more.
In To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, Lara Jean and Peter are now an official couple. But when John Ambrose, another recipient of one of Lara Jean's old love letters, suddenly becomes a part of her life again, things get more complicated.

So far, all signs lead to yes. The trailer looks promising, the story seems just as adorable as in the first movie and the marketing has generated plenty of buzz.
