“After” is officially coming to Netflix. The romantic drama will start steaming up the streaming service this fall.

Netflix officially announced October release dates, and “After” is confirmed to drop in the U.S. on Wednesday, Oct. 9. New titles usually start streaming around 3 a.m. EDT on release day.

“After” is based on Wattpad author Anna Todd's best-selling novel of the same title. The college-set romance follows freshman good girl Tessa (Josephine Langford) as she starts her first semester and meets Hardin Scott (Hero Fiennes Tiffin), a brooding rebel who turns her world upside down. Tessa starts questioning what she really wants. The cast also includes Pia Mia, Selma Blair, Jennifer Beals and Peter Gallagher.

Released in theaters in April, the movie was directed by Jenny Gage and written by Susan McMartin while Todd, who initially wrote the story as One Direction fanfiction, served as executive producer.

Readers will notice changes to the novel, but Todd told International Business Times that she supported and even encouraged most of the differences. She added that Langford was especially protective of her character when questionable changes were suggested.

“There were some times where it would be something that just doesn’t make sense,” Todd told IBT earlier this year, “and Josephine was really good at being like the Tessa police or the ‘After’ police, where she’s like, ‘No, that wouldn’t happen.’”

The movie was reportedly made for just $14 million, and it went on to earn $69.5 million at the worldwide box office. It’s also nominated for the drama movie of 2019 at the People’s Choice Awards.

Fans will want to stream “After” on Netflix before the sequel comes out. “After We Collided” recently wrapped filming in Atlanta and is set to come out in 2020. Todd co-wrote the script with Mario Celaya.
