'After' Franchise to Expand with Hardin Prequel & Next Generation Sequel

The After franchise is getting two new movies!

Deadline reports that Castille Landon, who has directed the third and fourth films, is set to direct two new future installments in the franchise.

The prequel will be loosely based on Anna Todd‘s book “Before”, which follows Hardin as he navigates his first love before he met Tessa.

The sequel will focus on the next generation in the After universe, centering on the lives of Tessa and Hardin’s children, Emery and Auden, and their cousin Addy as they grow up.

Hero Fiennes Tiffin, who has played Hardin in all four of the After films, will not reprise his role for the prequel. He and Josephine Langford will also not appear in the sequel, which features Tessa and Hardin in supporting roles.

Castille said in a statement, “Seeing After We Fell and After Ever Happy come together in the edit has inspired us to continue expanding the universe, exploring the origins of the characters we already know and love and giving life to the next generation. I’m excited to have the opportunity to broaden the relatable themes already established in the series and introduce Hardin and Tessa’s teenage children to a modern landscape.”
