‘To All the Boys’ Spinoff Series


Madison Yee, Staff Writer

After the immense success following the To All the Boys trilogy, it was reported by Deadline on Mar. 31 that Netflix has a spin-off TV series currently in the making. This future Netflix favorite will star Lara Jean Covey’s younger sister, Kitty, played by Anna Cathcart. 

Led by ACE Entertainment and Awesomeness Productions, the series will follow Kitty while she embarks on her own journey to discover “true love.” Jenny Han, known as the author behind the To All the Boys book series, will be creating, writing, and producing this much anticipated series alongside Siobhan Vivian, who will co-write. Without surprise, this news is thrilling for “TATB fans” especially since it hints that we will get to learn more about Kitty and her personality outside of Lara Jean’s point of view. 

For some background, Kitty played a big role in the To All the Boys trilogy, which includes To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, P.S. I Still Love You, and Always and Forever, Lara Jean. Filling in as the “typical younger sister,” Kitty ultimately represented that love-hate relationship with her siblings that many could relate to. 

“I really liked filming with the three sisters, of course. The fight—like the little run around the bed, fighting and stuff—was super fun when we were all arguing. It might not be fun to fight with your sisters in real life, but on a movie set, it turns out, it’s way better,” Cathcart said to Bustle.

In the first film, she was the one who discovered Lara Jean’s letters, which were top secret notes written to every love interest that Lara Jean had throughout her life. Kitty secretly mailed the private letters to each boy, which in turn revealed a series of events and a compelling plot that audiences adored in this romantic comedy.

Afterward, she continued to be a main role in the next films as she grew throughout her teenage years before the end of Lara Jean’s senior year. Along the way, she was the one to thank for setting up their dad with their neighbor Trina (who ended up marrying their dad), while in the last movie, To All the Boys: Always and Forever, we got to see Kitty in a small long-distance relationship with a boy from South Korea. 

As noted from the last movie, Lara Jean Covey and Peter Kavinsky have gone on with their own lives to college, which means that it is officially time for Kitty to have the spotlight. And after acting as “Cupid” on numerous accounts, it only makes sense for this to happen. 

All in all, the half-hour comedy series is untitled at the moment, and there has been no official announcement by Netflix, or intel on who the cast will be besides Cathcart. Although we don’t know much about the details and whether or not Lana Condor (Lara Jean Covey) and Noah Centineo (Peter Kavinsky) will make an appearance, fans are more excited than ever on what is to come next regarding the series.
