“After Everything” Drops Curtain on The After Franchise
The newest chapter of the teen heartthrob film franchise is bringing it to its conclusion. “After Everything,” based on the After series written by Anna Todd will have one last rodeo before the curtains close on Hardin and Tessa’s turbulent love story. Four films (“After,” “After We Collided,” “After We Fell,” and “After Ever Happy”) have been released thus far and now “After Everything” will get both a cinematic and streaming service release on Sept.13 and Oct.6 respectively.
Hardin (Hero Fiennes Tiffin) and Tessa (Josephine Langford) have had quite a relationship. Their on-again-off-again romance has captivated audiences worldwide and led to a religious following for both the books and films. “After” introduced the world to the main characters where the good girl (Tessa) fell in love with the bad boy (Hardin).
In “After We Collided,” their relationship hits a turbulence; they fight, break up, make up, and then break up again. Family interference does little to mend the strained bond between the couple. When they rekindle their romance (again), seeds of distrust are planted when old flames and new romantic interests pop up in “After We Fell” but through it all, Hardin and Tessa stay strong. They however fall apart (again) in “After Ever Happy” due to a misunderstanding.
“After Everything” follows Hardin as he tries to win Tessa back. He travels to Lisbon to get her to forgive him, but she tells him to move on and be happy. He also faces challenges at work when his publisher pressures him to complete his next best-seller. While in Lisbon, Hardin confronts enemies from the past and also has to deal with an ex-girlfriend he wronged. Whether or not Hardin and Tessa will finally be together forever is anyone’s guess.
Joining Tiffin and Langford to reprise their roles are Louise Lombard, Chance Perdomo, Stephen Moyer, Rob Estes, Arielle Kebbel, and Carter Jenkins. Mimi Keene, Benjamin Mascolo, Kiana Madeira, Cora Kirk, and Aya Ivanova will be making first-time appearances.
Castille Landon will be returning as the film’s director. She had previously worked on “After We Fell” and “After Ever Happy.” The film is produced by Voltage Pictures in conjunction with Wattpad Entertainment.
