'To All the Boys' Officially Recasts John Ambrose, and Fans Have Some THOUGHTS

It's been hinted at, but last night Netflix made it official—your John Ambrose will be played by a new actor in the To All the Boys I've Loved Before sequel. Instead of Jordan Burtchett, the new John Ambrose is Jordan Fisher. If he looks super-familiar, it's because Jordan won the 25th season of Dancing with the Stars and starred as Mark in RENT: Live.

It's been hinted at, but last night Netflix made it official—your John Ambrose will be played by a new actor in the To All the Boys I've Loved Before sequel. Instead of Jordan Burtchett, who showed up at the door with one of Lara Jean's letters, the new John Ambrose is Jordan Fisher. If he looks super-familiar, it's because Jordan won the 25th season of Dancing with the Stars and starred as Mark in RENT: Live. (When I turned on the live show, I immediately wondered who that gorgeous guy playing Mark was, so I'm really excited about the news.)

Producer Matt Kaplan said, "Jordan’s charisma practically leaps off the screen with anything he does, whether it’s acting, singing, or dancing. There isn’t a more perfect guy who could believably shake things up in Lara Jean and Peter’s world."

The sequel, which in the book series by Jenny Han is called P.S. I Still Love You, starts with the return of John Ambrose and continues with the love triangle. Jordan was awed by the positive reaction online, saying, "I’m losing my mind. My heart is so full."

Fans were, uh, torn, to put it mildly. Some were SUPER into it and now want Lara Jean and John Ambrose to ride off into the sunset together, but some were hoping to keep the original actor. Some were just confused, which, fair.

Here's the official announcement:

And here are just a few of the many, many, MANY reactions:
