Fans of The Kissing Booth, we have good news and bad news for you. Let’s start with the good!
Apparently, while the eagerly anticipated part 2 was being filmed, a third film in the teen romance franchise was also in the works. Yep, the aftermath of The Kissing Booth 2 which premiered on July 24 can still be felt all over the internet as fans who have watched it can’t seem to get over the ending and that heart-rending quote about being worth it. And yet, the streaming giant has given us another thing to get excited about.
Netflix has announced that there’s already a ‘The Kissing Booth 3,’ and with the surprising announcement comes a sneak peek.
The happy news was also shared by the cast themselves during a Youtube live event called #TKBFanFest where they revealed that they have completed shooting before the pandemic, and that they filmed 2 and 3 at the same time. “It was the hardest secret to keep ever,” shared Joey King.
Returning for the third film is the entire cast, including Joey King, Joel Courtney, Jacob Elordi, Taylor Zakhar Perez and Maisie Richardson-Sellers. Vince Marcello, director/producer/writer of the first 2 movies will also be back.
The Kissing Booth 3 picks up from where its predecessor left off: a cliffhanger in which Elle must decide where to go for college. Now, she spends her summer grappling with two equally important choices: will she go to Harvard where her boyfriend, Noah, goes, or Berkeley, where her BFF Lee is going?
The bad news?
Well, this isn’t exactly to be sad about. It’s just that the third film will be available in 2021 (if you expected 2020, you expect too much). And so, even though everything about us is itching to see more of Elle, Noah, and Marco Valentin Peña who instantly became the newest internet crush, we still have another year to wait.
The Kissing Booth is based on the novel of the same name by Beth Reekles. Despite the critics, viewers loved it so much that the original film became the most rewatched movie on Netflix in 2018.
