After We Collided is the highly-anticipated sequel to 2019’s After but thanks to the ongoing pandemic, the film’s release date had been thrown into doubt.
If the past few years have shown us anything, it’s that there is a huge appetite for new adult fiction stories, most notably those that fall into the romantic-drama category.
In 2019, movie fans were greeted by a film adaptation of the Anna Todd novel, After, regarded by some as a more innocent version of Fifty Shades of Grey.
The film earned a surprising amount of success and a sequel was quickly announced.
The film was touted for a release in early 2020. However, thanks to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the release of After We Collided was postponed and has left fans craving the continuation of Tessa and Hardin’s story.
After We Collided
After We Collided (also being called After 2) is the highly-anticipated sequel to 2019’s After.
It is based on the 2014 Anna Todd novel of the same name and continues the steamy story of Tessa Young (Josephine Langford) and Hardin Scott (Hero Fiennes-Tiffin) as their love affair faces its biggest test yet after new revelations call into doubt the origins of their relationship.
Filming has already finished
Luckily, filming on After We Collided took place between August 12th and September 16th, 2019.
As of January 2020, it is understood that production on the film was completed and we were simply left needing a release date.
However, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, the whole cinema industry has faced issues with release dates across the board and as such, fans have been left waiting for news on when After We Collided will finally hit cinemas.

After months of speculation, After We Collided’s release date has finally been confirmed as:
- October 2nd, 2020.
After We Collided’s author and producer, Anna Todd, revealed the newly announced release date on July 27th via Instagram alongside a new trailer for the film.
