It's Official: The Kissing Booth is Coming Back for a Sequel

**Warning: Some Spoilers ahead**

Pucker up and mark your calendars because Netflix has recently announced that there will be a sequel to this romantic teen comedy sensation. I don’t know about you, but my excitement level is through the roof. 

For those who need a little refresher, the first movie centered around Elle Evans (Joey King) and her best friend Lee Flynn (Joel Courtney). To protect their friendship, Elle and Lee made up a long list of rules that they swore to uphold―one of these rules being that Elle has to keep her hands off of Lee’s brother, Noah (Jacob Elordi), under all circumstances. However, Elle unexpectedly falls in love with Noah after setting up a kissing booth at their school carnival.

While we don’t really know a lot about the sequel yet, there are some things we can expect to see.

Release Date

Netflix hasn’t announced an official release date for the movie yet, but there are rumors that the movie production will start later on this year. If that’s the case, the movie will most likely come out sometime in 2020. It may be possible that the sequel will be released around the same time as the first film too, which means May 2020 is a very likely prospect.

Before you panic, let me reassure you that all of your favorite main characters will be returning back to the big screen. Actors Jacob Elordi, Joey King, and Joel Courtney have formally confirmed that they will be resuming their characters’ roles. It’s unclear whether or not other minor characters such as Lee and Noah’s mother (Molly Ringwald) or if Lee’s girlfriend (Meganne Young) will returning. Either way, it’s a relief to know our favorite iconic trio is back at it again.

Possible Plotline

For now, the plotline of the sequel is still up in the air. Unlike the first film, there won’t be a book for the sequel to be based on, so the story can go any direction at this point. It may be possible the sequel will show Elle visiting Noah in college, but I do suspect there may be some trouble in paradise for them. Don’t take my word for it, but it does make sense considering the fact that they had to part ways after Noah left for college. Fingers crossed that this isn’t the case!
