If you’re obsessed with the After film series on Netflix, you aren’t the only one. The steamy romantic drama movies have captured the attention of millions of viewers, and they are nowhere near finished with their reign. Currently burning up Netflix, all of the movies in the franchise will get you all hot and bothered before the release of the highly anticipated future projects, including a sequel and a prequel.
Based on the novels by Anna Todd, the first of which was originally released as a reported One Direction fanfiction on Wattpad, the After movies follow college student Tessa Young (Josephine Langford) as she meets the mysterious Hardin Scott (Hero Fiennes Tiffin) and embarks on her first love. After We Collided continues telling the tale of Tessa and Hardin’s complicated romance.
Even though all of the entries in the series have been critically panned so far, the After movies have staked their claim at both the box office and on Netflix. After We Collided made $48 million worldwide in 2020, a feat in and of itself in the pandemic era. The saga continued with After We Fell in 2021, After Ever Happy in 2022, and After Everything in 2023.
As previously mentioned, another sequel and a prequel have been placed in development, and when they are eventually released, they will be hits just like the first five movies. Without a doubt, the entire After series will remain among the sexiest movies to watch on Netflix for quite some time, and as of December 2023, four of them are available on Netflix right now.
