To All The Boys I've Loved Before Sequel Casts 13 Reasons Why Actor Ross Butler

This breakout star is keeping his business at Netflix

Ross Butler, who stars as Zach Dempsey on Netflix's original drama series 13 Reasons Why, has joined the cast of the yet-untitled To All the Boys I've Loved Before sequel, which is also set up at the streaming giant with director Michael Fimognari and screenwriters Sofia Alvarez and Jenny Han, the author of the book upon which the film is based. 

Entertainment Weekly broke the news of Butler's casting, announcing that he will take on the role of Trevor Pike, the best friend of Noah Centineo's Peter Kavinsky. 

In the first To All the Boys I've Loved Before film, an adaptation of Han's best-selling young adult novel of the same name, Peter was the fake-turned-real-boyfriend of Lana Condor's Lara Jean Covey, who will experience some relationship troubles and find herself torn between Peter and a dashing dude by the name of John Ambrose McClaren, played by Jordan Fisher. If he wants to prove to Lara Jean how much he truly loves her — and stop John Ambrose from getting in the way — Peter will need all the help he can get. And that starts with Trevor. 

"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," the film's producer Matt Kaplan said in a statement accompanying Butler's casting. "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."

Alongside the news, EW also unveiled a heartwarming picture of Butler and Centineo hamming it up behind the scenes. Check it out below.

Netflix revealed plans for a To All the Boys I've Loved Before sequel in December of last year, just four months after the film premiered on the platform. Considering the recent casting of Fisher as John Ambrose and now Butler as Trevor, it seems evident that the follow-up flick will adapt Han's P.S. I Still Love You, the second novel in her three-book series centered on Lara Jean Covey. A third book, Always and Forever, Lara Jean, was published in 2017, and has fans hoping that Netflix will greenlight another film based on that story to wrap up the To All the Boys movie trilogy. 

Butler seems a fantastic choice to portray Trevor in the To All the Boys I've Loved Before sequel. He's a rising star with chops for days, and has experience playing teen characters through his roles on 13 Reasons Why and Riverdale. (If you don't remember, Butler was the original Reggie Mantle before he left the show to focus on 13 Reasons Why.) Additionally, Butler's established chemistry with Centineo will undoubtedly serve him well, as he enters a production whose cast already has sparks flying between them. We're keen to see what Butler brings to the upcoming film. 

Netflix hasn't set a release date for the To All the Boys I've Loved Before sequel as of this writing. We'll update you as soon as the streamer makes that announcement.
