Good morning to only Peter Kavinsky. Nothing else matters this week.
The internet (and me!) has fallen in love with this fictional character from To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, the cutest Netflix rom-com that you’ll ever see. The movie, based on Jenny Han’s novel of the same name, follows teen Lara Jean as everyone she has ever had a crush on all find out… at the same time. Take a moment to let that sink in.
The whole movie was perfect: It was refreshing, delightful, and charming AF. But what everyone is freaking out over is Lara Jean’s fake-turned-real boyfriend in the movie, Peter Kavinsky.
The struggle is real when a fictional character makes you believe in love again. It’s not just me: People are starting to believe that not all men are trash, that love might not actually be fake, and that soulmates transcend all. Between this and Young Bill Anderson™, Hollywood is going to have to cool it for a sec so my heart can go back to being black and cold.
As if things couldn’t get any better, this also happened the same day I watched To All the Boys for the first time, and all of a sudden there was world peace:
I love my Canadian dads. Clearly, this week was a lot. Let’s get to it.

Crazy quick sequel development.
Crazy Rich Asians powered to the No. 1 spot at the box office during its opening weekend—also the best rom-com debut in six years. Unsurprisingly, Warner Bros. already confirmed plans to develop a sequel, just days after opening weekend. This film was the first Hollywood movie in 25 years to have an all-Asian cast, and hopefully this is the first major stepping stone for more Asian representation in Hollywood.

Revivals! Returns! Remakes!
• Returning: Brooklyn Nine-Nine—Our favorite squad from the 99th Precinct began filming its sixth season. ICYMI, we almost lost this gem of a show for good when Fox cancelled the series. Thankfully, a day later, the heroes of NBC rescued it with a 13-episode order. Sadly, we won’t see any new episodes until next year. Cool. Cool. Cool. Cool. Cool.
• Reviving: Veronica Mars—We are thiiiiiiiiis close to getting a reboot of this show about a teen private investigator, starring Kristen Bell, on Hulu. The streaming service is reportedly in the works to strike a deal with the original creator Rob Thomas, and Bell is already on board. While literally every single other detail is TBD, I have a good feeling about this one.
• Returning: Making It—Get ready, stitches, we’re getting more crafty. Before the end of its first season, NBC already renewed this endearing competition show hosted by Parks and Recreation idols Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman. The show was the most-watched summer premiere on the Big 4 networks this season, which is impressive AF.
• Remake: The Hills—The hills are alive with the sound of comebacks! It’s official: After lots of rumors, MTV is bringing back this Los Angeles-based reality show next year. The Hills: New Beginnings will bring back familiar faces such as Heidi and Spencer Pratt, Audrina Patridge, Jason Wahler, and more, to follow their personal and professional lives. Lauren Conrad is probably not coming back, so what’s even the point?

Holy shirtballs! All fans of The Good Place need to download this Google Chrome extension immediately, which immediately transports your internet browser into The Good (or Bad!) Place. This all-new tab page will feature characters, quotes, and photos from the show, in addition to weather updates, calendar reminders, and daily inspiration from the crew.

The third season of the series starts on Sept. 27, and you already know my DVR is set for it.
The cutest challenge of the week.
Welcome to the snoot challenge, where owners make a shape with their hand, and their cutie doggos and puppers run up and put their boop-able noses through the hole. There is nothing sweeter than these good boys and girls running up to you and mastering this trick. @ me on Twitter to send me more of these this weekend.
Until next time, my beautiful trash babies!
