‘Riverdale’ Alum Ross Butler Joins ‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ Sequel

It appears Lara Jean is getting an entirely new love interest.

Netflix just added Ross Butler to the cast of the highly anticipated sequel for To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. (You probably recognize him from 13 Reasons Why and Riverdale, where he played Reggie Mantle before getting replaced by Charles Melton in season two.)

In the all-new movie, the 28-year-old actor will play Trevor Pike, a high school student who just so happens to be friends with Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo). Butler celebrated the news by sharing a photo on Twitter, writing, “Casual business calls. But yeah, we’re making a movie. No joke.”

We’re not surprised by the pairing, considering Butler and Centineo are real-life friends. In fact, producer Matt Kaplan revealed that their off-screen friendship played a large role in the casting decision.

“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,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “His real-life friendship with Noah brings a natural chemistry and great rapport to the set, and we can’t wait for fans to see this friendship play out onscreen.”

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before originally hit Netflix in 2018 and starred Centineo, Lana Condor (Lara Jean), Israel Broussard (Josh) and Janel Parrish (Margot). Similar to the first movie, the sequel will be based on the best-selling book series by author Jenny Han.

Poor Lara Jean has no idea what she’s in for.
