Release Date

Castille Landon announced in April 2021 that a prequel after the final movie is coming, Landon told Teen Vogue:

“The After universe just keeps expanding,” she said. “The fandom, and how excited they are and their input, inspires us all as creators every single day.”

There is no news about the release date of the prequel. The fifth installment was released. So, fans will have to wait for the most awaited prequel movie. There is no official announcement regarding the production of Before.


The official book synopsis of the Before movie is as follows;

“BEFORE Hardin met Tessa he was a raging storm. DURING those first moments they met, he realized he needed to keep her for himself — his life depended on it. AFTER they got together, the world would never be the same.

Hardin and Tessa’s dramatic love affair became a vortex pulling in everyone around them. For the first time, these others are given voice as they appear before, during, and after the events in the original After novels.

Alongside them, Hardin’s account of his first encounters with Tessa—which will change what you thought you knew about the brooding boy and the angel who loved him.”

According to director Director Castille Landon, we will get to see what Hardin went through and all the trauma with his family and relationships and we will see more of the business before Hardin met Tessa.


Even though the prequel film is based on Hardin’s character, Hero Fiennes Tiffin will not be coming back to reprise his role. We will see the younger version of Hardin, which is a little hard for Hero as the actor is 25. It is a little early to say which characters will be returning to reprise their roles.


Fans should be excited to see their favorite Hardin returning to their screens and we will get to see his difficult past unfold to us.
