"We're thrilled to announce that the endlessly charming Ross Butler has joined the cast of the To All the Boys sequel as Trevor Pike," producer Matt Kaplan told EW.

See how they celebrated on set below.

The real-life friendship between Butler and Centineo was on full display when the two attended a Halloween party together in 2018. Butler was dressed as X-Men character Wolverine and Centineo as Gaston from Beauty and the Beast. The video from that night…epic.

The To All the Boys I've Loved Before sequel is now in production. In addition to Centineo and Butler, the movie stars Lana Condor as Lara Jean, Janel Parrish as Margot, John Corbett as Dr. Covey, Anna Cathcart as Kitty and Jordan Fisher as John Ambrose McClaren.

Find out more about the upcoming Netflix movie below.

They're Back

Lana Condor and Noah Centineo return or more adorable romance in the To All the Boys I've Loved Before sequel, based on the second book in the series P.S. I Still Love You, and which is currently filming. The announcement of the sequel was, of course, made in the form of a letter from Netflix. 

"To All The Fans I've Loved Before, I miss you. I know it's only been a few months and I swear I wasn't trying to avoid you, I just didn't know how to answer your question without lying to you.

The truth isn't always simple or straightforward—and as we all know too well, dating contracts have a way of quickly getting complicated. But, the letters are out...it's true. A To All The Boys I've Loved Before sequel is coming to Netflix.

And yes, you can seamlessly continue to run your #Covinsky fan accounts because your dream stars Lana Condor and Noah Centineo are in on it too. So let's do this. I promise the next chapter will be worth the wait!"

The New John Ambrose

Jordan Fisher has joined the cast as John Ambrose, the boy from model UN who never responded to Lara Jean's letter. Fisher is a Disney Channel alum who won DWTS season 25 and recently starred as Mark in Fox's Rent Live, so maybe John Ambrose is a great dancer. 

The Old John Ambrose

Guess we will just be disregarding this mid-credits scene during which John Ambrose arrived at Lara Jean's house with her letter in hand, but that's fine! 

Janel Parrish Returns

Lara Jean isn't going anywhere without her older sister Margot, who also currently stars in Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists on Freeform. 

And So Do the Rest of the Coveys

John Corbett and Anna Cathcart will return as Lara Jean's dad, Dr. Covey, and little sister, Kitty. 

Ross Butler Joins

Because one internet heartthrob was not enough, and two was also not enough, 13 Reasons Why star Ross Butler has joined the cast as Trevor Pike, childhood friend of Peter and Lara Jean. 

Chris Returns

Lara Jean's best friend, played by Madeleine Arthur, will officially be back. 

Meet Stormy

Holland Taylor will play Stormy, the grandmother of John Ambrose McClaren and Lara Jean's friend. 

Say Hello to Trina

Sarayu Blue will play Trina, a neighbor of the Coveys who gets close to Dr. Covey, at least if we're basing this off the books...

New Director

Susan Johnson, who directed the first movie, is stepping back but will still serve as executive producer on the sequel. Michael Fimognari, who was director of photography on the first movie will now direct the second. 

"Directing To All The Boys I've Loved Before has been one of the great experiences of my life, and I am grateful to the fans for their passionate support of the film," Johnson said in a statement. "Due to the timing of my other projects I won't be directing the sequel, but as an executive producer, I am looking forward to continuing to share Lara Jean's story and being part of this franchise."
