The adorable (and popular) Netflix rom-com To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is almost definitely getting a sequel, the Hollywood Reporter revealed on Tuesday. A follow-up to To All the Boys is “one of the first movies being discussed” under a new Paramount-Netflix deal in which the major studio will create content for the streaming service.

But forget all the Hollywood business details — all we want to know is whether or not Noah Centineo’s Peter Kavinsky will continue being the perfect boy to Lana Condor’s Lara Jean Covey. Please give us 90 minutes of him smiling at her and treating her respectfully!

Barracoon, the recently discovered book by Harlem Renaissance author Zora Neale Hurston, is now being adapted into a TV series by Lionsgate and rapper Common’s Freedom Road Productions, Deadline reported on Tuesday. The book is a nonfiction work based on Hurston’s interviews with Cudjo Lewis, the last known survivor of the Middle Passage — the trade route by which enslaved Africans were forcibly transported to the Americas.

Barracoon was never published in Hurston’s lifetime, but the manuscript was preserved and the book was published in full for the first time in 2018.
