Netflix’s popular teen romantic dramedy film franchise The Kissing Booth is packed with soapy twists, but here’s one surprise fans may well not have seen coming: The Kissing Booth 3 was filmed in secret alongside The Kissing Booth 2, and the third movie is set for release next year. Check out Netflix’s official sneak peek at the third film below.
The Kissing Booth 3
Don’t you just hate it when one of the most prestigious universities in the world won’t stop calling when all that’s necessary to do is enter the bone zone with your boyfriend? Super annoying, right? It’s even worse when you’ve been accepted in to both Harvard and Berkeley, but your boyfriend is going to Harvard and your closest friend is going to Berkeley. I mean, how are you likely to choose? It’s all so relatable!
Vince Marcello, who co-wrote and directed the first two movies, quietly filmed the next movie in South Africa at the same time as he was shooting the next movie, and the main trio of cast members – Joey King (Elle), Jacob Elordi (Noah), and Joel Courtney (Lee) – are typical back again to reprise their roles. The third film accumulates where the 2nd movie left off, following Elle as she’s forced to make a tough decision about which college to go to – and seemingly, which relationship in her life she values more. Taylor Zakhar Perez, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Meganne Young, and Molly Ringwald will also be back again to bring their characters your once more.
The Kissing Booth was the most re-watched movie on Netflix in 2018, and despite it earning a dismal 17% on Rotten Tomatoes and being criticized for being sexist, regressive, and objectively bad, Netflix gave it a sequel, which just arrived last Friday. The sequel didn’t fare much better critically, pulling in just a 26% on Rotten Tomatoes, but Netflix evidently knew why these films were critic-proof and that there is enough of a built-in audience in place to justify returning to that world all over again.
The Kissing Booth 3 is confirmed going to Netflix some time in 2021.
