After Ever Happy – the final installment is geared up for release!
After We Fell is finally here, and fans are eagerly anticipating the release of the third instalment in the series, After Ever Happy. Tessa and Hardin’s relationship has had various twists and turns, and things aren’t going to be the same after the events of the sequel. But, with their future unknown, this couple’s journey is only just beginning.
After We Fell has already been released in certain parts of the world, but fans of the After series in the United Kingdom and the United States will have to wait to learn what happens next with Tessa and Hardin.
After We Collided saw the couple split up and a potential new love interest for Tessa in the form of Trevor appear on the scene in the third film.
They looked to have patched things up by the finale, but would Tessa’s father’s presence throw things off again? Could we even see Trevor win Tessa’s heart after seeing him practise asking her out in the movie’s credits scene?
*Below are major After We Fell spoilers!
Everything we know about After Ever Happy is included below.
When does After Ever Happy come out?
Fans in some regions may now mark their calendars for the major release of After We Fell. The first wave of release dates for the film were revealed on the official website for numerous European countries and the United States. When it is released on September 1, 2021, audiences in Italy, Poland, and Sweden will be the first to see it.
According to the After Instagram account, there will be a special screening event in the United States on September 30th and October 4th that will include a special featurette that will take you behind the scenes of the filmmaking.
After their brief break in After We Collided, Tessa and Hardin are beginning off a new level of their love in the fresh new film. Of course, they have a lot of ground to make up for, but even after their huge reconciliation, things in their relationship are still a little bumpy. It appears that Hessa will encounter additional challenges as Tessa’s career progresses in Seattle. Hardin appears resolute in the teaser about returning to the United Kingdom after he and Tessa finish college. Plus, new characters may enter the picture — we’ll have to wait and see!
After We Fell is available on Netflix from October 22, so it’ll be a while after the US release, but at least we know it’ll be there. After Ever Happy, the fourth film, will be released in the UK and France via Amazon.
After We Fell and After Ever Happy were both shot at the same time, so the fourth picture may not be too far away. Although no release date has been set, we do know that it will be followed by a prequel and sequel film.
Both the new films are written and directed by After We Fell and After Ever Happy filmmaker Castille Landon, with the prequel focused on a younger Hardin (loosely based on Anna Todd’s) and the sequel focusing on Tessa and Hardin’s children (spoiler alert, sorry).
When will the filming of After Ever Happy begin?
On December 18, filming on both of the future sequels came to an end. Hero’s wrap speech was posted online via the official After Instagram account, and trust us when we say it will give you all the feels.
The cast had been hard at work filming the third and fourth films simultaneously, so fans won’t have to wait long to see them.
What will be the subject of After Ever Happy?
After Ever Happy will be based on the third novel in the series of the same name. According to the summary of the book:
“Everything changes just as Tessa makes the most important decision of her life. Revelations about her family, then Hardin’s, cast doubt on everything they thought they knew before, making their hard-won future together even more difficult to claim.
Tessa’s life starts to unravel. Nothing is as she had imagined. Certainly not her pals. Not her relatives. Hardin, the one guy she should be able to trust, is enraged when he learns of the huge secret she’s been harbouring. Rather than being sympathetic, he resorts to sabotage.
Tessa is aware that Hardin adores her and will go to any length to defend her, but there is a distinction to be made between loving someone and being able to have them in your life. This never-ending cycle of jealousy, erratic wrath, and forgiveness is draining. She’s never felt so strongly for someone, or been so elated by a kiss—but is the undeniable chemistry between her and Hardin worth all the drama? It used to be that love was enough to keep them together. Will it be the end if Tessa follows her heart now?”
Is there anyone new in the cast?
We believe After Ever Happy will bring back the old faces from the previous movies.
Due to the filming being relocated to Bulgaria, the cast will be expanded. Chance Perdomo, who starred in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, will play Landon, a role created by Shane Paul McGhie.
Stephen Moyer of True Blood and Mira Sorvino of Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion have also been cast. In After We Collided, Stephen will play Christian Vance, replacing Charlie Weber. Mira will be replacing Selma Blair in the role of Carol.
Kimberly and Robert will be played by Arielle Kebbel and Carter Jenkins, respectively. Candice King, who starred in The Vampire Diaries, originally played Kimberly. Karen will also be recast with Frances Turner, marking the second time the part has been redone. Nora is played by Kiana Maderia, a new character who has yet to be seen in the series.
Tessa and Hardin will be played by Josephine Langford and Hero Fiennes Tiffin, respectively, however there have been some forced cast changes.
Stefan Rollins (Richard Young), Karimah Westbrook (Karen), Charlie Weber (Christian), Candice King (Kimberly), and Selma Blair (Carol Young) have not returned due to scheduling issues and the decision to transfer filming to Bulgaria.
Chance Perdomo (Landon), Atanas Srebrev (Richard Young), Frances Turner (Karen), Stephen Moyer (Christian), Arielle Kebbel (Kimberly), and Mira Sorvino have been recast in their roles (Carol Young).
Louise Lombard will play Trish, Rob Estes will play Ken, Carter Jenkins will play Robert, Angela Sari will play Lillian, and Anton Kottas will play Smith Vance in After We Fell.
Because After Ever Happy and After We Fell were shot at the same time, we can expect everyone to return for the fourth film, which will be the final outing for Langford and Tiffin as Tessa and Hardin.
Despite the fact that the After series will continue with two more films, the duo will not reprise their roles because Hardin will be younger in the prequel and the pair will be older in the proposed sequel.
“It feels like the end of an era, which is tragic. It’s coming to a close, all these people you’ve worked with and this character you’ve grown to love “While chatting with Seventeen, Langford discussed filming the final two films.
“But it must come to an end because you require it. Otherwise, there would be a lot of people who are dissatisfied. It’s such a wonderful honour to be able to put a character’s arc and story to a close.”
Landon is most anxious for audiences to watch in the third film’s more emotional scenes, which will feature “Hero and Jo turning in these fantastic performances, and really the entire group.”
She told Teen Vogue, “There’s some really amazing stuff with Hardin’s dad that I didn’t anticipate to be as devastating as it was, since the performers did such a good job.”
What is the plot of After Ever Happy in the third instalment?
If the teaser and the second film weren’t enough to make you psyched for the third, here’s the official synopsis to add to the excitement:
“As Tessa prepares to go to Seattle for her dream career, Hardin’s jealousy and unpredictable behaviour reach a fever pitch, threatening to shatter their strong love,” it says.
“When Tessa’s father reappears and disturbing truths about Hardin’s family surface, their situation becomes even more difficult. Tessa and Hardin must ultimately determine whether their love is worth fighting for or whether they should part ways.”
As After series will conclude with After Ever Happy, fans are really excited and anxious fore the last movie. After Ever Happy is certainly one of the awaited movies of the year.
