WARNING: Spoilers ahead for After We Fell. You've been warned!
What happens in After We Fell?
After readers will know, After We Collided ends on a huge cliffhanger about Tessa's father. Much of the drama in After We Fell revolves around Tessa and her father, which causes conflict with Hardin and her mother. Tessa is also still planning on moving to Seattle in the third instalment.
The synopsis of After We Fell reads: "Just as Tessa makes the biggest decision of her life, everything changes. Revelations about first her family, and then Hardin’s, throw everything they knew before in doubt and makes their hard-won future together more difficult to claim."
Things start to unravel in Tessa's life in the third book, and her relationship with Hardin takes a turn after he discovers that she's been keeping a huge secret from him – "and rather than being understanding, he turns to sabotage."
The synopsis continues: "Tessa knows Hardin loves her and will do anything to protect her, but there’s a difference between loving someone and being able to have them in your life. This cycle of jealousy, unpredictable anger, and forgiveness is exhausting. She’s never felt so intensely for anyone, so exhilarated by someone’s kiss—but is the irrepressible heat between her and Hardin worth all the drama? Love used to be enough to hold them together. But if Tessa follows her heart now, will it be...the end?"
After We Fell also reveals a huge bombshell about Steph – she reveals that she was never Tessa's friend, and she even attempts to have someone sexually assault Tessa on camera.
After We Fell cast: What characters are in After We Fell?
Tessa and Hardin will obviously be back which means Josephine Langford and Hero Fiennes Tiffin will be back in business as the duo.
The third story also sees Landon, Trevor (Dylan Sprouse), Zed (Samuel Larsen), Steph (Khadijha Red Thunder), Molly (Inanna Sarkis), Tristan (Pia Mia) and others return. There's also a handful of new characters, including Lillian and Riley, who will no doubt make an appearance.
Due to the circumstances around shooting the third and fourth movies in Europe instead of the US, multiple cast members have dropped out and have since been replaced.
Chance Perdomo is replacing Shane Paul McGhie as Landon.
Stephen Moyer is replacing Charlie Weber as Christian Vance.
Arielle Kebbel is replacing Candice King as Kimberly Vance.
Mira Sorvino is replacing Selma Blair as Carol Young.
Carter Jenkins will also join the cast as Robert.
Is there a fourth After book?
Yep, and it's called After Ever Happy. There's also a prequel novel, called Before, which details Hardin's life before he meets Tessa.
After Ever Happy has already been confirmed, and the cast have already filmed it back to back with After We Fell.
In an interview with Teen Vogue, it's now been confirmed that the Before prequel and a brand new sequel that will focus on Hardin and Tessa's kids, Emery and Auden, will also be turned into films.
