On October 23, 2020, fans all over the world rejoiced as the second After movie, After We Collided, finally came out! But now that it’s here, we have a lot of questions. Like, is there going to be another After movie or was that the last one? And if there is going to be a third flick, what do we know about it so far?
Well guys, we have some good news for you — Hero Fiennes-Tiffen and Josephine Langford confirmed via Twitter on September 3, 2020, that there’s going to be not one, but two more After movies after After We Collided!
“There have been lots of people working really hard behind the scenes and we can finally tell you guys that the third and fourth movies are officially going into production,” they said at the time. “Keep your eyes on the After pages around the world for updates.”
This is the best news ever! So is the full cast going to return for the third movie? What’s going to go down? And when will it come out? Here’s everything we know so far about After We Fell.
What Is ‘After We Fell’ Going To Be About?
As fans know, the movies are based off a widely popular One Direction fan fiction written by Anna Todd. The story started off on Wattpad, but after getting millions of views, it was published into a five-part book series, and later turned into a film series.
So thankfully, we know what the movie is going to be about based on what the third book is about. Here’s the official synopsis:
“Just as Tessa makes the biggest decision of her life, everything changes. Revelations about first her family, and then Hardin’s, throw everything they knew before in doubt and makes their hard-won future together more difficult to claim.
Tessa’s life begins to come unglued. Nothing is what she thought it was. Not her friends. Not her family. The one person she should be able to rely on, Hardin, is furious when he discovers the massive secret she’s been keeping. And rather than being understanding, he turns to sabotage.
Tessa knows Hardin loves her and will do anything to protect her, but there’s a difference between loving someone and being able to have them in your life. This cycle of jealousy, unpredictable anger, and forgiveness is exhausting. She’s never felt so intensely for anyone, so exhilarated by someone’s kiss — but is the irrepressible heat between her and Hardin worth all the drama? Love used to be enough to hold them together. But if Tessa follows her heart now, will it be… the end?”
Will All The Stars Return For The Third Movie?
Fiennes-Tiffen, Langford, Dylan Sprouse, Khadijha Red Thunder, Inanna Sarkis and Pia Mia have all confirmed that they are returning for the third film. Unfortunately, Shane Paul McGhie has announced that he will not reprise his role in the next part of the series.
“It is with a heavy heart that I am announcing I will not be filming in Bulgaria,” the actor, who played Landon, wrote on his Instagram Stories. “We could not come to an agreement and I had to make a really tough call. I had to stand up for me, the way that Landon would. I am so grateful to you all for welcoming me into the After family and for supporting me along this incredible journey. I have felt your love from around the world and that has been the biggest blessing and honor. I have seen how, for a lot of you, After has changed your lives and been a light during dark times.”
Instead, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star Chance Perdomo will be taking over the role as Landon.
Are Any Other New Stars Joining The Cast?
Stephen Moyer (who previously acted in True Blood, The Gifted and more) and Mira Sorvino (who fans may recognize from Mighty Aphrodite) have also been added to the cast. Moyer is going to play Christian Vance, replacing Charlie Weber, while Sorvino is going to replace Selma Blair as Carol. Plus, John Tucker Must Die alum Arielle Kebbel has also joined the cast as Kimberly (taking over for Candice King), Men or Mice actress Frances Turner will now play Karen instead of Karimah Westbrook, Trinkets star Kiana Maderia is going to play a new character named Nora and Famous in Love actor Carter Jenkins is set to star as another new character named Robert.
Has Filming For ‘After We Fell’ Started Yet?
Yep, the official After Instagram account shared some pics from on set in Bulgaria on October 19, 2020, and naturally, it sent the entire internet into a frenzy.
There’s no release date for it just yet, but we hope they announce something soon!
