The sequel to 2019 romantic drama After has arrived in cinemas, with the story of Tessa (Josephine Langford) and Hardin's (Hero Fiennes Tiffin) bumpy relationship continuing for another chapter.


Like the first film in the franchise, the new movie is based on a novel of the same name by Anna Todd, with Just Friends filmmaker Roger Kumble taking on directorial duties this time out.

The first film was a huge hit with teen audiences when it was released last year, scoring impressive box office results despite negative reviews from critics.

The books on which the films are started off as a fan faction written by author Anna Todd on the website Wattpad, following a student at Washington State University who gets caught up in a relationship with One Direction star Harry Styles, while characters based on fellow band members Liam Payne and Zayn Malik were also included.

Read on for everything you need to know about the sequel, including who is in the cast and when it will be released in UK cinemas.

Both trailers were released in July 2020 and hint at more of the same from the first film - with both shouting matches and some more steamy moments equally present.

What is After We Collided about?

The first film in the series introduced us to Tessa Young a dedicated student who has recently left school and who comes to meet and form a relationship with rebel Hardin Scott - leaving her high school sweetheart Noah in the process.

At the start of After We Collided, Hardin and Tessa are no longer together, but Tessa is persuaded to give their relationship another go.

Unsurprisingly, however, this is not without obstacles - with Hardin's disloyalty and Tessa's burgeoning friendship with coworker Trevor just two of the things standing in the way of a problem-free relationship.

Who is in the cast of After We Collided?

Josephine Langford and Hero Fiennes Tiffin reprise their roles as the couple at the centre of the film, while other returning stars include Selma Blair as Carol Young, Shane Paul McGhie as Landon Gibson, Pia Mia as Tristan, Inanna Sarkis as Molly Samuels and Dylan Arnold as Noah Porter.
