YA adaptations coming to Netflix in 2021: To All The Boys 3

New year, new content to look forward to from Netflix and that includes YA adaptations. The streaming platform has been doing exceptionally well with providing a home to show and film versions of well-beloved YA book series and standalones. While Netflix isn’t the only streamer catering to the hopes of teen fans and the adults who grew up with these works, they do seem to be the most prolific.

We’ve yet to see concrete release dates for many of the films and series that have us buzzing with excitement. Yes, that still includes the highly anticipated Shadow and Bone series based on the best-selling books by Leigh Bardugo.

Even though Netflix has us waiting with bated breath, and resting on tenterhooks, over these upcoming releases, we can’t seem to not talk about them. Who else is bringing us horror, heists, the impending war with dark forces, the film adaptation of a legendary YA novelist’s work, the conclusion of a rom-com trilogy, and a dystopian fantasy potentially all in one year?

The streamer seems to be carving out space for itself as the premier place for YA content, and we ain’t mad at it. You certainly won’t catch us griping even if waiting for these titles is challenging especially when release dates are still up in the air.

In any case, there’s so much to look forward once the wait is over. Here are six YA adaptations hopefully heading our way in 2021 on Netflix!

1. Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han

The conclusion to the To All the Boys trilogy is slated for release in February. We’re going to be sad to see the film series go, but we’re in for one more twist in Lara Jean and Peter’s love story.

It’s senior year and everything is going perfectly for the young couple. They’ve got plans to attend Stanford together, prom is right around the corner, and soon they’ll be high school graduates heading off to their new life as college students.

But nothing ever stays perfect in life and slowly the plans Lara Jean and Peter have laid out start to unravel. They want to be together, of course, but a class trip to New York City has Lara Jean questioning whether she should be following Peter to Standford. Maybe her journey is meant to begin on the east coast and not staying where things are safe and familiar.

It’s a dilemma Lara Jean is trying to parse through and deal with alongside Peter, but when the choice gets taken from her by an unexpected event, Lara Jean has to figure out what it is she does want for herself and her relationship with Peter.

To All the Boys: Always and Forever will be available to stream February 12
